I was very excited to see a tweet by Brandon Sanderson earlier this week, announcing that he has completed a first draft of Words of Radiance, the second in his planned ten book epic series, The Stormlight Archive. I loved The Way of Kings, the first book in the series, and I can’t wait to read more about the amazing world Sanderson has created.
This week I’ve been Waiting On … Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano. I also helped with the cover reveal for Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout, and the Australian blog tour for Belladonna by Fiona Paul stopped by, where Fiona revealed 5 things we didn’t know about her. I posted up a virtual bookshelf tour as well — head on over to see my bookshelves and how they are arranged.
