Waiting for (Winds of) Winter can get tiring, so I started looking at other book series to keep me busy. I feel dirty for “cheating” on GRRM, but I can’t wait forever 🙂 So I started reading in parallel Sanderson’s “Stormlight Archive” and Rothfuss’s “Kingkiller Chronicles”, trying to decide which one to “pick up” first. I started Stormlight first, and now, about 45% in the book, it is officially a go! I reached the point of no return in the book, that point where you know you won’t, you can’t stop reading until you finish.
In order to slow me down a bit, I am starting this “near-instant reactions” blog post. “Near instant” because a lot of the reading is late at night, and I am not going to write instant reactions at 2am 🙂 These will be mostly raw and unfiltered and unedited thoughts and opinions.
Everything I write below will be based on what I read so far, I won’t write after-the-fact, so there won’t be any future chapter spoilers from where I currently am (since I won’t know what happens next). To keep it as spoiler free as possible, the updates below are in chronological order. Each segment talks up to the point I read. I am reading the Kindle version, so page numbers and percentages are from that.
SPOILERS BELOW if you haven’t read anything yet from the Stormlight Archive books!
PROGRESS REPORT: Finished Book #1!
