Left this morning with my boyfriend to visit his family in NJ for a few days. I already miss my kitties!😔 However, it's a 9 hour drive so I'm happy to have such great reading material with me! 😁📚💕 #wotreread
I am really just so glad I started rereading the Wheel of Time series again! Seeing the gang start out on their journey feels like meeting up with old friends! I missed these characters so much! 😍💕📚 #wotreread #wot #catsoflitsy #littenkitten #roxas

I finally started my journey on the Wheel of Time, and I don‘t regret it at all. This book was captivating, with extremely well-drawn characters and an intense plot that doesn‘t let up until the final pages of the novel.
Part of what made me fall in love was how intricate and creative Jordan‘s world building is. The descriptions pulled me into the story and added a richness that I was able to envision so easily.
I have put off reading this for many years because I didn‘t want to commit to a 19 book series or whatever, but now that I‘ve read it, I really enjoyed it! The characters are vivid, the quest is exciting, and the world felt rich. Looking forward to book 2.
I have read the whole series over the years. Some of the best writing I‘ve read in a while. Even when he passed away, Sanderson did well maintaining the voice and pace of the books.
It‘s been a few years since I read this, and it‘s the first time I‘ve done it as an audiobook. I think I enjoy physically reading it better, but I don‘t have time to do that with my unending TBR pile.
Back on my bullshit. It‘s been a few years so I‘m excited so slowly make my way through a favourite series.
This was a great start. 😊
I couldn‘t put The Wheel of Time down! I‘m attached to the three protagonists, as well as two major characters who stop at nothing to protect them, I‘m drawn to the villain and the catastrophic potential that lies in the sequels ahead. Plus, the writing style is just really good! Jordan has such a skilled and natural way of describing the intricacies of towns while also keeping me on the edge of my seat during so many battles the heroes face.
Thank you for this campy #ManicMonday @JoScho 😁
📖 - The Wheel of Time series... those Emond‘s Field villagers spent a lot of time in various campgrounds! ⛺️
🎥 - “Meatballs”. One of the first Bill Murray movies I ever saw, even before “Ghostbusters”! 👻
🎶 - “Nature Trail to Hell (in 3-D)” by Weird Al Yankovic, where he mocks Friday the 13th! “You‘ll never see hideous effects like these again till we bring you Nature Trail to Hell Part 2!” 😂
#AugustABC #Day1 #AlliesAlways No matter how different their lives become, how far apart they are or how much they‘ve changed, Rand, Mat & Perrin always know they can count on each other. Allies to the last, even though they have their disagreements, when the Last Battle comes, all three are right by each other‘s side.
Starting volume three. This series has me hooked! #comic
My favorite literary villain is...Lanfear from Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series. Why? A couple reasons! First of all, she's batshit crazy! All the things she does are laced with that unique craziness of hers. 😈 And also, I feel like she's a bit sympathetic of a character. You know everything she does originates back to one point-her love for the dragon reborn. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity Dave! 💕
1. Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan. It really got me into reading and kept me going through tough youth and young adulthood.
2. Mustard, ketchup, vinegar -- just no 🤢🤮
3. Heights 🎢 and spiders 🕷️, though to a lesser degree
4. 5 brothers and 3 sisters
5. 👋🏼 Hello!
When you‘re so busy that you run yourself into the ground 😔 called in sick today because I just can‘t kick this head cold! Looking forward to relaxing with lots of tea and catching up with #BuddyReadWOT - where is everyone at?! @BigHappiness @Geeklet @DannyHattan
Casting rumors were true! Rosamund Pike has been officially cast for the character of Moiraine for the Wheel of Time tv series. It was confirmed by the writers and lead people on Twitter earlier. If you search for #WOTWednesday, you can find the original tweet. I‘m hyped. I don‘t know this lady‘s work but it seems she has the chops. She has the icy stare down pat.

How I feel right now after having to learn 30 tunes for a gig tomorrow, I‘ve had almost no time to read anything but charts. Can‘t wait for Monday (see: #DayOfReading I mean resting) 🤪 #jazzyjune #buddyreadWoT #WoTseries #epic #longreads #jazzandbooks #saturday #summerreads #girlswhoread #teammat #blameitonlitsy
I love big, epic reads, so this was enjoyable for me! However, I think I would have rated it higher if I would have first read it years ago. I‘ve read so much good fantasy lately that has much more unique world building and more dimensional character development. It‘s such a slow burn, that I‘m guessing I‘ll get more of that in subsequent books. I appreciated the detail and history and look forward to learning more.
I‘ll be done tomorrow without a doubt 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 How‘s everyone else getting on? Reading anything else at the same time?
Going on a little trip tomorrow and I didn‘t want to take two huge fantasy tomes so I finished this one tonight. For my first real trip into a fantasy series, I really enjoyed this book. The world building is phenomenal and I generally like the characters. I can‘t wait to start The Great Hunt! #BuddyReadWOT

So I shouldn‘t be listening to this on #audible as I‘m supposed to be reading more, but I‘m off to the gym and can‘t put tho book down so this is my compromise 🤗😂😂😂 #BuddyReadWOT #fantasy #EpicFantasy #BFC #bookfitnesschallange
So for some reason, this time around, I picture Emond‘s Field to look like Sonoma Plaza, in Sonoma, CA. Haven‘t been there in a few years, and I used to picture Rand‘s farm and the West Wood less vividly than I do now. Speaking of places with a view to sit and drink Tam‘s Apple brandy, are YOU — A) Brandy B) Cider or C) Ale? I‘m sour ale/whiskey. #WoT #buddyreadWoT #beersandbooks #sonomawood @DannyHattan @Ashley_Nicoletto @wanderinglynn
So who knew there was a graphic novel series of #TheWheelOfTime and didn‘t tell me??? 🧐😑😑 This has been a favourite of mine for the past 10 years and I honestly didn‘t know. On the plus side I‘m excited to give it a go, I‘ve never really read a graphic novel.
Wild Saturday night.
Bailey is keeping watch. ❤️
Sometimes it‘s just an iPad in bed with giant font kinda morning.
I had a very busy and lovely day in London involving cream tea, the fantastic V&A museum, and lots of pints! Although, now I am super happy to be home and in bed and am super excited to FINALLY start The Wheel of Time! Join us for the #BuddyReadWOT !
“We enter here.” I read all the way to Chapter 22 yesterday and decided to slow the pace and go through my reading notes and develop this deeper feeling I have with the storylines, knowing where they will go, and coming from a reader position now a decade later.
