Mistborn: The Final Empire | Brandon Sanderson

This was the first Sanderson book I have read. I liked the world and the magic, but I felt nothing for the characters. That might just be me.

This was an amazing British police procedural. I had to download the next one right away. I thought it was one person and it was not.

This was a #bookclub pick. If not for that I don‘t think I would have finished this book. Romance is not my cup of tea, sex on the subway!?!(thank goodness for fast forwarding) Have you ever seen how dirty those are? I listened to this while I reorganized the library.

Soubhiville Um, ew. I‘m with you there- no way on the subway. I do want to read this though. 3mo
TheAromaofBooks A while back I read a book and the romantic couple had to take shelter from the weather in a cottage that “hadn't been used in years“ and then shagged on the blankets - I could NOT get past how gross that sounded!! 😳 3mo
tracey38 Yeah, that is really gross this is on my tbr though. 3mo

I found this on @vivastory page. I hade never heard of this graphic novel, but it was an eye opener on cults. I did not know how much of some cults influences we are still dealing with. FYI. I have always hated the line “ today is the first day of the rest of your life”.

I did not realize that this was part of a series. I had never read any of the Inspector Gamache books before. That is why the so-so.

Tbh I wish I had read this before reading The Five. This book was well written and well researched. Parts of it made me very angry it was not the book. It was the Attitudes of the the people. How racist, classists and just uggg.
