The Era 2 books of the Mistborn series are as close to perfection as one can get to in storytelling. Any Mistborn fans who skip the Era 2 books are depriving themselves of some of the best dry humor, classic Sanderson heartbreaking plot twists, and a cast of fantastically built characters, specifically, the best character of all time: Wayne. You’ll thank me when you meet him.
Rating: 5 stars

Tomorrow I will be posting my spoiler free review of Darkdawn, but this book was such an experience that I felt it needed a reaction post. For the record, these GIF reactions are in no particular order and should not constitute spoilers as there is absolutely no context. However, if you consider me stating an emotion I had at some non specified point in the book a spoiler, well then turn back BEFORE ITS TOO LATE!Read More

I have recently been exploring Edelweiss a bit more and becoming more familiar with its interface. During all this, I have stumbled upon numerous books that I hadn’t previous heard about, including today’s entry for Want Now Wednesday.Read More
The Mortal Instruments is where the Shadowhunter world begins, and while the plots can get muddled and weird, readers will remain hooked for the drama, the relateble characters, and most importantly, Magnus “I am the best character in this series” Bane.

Mirage is an intriguing YA Sci Fi debut, that has a lot of important themes and a unique setting, but falls into predictability.
