how the fuck did someone actually come up with 3 books like this series and then went “yup! gonna write it now! :)” as if this wasn’t the wildest story i’ve ever read.
SO well thought and planned down to every detail. i’m terrified, i’ve had so much fun, and the ending wrecked me, then healed me, WOW truly.

rating would be a 4.5? i think? content wise it’s a 4.75 but i’ve had a weird reading experience since it took me FIFTEEN DAYS so that made my overall enjoyment less enjoyable.

WHAT THE HELL IS IT WITH THIS SERIES??? probably my favorite installment so far, the humor in these books and every dynamic is just so so so good, can’t get enough of it. 

definitely more plot-focused than the previous novels and that worked just great, i loved everything that happened in here. the mysterious magical elements and the characters are always SO amazing and it’s only getting better. i’m not ready for the next book to be the last one tho.

oh this book was WILD. i truly enjoy every magical thing in this book and damn me i like these characters A LOT. Ronan’s narration was great, i’m so glad this book focused a lot on him!!

main reason why i enjoyed this slightly less than book one is probably because it was set in the summer (i personally am not a fan of summer) therefore it lacked that “private school vibe” which i loooved.

really can’t describe this book but i had the best time. the atmosphere is so intense and the characters are truly amazing; the last 10% of the book left me a little ??? so that’s that, really loved it tho.

i will admit i wasn’t the biggest fan of book one so i’m being 100% serious when i say i wasn’t expecting to enjoy this one as much as i did. 

fantastic sequel, the themes in here were much more interesting to me than those of book one (probably why i liked it better) and i could definitely tell Sanderson’s writing got much better here, especially when it comes to writing his characters, even if i do wish we got to see more of some characters who were basically neglected (Clubs, DOX???). 

i love love love the politics and the whole mystery revolving around the mists and the well of ascension was really engaging, this world is so so interesting. and that ENDING. cannot wait to read the sequel!!
