    SEPTEMBER WRAP-UP

    September was quite the month for me! I wasn't sure if I'll be able to read the books on my TBR, with kids getting back to online classes and our move this month. Things were hectic, and I so close to dropping everything. One of the reasons I wasn't sure I was going to make my TBR target was because all the books I planned for this month happen to be the lengthier, slower-paced, literary, and historical fiction books. It was the kind of books one needs to take the time and savor it rather than reading in one sitting. I am ecstatic and proud to have finished all of…

    BOOK REVIEW : THE IMMORTAL WORDS (THE GRAVE KINGDOM #3) BY JEFF WHEELER

    JUNE WRAP-UP

    June was a productive month. I was able to read 10 books, and I enjoyed most of them. I have a few favorites as well.

    BOOK REVIEW : THE BURIED WORLD (THE GRAVE KINGDOM #2) BY JEFF WHEELER

    The Buried World is the second book in The Grave Kingdom series. The series is Chinese inspired with a fantastical world and a great cast of characters carrying the story forward. I read The Killing Fog, the first book in this series last year, and thoroughly enjoyed it. This series picks up from where the story left off in the first book. We follow Bingmei as she and her ensign is fleeing from Echion and his army of mercenaries. Kingdoms have fallen; Echion is raging war against anyone who dares to defy him. He is forcing Iron Rules on his subjects. Things are rapidly changing in the entire world. Echion…
