Features, Wrap Ups & Hauls

Bookish Weekly Wrap-Up: 10/1 – 10/18/20


Happy Sunday bookworms!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  Since I’ve been working every Saturday since the end of August, weekends seem to pass by far too quickly for my liking.

Let’s see what I’ve been reading & blogging so far this month…

*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.


Bookish Happenings (1)

We are about half way through the first semester of online schooling for my kids.  To say this experience has been a challenge while also working part-time would be an understatement.  I honestly have no idea how full time working parents are managing it all.  I have about 8 more weeks before my kids have the option to return to in-person learning.  I’m trying to stay positive and keep holding on.   I just need to keep my eye on the prize.

» The Burning God (The Poppy War #3) by R.F. Kuang



The exciting end to The Poppy War trilogy, R. F. Kuang’s acclaimed, award-winning epic fantasy that combines the history of twentieth-century China with a gripping world of gods and monsters, to devastating, enthralling effect.
After saving her nation of Nikan from foreign invaders and battling the evil Empress Su Daji in a brutal civil war, Fang Runin was betrayed by allies and left for dead. 
Despite her losses, Rin hasn’t given up on those for whom she has sacrificed so much—the people of the southern provinces and especially Tikany, the village that is her home. Returning to her roots, Rin meets difficult challenges—and unexpected opportunities. While her new allies in the Southern Coalition leadership are sly and untrustworthy, Rin quickly realizes that the real power in Nikan lies with the millions of common people who thirst for vengeance and revere her as a goddess of salvation. 
Backed by the masses and her Southern Army, Rin will use every weapon to defeat the Dragon Republic, the colonizing Hesperians, and all who threaten the shamanic arts and their practitioners. As her power and influence grows, though, will she be strong enough to resist the Phoenix’s intoxicating voice urging her to burn the world and everything in it?
