Current Fun Readings

Aloha Everyone,

Mistborn, the Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson - This is the first novel of the Mistborn trilogy.  Book one was published in 2006. I am not sure when my granddaughter first read it by herself, but it is one of her favorite fantasy novels.

She wanted me to read this so we can discuss characters in the novel. I found it hard to put it down and it became a priority over other books until I finished it. The bonus is that my granddaughter and I had several meaningful discussions over the personalities of the main characters, their strengths and weaknesses and how each used their natural born and learned skills to navigate their lives challenges. 

Rhythm of War, Book Four of The Stormlight Archive - Brandon Sanderson 

Very familiar with the Stormlight series and looking forward to starting this latest book which my granddaughter received in the mail.

One issue for me is this is a very heavy and large hard covered book with 1,230 pages. Carrying it around would not be a good idea for my wrists.

Aloha -- Cathi
