  1. Hey, I thought I'll let you know how I'm getting on and that I'm still reading it, albeit slow though lol. I am enjoying it, I've just been somewhat busy and I'm just passing out everything I get into bed and not being able to read any lol. I'm gonna read a few chapters tonight though
  2. I think like 2 other ones.

    And nice, it starts off I think kind of slow but don't worry man. Let me know how you finding it so far. I especially want to hear your thoughts once you've finished book 1.
  3. Nice, I don't think I can take waiting years for another series lol. And that is pretty awesome that he is on Reddit and that he talks to fans, he gets a lot of respect from me for that. But damn he is busy, how many series is he writing lol.

    I've done about 5 chapters know, I'm a slow reader lol. I'll read some more tonight. But it is super interesting and I'm enjoying it along already.
  4. Nah, he has I think 5 or so planned or something? Third book came out a couple of months ago. And yes, he writes really quickly and he even updates his progress on his website and let's people know how his work is coming along on reddit. He's very active on discussion subreddits as well which I think is dope for a big author

    reddit.com/u/mistborn

    He works on this whilst writing and releasing 2-3 other books at the same time.

    The whole magic thing took me awhile to get used to but once you get in that's it. Let me know how you get on
  5. Haha, is the series complete? If it isn't please say that he writes quickly lol
    And you are right I've read the opening and the first chapter and I am loving it already, the world is awesome, the magic is awesome, I especially like how different it is than the standard magic stuff and the fight with the king was quality. I'm gonna read a couple more chapters tonight before I go to bed
  6. You definitely won't regret it. Make sure you go in blind to avoid spoilers and w/e. When you finish that first book, you'll be here telling me how sick it was. I envy you in the sense you can enjoy all 3 books without having to wait lool.
  7. Okay, I'm sold, I'll download it today and give it a read. True, your recommendations are always on point and that we have similar tastes, makes me think that I won't regret it and that I'm missing out on something great lol
  8. I got into GoT books for the exact same reason. I looked for something similar and found out about Stormlight archive - the first book came out in 2013. I don't want to say too much but it's exactly like GoT with the whole Houses, politics etc - but the main character is a young man from a lowly background who's drafted into an ongoing war. When I read the first book Kuro, I was like holy fck. Then the second one is even better man. Unlike GoT, Stormlight archive is more of an epic and every book finale the author delivers hard. The author and series are well loved online and on reddit (author interacts with fans and posts frequently) - he releases books really quickly too.

    I've recommended Stormlight to a lot of people, many non book readers too - every single person gets hooked. Kuro you know my recommendations don't disappoint and this is like the best thing I can recommend.
  9. yep, i can see winds of winter being released sometime this year, but with the pace that he writes and his age plus lifestyle, I cant see him finishing the final book.

    I haven't heard of it, though I cant really say that ill watch in the foreseeable future, i've got a lot of catching up to do already and I cant see my self watching a new show in the foreseeable future, that's unless its god-tier lol. right now i'm watching black mirror, then i've got a season of better call saul, than its HTGAWM, then suits, homeland, narcos, peaky blinders, vikings and the walking dead, plus there are some other shows that i want to watch like legion and taboo, so lots of **** to watch lol.

    I wouldn't say that i am, I read the A song of fire and ice series because i couldn't wait for the next season lol, not that I don't like reading, i did thoroughly enjoy the ones i have read, so i could be tempted to read the storm light archive series.
  10. Yeah it's pretty much a blockbuster now movie now. It's a shame this the only thing we'll get since the author is probably going to die before he completes the books.

    And yeah I watched Westworld. Great show, Anthony Hopkins elite tier actor. You heard of Ozarks?

    If you're into books by the way, I'd highly recommend that you read both the Stormlight Archive series and The Name of the Wind. Both series are like top 2-3 highest rated on goodreads. Stormlight Archive book 3 came out a couple of months ago - the series (in particular book 2) is like better than any show or book I've ever seen/read.
