Here we go! The last cosmere book that I need to read.
I can‘t remember the last time I stayed up so late reading a book. My judgemental Minerva thinks it‘s time I should go to bed. Loving every second of words of radiance. I‘m just devouring it.
I‘m very excited to be diving into this book. I‘ve been reading Rick Riordan‘s Greek/Roman books for almost 10 years now. I adore this newest series with Apollo who is a very unique character. I‘m eager to see where Lester (aka Apollo) and Meg take me this time.
Jazz is a smuggler. On the moon! After a falling out with her father some years before, she‘s trying to make her own way, but is barely scraping by. When the pay day of a life time falls into her lap should she succeed at a dangerous heist, she can‘t refuse, but she gets tangled up in an even bigger mess than she could have anticipated. A huge change in pace from the Martian, but still an amazing book. I‘d love to have more about Jazz.
One of my favourite books! My go to on days when I just want to read something familiar. The near future world that Scalzi created is so realistic that I almost believe that it‘s real. They way he works around this new truth, reading about Chris just seems like Haden‘s is a normal part of life. Love it.
I didn‘t know what to expect, jumping 300 years into the future and leaving the character I had grown to love in the past, but Brandon Sanderson created this amazing new cast of characters that sucked me in and was loyal to the original series. I always looked forward to Wayne‘s perspective because he has a trusty unique outlook on life. Did not disappoint.
My first Brandon Sanderson book. It took me a few tries to get started, but once I got past the first few chapters I was hooked. I needed to know what happened to Siri and Susebron. Vivenna grew on me in ways I never expected. By far one of my favourite books to date. It leaves me wanting more, not because I felt it was lacking, but because it was so intricately written. I could literally read a slice of@life book from this world and be satisfied.
When I say this is one of Sanderson‘s weaker books I want you to fully understand ... it‘s still one of the best books I have ever read. You can see how much his writing has grown from Elantris to his other books and how much it has refined. As per usual, Sanderson leaves me conflicted about my feelings towards the villains in this world and blind sides me with a twist. Reading this book was the roller coaster of emotions I come to expect from him
🤯🤯🤯🤯 Strongly recommend this book for any fantasy fan. A bit slow to start. It took me a few tries to actually get into this book, but once I was I couldn‘t put it down. Typical Sanderson twist out of nowhere, yet when you reflect on it you feel stupid you didn‘t realize sooner! Loved this book. Can‘t wait to read The Words of Radiance now! I recommend reading the other cosmere books first.
There aren‘t words for how amazing this book is. As per usual, Sanderson has created a diverse and complex cast of characters, each one winning over your heart for the different things that make them human. Vin is one of the most complex characters I have ever had the pleasure of reading about. A must read for all fantasy lovers.
The thing about Sanderson‘s books is that I never know what I‘m going to get, but I‘m never disappointed. He decides he‘s going to write a book about people with extraordinary abilities, we assume we‘re getting a wash rinse repeat super hero book. Instead we get a wildly different experience where “sometimes the heroes just need some help”. I spent a lot of the book laughing at the horrible metaphors. It is truly an art!
