The Way of Kings
The Way of Kings | Brandon Sanderson
In The Way of Kings, #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson introduces readers to the fascinating world of Roshar, a world of stone and storms.It has been centuries since the fall of the Knights Radiant, but their mystical swords and armor remain, transforming ordinary men into near-invincible warriors. Men trade kingdoms for them. Wars are fought for them and won by them.One such war rages on the Shattered Plains where Kaladin, son of a surgeon, has been reduced to slavery, and Dalinar, commander of the armies, is plagued by dreams of ancient times, doubting his own sanity.Across the ocean, Shallan, a nave but brave and brilliant young woman, plans a daring theft to save her impoverished noble house from ruin.The result of over ten years of planning, writing, and world-building, The Way of Kings is Book 1 of The Stormlight Archive, an epic fantasy masterpiece in the making.

🎧📚 4 main characters that have their own chapters.

Kaladin. Good guy wrongly branded a slave. He becomes bridge 4‘s leader. He has Syl to help him. (Read & find out)

Shallan - the most room to grow, starts out a thief, her desires change.

Dalinar! My favorite character.

Szeth, king killer. Where will the truthless lead us?

10-ish strong supporting characters.

It‘s epic. It might take you awhile to get into it but it‘s worth it!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

June 2021 Wrap Up is here! I read 25 books in the month of June with only one DNF. My favorite books of the month were: The Way of Kings, Kisses and Croissants, The First Sister, The Star Crossed Sister of Tuscany, For the Wolf, and The Prison Healer. I read 9,893 pages. What was your favorite books of June and how many books did you read?

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I absolutely adored this beast of a book. I loved the multi point of views. Kaladin is my favorite character and my heart broke for him multiple times. The world building and the characters were great. This is a masterpiece and now one of my favorite fantasy series ever.
#bookstagram #bibliophile #litsy #littens

Angitron I started dipping my toes into this, but my library loan ran out before I barely began. I‘m a bit hesitant to continue because A) I‘m not a huge high fantasy fan, and B) It‘s one big honking book, but it gets such great reviews, I may go back to it. Your review is pushing me towards continuing! 7mo
The_Heeler_Booklife @Angitron that‘s a bummer that it ran out. Yeah, these books are really chunky. I definitely recommend it. It‘s not super duper fantasy in this book. You do have like a spirit that talks to Kaladin and he can do things. Then, the soulcasting is another thing. Then, the visions. That‘s really all. I‘m a huge fan of fantasy though. Definitely give it a try and let me know what you think. 😊 7mo

I could not stop listening to this book, it was so good. I finished it in 2 days, I lived with my headphones in that entire time. I tried this book years ago and just wasn‘t that into it then, I‘m glad I gave it another go. The world is so big and fascinating and the characters are interesting. Kalidan was by far my favorite with Dalinar close behind. I‘m getting some other reading done before I jump into book 2 but it‘s definitely happening.

The Stormlight Archives has been on my radar for years. At 1,000 pgs I hoped the 1st book was worth it. It takes a bit to get into the rhythm of the novel. The story rotates between POVs & there's a lot of battle scenes, which were tiresome, but I loved the character development. As it went on I began to see the connections & the main characters became interesting. Halfway through I wasn‘t sure I loved it, but by the end I couldn't put it down.

Hello fellow Litizens. Miss me?

It has been over two years since my last post, and a lot has changed in my life, from ending a long relationship and moving, to finding my feet again, as well as finding love.

There was a long period where I'm sad to say I was barely even reading.

However, those days are gone, and now I tend to always have one digital book and one hard copy I'm working on.

I decided to reread the Stormlight series leading up to Rhythm of War. I should have started back in August like my brother did. Oh well. I am glad that I am rereading because there were details that I have forgotten over the years. I went between a hard copy of the book and the audiobook. I love this series and it is joyful to read it again!

Thank you for this #LitFortuneCookie @KVanRead and thank you for the tag @IndoorDame 😌

In the tagged book, the main characters aren‘t very enthusiastic at first. One is planning a heist, one is consumed by thoughts of revenge, and one seeks personal glory. But as they discover more about themselves and what is truly important, they stop focusing on things like money and influence, and become more enthusiastic about helping the world around them!

Oh my gosh I did it! It took 3 weeks but I made it through this 1001 page behemoth! There are lots of gorgeous drawings in it.

Sanderson is an expert worldbuilder and this fantasy #chunkster is strong in that way. There are 4 main POV, 2 of them I really loved.

There is a lot of war in here though, a bit too much for me and some of that dragged. So although I did enjoy this, I‘m not likely to continue the series. 4⭐️

This was my #Bookspin.

AlaMich I get really bored during battle scenes. They all read the same to me, and I just want to find out what happens afterward. Swords, horses, blood...wash, rinse, repeat. (edited) 1y

This may be all I can get through this month, and I‘m not entirely sure I can finish them both. But I‘m going to try!

Getting back to this one. I set it down because I didn‘t finish it in time to continue with my reading group. I was so sad I didn‘t even want to look at it.
Anyway, it‘s good and I just can‘t quit. Great author. great story build. 💗 here we go.
