Adventure is set up, and they're about to set out! I do hope we run into Jez's people and get to know them a bit more. She's by far my most favorite character.

So far there's a lot of telling, not showing, but I suppose there's only so much detail you can give in 160 odd pages. It's a fairly fun world, lots of interesting characters. I'm curious to see where it leads.

Wow, things are among up big time. I expect no less! But damn, the strain is real.

I think it's so funny how Sanderson takes some of our real-world modern philosophical concepts and packages them as Marasi's enlightened thoughts. It feels a bit like patronizing, though I'm sure that's not how he meant it.

I'm really not invested in the characters or this book. Sarah Addison Allen does it better.

This is a fascinating book, but it's also a bit slow plodding.

So far the adventure is already happening! Sanderson doesn't waste any time in getting the action kicking. I love it

So far it's like the radio show, but in book form. The mystery seems to have been referenced in the latest podcast episode ("we all know what happened with the tan in the man jacket and we won't talk about that" bit). I'm keen on reading more!

♥Xeni♥ is on page 72 of 272 of Ratio: The Simple Codes Behind the Craft of Everyday Cooking
Finished dough, on to batters! So far I've tried the bread, lemon poppy seed cookies, pasta dough and I will soon try pie dough. These are excellent basic ratios!

So far it's a cute book, though quite predictable.

So far, this is a fairly fascinating look into the life of the Dumas family. I'm highly enjoying it in the minimal down time I have!

I honestly don't know if I can finish this book. It is incredibly off putting.

Only a book published this long ago would title a chapter "Nigger Heaven" and talk about the people populating Harlem in such a zoo-like way.

I've been reading a bit each day during my transit and so far it's quite enjoyable! Easily an excellent book. I can't wait to see how it ends.
