The Burning God by R.F. Kuang | 2021 Reads



The Burning God is the last book in the trilogy so not going to talk much about plot and there won't be any spoilers. I just want to give my general thoughts.

I think this was a fitting conclusion. Heartbreaking but fitting... and dare I say, unavoidable. It is not an easy journey to go through. There is not a moment to breathe. It is all relentless destruction with this one. And page by page, Rin unravels. The trauma, devastation and betrayal she has suffered throughout is impossible to escape.

One complain I have is that it felt like Kuang sacrificed character-driven moments (which were more present in the previous two books) for the sake of the plot. All in all though, an impressive trilogy but not for the faint-hearted.

Vintage Classics: Brontë Series

Maybe you don’t know this about me but I collect different edition of Jane Eyre and when I learnt that Vintage was releasing the new Brontë series I just couldn’t say no. 

The 80th Anniversary Edition of Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

I received this beautiful edition in the mail yesterday and I just couldn't not share it here. I read Rebecca last year and despite not writing a full review of it here on the blog, it became one of my all time favourites. Still today there are moments when I find myself thinking about the story and the characters. Du Maurier brings to life and incredible story and memorable characters and it's one of those books I'll recommend to anyone.

Reading Diary | February Books | 2018

Feb, 1st - 15:15. Finished the second book in the first volume of the Riyria Revelations and I was pleasantly surprised. I still think the world building is the weakest thing about the story because it's not greatly developed but the story is well-written and entertaining. I'm planning on continuing reading the series because now I'm intrigued enough to want to know how everything will unfold. Feb, 7th - 10:33.  I'm finally prepared to go and see the movie Call Me By Your Name because I just finished reading the novel. I enjoyed it quite a bit. It is a celebration of love and an exploration of sex and identity. It's quite explicit though so if you feel uncomfortable with that keep it in mind if you're planning on reading it. My full review of the book is HERE (I also talk a little bit about the movie).
