Hello! I hope you’ve all had lovely weekends. My weekend was pretty good. I went to a pumpkin patch with some friends this afternoon, and it ended up raining really hard, but it was so much fun! I only have a four day week at school because it’s a grading day, which is really nice, so I’m at least looking forwards to that!
Anyways, I’m really excited for today’s review: it’s for one of my favorite books, and one of my most anticipated releases of this year: Our Violent Ends, by Chloe Gong, the finale to the These Violent Delights duology!
These Violent Delights is a historical fantasy set in 1920’s Shanghai, about the heirs to two gangs, the Scarlets and the White Flowers, who despite a blood feud going back must work together to stop a dangerous monster tearing through the city, infecting people and causing them to rip out their very own throats.

All in all, The Silvered Serpents, by Roshani Chokshi is a masterpiece.

Hey there! I got a lot of schoolwork done today, which was good, so I’ve had time to write this. It’s been over two months though, since sheltering in place began which seems really crazy. One of my friends birthdays was yesterday, though, and we did a surprise drive by birthday parade. It was really fun, and I did get to chat with some of my friends, even though it was from far apart. Anyways, I finished reading this book about a day ago, so here is my review of Mark of the Thief, by Jacqueline Woodson.
