Default The Brandon Sanderson book club

Yes, my favourite author of ALL TIME. He has written so many amazing books like STORMLIGHT ARCHIVE, the MISTBORN SERIES, Warbreaker, Elantris, Steelheart trilogy and Mitosis, Legion, Emperor's Soul, Alcatraz, and way way way more. He is my favourite adult fantasy, high fantasy, epic fantasy author of all time and I am currently reading Elantris, which is heavy on power, duty, roles and religion, very heavy on the religion.

I recently read Rithmatist which was phenomenal. I read that extremely quickly. I am proud to say that I read Words of Radiance in around 4 days, which is 1080 pages long. Way of Kings took me a while, but that was just because I was busy, and the Mistborn trilogy! Oh my god, it was fucking awesome. You guys have to read it, it was so well written and beautiful and the magic, oh my god!

And I loved, loved, loved Alloy of Law, the start of a new Mistborn adventure! It was full of action and Wayne, who is extremely funny and witty.

Hoid, too. You guys know HOID? He comes up in every single one of ships adult fantasy books, such as the STORMLIGHT Archive, Mistborn trilogy, WARBREAKER, Elantris. I don't know when he comes up in Elantris, but I hope it's soon! He is really cool!

AND STORMLIGHT 3 IS COMING OUT SOON I AM GETTING SO SO SO SO EXCITED FORI T. I VE EBEN GOING INSANE WAITING MY GOD SDHFMJKSFHJSFJKHSDHJKFSDKJHDS.

Um so yeah. I like Brandon Sanderson. I like his books.

He is a god.

*coughs in the back because still hasn't finished WOT and is only making baby steps through it*

I actually told myself this past summer that I would read the entire book before the summer was over, and then I didn't, and then I told my sister that I would read the entire thing before the end of September and eh...eh...I didn't. I've only made a dent into the amount of pages xD

I know! But I'm not an extremely fast reader, and I have a small attention span (except when I'm reading Sarah J Maas)....

I think the most I have read in one sitting is about 600 pages or so because I was just really in the mood to read WoR.

The most I've ever read in one sitting was probably Heir of Fire, because I read about the last 200 or so pages in one sitting of it. Maybe Queen of Shadows will beat that...who knows?

(*hurtles into thread*)

so I'm almost done WoR and dYING

*spoilers all through this*

I love Kaladin and shall marry him however I will also marry Adolin bc I am Shallan incarnate (however slightly less awesome and not an effing Shardbearer where the hell did that come from)

and literally when Kaladin saved Adolin from the four Shardbearers in the duel aND THEN refused Shards again oh my god I hate him yet adore him

and Shallan x Adolin x Kaladin is pretty legit because their conversations together are awesome especially Kaladin and Adolin once they start to like each other

just yeah Kaladin x Adolin is pretty much all I have to say
