Way of Kings Readalong Kick off!




It's finally here! The Way of Kings Readalong officially begins today. Even if you don't usually read epic fantasy, Sanderson is a great place to start - his stories are so rich and exciting, and the amount of planning that goes into them is insane!

Over the next few weeks, I'll be posting my thoughts and predictions each Sunday, and maybe some other tidbits and updates during the week. It's never too late to join - if you don't have a copy of the book yet, the kindle version of the book is on sale for $2.99 right now so don't miss out!

Feel free to chime in with your thoughts in the comments of my blog posts, but if you have your own blog posts, leave a link in the comments or on twitter (my handle is @spidersilksnow)! And if you're tweeting anything about the readalong, you can use the hashtag #WoKRA

Here's the schedule - I divided it up so that we're reading about 200 pages a week. If you decide to go ahead, please keep your comments spoiler-free for the later parts of the book.

I'm so excited to start reading and discuss this book with everyone! I am under the firm impression that Brandon Sanderson is a god on earth and master storyteller, and I cannot wait to see how his epic fantasy series turns out.

See you all in a week!

    Yay!!! I'm loving everything about this book. It's really nothing like I thought it was going to be. It really pulls you in from the very beginning!

  2. I adore Sanderson. I'll be following your discussion but won't be reading it. Already did my re-read and exhaustive post on my theories about this xD

    I do however need to do a re-read of WoR, but I'll probably just wait till we are closer to the release of Stones Unhallowed :)

  5. I don't know when he is planning on releasing Stones Unhallowed since he hasn't even started writing it yet >.< But I'd like to do it a few months before release date so it's fresh in mind.

  9. No :( He says he is going to start writing it by the end of Summer, so...long wait still.

  10. Then again, this is Sanderson. He writes insanely fast! I don't think it will be much longer than 2 years (or maybe it's just wishful thinking on my part haha)

  11. Nah, I doubt it'd be more than 2 years. Although he does have a lot of different series that need sequels so who knows lol.

  12. Got the book from the library - It's HUGE!! Glad we're reading it together or I'd put it off. LOL!
