This week I have finished Crown of Swords by Robert Jordan and started Path of Daggers by Robert Jordan. This is my second go through of the Wheel of Time series and I am listening to the audiobooks. They are SO GOOD! Like, ridiculously good. I put off listening to them for a long time.
My husband has recommended the audiobooks quite a few times and I was so stuck on Jim Dale who read me my first Harry Potter book. I love his rendition of them. But Michael Kramer and Kate Reading do such a good job with this series. I highly recommend listening to it if you’re into audiobooks!
I’m also still reading The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson. I’m about half way through at this point. The book definitely ebbs and flows through the storyline. I tend to slow down with my reading of it when the plot gets to a slower point or introduces more characters(there’s quite a few, but not as many as the Wheel of Time Series!)
I’ve been going through this rereading(listening) of the WoT series for some time now. I like this because it allows me to read more books at once and I like to listen to them when I walk my dogs and drive for work(I do a lot of driving some months).
Do you like audiobooks? What are you currently reading?
I have not read this book before. It is the book that my book club voted to read this month. The meeting is on Sunday and I still have like 100 pages to read! Which shouldn’t take me that long. I hope.
But so far it’s a very interesting book wrote from a completely different kind of voice that I haven’t seen before. It’s pretty interesting.
I’m doing this Friday Reads a little differently. I read this book a few weeks ago but I was out of town for work when I read it and I did not make time to blog about it!
Feyre survived Amarantha’s clutches to return to the Spring Court—but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can’t forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people.
Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world cleaved in two.
A Court of Mist and Fury was an amazing book. It’s the second installment of A Court of Thorns and Roses and I can’t wait until the third book comes out! I’m not sure if I can survive until May when it’s scheduled to be published. I want to know SO BADLY what’s going to happen. The plot twist at the end with Feyre, Tamlin, Rhysand and Feyre’s family was INSANE. Sarah J Maas really does know how to create a cliffhanger!
If you like fantasy books I definitely recommend this series! It’s amazing, keeps your interest and you want to keep coming back for more.
I had been anticipating this book for a while and I was a bit disappointed with it. And it sucks to be disappointed with a book that you’ve been waiting to come out for a while. This series had so much building up for the ending and it felt like a letdown, to be honest.
The tone, or voice, of the story, changed. Even though it was the same author. And I haven’t really experienced that before with a book that the same author is writing. And it bugged me. A lot.
This book also felt rushed. That may have been the publishers or editors doing. But that didn’t make me happy either. So, overall, I really liked the series but I wasn’t too happy with how it ended. It ended ok, but it still left me with the feeling of “WTF just happened?!” It just wasn’t satisfying.
I read some reviews on Good Reads about this book and some people loved how it ended. So you will have to decide for yourself!
