I enjoyed reading this book. It's a lovely, compelling fantasy. Honestly, the only reason I gave it a so-so rating is because I couldn't get into the romance that developes, which pulled me out of the story a little bit. #fantasy #highfantasy #magic

It's winter-y out there today so I'm stretched on my comfy spot and trying to get one more book in before it's officially December.

Fairly well developed plot, original and interesting world building, and intriguing characters.

Unfortunately the writing was a tad dry and the book lacked atmosphere, so the world building wasn‘t as vivid and the characters fell a tad flat and distant, despite the creativity that went into crafting each one of them and how they fit within the world and with each other.

Still an interesting storyline and I‘m hopeful for the next book.

3.5 / 5 ⭐ I enjoyed this book although I was more interested in some characters' stories than others. Chapters following characters I was less invested in dragged for me. But I really enjoyed the way it came together in the end and am lookjng forward to the next book. Also got slight 'Six of Crows' vibes initially, which helped draw me in because I love that series.

The Complete Wheel of Time | Robert Jordan, Brandon Sanderson

I finally (!!!) finished my mammoth reading project, The Wheel of Time. Why mammoth project? I first started reading the books ~15 years ago, stopped after book 6, picked up the next book years later, stopped another 6 books later. Was frustrated because I lost the threads of a lot of subplots. Found the ebook collection and started reading in April 2018. Finished yesterday 😁 (FYI I also read around 40 other books during that time)

sprainedbrain What an accomplishment! My uncle keeps telling me I would love these books, but so far I‘ve been too intimidated. 😬 2w
Sisasuku @sprainedbrain They are amazing in the end. But I found the whole middle part of the series (books 5 to 10 or so) very hard to read because nothing really happens. Still, the world and the characters and the magic system is so vast, and the last 3 books I literally read in 2 days each. 2w
Cheshirecat913 That is definitely an undertaking! Well done. I stopped at book 6 too, like 16 years ago. Ahhh, I cannot believe it was that long ago. Maybe one day I will come back. 2w

Bring on the spider priests! I‘ve reached the fourth book in the series, and goodness, I am much determined and awaiting their downfall. A plot brewing for the final novel. Great read!

Hit a bit of a slump. Not because the book is bad...November was/is just a slow reading month. Been playing a lot of vids & watching lots of anime.

If anything it's this book that is bringing me back to the pages. I'm really enjoying it and need to find out what's going on! 👍
