Happy Sunday bookworms!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful day. NFL football is back and my Packers won today, so today has been a good day 🙂
Let’s see what I’ve read and blogged this month so far…
*Bookish Weekly Wrap-Up is a weekly post where I feature what books I’ve been reading, which books are on my upcoming TBR, what posts were published on the blog for the past week, any bookish news I came across, and noteworthy posts from around the bookish community.
Things were a bit chaotic this past week with my children starting online schooling. To say I’m a bit overwhelmed would be an understatement, BUT I know that we will adjust to the curriculum and our new schedule soon. I’m doing my best to not stress out and take things one day at a time.
Recently Finished Reading:
» The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett
This book was compulsively readable. The Vanishing Half dives into racial topics like colorism and racial passing, both of which I haven’t read much about within books.
» You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson
This was a sweet YA contemporary with a queer black main character. If you enjoy YA books centering around prom, this will be your jam. While I enjoyed many aspects of this book, I just wasn’t feeling it. I do think this is an excellent book, but just not my personal cup of tea.
» When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi
One of the most inspirational and emotional memoirs I’ve ever read. I’ll be adding this to my favorite books of 2020 list.
» The Book of Two Ways by Jodi Picoult
» The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
What Am I Reading Next?:
» Front Desk by Kelly Yang
Mia Tang has a lot of secrets.
Number 1: She lives in a motel, not a big house. Every day, while her immigrant parents clean the rooms, ten-year-old Mia manages the front desk of the Calivista Motel and tends to its guests.
Number 2: Her parents hide immigrants. And if the mean motel owner, Mr. Yao, finds out they’ve been letting them stay in the empty rooms for free, the Tangs will be doomed.
Number 3: She wants to be a writer. But how can she when her mom thinks she should stick to math because English is not her first language?
It will take all of Mia’s courage, kindness, and hard work to get through this year. Will she be able to hold on to her job, help the immigrants and guests, escape Mr. Yao, and go for her dreams?
