Happy Friday, all! I can't believe how quickly August is progressing. This week's wrap-up will cover a few more days than usual because I'm currently participating in the N.E.W.T.s readathon! I want to make sure I'm covering all of my subjects and keeping myself accountable.
I’m very vocal about the fact that The Poppy War was my favourite book of 2018, so I was naturally extremely excited to dive into The Dragon Republic as soon as I could, but I was a little nervous. The second book in a trilogy is a difficult one to pull off, as it deals with the exciting aftermath of the first book and must set up the conclusion of the series. In addition, an author's second book, especially following a splashy debut like The Poppy War, is a notoriously difficult one to write. Despite all of this, I am so pleased to say that The Dragon Republic is a fantastic sequel to an amazing debut novel.
