What I’m currently reading…
The Obelisk Gate by N.K. Jemisin : “The season of endings grows darker, civilization fades into the long cold night. Essun — once Damaya, once Syenite, now avenger — has found shelter, but not her daughter. Instead there is Alabaster Tenring, destroyer of the world, with a request. But if Essun does what he asks, it would seal the fate of the Stillness forever. Far away, her daughter Nassun is growing in power — and her choices will break the world.”
The Dragon Republic by R.F. Kuang : “Three times throughout its history, Nikan has fought for its survival in the bloody Poppy Wars. Though the third battle has just ended, shaman and warrior Rin cannot forget the atrocity she committed to save her people. Now she is on the run from her guilt, the opium addiction that holds her like a vice, and the murderous commands of the fiery Phoenix—the vengeful god who has blessed Rin with her fearsome power.”
What I just finished reading…
Allegedly by Tiffany D. Jackson : This book started off with a bang. I listened to the audio and finished it in one sitting. I was so enthralled and engaged by the story and the outcome. A 9 year old convicted of murdering a 3 month old infant. The challenges Mary faced while fighting for her innocence as well as her freedom.
Monday’s Not Coming Tiffany D. Jackson : This book will always hold a special place in my heart and I’ll definitely be picking up the physical copy. I started the audio and also finished it within a sitting. That’s how deep I was into this book and the story, I couldn’t put it down. I needed to know what happened. It’s a tough deep read, but It’s a story that needs to be heard. An outstanding read.
Becoming by Michelle Obama : I really enjoyed listening to this audio being narrated by the queen herself. Listening to her backstory and how Barrack came to be president and what they did with their life before that.
What I’m reading next:
The Burning God by R.F. Kuang : I received this ARC from Netgalley. “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.”
