Oooh lucky you! ❤ Sanderson is my fave author, and the Mistborn trilogy is one of my fave fantasy books. I hope you enjoy reading it! Let me know how you find it :la: good luck with juggling work and reading too.

   

Hiya, I read all three books and I wish I can say that the length is justified but it's not. Even for Murakami's standard, this is excruciatingly slow-moving and filled with unnecessary information that adds nothing to the narrative. Stripped away of the metaphors and his signature style, I think it can all be compressed to a single book. Anyway, I still finished it because I needed the closure, lol.


Is it the one written by Maggie Stiefvater? Then yes, I read it. :happy: it was all right, her writing is flowery and the book is character-driven rather than plot-oriented. Do you like it?

 

 

lol he's becoming one of my faves too at this point so I'm looking forward to reading them.

 

I flopped hard at last years Goodread's challenge so I set my goal at a measly 30, let's see how I do this year.  The joys of being older and having responsibilities (that I still shirk).

I pledged 50 books for this year's Goodreads challenge. :happy: Currently, I'm juggling three books:

Sorcerer to the Crown - Zen Cho
A Little Life - Hanya Yanagihara
The Thousandth Floor - Katherine McGee

'A Little Life' is so heartbreakingly good ngl
