    Hey no worries! Before this year, I only read about..2 books in the previous two years combined. It gets hard sometimes, and especially when you have a kid.

    Vacations are great times to catch up on reading :) Which is why most of my luggage weight on trips consists of books :look

    I never read at home anymore. Audiobooks on my commute is it!

    I finished Chapter 12 yesterday morning (back to tSR this morning :giggle) and I had forgotten how... gruesome some of this story is.

    Fantasy books in general can be very gory (at least in my opinion) and I tend to skim those parts bc I don't like that.... But yay for Audiobooks and listening to the entire description :x

    WoT was my Fantasy world for a decade, I didn't read much else outside RJ, except for maybe Tad Williams. When I read Mistborn I was like :0
    It was more gruesome than I was expecting. I was just so used to RJ's style.

    Have you read "The Lies of Locke Lamora", by Scott Lynch, yet? If you haven't, I HIGHLY recommend the series (I love the books so much, I considered running a Gentlemen Bastards Mafia game at one point), but they are absolutely graphic. Enough to give me physical reactions when I read the descriptions he gives of.... certain things. :x

    Gah I just finished chapter 8. I do not like gore :x

    Thoughts so far - it's intriguing and I want to know what happens. I'm not feeling that into it, though. We'll see as I keep going.

    I also forgot about the gore. Although it doesn't bother me personally, I am reading the copy that I bought for my sister (she never read it) and I'm now realizing this is probably too gory for her. :lol

    I'm a bit behind 'cause I was finishing the other book I'm reading (Seveneves by Neal Stephenson), but now that I'm done with that, I can catch back up on Mistborn! :D

    Oh man I just finished chapter 26 (whoops, went way ahead)

    Four more deaths.

    Anyway, I'm probably going to finish the book today. I'm really into it now.
