Hi, everyone! I want to start with a quick apology for the spotty posting these last few months. I recently got married and everything leading up to / through that was very overwhelming. A couple obligatory wedding photos below 😉
I hope to start relaxing back into a routine over the next few weeks again, and heading in to the holidays it’ll be lovely spending more time with you guys! Unfortunately timing-wise all this means I’ve mostly missed the creepy fall/Halloween books season, which is normally my thing being so into thrillers. But with everything else in the world I think that’s all right 😊 we’re just going to roll with it.
I’m also trying out this new informal post type for weekly/biweekly reading updates. Previously I had been doing the WWW Wednesday posts but I found having it mid week was inconvenient. My hope is doing a casual weekend catch up will be easier for me to keep up on as well as be a nice quick end of week post for fellow readers like yourself to pop in on. I enjoy doing the more structured review posts but they take a lot of effort to put together, so this should be a nice contrast.
With that said I’ve recently been on a Sanderson binge! I’ve read the Stormlight archive series thus far (1-4 as of this writing), but I hadn’t read anything else by him. This last week or so I started the Mistborn series. I’ve made it through books 1 and 2 so far and it’s been an incredible journey!! I’m very excited to continue in the world in book 3. I’m a little hesitant about second era, though (books 4-6); they seem to get mixed feedback since Sanderson tweaks the genre on you and brings in whole new characters. What are your thoughts if you’ve read the two Mistborn eras?
