Happy Sunday bookworms!

I hope everyone had a wonderful & productive week and weekend!  Anyone have anything exciting going on?  My weekend was full of tumbling, basketball, lacrosse, cheer competitions… Such is the life of a Mom right?

Let’s see what I’ve been reading lately…

*Bookish Weekly Wrap-Up is a weekly post where I feature what posts were published on the blog for the past week, any bookish/blog happenings, what I recently finished reading, what I am currently reading, what I will be reading next, noteworthy posts around the bookish blogosphere, and any interesting bookish articles I came across.

» Every Heart A Doorway (Wayward Children #1) by Seanan McGuire

EveryHeartaDoorway

5-Star Rating System

A short novella that explores what happens to children after they return from the fantastical world they’ve traveled to.  This one didn’t exactly live up to the hype for me.

» Where the River Parts by Radhika Swarup

5-Star Rating System

*4.5 stars*

This book is a historical romance at its core, but it was so much more than that.  Where the River Parts is a historical fiction about the partition of Indian in 1947 into India & Pakistan.  It explores the tensions between the Muslim & Hindu people during that time.  This book is truly a hidden gem.

» Arrow’s Flight (Valdemar: Heralds of Valdemar #2) by Mercedes Lackey

*3.5 Stars*

The second book in the Heralds of Valdemar series that I am reading to participate in #ReadingValdemar.  Much like the first book there were aspect about this book I highly enjoyed, and others…not so much.

» Everyone Brave is Forgiven by Chris Cleave

I don’t think I’ve ever laughed out loud during a WWII historical fiction book…  Chris Cleave’s dry humor & witty banter was on point!
