Anni | 5048 comments Siobhan and me want to Buddy Read Oathbringer this month, as it's only the two of us, would it be ok to just use this thread? Like a (very early) head start?


message 3: by Siobhan (new)

Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7863 comments Ooh yes I second Anni's question! We'd be leaving little spoiler tagged presents for the April readers! :D

Barry (boprawira) | 1184 comments I don’t remember who I requested the BR with lol. But, go ahead.


message 5: by Siobhan (new)

Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7863 comments I think Charlie? I remember yous organising all 3 books a while ago.


message 6: by Barry (new)

Barry (boprawira) | 1184 comments You might be right. Thanks for the reminder, Siobhan (yay more points!).

Well, looking at the thread for WoK, seems there are quite a few people interested in reading the series. So, hopefully, we'll get a decent number continuing till this book.

Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7863 comments Ah that's good! Sanderson is normally a good draw XD

You're welcome. I planned a short answer but then get distracted by all the cool stuff going on there. Also do you think (view spoiler)

Haha! XD sorry! This is the only book I'm reading and I want to get lost in it!

Do you want me to start another book as a side project? So I can slow down a bit? 😅

That's up to you, but I surely can't keep up with your pace like this 🙈

It's OK if we're not at the same pace right? We can still discuss each point as you comment. I was aiming to finish before I start Farseer because I don't want to read two epic fantasies at the same time!

However, if you think it would be better to keep pace together, why don't we set a schedule of so many chapters a day? :)


message 21: by Anni (new)

Anni | 5048 comments I'm really sorry for holding you back! I'm currently in the middle of Chapter 11 and I'll to read a few more chapters now.
I just came back from a Pen&Paper Event. It was awesome and I'm too excited to imediately go to bed anyway 😂

I'm fine with setting a chapter schedule, but if you want to go on, don't let me stop you.

message 22: by Siobhan (new)

Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7863 comments Don't be sorry! You're not holding me back! :)

What's a Pen&Paper Event? Sounds great regardless, glad you had fun! :D

@Renarin (chapter 9) (view spoiler)

I didn't make much progress last night because I had lots of house stuff to read through from solicitors. :)

I might join you for Paper Magician. See how I feel tonight! 😂

message 29: by Anni (new)

Anni | 5048 comments Just finished chapter 20, but I'm too tired to update now 😅

But one thing I realized today is how... well funny the book is, it made me laugh a lot, without being silly or superficial, do you know what I mean? I don't think Book 1 and 2 were the same...


message 30: by Siobhan (new)

Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7863 comments I 100% know what you mean! :D
Every time I read a Shallan chapter I'm giggling away to myself and Sinjid asks me what's so funny!
And some of the things Navani says! 😅
It's just excellent!
I think we're about the same point. My kindle died so been listening to an audiobook on my phone. XD

This was a an "Oooh!" moment for me during this reread, though I completely missed it the first time through. I wont say what my suspicion is, but it certainly reminds me of a past character.

I don't remember there being any hint that was the case then, but it has been some time and they were certainly in the Dustbringer recruitment pool.

You're right, may be caused by the way of storytelling, to focus on a smaller group of character, as those were already introduced to us... (view spoiler)
