Happy Sunday bookworms!
I hope everyone had a wonderful week & weekend! How is everyone?
I had an AMAZING reading week, so let’s see what I’ve been reading…
*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.
After another busy week with working & online schooling, I am thrilled that my kids are on holiday break this coming week. I think we are all ready for an online schooling break! Also, extra time for READING!
Recently Finished Reading:
» The Burning God (The Poppy War #3) by R.F. Kuang
The ending to this amazing trilogy was as brutal & soul crushing as I was anticipating. The way Kuang ends this was perfection.
» Where the Crawdad’s Sing by Delia Owens
I finally broke down and picked this book up. I had been putting it off for years because of the hype. While I did love this book, I’m not exactly sure it was YEARS on the best sellers list good, but it was very good.
» Before the Ever After by Jacqueline Woodson
Jacqueline Woodson does it again! What a heartbreaking book about the effects of CTE on a family.
» This Book is Anti-Racist by Tiffany Jewell
» When Stars are Scattered by Victoria Jamieson and Omar Mohamed
» American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins
Status: Just starting
What Am I Reading Next?:
» The Camelot Betrayal (Camelot Rising #2) by Kiersten White
The second book in a new fantasy trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Kiersten White, exploring the nature of self, the inevitable cost of progress, and, of course, magic and romance and betrayal so epic Queen Guinevere remains the most famous queen who never lived.
EVERYTHING IS AS IT SHOULD BE IN CAMELOT: King Arthur is expanding his kingdom’s influence with Queen Guinevere at his side. Yet every night, dreams of darkness and unknowable power plague her.
Guinevere might have accepted her role, but she still cannot find a place for herself in all of it. The closer she gets to Brangien, pining for her lost love Isolde, Lancelot, fighting to prove her worth as Queen’s knight, and Arthur, everything to everyone and thus never quite enough for Guinevere–the more she realizes how empty she is. She has no sense of who she truly was before she was Guinevere. The more she tries to claim herself as queen, the more she wonders if Mordred was right: she doesn’t belong. She never will.
When a rescue goes awry and results in the death of something precious, a devastated Guinevere returns to Camelot to find the greatest threat yet has arrived. Not in the form of the Dark Queen or an invading army, but in the form of the real Guinevere’s younger sister. Is her deception at an end? And who is she really deceiving–Camelot, or herself?
