My Favourite Book Covers (Fantasy Books)

Like most readers, I do my best not to judge a book by its cover. I do, however, like to judge covers in their own right. I thought it would be a bit of fun to look through my fantasy book collection and see which covers were my favourite. This list is in no particular

Ranking the Cosmere Books

I have read all of the main cosmere books, so they are the ones that I’m listing below. The system for the cosmere books ranked here is based purely on my enjoyment of the book, rather than looking at the individual novels in a literary sense – but of course those opinions often overlap! Although

Oathbringer by Brandon Sanderson: Book Review

My Review My Rating: 4/5 SPOILER FREE It’s so hard to review epic fantasy books like Oathbringer, especially when they’re not the first in the series, but I’ll try! I rated The Way of Kings and Words of Radiance 5/5. They were essentially perfect. Yes, there were a few things I mentioned in my reviews,

Why You Should Read Mistborn Era 2, The Alloy Era

I recently finished reading The Bands of Mourning which is the third book in Mistborn Era 2. This is something I was not sure I would do when I finished The Alloy of Law (The Alloy Era #1). The first book in this series bored me. I was high on the incredible ending of the

Edgedancer by Brandon Sanderson: Book Review

My Review My Rating: 4/5 I was told to read this before reading Oathbringer (Stormlight Archive #3) so I picked up Arcanum Unbounded and jumped to the final ‘short’ story. Lift is a wonderful character in Edgedancer. I remember her POV standing out in the Interludes of Words of Radiance. Lift is going to be

The Hope of Elantris by Brandon Sanderson: Book Review

My Review My Rating: 3/5 I read The Hope of Elantris Brandon Sanderson in the collection, Arcanum Unbounded. The postscript to this short story is beautiful – don’t skip it. Brandon Sanderson’s heart is the size of his Cosmere – every writer should aspire to be this amazing with their fans. Anyway, I’ll stop gushing!

Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson: Book Review

My Review My Rating: 4/5 As always, the last 50-100 pages in Warbreaker wouldn’t let me put it down! Brandon Sanderson had me hooked and he knew it! This was told from the POV of a few characters so I will review Warbreaker by talking about them. Lightsong is the God who doesn’t believe in

Elantris by Brandon Sanderson: Book Review

My Review My Rating: 3/5 Firstly, if you are a Brandon Sanderson fan, you should read Elantris. There are two main reasons for this: Elantris is set in the Cosmere so there is the odd hint or two at the wider universe any fan would love to see! You can see how much a writer

Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson: Book Review

My Review My Rating: 5/5 There will probably be some spoilers in this review of Words of Radiance, as it’s for the second book in The Stormlight Archive series by Brandon Sanderson. Sanderson has a way of making his huge books incredibly easy to read. From the outset, over 1000 pages looks and feels like

The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson: Book Review

My Review My Rating: 5/5 Took me long enough to get round to The Way of Kings. I had to read Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn Trilogy before The Stormlight Archive though, as I wanted to complete something Sanderson had written before starting this monster! Firstly, I would like to say that the characters in The Way
