Way of Kings Read Along (Chapters 4- 8)

Hello once again, my fellow Readalongees. I hope that by now you have managed to secure a copy of Brandon Sanderson’s Way of Kings  (still just £1.99 as an ebook until the 3rd March) and that you’re managing to keep up with us as we move into the second week of this readalong.

Happy Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Thursday!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who celebrates, whether Americans, expats or people who love to join in on the 4th Thursday in November. Thanksgiving is the one day of the year when I’m truly homesick. Living in London for seven years, I’ve learned to do without fireworks on Independence Day, but making due without pumpkin pie and my grandmother’s delicious secret stuffing (which she makes in the dead of night to make so that none of us can write down the recipe!) and mashed potatoes (the lumpy bits are made of love) is far more difficult.
