Caitlin H Ooo, i'm a fan of the "You should read this if you like" bit! It helps to give a quick introductory glance at what each book is basing in.

Because the list is for standalones - though, the introduction gives a little shout-out to Sanderson.

City of Brass is not a standalone though.

Jenny If you read the very top of the page, the author says this:

"Need another excuse to go to the bookstore this week? We've got you covered. In addition to highly anticipated sequels from Brandon Sanderson and David Baldacci, check out these brand-new standalone titles Goodreads members are loving."

Maybe they messed up on the standalones part, but they did mention Oathbringer, just not by name.


Morgan | Mashleas Reads City of Brass and Whichwood look amazing! Those covers!! Argh.
