Yeah, I've actually only read Mistborn, Stormlight Archive, Elantris and Warbreaker so far. Still need to read First of the Sun, White Sand, The Emperor's Soul and his non-Cosmere stuff. And I had about 80% of Mistborn: Secret History spoiled before I read it lol. Was still very enjoyable.

I have all the Mistborn, SA, and Reckoners books and have read them. I bought the Ars Acanum too which had a lot of really good shorter works including Edgedancer, Secret History, Emperor's Soul, and several other stories only in that book.

You mean Arcanum Unbounded? Ars Arcanum is the information at the end of each book.

 

(I always mess the names up myself as well)

I'm on my first read of Warbreaker now.  I don't think I've even heard of Skyward before. 

 

Skyward is his next project... it was just announced right after Oathbringer was released, I think.  :laugh:

I finished Oathbringer (for the second time, because I didn't re-read the first two books before it came out and I decided i wanted to start from the beginning because I am insane)... then i started back re-reading Mistborn, because I hadn't read The Bands of Mourning yet, or Arcanum Unbounded, and I was feeling hazy on a lot of details of the series.

 

I'm about 2/3 of the way through The Bands of Mourning now.  This has been quite a Sanderson Binge.

 

I haven't read Bands of Mourning yet either, so I'm going to reread Alloy of Law and then read the other two, and then read Arcanum Unbounded (so far, I have only read Edgedancer, because I want to avoid spoilers). Right now though, I am halfway through Anna Karenina, my first real classic, or at least, the first one that it looks like I might finish. Nineteenth Century novels tend to bore me, although I love Poe's and Arthur Conan Doyle's short stories. I think I will try to tackle The Old Man and the Sea next because it is short, and I have never read Hemingway. Then it's back to fantasy. :smile:

Oh god yes.

 

I cannot believe how incredibly difficult it was for me to finish David Copperfield.

I was really surprised when the Statue of Liberty disappeared.

One of my reading goals for this year is to read a classic and read a piece of non fiction. I think I should change it to read anything because I am still on my first book of the year.

My only reading goal is to read what I feel like reading.

 

Currently, that means rereading all Cosmere.

I set a quantity goal in the Brown Ajah book challenge last year and easily exceeded it, but this year, like you guys, I'm just going to read what I want to and without any numerical goals in mind.

 

I finished Anna Karenina. I liked it! He could have cut a fair bit out of it and had a better story IMO, but I can see why it's considered a classic. I was particularly caught off guard when we got a couple of POVs from one of the character's hunting dogs. That was very avant-garde for 1870, I would say. He also did a fine job of canine character development in a few short paragraphs. 

 

Then I read The Martian Chronicles, which I thought I had read when I was 13 or so, but apparently, all I read was the story about the futuristic house in California burning down. I can see how the Martian Chronicles was a foundational work, as I saw echoes of multiple Twilight Zone and original Star Trek episodes in it. 

 

So...2018 began as the year of the classics for me, but I am going to move back to fantasy, now. I think I'll listen to The Rithmatist first, then I'll do the Mistborn spinoffs, and that should be plenty of Sanderson until he writes the next Stormlight volume.

Yeah I always read the new SA books immediately and then immediately want the next one!

 

I'm at CoS in my WoT reread and that's been keeping me busy. It's been a bit since I've done a reread.

 

Probably will start reading some of the many books I've bought over the years and not read next. Want to get some of the Discworld novels at some point and the Name of the Wind at some point too.

 

My list is always waaaay too long, which is why I don't do rereads much, but WoT is always in the mix. I'll usually reread SA before the next one coems out too.
