POTD: A Book Ate My Weekend

To any fantasy book lovers out there, if you haven’t found Brandon Sanderson, you need to. The Mistborn Trilogy wasn’t my first taste of Sanderson’s world building but it was the most recent one, in addition to being the reason that I got almost nothing done this weekend. What can I say? The book made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. 

I settled in for a couple chapters on Saturday morning while sipping a coffee and the next thing I knew, it was 10pm on Sunday night and I was straining not to hurl The Well of Ascension across the room because there just weren’t enough pages left to tie up all the loose ends. Happily, the story continues in The Hero of Ages. There’s a chance that the phrase “page turner” was a prophetic term created specifically for tales of the Final Empire and the strange and mystical creatures that live there. While Sanderson’s work is far from a relaxing read, it is bound to keep you on your toes as well as awaken dreams of becoming an allomantic metallurgist. 

What’s on your reading list?

  1. What a treat to find a series that takes you away for a Whole Weekend! Wow! Will check Brandon Sanderson out. When I start reading Lois McMaster Bujold Miles Vorkosogian books, time seems to fly, too (she has written piles in that series, but my fav is “Memory.”) HaPpY Reading!
