Top Ten Tuesday – September 1st, 2020

Alright, I'm a little behind in the posting this week. In my defense, work resumed, and no matter how much I love it, it's exhausting. I've got a ton of prep work to do before I get back into the swing of things. Hopefully I am able to keep on top of everything!

So, for this Top Ten Tuesday, I present my selection of books that make me hungry, in no particular order. Some of these I have read, and some of them are just on my TBR. If you've read one, drop a comment below and let me know how it was!

The Project – Book Review

The Project follows two sisters - Lo and Bea. Courtney splits the narrative so that we're following Bea in 2012 and Lo in 2017. Bea's narration follows her as she meets Lev Warren for the first time, learns about The Unity Project, and eventually joins his organization. On the other hand, Lo is working at an investigative magazine and is initially interested in The Unity Project because she hasn't had contact with her sister and wants to find out what happened to her. Both of them discover more about Lev Warren and his vision as the story unfolds.

The Greenhollow Duology – Book Review(s)!

Silver in the Wood is the first book in the Silver in the Wood is the first book in the Greenhollow duology from debut author Emily Tesh. It's a short novella, coming in at 96 pages in my edition, but despite the small page size, it does manage to pack an emotional punch. From the perspective of Tobias Finch, the Wild Man of Greenhollow, the story begins when Henry Silver purchases Greenhollow Hall.

The Burning God – Book Review

The Burning God is the third and final book in R.F. Kuang’s epic fantasy series, The Poppy Wars. After the events of the second book, Rin and Kitay find themselves working with the Southern Coalition.

Nothing will stop her from ensuring Nikan is free, and she is willing to burn anything or anyone that stands in her way.

WWW Wednesday – August 19th, 2020

I’m currently reading The Burning God by R. F. Kuang. The Burning God is the final novel in the epic fantasy series, The Poppy Wars. Almost all of her allies have betrayed Rin, but that won’t stop her from burning everything in her way as part of her quest for revenge. Rin will free Nikan, and protect it from the Hesperians attempting to colonize it or die trying. Kitay is the only friend she can count on, now that she and Nezha are on opposite sides of the conflict.

Jade City – Book Review

Jade City is this intricately crafted urban fantasy series where jade can grant trained fighters superhuman powers. Proper training is essential – too much jade too soon can give you the Itches, which can drive you mad. This unique jade comes from Kekon, an island inhabited by two crime syndicates. Tensions have been rising on the island until war breaks out between the No Peak Clan and the Mountain Clan.
