Last year, I met Brandon Sanderson for the first time during his tour for the release of Oathbringer, the third installment in the Stormlight Archive. At the time, I was in the middle of the first book. I had read his Reckoners series and the first three Mistborn, so I was definitely excited but I was obviously not in the same realm as his other fans at the event because I was so behind in the Stormlight Archive. That being said, it was one of the BEST events I had ever been to and I wrote a whole blog post on how awesome I truly thought and think Brandon is.
So…I wanted to read a ton of books in October and I failed miserably at that. Like, really really badly. I hit a really bad slump this month and was just so busy with other things and then I was really sick this month and…yeah, I just read basically nothing this month. I *am* nearly done with Empire of Storms. However, November is NaNoWriMo and I’m hoping to write more than read so…I guess we’ll see what happens! I’m really hoping to get some reading done though…I was on track to do MORE than 100 and now I’m not even sure I’ll reach it!
This week’s Waiting on Wednesday is the sophomore novel to her amazing debut, what is sure to be a fantastic release by the super sweet and awesome Aminah Mae Safi. Of course, I was always signed up for a new book by Aminah but once she said that it was basically a fan fiction of Rory and Paris from Gilmore Girls, I was 100% on board. I am so excited to see what this book brings!
It’s midnight and the moon is full, but Darth Vader isn’t scared.
This week’s Waiting on Wednesday is a novel that I’m still working my butt off to get an ARC of because I am SO insanely excited about – Sky Without Stars by Jessica Brody and Joanne Rendell. Just picture it now – Les Miserables in SPACE. I know, I’m sold too. Honestly, the novel sounds incredible and Jessica is a great writer and I can’t wait to get my hands on that book. AND THAT COVER!
The Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly challenge post previously hosted by The Broke and Bookish and now hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl. You can follow along for each weekly post here. This week’s post is all about the baddies! We kind of had the freedom to do what we wanted with the topic of villains and I decided to go with my favorites. Now, that doesn’t necessarily means characters I LIKE, but those villains that are SO bad that you love to hate them. There is nothing like a fantastic villain to get you into a book!
