I finally found a fun and entertaining fantasy novel that wasn’t overly trite, interesting magic scheme, and decently well written. I really enjoyed Islington’s book, and am looking forward to reading the next in the trilogy. I started reading this book to get psyched about the next Stormlight Archive book, coming out next week!!!
I loved Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki. It was tough to get into at first, but as I got into it it stared to feel more like a murder mystery (Murakami style of course).
It’s done. Six months on my current reads list, and I have finally finished A Stormof Swords. This was by far the most difficult of the series to get through. I can move on to the next book, and hopefully be done with the booksbefore the final season starts.
