Currently reading: Firefight by Brandon Sanderson.


From the #1 “New York Times” bestselling author of Words of Radiance coauthor of Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series, and creator of the internationally bestselling Mistborn Trilogy, Brandon Sanderson presents the second book in the Reckoners series: Firefight, the sequel to the #1 bestseller Steelheart.

They told David it was impossible–that even the Reckoners had never killed a High Epic. Yet, Steelheart–invincible, immortal, unconquerable–is dead. And he died by David’s hand.

Eliminating Steelheart was supposed to make life more simple. Instead, it only made David realize he has questions. Big ones. And there’s no one in Newcago who can give him the answers he needs.

Babylon Restored, the old borough of Manhattan, has possibilities, though. Ruled by the mysterious High Epic, Regalia, David is sure Babylon Restored will lead him to what he needs to find. And while entering another city oppressed by a High Epic despot is a gamble, David’s willing to risk it. Because killing Steelheart left a hole in David’s heart. A hole where his thirst for vengeance once lived. Somehow, he filled that hole with another Epic–Firefight. And he’s willing to go on a quest darker, and more dangerous even, than the fight against Steelheart to find her, and to get his answers.


I’ve started 2015 on a bit of a reading slump. My past two books took me ages to finish and I’ve been having trouble working my way through my most recent selection despite its interesting premise.

So, what’s a reader supposed to do when he can’t seem to read? Turn to Brandon Sanderson, of course. BSand, for those of you who don’t know, is one of my favourite writers and I’ve enjoyed every single one of his long novels.

The Reckoners might not be my favourite of his catalog but I’m pretty confident that it’ll still make for excellent reading, especially considering I actually read his mini bridging story and still have the details semi-fresh in my head this time.

Dear reader, what book are you reading now? What do you do when you get into a reading slump?
