You might have to start downing some Red Bull starting on the 14th.


message 23: by Andrew (new)

Andrew | 653 comments Three Buddy Reads for me: Dragon Reborn, Hawk Eternal, and Summer Tree. I'm SUPER stoked to read Summer Tree; I love GGK and epic fantasy, so how could GGK writing epic fantasy be anything other than awesome?

I also recently started The Passage (which is both a better novel and yet less captivating than I expected…not sure how it can be both) so that will probably trickle into early November, as well. That’s probably all I’ll get around to reading next month.

I made the call to read DHL and do audio for Oathbringer. SA is such a great series for audio.


message 25: by Lee (new)

Lee (leeman729) | 828 comments Right now, only one I can commit to is The Dragon Reborn haha. Might hop in for one or two others, but I'm not sure quite yet.

Margret | 3170 comments Mod
@Scott- don’t die of shock, but I finally put my hold on the audiobook for The Way of Kings

Ahdam (snowlocke) | 2423 comments Great picture chris I'm kind of jealous of the book cover of well of ascension as well as the other books can't wait to read game of thrones already read 30 pages of it

Also I'm reading way of kings now guys I've finally decided to pick it up and I wanna try my 5th attempt at duel reading this time trying to read 80/100 pages of each book maybe Sandersons your was a sufficient influence to have me start it and I'm liking it so far 😂😂😂

message 42: by Veronica (new)

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 3611 comments Scott wrote: "SA is such a great series for audio."

I agree but I think I could only manage audio for a reread. I'd be afraid of missing too many details for a first time through. I don't do a lot of audiobooks though so some of that might be due to the fact that I'm not 100% comfortable with my reading experience in that format.

There's certain writers who I would never undertake in audio format but BS is pretty straightforward in his style. His allure is in his world building.


message 44: by Shaitarn (new)

Shaitarn | 1931 comments I'm doing:

Daughter of the Forest
Age of Assassins
The Dragon Reborn
Sword-Maker
The Steel Remains
The Summer Tree

It's still going on if you want to jump in. Two or three of us are still reading it.


message 47: by Loralie (new)

Loralie | 48 comments That's so nice of you. But you have already seen my crazy tbr for November. I really don't think I can squeeze another one in there. ;)
