It’s the weekend again! I haven’t done a weekend reads post in a while, and I’m excited to bring them back.
I’m going to be listening to the last couple hours of The Burning God by R. F. Kuang, the third book in the Poppy War trilogy. I’m enjoying it so far, but Kuang seems to like to torture her characters so listening to these books is a careful balance of trying to not become too attached to any characters. I’ll tell you now – if anything (permanent) happens to Kitay, I’m rioting!
I’ve also been reading The Black Sun by Rebecca Roanhorse. I’m not all that far in, but the worldbuilding I’ve seen so far has been very interesting. I’ve heard it ends in a pretty gnarly cliffhanger, but it’s on the shortlist for the Hugo Awards so I gotta do it. I’m sure it will all be fine and I won’t be angry about it at all 😇
I also want to work on reading the comics up for the Hugo, so I’m going to read the first 2 volumes of DIE by Kieron Gillen and Stephanie Hans and possibly the first 2 volumes of Invisible Kingdom by G. Willow Wilson and Christian Ward.
Is anyone else reading for the Hugos? Or are you all waiting until the voter packets are sent out?
I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend and reading some amazing books!!
