Hello my Readalong Friends, Turns out that my birthday was last week and that, as a surprise, I was taken to Scotland to celebrate it. Firstly, I must say: what an incredible country! As a fantasy fan I found it particularly enjoyable – Castles, Harry Potter, monsters in lakes: what more do you need? – but, of course, my relatives didn’t consider this readalong when booking it, did they!? So, I must apologise ON THEIR BEHALF that this week’s post, Chapters 21-28, are coming to you a week later than billed! However, there was a fair amount of reading, so I…

Way of Kings Read Along (Chapters 4- 8)

Hello once again, my fellow Readalongees. I hope that by now you have managed to secure a copy of Brandon Sanderson’s Way of Kings  (still just £1.99 as an ebook until the 3rd March) and that you’re managing to keep up with us as we move into the second week of this readalong. This first quarter of the book has seen heavy emphasis on the building and shaping of the two main characters, Kaladin and Shallan, and the masterful construction of the world of Roshar. The most important thing to know at this point is that upon this world are two great…
