This Week in Reading: Poppy War, more Assassins, and Wayward Children

This week will be a fairly slow week for me reading-wise as I’ll be spending a lot of time prepping for the Fancy Tea Book Club meeting I’ll be hosting on Sunday so that won’t leave me with a ton of down-time. Going to whittle away at some books nonetheless!

First up is The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang. I started this near the end of last week and am about fifteen percent into it. It’s been a good read so far, really enjoying the author’s voice and the main pov character of Rin and her determination to live the kind of life she wants instead of what others want for her.

On audio I have two books planned this week. Up first is a novella, Beneath the Sugar Sky by Seanan McGuire, the latest of her Wayward Children stories–a series about kids that went through portal worlds and lived there for a while and then came back to the real world have to figure out how to readjust (or not as the case may be). The first one I really liked the beginning of but then it sort of lost me with the whole murder/mystery thing. The second book I absolutely adored. I am looking forward to this one and also curious as to what I’ll think of it compared to the other two.

The second audio book I have on queue is Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff, the second in the Nevernight series. Since I really loved the first one (review coming sometime this week), I’m super pumped about this next one.

That’s all I have planned, and we’ll see how much I actually manage to read with all the stuff I have going on. Hopefully will at least be able to finish two books this week!

What is everyone else reading this week? Leave a message in the comments, always curious to see what others are enjoying! Have a great week!

  1. I’m currently reading Fire Dance by Ilana C. Myer and then either The Poppy War or something more contemporary! Glad to hear that you’re enjoying the The Poppy War–I’ve heard a LOT of great things about it and I’m excited to dive into it. 🙂

    1. So far so good! I’ve heard it gets dark later on which I am ok with but interested to see how dark… 🙂

      Fire Dance looks really good, how are you liking it? Just added it to my tbr list.

      1. I’m utterly in love with it and I’m only 10% of the way through. And it’s already making me cry. 🙂 I definitely recommend reading Last Song Before Night beforehand.

WtF do you think?
