Beautiful day for some audio walking and outdoor reading! Yay fall!
Beautiful day for some audio walking and outdoor reading! Yay fall!
This book was very good and captivating! My only complaint was that so much time was spent leading up to the end...which ended rather abruptly and shortly! A little bit disappointing there.
Book 3 of Robert Jordan‘s The Wheel of Time epic fantasy saga. I‘m kind of astonished that I‘m still having a blast re-reading this series!
And finally, I‘m hoping to finish the tagged book today, as long as this distraction on four legs lets me! The hubby is away for the night so it‘s just her and me. Let‘s see how much reading and how much playing & feeding gets done. #AwesomeApril #readathon
55 hours and 2K+ pages later, I'm now done with the first three books of the Wheel of Time series. I liked this book a lot more than the second one, maybe because it had less Rand and more Moraine. On to book 4!
I don‘t know how I waited so long to read this series. What was I thinking?! It‘s so so so good! This one had so many new and interesting elements, and excellent character development! Can‘t wait to read the next one! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
It‘s so cold here today, so I‘m huddled up in multiple blankets, reading and drinking hot cocoa. Not a bad Saturday after all. 🥰 #MugsOfLitsy
I finished book 3 just as the show started. I'll be trying to get through a few more in 2022.
Best book of the series so far! Not a lot of Rand in it, but I was okay with it because he was also starting to annoy me. Loved that the women got some more “screen time.” My main favorite character is Verin (obviously), but I still love Perrin. I can‘t get over how much some people keep hating/distrusting others that have done nothing but help them (lookin at you, Nynaeve RE: Moiraine). Hopefully people continue to get smarter! 9.5/10

Book 3 complete! Enjoying the series so far, the plot is pulling me along. Starting to have some issues with the characters, but I am liking the adventures each team is going on. Will take a break before reading book 4.
I voted this morning, then took a loooooong walk with the last chunk of THE DRAGON REBORN. Revisiting the series has churned up so many memories of when I was a young WoT fan. Like, I keep thinking about how EVERY TIME Teenage Me met another fan, they were all, “Who‘s your fave? It‘s Perrin, right? Perrin‘s the best!” And I‘d feel bad, because I found Perrin kinda boring but I didn‘t want to SAY that to someone who loved him. So. 🤷♀️
I forgot to share all the vegetables I picked & dealt with while I listened to my audiobook yesterday afternoon! I‘ll be eating chard all through the winter, there‘s cherry tomato sauce on the horizon, and I‘ve got enough cucumbers to do pickles once I get more vinegar & dill. Hurray!
If y‘all have any other tips for freezable stuff I can make with cherry tomatoes, especially meals, let me know. They just keep on coming. #audiocooking
Bk3 of September,Bk12 of #LittensDressedInBlood & Bk1 of #AnyWayYouReadathon is done! I‘m counting this as Bk1 coz even though I started it yesterday, I read at least 70% of it today. The third WOT book, it shows all the Emonds Fielders coming to terms with who they are. My goals for this #readathon is:
📚Read 3 books
👽Read a #SciFiSeptember book
What are your weekend plans?
Finally received the wool I ordered weeks ago, bloody Auspost had an embargo on packages for a couple of days to help deal with the backlog they have(lockdown means online shopping for everything the last two months!)so I‘m #audioknitting to the 3rd in the WOT series. Hopefully I can finish this scarf for my son while it‘s still cold enough to wear it.
Haven't posted in a while, as I've been on a #julyjourneys of my own to Aruba (pics hopefully forthcoming), but it did give me a chance to finish book 3 of the WoT. A familiar pattern is emerging in how these books are structured- split the group into three parts, travel cross country, have adventures, and then reconvene for the climactic scene. The formula works, though. A minor quibble that each book seems to introduce a new enchanted object 👇
This third book of The Wheel of Time focuses more on the supporting characters. We meet some new characters as the complexity of storyline increases. The pacing in this one was just right for the character development Jordan seemed to be striving for in this one. Some of the questions from the first two books remain unanswered, and more are raised as the scope of the plot expands. Looking forward to book #4!
I've been #audiostitching Pretty Little Dublin while listening to The Dragon Reborn.
This is my second time with book three. I'm rereading (listening this time around) them to refresh my memory so I can finally finish the series. I left off in the middle of book 6 several years ago. This one was probably my favorite so far. I am not fond of Rand, and I enjoyed that this one followed the other characters more.
This will always be one of my favorites because Matt really starts to develop in it.
Okay, this is my favorite one so far out of the 3 I have read. SO MUCH PERRIN!! I loved that we got to deal with his struggle more. The character development of Perrin and Mat was amazing. I am constantly sitting here going “I can‘t trust you new character” and I love that feeling. There is so much but it‘s all handled in such a careful manner that it‘s easy to follow along. And the end, ugh yes I need to read book four now. Ahh I love this .
SSSOOOOOO MUCH PERRIN!!!! YESSSSSSS!
Erhnmm excuse my outburst. I just started book 3 and 4 chapters in and the focus is still on my favorite character and I AM HERE FOR THIS! My audiobook is due back in 6 days (I got sidetracked playing Monster Hunter) but now knowing how much focus is on Perrin this go around I Have no worries about not finishing the audiobook in time haha.
While not as action-packed as the Great Hunt, this book still has a lot of epic-ness.
Rand is side-lined in this book, for good reason. In this book, we got a lot more Perrin and a LOT more Mat. This is basically Mat‘s book because of how much he steals the show.
There are some genuinely kickass plot lines and I feel like once the characters just let loose, it‘s going to become even more of a wild ride. Can‘t wait to start the next one!
I enjoyed this. I‘m enjoying seeing the variety of plots and POVs.
No spoilers or anything but does Rand ever become likable again? He‘s a bit of a (huge) jerk right now which is sorta understandable but I really miss his sweet personality.
Hard for me to decide between pick and so-so. I know tons of people love this series, and it‘s okay for me, I‘m not sorry I‘m reading it, but I‘m not loving it. It just doesn‘t grab me the way many other fantasy series do. So many characters, and Jordan is not portraying them in a way that makes me really care. I predicted the overall plot of this one and based on the first 3, I‘m pretty sure that I know what‘s coming in the next ones. 3.5⭐️ #2019
While this one was my least favorite of the first three, I still very much enjoyed it. I enjoyed all of the character development. This is the first time I‘ve felt like I know anything about Mat. I‘m really getting attached to the girl characters too. I wish I hadn‘t been so tired when I finished this one but I couldn‘t stop reading. Ready for book four! #BuddyReadWoT
“The inn smelled of ale and wine, cheese and weariness...” (p. 99)
Well...damn.... I feel a little called out right now. I wonder how often people think I smell of cheese and weariness.
Me and Captain Janeway are going to continue our adventure. #BuddyReadWOT
I‘ve had this silly bookmark since....gosh...middle school? I bought it at one of those school book fairs. I‘ve lost it easily a dozen times but it always manages to find its way home. ❤️
Bk3 of my #WheelOfTimeReread2019 is finished. I‘m planning on #audiobooking it this time around, not just because of my eyes & constant headaches, but also because my almost 30yr old copies are falling apart from being reread so many times! I need to buy new paperbacks & retire my originals before they‘re unrepairable. Though a few are already held together with duct tape. I‘m very much enjoying these audiobooks, the narrators are excellent.5⭐️
