Our winners are A Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe for sci fi and Oathbringer for fantasy.

They’re kind of big books, so get ready early.

Dawn | 1139 comments will there be mod special to read as a substitute since I've just read Oathbringer a few weeks ago?

I doubt ill be reading A Big Ship, but I do plan on doing a re-read of Oathbringer, I just finished a re-read of the first and figure I can get the second done before the end of the year.

Rick Ha. Just finished A Big Ship. I liked it - a riff on the 'ragtag crew discovers Big Secret That Others Will Kill To Hide' theme but it's mostly fun and reads fast. It's also, at least in the US, on sale in ebook form for $2.99.

Carlos Segura | 12 comments Haha I recently started The Way of Kings... so I better start giving up sleep to catch up and read Oathbringer in January!

Same lol. I just put a hold on The Way of Kings and I'm 2 of 2 with only 3 copies in the library, all of which are out! The wait for the ebook is even worse. Not looking good for me...

Thanks for that - just picked it up - ready with one!

It took me about ten weeks to get through Way of Kings and six weeks to get through Words of Radiance.

Vinca Russell (vinxlady) | 1315 comments I'll not be reading Oathbringer as I'm shamefully behind when it comes to Sanderson, like so far behind I've not yet read Mistborn...

The other one sounds like fun and in the UK is also on sale pretty cheaply (£2.49) so I'll try to get through that one in January and join in.

The holds at the library definitely test someone's patience... I bought The Way of Kings and probably will buy Words of Radiance too as I'm most likely gonna reread them in the future. I also plan to have my future kids (no kids yet or on the way) read it as soon as they learn how to read haha

Same for me, Vinca. Every year I say I'll get to them... :p

Maximum Beans (maximumbeans) | 515 comments Oathbringer is on my TBR, but I need to figure out if I can read it in January or not. I've read the first two, and I read the short story about the girl who slides around and eats things, can't remember her name. What's bugging me is I want to try and catch up on any missing Cosmere books first, I've read all the Mistborn books, so that's a start. I'll take a look a chronology somewhere and fill the gaps before Oathbringer if I can.

The very end of Words of Radiance has a reference to Warbreaker. Edgedancer is before Oathbringer; looks like you got that one.

Our Bi-Monthly Mod special will be The Phantom Tollbooth

Yeah!!


message 19: by Vinca (new)

Vinca Russell (vinxlady) | 1315 comments That's one of those books that keeps cropping up on book lists and in trivia quizzes. I've never read it before but this seems like the perfect time to join in and pick it up. For UK folk it's only 99p on Kindle just now.

Shawnie, maybe 2019 will finally be the year we read Mistborn! Glad I'm not the only one who hasn't read it yet :-D

Vinca, let's do it! I'll commit. :D

I got the Mistborn trilogy for Christmas. I’ve listened to the audio from the library, but I’m glad to have my own copy. I hope to reread it this year.


message 22: by Shawnie (new)

Shawnie | 1895 comments Maybe we can get a Mistborn buddy read together...

I think we’ve done the first two for BOTM, but I don’t think the third has been picked yet.
