I am a tattoo artist by trade so i find myself listening to my books a lot while drawing, but more so while commuting.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    A great read, and great narration, storyline was very detailed sometimes to a fault and gave you a feeling of part of the book. I would recommend it those interested in scifi and those who are not

    More than anything, Joel wants to be a Rithmatist. Chosen by the Master in a mysterious inception ceremony, Rithmatists have the power to infuse life into two-dimensional figures known as Chalklings. Rithmatists are humanity’s only defense against the Wild Chalklings - merciless creatures that leave mangled corpses in their wake. Having nearly overrun the territory of Nebrask, the Wild Chalklings now threaten all of the American Isles.

    I put off reading this for some reason and i shouldnt have. A great read in classic Brandon Sanderson format and an interesting way to create special powers and fights.

    Kyle Riggs is snatched by an alien spacecraft sometime after midnight. The ship is testing everyone it catches and murdering the weak. The good news is that Kyle keeps passing tests and staying alive. The bad news is the aliens who sent this ship are the nicest ones out there.

    Excellent read I give it a good recommendation. The storyline was very fluid for an extended timeline and a medium size book. I enjoyed how the author brought a new take on technology and alien encounters previously written about. Looking forward to the next book in the series and what the new aliens do.

    The conclusion of the Mistborn trilogy fulfills all the promise of the first two books. Revelations abound, connections rooted in early chapters of the series click into place, and surprises, as satisfying as they are stunning, blossom like fireworks to dazzle and delight. It all leads up to a finale unmatched for originality and audacity that will leave listeners shaking their heads in wonder, as if awaking from an amazing dream.

    There is not much to review here. If you have read books 1 and 2, book 3 takes it to the next level. This entire trilogy is my favorite read and I have listened to the entire series multiple times. These books are a must read.

    Three hundred years after the events of the Mistborn trilogy, Scadrial is now on the verge of modernity, with railroads to supplement the canals, electric lighting in the streets and the homes of the wealthy, and the first steel-framed skyscrapers racing for the clouds.Kelsier, Vin, Elend, Sazed, Spook, and the rest are now part of history—or religion. Yet the old magics of Allomancy and Feruchemy continue to play a role in this reborn world....

    Brandon has done it again in this series. This is an amazing read. The only let down of the book is that it wasn’t as long as his books in the series usually are. Brandon has really made a great transition from the original Mistborn Trilogy to a world hundreds of years after it took place. He did a fantastic job of showing advances in technology and civilization and incorporating allomantic and feruchemical powers into this new advanced world. This is a must read to any scifi enthusiast and can even be read as a stand alone without reading the first Trilogy, but there is no reason you shouldn’t. The original trilogy is amazing and by far my favorite books.

    I was not impressed with this book at all and had to almost force myself to finish it. Was definitely a let down after the first 2 books in this series. It starts to focus more on their everyday living and politics, instead of action. I finished it only because I liked the first 2 books so much I wanted to see what happened to the characters. This book would be difficult to get through as a stand alone read and feel that you should read the first 2 before attempting it.

    For the second book in this series I was curious on how the author was going to continue it going when she had already set up rules how the contestants for the games were chosen. I felt she made a great transition to a second Hunger Game and it kept me interested in the series. Although I did feel it wasn’t quite as good as the first book it was still entertaining and I would recommend it readers of all ages.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    The first book in this series sets up a great story line for the series. It had great flow throughout the book and a few twists to keep you on the edge of your seat. I was a little concerned that it was going to be written for younger readers, but feel that it was an excellent read for older readers as well. I recommended to my wife who also read it on her kindle and couldn’t put it down. Overall performance of this book was excellent reat entertainment

The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    Good read…With the zombie craze in full swing I found this book entertaining but a little redundant. It was a bit slow to start and then seemed to switch gears and even seemed like a different author had written the last half of the book, but it a good way, both halves were good. The ending took me by surprise it seemed to just end and I feel a little more time could have been taken in it, but it would have had to be considerably longer to continue at the pace he was going. All in all I was satisfied
