Finally finished it.  Quite the 3rd and 4th acts.  I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy this one at all but I think it may be my favourite yet of the 4.

I need to go back and re-read MistBorn I think before SL 5 is written.

felt like he had to rush to start wrapping stuff up in the last 1/5th of it. I was starting to get frustrated with things plateauing.

@diggity I can see that.  That's kind of how I found the first 3 to be as well, a really packed last act.  I find Kaladin's arc pretty tedious with all the woe is me shit, happy to get that Shallan reveal and the last bit with Taravangian and Wit was a good way to end it.

I appreciate the struggle Kaladin goes through to reach his ideals but i found it a bit annoying this time around. It does help with the lore that so many get stuck at the second or third tier. I also got really annoyed with Shallan and her multiple personalities but happy with how it resolved at the end.

 

I'm losing steam on Wheel of Time books, I think im on book 4 now and havent really gotten too far. Real life has been more insteresting as of late so I havent had the time. Hope to get back to it soon though.

 

I'd like to go back and do mistborn series again too at some point.

@diggity WoT is a mega slog.  RJ really needed an editor who wasn't his wife, it's brutal at times.  If you're feeling burned out Prime has adapted it for the screen and its supposed to debut in 2021, 8 episode season.

The Stand - Wikipedia

 

re-visiting this before checking out the recent mini-series.

 

Annihilation was good, and quick.  Looking forward to re-watching the movie and seeing how well it was adapted.

If you go for Welsh’s stuff, as I do, you’ll go for Dead Men’s Trousers with great enthusiasm. If you don’t … well, you were warned.

 fuck me it's heavy going..

Have any of you dipped into War Hammer 40k? I didn’t know anything about it at all until hearing a bit about it on a podcast earlier today. Had no idea it was so dark, piqued my interest. This book is supposed to be where you start but goddamn these used book prices are ridiculous!!

As a nerdy reader it's always been on my radar but I've never read anything.
