    Just started reading The Fifth Season, only ten pages in. Finishing Skyward first, then switching over. ^^

    FYI, Jemisin's Inheritance Trilogy is on sale at Amazon US (eBook) for $2.99 today. Three books + a novella for that price is insane. I read these books through my public library, and am happy to now have them in my personal library. ^^

    I second this. Been wanting to read them forever, so I finally bought it.

    Now to squeeze it into an Oathbringer reading I've been doing........

    Read The Fifth Season not too long ago and immensely enjoyed it, 100% think it deserved its Hugo and will definitely read the rest of the trilogy.

    Though maybe because she had been so hyped up, I was somewhat disappointed. Not in that it was bad--the book was great and I finished it in like 3 days. But I was kind of expecting to feel like a complete sense of awe and amazement at the inventiveness (the last book I recall having that effect on me being Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell) and that never came.

    I'm gonna start reading these when I'm done with Rythmn of War. Should I just start with the first published book? Are they connected?

    Well, she has a few independent series, so it depends on what you want to read. The Fifth Season is the best one to start with, in my opinion.
