Weekly Wrap Up – September 16

weekly wrap up

I can’t believe it’s halfway through September already. It’s been kind of a weird month so far. For almost two weeks, I only got through one book (hence the lack of wrap up last week). But this week, I stepped up my game and finished a total of three books. The best part: I loved all of them.

The first book I read this week is The Impossible Girl by Lydia Kang. This is a historical fiction novel about a girl born with two hearts who becomes a resurrectionist (she digs up cadavers) in New York. It is such a fun historical fiction novels with plenty of twists and turns that kept me glued to the pages. I have a full review of The Impossible Girl if you’re interested.

Then I finished my reread of Pride & Prejudice. Big surprise, I loved it. This is one of my favorite books, and I’m glad I decided to reread it.

Finally, I read The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, which was so cute. I had a ton of fun reading this, and haven’t been able to get it out of my head. I immediately watched the movie adaptation, which was also great. I’m planning on doing a book/movie hybrid review sometime this week (hopefully tomorrow), so keep an eye out for that.

Now, onto the current reads. The first (and arguably best) book I’m reading at the moment is Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi. I am loving this one so much! I’m listening to the audiobook – which is fantastic – and I can’t get enough. It’s such a good book, and I can’t wait to read more of it.

I also started reading The Dark Forest by Cixin Liu, largely because I knew if I didn’t continue the series now, right after finishing The Three Body Problem, I’d forget way too much about it. I haven’t gotten too far in yet, but I’m definitely curious about the story.

And, finally, I’m reading Impeachment: An American History by Jeffrey Engel, Jon Meacham, Timothy Naftali, and Peter Baker. Mostly because I couldn’t resist an ARC, and I wanted to fit more history in this year anyway.

And that’s it for my current reads! Hopefully this week goes as well as the last and I finish a few books. I’m taking some time off work, and I’m very excited to sit and do nothing but read for a few days. I hope you’re all having a great weekend and getting some good reading time in. As always, I’d love to hear what you’re reading, so let me know in the comments!

  1. I started one of the best science-fiction series I’ve read in a while called “Contact: Book 1 of the Zaftan Troubles” by Hank Quense. I only just realized the third one is out to so now I 2 more great books to catch up on! It is a cool series that jumps ahead in time in book 2 and the world and characters had me so excited to continue reading in book 1 I can’t wait to delve deeper! It feels a little like “Hitchhiker’s guide to the Universe” at times with some of its humor, but it does it’s own thing too!
