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.

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!

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

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. 🤷‍♀️

xicanti This is why I don‘t have the mental energy to participate in any sort of fandom. I don‘t want to shit on anyone‘s faves and/or fight it out. I just want us all to love what we love without conflict. 1y
xicanti Wow. That was a downer. I also keep thinking about how the show PROBABLY means I‘ll get to buy a Nynaeve Funko Pop!. I‘m excited about this. Even though Mat and Egwene are my faves, I‘ve always been weirdly attached to Nynaeve. My last reread was kinda tough for me because I‘d become older than her. 🤯 1y
HeyT I only read it for the first time last year but Nynaeve was my favorite so I am also hoping that if they make funko pops I can get one of her. 1y
xicanti @HeyT you just know Funko Nynaeve‘s gonna be tugging on her braid. 1y

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

Tamra If you are into canning, I made pickled cherry tomatoes out of the All New Ball Canning Book and they are delicious! (I remove the skins as I eat them and let them sit a couple of months to marinate.) 1y
Tamra Could roast them with garlic and freeze for a delicious easy sauce or condiment. 😋 1y
xicanti @Tamra canning‘s always intimidated me because of all the boiling it involves, but I might have to give it a try this year. 1y

Tamra @xicanti you could make them as refrigerator pickles too. I have switched to a steam canner instead of water bath. Uses a fraction of the water - very easy. You can Google them. Once you get the canning bug, it‘s fun! (edited) 1y
mandarchy I use small canning jars and freeze food. The quarter cup jars are great for single ingredients, like the chard. If you only season it with salt and pepper, you can add it to anything you are making. I add it to soup or stirfry, fry it up with an egg. I also use the little jars to store cooked ground beef and leftover Costco rotisserie chicken in the freezer. It's how I can make a casserole for one. 1y
xicanti @Tamra fridge pickled tomatoes definitely sound doable! That‘s how I make pickled cucumbers and banana peppers. 1y
xicanti @mandarchy good ideas! Thanks! 1y
SamAnne I like pickling cherry tomatoes…it can be a nice side dish with meals. 1y

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 👇

The_Penniless_Author ...or bit of prophecy that was never mentioned before, but at least they fit within the existing story for the most part. 1y

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.

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!

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.

Geeklet Whoops. I marked the wrong book. I‘m on The Shadow Rising. Still, same question though. 3y
xicanti I got SO tired of Rand, to the point where I totally disengaged from him for most of the series, but I did find he became worth investing in again over the last three or four books. Different from how he was in the beginning, but worth it. 3y
Geeklet @xicanti Awesome! Thanks. As long as he‘s not the giant jerk face all throughout the story. I‘m really over his attitude. 3y
DaveGreen7777 If it‘s any consolation, while Rand can still be a bit of a pill at times over the next few books, I found him much more likable in “The Shadow Reborn”. In fact, the next book has my favorite Rand moment in the series so far! 😀 3y

Mehso-so

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

Graywacke It‘s not for everyone. (He‘ll go off the beaten track in the upcoming books, but it‘s only fun if, well, it‘s fun...) 3y
cherinium I have yet to venture into this series. So many love it, yet I'm afraid I won't. I'm turned off by the covers big time. To be fair, I think most fantasy novels have cheesy covers, and I end up loving them when I finally decide to read one. 3y
rretzler @Graywacke I want so much to like it, but Jordan is no Tolkien, or Hobb, or Martin, or Bujold. He doesn‘t put his characters through the wringer. Even the final battles in the three books that I‘ve read seem tame. Rand never seems in any real danger. ☹️ I want to be afraid that these characters won‘t make it to the end of the book - and I just don‘t see that happening, unfortunately🤣🤣🤣 (edited) 3y
rretzler @cherinium I really want to like the series, but I guess I‘ve been spoiled by authors who really put their characters in the worst possible situation and just when you think they‘re safe, they‘re in a much worse situation. Somehow after a lot of agony, they may (or in some cases may not) end up surviving. Lois McMaster Bujold and Robin Hobb are fantastic at that, as is of course George RR Martin! 3y

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

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⭐️
