    I'm reading A Little Life and it's making me fall back in love with reading again after a year of starting and not finishing books. I'm nearly halfway through and already a bit obsessed with it. I need to know what is going to happen to these characters and hoping they are ok.

    It's definitely worth it. And, yeah, the physical aspects are experience enhancing; but the story is very interesting and creepy.

    at around page 700 of The Way of Kings and have been loving it so far. Every Kaladin chapter is such a joy to read. Are the rest of the books of the same quality?

    I say this with 100% sincerity: they're even better by a large margin.

    When you finish WoK you probably won't agree but the books progressively get better. Although admittedly I preferred Way of Kings to Words of Radiance. Oathbringer was an absolute avalanche.

    I'll echo that they continue to get better

    Is this your first Cosmere book or have you read Mistborn? I wish I could read these books again for the first time.

    That whole Mistborn trilogy was the greatest gutpunch of my life.

    First Brandon Sanderson Novel tbh. I’m a massive fan of massive sprawling epic which is why I jumped straight into way of kings. I’ll 100% be doing the rest of the cosmere books

    Im really excited to eventually get to Mistborn + Warbreaker but i just have a massive back log of books right now so itll be a while lol. Still gotta finish up Way of Kings, then do the last 2 book in the southern reach trilogy, The Familiar vol 5 (which ive been too afraid of reading ever since the series was cancelled) and the other two Stormlight Archive novels. This doesnt even include the literal hundreds of comics books i want to read at all times. THERES JUST TOO MUCH TO READ.

    Today a friend of mine sent me a message with a book recommendation to check out, and I just wanted to say "DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY BOOKS I NEED TO READ BEFORE I LOOK AT THIS ONE!".

    Good thing is that these are constant books and his release schedule is insane. Thing with Sanderson is about 80% of the way through he just hits you with so much epic adventure and lore that you need to read the rest.

    My to be read pile is ridiculous too and I keep adding to it thinking I'll do it all one day but I know I won't....

    damn I need to get back on Mistborn. I flatlined there and haven't touched it in weeks. Not a condemnation of the book, which is fantastic, just sort of where my life is right now

    The last eight hours of the audiobook I paced in a circle stress eating.

    The Secret Teachings of All Ages and The Corpus Hermeticum. Sort of using the former as a companion piece for the latter. Really mind blowing stuff but not for everyone - this is probably the third time I've come back to these pieces to try and read them and it's finally clicking ngl experiencing dmt really helped with that. I have Carl Jung's Symbols of Transformation on the backburner as well, I'm sort of bouncing between these books as needed.
