Brandon Sanderson creates an amazing universe awesome character development and creative magic system. I had a hard time putting this one down.
Great ending to the trilogy!
Second book in the Reckoners saga, The reckoners leave a Newcago to fight a high epic in Babylon Reborn formerly Manhattan, but element of surprise is no longer on their side. Gotta say that I‘ve become a huge fan of Brandon Sanderson.
Great sci-fi plot that starts to drag a little at the end. Unfortunately I figured out what was happening really early so maybe that‘s why I felt like the ending was stretched longer than it should have been. But what do I know I‘m no novelist 😂 the picture is of @Reviewsbylola taking a picture of this book for her post.
Final book in the trilogy and I‘m so sad that it‘s over. Such a great world, story, and characters that I would put right up there with the song of fire and ice series. I want to give my brother Alex a big thank you for suggesting these books and I will be reading a lot more Brandon Sanderson books in the near future. (My daughter really wanted to model the book bedhead and all)
Second book in a trilogy that I am reading straight through. The world and main story are amazing with lots of action and drama. Also loads of parliamentary procedure! Ok I honestly could have done without all the political strategy stuff, a lot was said when a little would have made due. The political stuff really slowed the momentum for me. All that being said I still really enjoyed it and will be starting book three tomorrow.
With @Reviewsbylola off to England, I‘m left home with the little ones. I‘ve vowed to dedicate my free time this upcoming week to reading. Gotta say... when my brother told me about this book I was pretty so so about it, but once I got a few pages in I was hooked. I‘m not a fan of reading trilogy‘s straight through but I can‘t help it. I‘ve got to know what happens next.
I read this for the first time about 10 years ago and I was blown away. Reading it now just reminds me to be grateful for what I have and to cherish those close to me. It is a sobering look at addiction and the mind of a man who is trapped in a hell of his own creation, and proof that you can make it out.
If you‘re a fan “A Song of Ice and Fire” more often referred to as Game of Thrones you should love this. Book one is The history of the Targaryen kings of Westeros from Aegon the Conqueror through the Regency of Aegon III. Although this is written closer to a history book than a true novel it paints such a vivid picture of the Seven Kingdoms and how they came to be united as one. Great holdover while waiting for season 8.
After a year long hiatus, I‘ve finally read a whole book! This is a graphic novel of course but it brought me back into the fold. (My wife‘s dog agrees) This was a 2017 Christmas gift from my brother. Once I started reading I couldn‘t put it down, I read it all in one sitting. Great sci/fi story with amazing character design. (The Stalk) this is a series that I will definitely follow up on.
Sorry for the back to back non-book related posts, but on the way home they decided to hold hands so they wouldn‘t get lost. Had to share #sorrynotsorry.
I‘m a huge fan of zombie/survival/cursed earth fiction so I obviously was a huge fan of the TV show. I wasn‘t a big reader at the time so I was familiar with the tv show before I read these books, but I gotta say these bad boys didn‘t disappoint! The story follows the same plot points but there so much more in the book (isn‘t there always?) if you‘re a fan of the show you will definitely be a fan of the book!
I saw the trailer for the movie based on this book series, and I thought “this looks pretty good”. I had already read the first book in this trilogy (wasn‘t a big fan) so I figured I could power through the next 2 books before the movie came out, but I couldn‘t have been more wrong! I thought the first one was a tough read but this one takes the cake. Super boring characters that are unlikeable and forgettable. (Continued in comments)
@Reviewsbylola starting them young. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Pop-up. I always enjoy watching my wife share her love of reading with our girls. Sadly I have yet to crack a book this year.
Earnest Cline said it best “The Avengers meets The Walking Dead”. Everything I look for in a book, Post apocalyptic earth? Check! Super hero‘s? Check! Zombies? Check! If any of these things are on your reading checklist I seriously recommend digging into this series. This is the 5th book in the EX-heros series.
53 pages in and I couldn‘t tell you what this book is about. My wife @Reviewsbylola recommended this because she thought I would like it, but she couldn‘t have been more wrong. 😂 if nonstop Shakespeare references and band camp squabbling is your thing then I think you will love this. If you‘re looking for a dystopian / cursed earth novel you‘ve got your work cut out for you with this one.
Do you like action boarding on horror with a touch of drama? If so this is it. This is the third book in the Wayward Pines trilogy and I read them all back to back. I don‘t usually do that but I had to know what happens next. All three of these books kept me on the edge of my seat. I highly recommend checking them out.
Wow! I read this in about 6 hours, I just couldn‘t stop. Gripping from page one, a murder mystery in a town that‘s not what it seems. If you haven‘t read the first book in this series do so before reading this. Seriously so much book is packed into just 298 pages.
This book had me in the first few pages, and I couldn‘t put it down. It has a little something for everyone, murder mystery action. If you‘re looking for something different and exciting this might be it.
This is the inspiration for the movie Bladerunner also one of the few times I will say that the movie was better than the book. However I didn‘t like the movie before reading the book. So I guess the book was good because 1. I enjoyed it, and 2. It helped me to enjoy a movie that I didn‘t like before.
Remember writing papers in school that had to be 1000 words or more so you wrote sentences like, Furthermore I feel like anyone that reads the subject matter will agree with the opinion of most other people that the topic presented in the subject matter was of great relevance and very important to those involved. That's this book. Instead of character names he uses titles like: The archeologist, and The psychologist. Ok read, and only 195 pages.
