1/22/18 Blog Update

Hi Everyone,

When starting this blog, I initially adopted the following system for rating books:

1 – Skip it

2 – Guilty Pleasure

3 – Recommended with Reservations

4 – Highly Recommended

5- Mandatory Reading


Now that the blog is closing in on its one-year anniversary, I’ve realized that there was too much overlap between the categories of “guilty pleasure” and “recommended with reservations.”

As such, I’ve re-worked the rating system by removing the “guilty pleasure” category, and folding its previous entrants into the revised “recommended with reservations” category. The revised system is as follows:

1- Skip It

2- Recommended with Reservations

3 – Highly Recommended

4- Mandatory Reading

Thanks,

Sam

December Hiatus

Hi Everyone,

I’ll be taking a short break from blog updates over the next few weeks, as I’ll be happily re-reading Brandon Sanderson’s initial two Stormlight volumes, and then finally launching into the recently published third book, Oathbringer.

Sure, I COULD just read a quick recap, but I’d rather draw out the process and derive as much enjoyment as possible. Still, that’s 3300+ pages, so even reading like it’s my job, it will be a few weeks before I emerge on the other end.

So please enjoy your December, and I’ll be back in a few weeks with reviews of Words of Radiance and Oathbringer!
