My November

And another month is over – I can’t believe it’s almost 2018!

It wasn’t a good month for me when it comes to reading. I finished 2 books, dnf a couple more and had a slight reading slump.

Now it’s all good again. I am re-reading the awesome Stormlight Archive series by Brandon Sanderson and am enjoying myself!

Here’s what I read

Black Sun Rising / C. S. Friedman –> finished! 2/5 Stars. My review is here. Promising setting and magic system, disappointing storyline, that was a bit all over the place and featured characters I couldn’t root for. I expected more. Will not continue, but might check out another of the author’s series at some point. Just not this one.

The Bazaar of Bad Dreams / Stephen King –> finished! 4/5 Stars. Review is coming. Much, much better than I thought. Good variety, only a couple stories I didn’t like. It helped that the stories were really short sometimes, as I was just getting out of my reading slump. I was able to put it down often and not lose the plot. Ended up reading it much quicker than expected though.

The Way of Kings Part 1/ Brandon Sanderson –> Reread. 327/592. Yup, I own the two part version if this book. I will still count it as one though. More than halfway done with this first part and I love it so much. Even more than the first time reading it, if that’s even possible ๐Ÿ˜€

 

What I want to read in December

Words of Radiance & Oathbringer / Brandon Sanderson –> Yes, I am glad I started from the beginning again. Makes me even more excited to finally pick up Oathbringer!

 

What I am watching

Shannara still. We are waiting for the last episodes on the Syfy channel. It’s been good for the most part, but some episodes have felt like fillers. I am tired of Will moping and whining all the time and CAN THEY PLEASE STOP MAKING ALLANON LOOK LIKE A PUSSY ALL THE TIME?! He’s a mighty druid, he shouldn’t be captured & get beaten up all the time ๐Ÿ˜€

Apart from that we are looking forward to starting American Gods soon. I just bought the DVD, yay!

We watched one episode of The Walking Dead and left it at that ๐Ÿ˜€ No wish to continue, it’s all the same anyways. This series is not developing, it’s stuck.

Also…. It’s Cricket Season now, and the Aussies love it to death. They enjoy watching a day-long game in which almost NOTHING happens…. I get the Big Bash league, that’s more interesting. But those day games.. Nah

  1. I’m with you, can’t believe November is done and ’18 is almost here. * screams and panics and runs in circles *
    Well, ok, maybe not quite. But my goodness, I feel like I blinked and ’17 is goooooone!

    Glad to hear that Sanderson has gotten you out of a slump. Magnificent writer.

    1. It was a really fast year!! Lots of stuff going on though, I feel like I didn’t catch a break. And we only went on a 5-day holiday. Need more! ๐Ÿ˜€

      I plan to take some days off in December though. Will you be working less the coming month as well?

  2. I’m going to reread The Stormlight Archives as well before Oathbringer is published in Germany. I hope they will translate it as fast as possible. But I’m not sure if Heine sold the copyrights to Piper, as they did with Wax and Wayne. I would hate to have another Sanderson series in different editions on my shelf. (Wax and Wayne book 1 and 2 look so awful next to each other mรคh)
    But there is no way I will read Oathbringer in English. I KNOW I would miss all the perfect details AND THIS IS NOT GONNA HAPPEN!!!

    (Btw I had a lot of month’ this year in which I did not finish a single book – so just don’t care)

  3. I’m glad you got out of the slumpy feel of November by the end. I ordered Words of Radiance so hopefully I can just binge those two next year. Oathbringer not yet as I’ll wait on the paperback that matches my others, haha. ๐Ÿ˜‰
