bummer!
maybe you'll find the time eventually?


Saar The Book owl Not for this month. I think I have 9 books for this month. But I'm curious on what the others think of the book.


message 6: by Elisa (new)

Elisa (elisabookishexpat) Oh yay!! Going to start this later today or tomorrow!

Ashley Marie  | 335 comments I read this a year or so ago, so I'll lurk in the corner and pitch in with thoughts here and there. I will say I love the creativity of the magic system in this book. Have fun, all!


message 8: by Cathy (new)

Cathy I am going to get to this book eventually, I swear, but it will not be this month, sadly. It'll be fun to follow along and see how you all are enjoying it, though! :)

Natulcien_reads | 257 comments I'm listening to the audiobook again (highly recommend, btw!!) so I can continue with the series :-)

I will be reading it this month! Though it might be towards the end of the month, so I hopefully will be able to join in on the discussion later :)

I will be here to cheer with you over Kel and Breeze *_*


message 14: by [deleted user] (new)

I've had this book for a while, but its been so hyped I haven't read it yet. :p


message 15: by lucie (new)

lucie (arey) I started it yesterday

it's weird to read about a main character who is not a teenager!


message 16: by lucie (last edited Jan 05, 2018 09:15AM) (new)

lucie (arey) i dont know how relevant this is but i had butteflies in my belly when Vin met Elend 😍 is this my ship? should i ship them?

Well... I haven’t really gotten into it yet. But I’m used to that when reading Brandon Sanderson books. I know there will be a point where all of a sudden I won’t be able to put it down!! 😄

Natulcien_reads | 257 comments I'm halfway through chapter 16 and I'm enjoying it just as much as the first time around :-)

How's everyone else doing? Are you enjoying it?

For anyone who's come across it yet: What do you think of Kelsier's plan?

Kelsier is CRAZY! I dont see how the plan could work, the plan is complicated and there's a lot of thing that can ruin it. But I have to admit, it's pretty clever.

I am reading chapter 27 right now

He is CRAZY, but hey, if Vin can get used to him being crazy... :-)
I loved how the plan was plotted out.

He is, but I think he could grow on you.

Ashley Marie  | 335 comments What do you guys think of the rest of the crew? Any favorites?

Personally I grew very attached to Spook.

I find Sazed to be very interesting.

I agree with Sazed - we dont know a lot about him and that makes him interesting. I hope we will know more about his 'kind'


message 28: by lucie (new)

lucie (arey) FINISHED


message 29: by Natulcien_reads (new)

Natulcien_reads | 257 comments Congrats 😀


message 30: by lucie (new)

lucie (arey) If you could have an allomancy, what it would be? (all of them is not an option, haha)


message 31: by Natulcien_reads (new)

Natulcien_reads | 257 comments That's a hard one, I'll have to think about that one 😁

Ah no fair 😉

I’m only on chapter 5, so I might change my mind later, but right now I’d have to go for Pewter or Brass 😊


message 33: by Natulcien_reads (new)

Natulcien_reads | 257 comments I think I'd go for brass as well, it would come in handy for my pupils 😂😂


message 34: by Ashley Marie (new)

Ashley Marie  | 335 comments Ooooh good one, Lucie. Tin or copper here.

Totally just bought the whole series in paperback on Amazon...was talking to a girl at work who has read the series and she agreed it was totally worth buying. Super excited to dive into them!

Have you started the first book yet? I'm almost finished and it's just as good as the first time I read it. Now all I have to do is make sure I continue with the second book in the next couple of weeks :-)


message 38: by Natulcien_reads (new)

Natulcien_reads | 257 comments I've finished my reread last night. Clearly, I had forgotten some things about the ending, but I'm sooooo excited to continue on with the trilogy (series). (I am going to read Illuminae first, because I hardly ever marathon series).

For those who've already finished it: (view spoiler)

Question: What would you rather be? An Allomancer or a Feruchemist?

Vin: (view spoiler)

Marsh: (view spoiler)

Q: What was your favorite part of the book? What comes to your mind first?
My first thought is how Vin and Elend have met on the balcony. :D

Hmm, the first favourite part that comes to mind... When Kelsier starts to teach Vin on how to pull Iron and push Steel and the following 'practice' scene :-)

Ugh so I am bummed I didn't get to finish this in January but I will be finishing it and maybe can tag along with a buddy read for the next book in February.
So far I am a little ways into the book and it is really good. I love the different type of magic that is in this story.

Lucie and I kind of cheated and we started ahead of time (sorry), but if you want to you can send us a message if you start the second book and we can discuss it :-) (or The Final Empire for that matter!)
