    I can't remember being this violently conflicted about a book in quite some time. There are some areas where it's just so well done, with the author absolutely nailing it, and then others where I found myself grinding my teeth in frustration. I'm going to abandon my usual practice of w...

    Actual Rating: 4.5 Stars This was my book club's pick of the month! I can't even believe this was so good. I mean I can, because it's Brandon Sanderson! But seriously... This was an excellent high fantasy novel. I'm going to try to put my feelings into words, but I find I have a...

    Note to self: You are no longer allowed to bring books this good on family road trips. It makes you antisocial. You ignore the great views outside the car. You resent being torn away from the book to spend time with family, and when you are you babble incessantly about how awesome it i...

    It reminds me of Ocean's Eleven meets The Italian Job, but set in Mordor after Sauron has ruled for 1000 years or so. In many fantasy stories, a dark lord is rising and it is up to our heroes to defeat him before that happens. In this, the Dark Lord is already set in place as the statu...

    Read for Popsugar's 2018 Reading Challenge #4: A Book Involving a Heist (re-read) I stand by my rating! This book is FANTASTIC but just not quite a 5-star read for me. I'm really glad that I took the time to read my physical copy this time around (I speed-read most of the book on a...

    Sometimes, I revisit a book I had loved ages ago, only to tell myself "What the actual fuck was I thinking?! This book is crap!!!!! Oh young Khanh, you were so dumb :(" Thankfully, this was absolutely NOT the case for this book. I appreciated it much more the second time around. It ...

    BOOKTALK HERE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C-XEW... Just as I expected, this book was FANTASTIC. The story, the characters, the world, the magic system--I loved it all! It was a wonderful first book in a series--satisfying on its own, yet there's still plenty to explore in futur...

    This book was wonderful and fantastic and amazing! It?s one of the best fantasy books that I?ve read. I hope I can do this book justice with my review. So bear with me while I ramble away. The main character of the book is Vin, a street orphan who has never known friendship or t...

    "He shall defend their ways, yet shall violate them. He will be their savior, yet they shall call him heretic. His name shall be Discord, yet they shall love him for it." A thousand years ago, a young and noble hero arose from rural obscurity into being hailed by Terris priests as t...

    This is an epic fantasy series and The Final Empire, the first book in the trilogy is, in itself, epic. A world oppressed by a dark ruler sees a thieving group take upon the mantels of heroes. This, along with the help of their mystical power, Alomancy, determines the fate of the Mistb...

    No words really to review this book or explain to you where it stands on the scale of bookish epicness. And this is after reading it 4 times. This series will always hold a unique place in my heart. It was my first exposure to adult fantasy and the start of my bookish obsession (sinc...

    ?The trick is to never stop looking. There?s always another secret.? Guys, what the fuck I'm 9000% sure that Sanderson practices Black magic. I have never felt SO conflicted over a book in my entire existence. No, I'm fully convinced that this is a product of bl...

    This review will contain unmarked spoilers. Wow. After five days of intense reading and here I am, baffled at what I just read. It's either I'm in a mood for fantasy or this book was just so darn good, because I did not expect myself to read this book in just five days. It's probably ...

    4.5 stars. I kept stalling on reading this because so many people told me I'd love it. I was worried the hype would be a letdown, but nope... this was SO GOOD. The last half was AMAZING and feels like a new favorite book, buuuut I honestly didn't get into it until around 40%. There...

    Oh my gosh. I have tears in my eyes. This was by far one of the best fantasy novels I've ever read. I don't even know how I'm going to function enough to give this a worthy review. Brandon Sanderson, you have rocked my world. Seriously, if you want to try a high fantasy but you...

    MOTHER. FUCKING. FANTASTIC. The writing, the story, the characters, the world, the magic, the battle scenes. All fantastic! _ A beautifully intricate plot that includes, that's right!... A heist! (A heist?) Anyway, if that alone isn?t a reason enough, I don?t know what is. ?...
