      I have finally read The Rithmatist by Sanderson, and I loved it, so I have to get around to his adult fantasies now!

      I do love the romances, but there are some plays like Timon of Athens that I understand why they’re just not as popular….

    Brandon Sanderson is a must. The Mistborn trilogy was one of my favourite binge reading sessions from 2015. He is a master in fantasy writing. I can never seem to get sucked in to Shakespeare’s plays but I hope you enjoy them.

      Now I’m even more excited to read Mistborn!

      I find that I have to see some of the plays to appreciate them fully. Some just don’t come alive for me when I read them.

    I love A Thread of Grace! I hope you make it through it this time. (She’s one of my favorite authors — The Sparrow is amazing.) I still need to read Mistborn, and I’m pretty sure I have The Disappearing Spoon on my Kindle — unread. 🙂 Hope to get to them soon!
