Petit Chocobo (petitchocobo) I just saw that the shadows of self won't be published until november 19th... maybe it should be to read on december? otherwise this is great :) added all of them to my to-buy-asap list XD

Weiry (weiryreviews) | 2 comments Ambre-marine, the US release date is October 6th, which is probably why it was scheduled as the November read. I take it you are in a region with a later release date? (obviously, I don't know why I asked that, you pretty much just said it...)


message 4: by *Layali* (new)

*Layali* (layalireads) This is true! I just purchased The Final Empire from there also for 3.99 in the trade paperback. Definitely worth checking out!


message 5: by Petit Chocobo (new)

Petit Chocobo (petitchocobo) Weiry, I live in France actually but I get my books from bookdepository which says that it will only be released on november. But I guess this is for the UK edition (which I usually prefer so that all my Brandon Sanderson match on my shelves) but I guess I'll have to get the US edition this time, or get the ebook version until the UK one comes out! :p

thats strange... i also do my shopping at bookdepository and it says october 6 on the US edition (the one published by Tor) and october 8 on the UK edition (the one published by GOllancz)...

Petit Chocobo (petitchocobo) Ungar5, I just checked again and you're right it says october 8 so I have no idea where I saw that it was only coming out in november o.O Anyway I'm glad it doesn't so I'll be able to get it in time ^^

EDIT: MYSTERY SOLVED! It's on goodreads that it says "expected publication on november 19th" :p I guess it's false XD

We saw that Shadows of Self was coming out in November which is why we decided to read it in November. If ten days isn't enough for you to read the book, you can always start something else by Sanderson. You don't necessarily have to read the books in this order, but you just need to make sure you've read all of them for the discussion :)

That is very odd! I just checked and they take me to the correct books!

Kerry Paginton | 3 comments Loving the readathon :) just a quick question. Does it matter which way round I read Elantris and The Emperors Soul this month?

Not at all, in my opinion. Unless you mean for the readathon specifically, then I don't know.


message 13: by Kerry (new)

Kerry Paginton | 3 comments Thanks. Didn't want to spoil myself by reading them in the wrong order :)


Melissa ♥ Dog/Wolf Lover ♥ Martin Hi all! :-). If we are behind will we still be able to comment on the books as we go? I figured you leave the threads up but one group I found deleted them every month. Thanks for the info. I look forward to reading with you all :-)

Yes we'll be leaving them open, no worries :D

It is supposedly October 6th. It may get pushed back, considering WoR got delayed due to certain reasons.

Raquel V (raquelvcc) | 33 comments So guys, I was wondering why aren't we reading Way of Kings and Words of Radiance in a row... Is it a Cosmere thing?

I think it's better to read Warbreaker in between for some reason.


message 20: by Andrew (new)

Andrew Stirling MacDonald (andrewstirlingmacdonald) | 4 comments There is a very good Cosmeric reason to read Warbreaker before Words of Radiance.

Yay! I was hoping there would be! Thanks Andrew and Bec for answering!

Is the reason a spoiler?


message 23: by Rebecca Jane (new)

Rebecca Jane (bec3sjhdbzljldsgwsm) | 4 comments Ok, thanks xD


message 24: by Sophie (new)

Sophie | 54 comments I'm not sure where is the best place to comment this but I'm part way through Shadows of Self and there doesn't seem to be any discussion threads for it on the group. Sorry if I'm just being completely blind!


message 25: by Milou (new)

Milou | 15 comments I was wondering the same thing


message 26: by Raquel (new)

Raquel V (raquelvcc) | 33 comments So, does anyone know what's going on with this group? There were no threads for Shadows of Self, and none for these month's reads either... I really loved getting to know Brandon Sanderson's work this year (he is now my favorite Fantasy author) and this amazing group is the big reason I did it. I miss the discussions!

Currently reading hasn't even updated yet. What happened? I miss you guys and all the interesting discussions!


message 28: by Sophie (new)

Sophie | 54 comments I miss the discussions as well! Year of Cosmere has been such a fun experience.


message 29: by Milou (new)

Milou | 15 comments Hey everyone, I hope you are all doing well. I was wondering if anyone has read The Bands of Mourning yet (I read it as soon as it came out, LOVED it), but most importantly, has anyone had a look at Mistborn: Secret History?? I have no idea what to expect from it.


message 30: by Sophie (new)

Sophie | 54 comments I started Bands of Mourning earlier today. I don't know anything about Mistborn: Secret History apart from the fact I want to read it because it has something to do with Mistborn and it's written by Brandon Sanderson. lol. Also a couple of my Goodreads friends/following have rated it 5 stars.


message 31: by Andrew (new)

Andrew Stirling MacDonald (andrewstirlingmacdonald) | 4 comments Secret History was amazing! My recommendation is that you make sure you have copies of the Era 1 trilogy on hand, because I promise you are going to want to reread them immediately upon finishing Secret Histories. As we are so off reminded, "There's always another secret..."


message 32: by Raquel (new)

Raquel V (raquelvcc) | 33 comments I heard wonderful things about Secret History as well. Lindsey Ray talked about it on her YouTube channel, saying it's the most Cosmere story of all (not a quote here). It sounds REALLY interesting!


message 33: by Elad (new)

Elad Bannett | 11 comments I was under the impression that after the year of cosmere was finished there would be a live hangout to discuss everything.
Are there plans? Did I miss it? Or is it just not happening?

I don't know what happened. From October on or so it got so quiet in here... I would love there to be a live hangout though
