Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7654 comments I made a start on this tonight! The prologue was pretty much a 'previously on the Rain Wild Chronicles...' lol.

Chapter 1 (view spoiler)

Anni | 5020 comments Uuuh! I forgot that the BR already starts today! I'll finish Mistborn 4 first and will start this one tomorrow or Friday :) I'm really excited!

Kathrine | 1246 comments I can hopefully start this weekend! Got a bit of a situation at work right now (my boss isn't being very nice to us, so me and three of my colleagues have a meeting with HR about it Monday – fun times 😅)

Bea | 2052 comments Seven chapters in and I'm beginning to see what Petrik meant when he said this series is a bunch of characters going on a STD-spree 😅

Bea | 2052 comments Finished! A little slow and a bit too much focus on teenagers' love life but I still enjoyed it.

Bea | 2052 comments Also, can we appreciate how Robin Hobb creates complex characters that you are really able to hate (yes, I see that as something positive) while she still manages to present a backstory of why they are this way? And I like that the good guys always have some flaws, too.

Yes! Absolutely love this about Hobb's characters. She's created some of the most hateable characters ever I think!

I am so glad we have the messages again too! :)

Yes this was only 10 pages of things, and I'm a goofball, but I had to share some thoughts, lol

❤️❤️❤️ I love these thoughts!! I love it when like 10 pages of a book can make you feel so much! XD
I'm totally there with you on the page 57 shipping! 😅

I felt the same. I enjoyed it though because it had a focus on characters rather than fighting and war which is what I’m finding myself gravitate to more these days.

I agree with Siobhan! Such a great update, that's something I really enjoy doing Buddy Reads, seing otheres in love with the book, makes it even more special

Anni | 5020 comments I wrote this before on the Dragon Keeper thread, but I'm still thinking about it, can someone please helo me out? My memory is a bit foggy

'I'm afraid it's far too long since I've read the other books, but wasn't there a scene with Fitz traveling to an abandoned city with a big building with doors wide enough for dragons. I think he also had a vision of someone wearing the roostercrown there. Could that have been Kelsingra?'

No I haven't, I only read Dragon Keeper last year and then decided to read the whole series another time :)

Even with the bothering bits it's still a very enjoyable read, I personally think it's a bit more superficial than hobbs other books, but I like it. Especially the interaction with the dragons of course and (Chapter 8) (view spoiler)

Ah yes, sorry I remember you saying you'd only read book 1 now! That's even better that we're reading the rest for the first time together :)

I really agree. I'm still enjoying it very much! Despite their annoying relationships and misunderstandings and blatant ignorance. The things happening behind this stuff is still really interesting to me, and the dragons interactions are gold! :D

Only because I also have the audiobook to listen to, I wouldn't be nearly as fast if I would only read my copy 😅

And you're right (view spoiler)
