So I finished up Tome Topple and I’m ok with my progress. I wish I could have completed Hero of Ages but it only took me a couple of extra days.
So I can’t believe that I’m actually finished with The First Mistborn series. I will admit to wanting to just get this finished so that I could read the second part of these books which seems more up my street. I enjoyed the last book way more than the second but I’m really disappointed in the ending. I just think that some of the characters deserved more. I liked getting to know more about the Kandra and Inquisitors but I think that leaving all that until the last book was unnecessary. I really liked the perspectives much more in this book. Such a better mix. I can’t say that I recommend this series to everyone. I think ti was a labour of love for me because I like Brandon Sanderson. There’s just so much more to explore in this world and I’m really looking forward to getting to The Alloy of Law
And just to give myself a bit of a break I picked up Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck which is pretty close to my favourite classics of all time. This is such a short book but I constantly just want to pick it up and read it. I just feel really emotionally involved in the story. i first picked up this book as part of school studies and I never was a cool kid at school so I admit to enjoying this. It wasn’t until a couple of years later that I really grew to love this book. I think some people will probably comment on the language ad prejudice but it was in the 30s around the Great Depression and was about writing a true reflection of society.
So I am currently reading Tess of the D’Urbervilles by Tom Hardy and I’m struggling through it. I thought I would like this but it is way more whimsical that I thought it would be.
I have also finally got Bright We Burn by Keirsten White and just like the other books it’s quite slow and we are moving around perspectives quite a bit. Also it’s way shorter than I expected it to be. Does anyone else worry when the last book of a series is the smallest?
So there’s another week of ramblings. Hopefully I will have finished something for next week.
