Series Review: The Paper Gods Series by Amanda Sun

Yet another series review! I actually read this series in November, reviewed the first two, but never made it to reviewing the third one. Well, better late than never is my opinion!

The series I'm reviewing today is Amanda Sun's Paper Gods series!

Review: Shadows of Self by Brandon Sanderson

Book: Shadows of Self
Author: Brandon Sanderson
Series: Wax and Wayne #2 (Mistborn #5)
Genre: Fantasy
Publisher: Tor Fantasy
Pages: 383
Published: October 6th, 2015



Shadows of Self shows Mistborn’s society evolving as technology and magic mix, the economy grows, democracy contends with corruption, and religion becomes a growing cultural force, with four faiths competing for converts.

This bustling, optimistic, but still shaky society now faces its first instance of terrorism, crimes intended to stir up labor strife and religious conflict. Wax and Wayne, assisted by the lovely, brilliant Marasi, must unravel the conspiracy before civil strife stops Scadrial’s progress in its tracks.

Shadows of Self will give fans of The Alloy of Law everything they’ve been hoping for and, this being a Brandon Sanderson book, more, much more.

Happy 2018 + Updates!

Happy (belated) New Year, everyone!!!







Okay, okay, I know what you're all wondering: what hole did I just crawl out of / where the heck have I been / just how many more vanishing acts am I going to be pulling / why have most of my posts lately been mostly apologizing for my disappearances?

Genre: YA fantasy
Publisher: G. P. Putnam's Sons
Pages: 416
Release: April 26th, 2016



In a land on the brink of war, Shahrzad is forced from the arms of her beloved husband, the Caliph of Khorasan. She once thought Khalid a monster—a merciless killer of wives, responsible for immeasurable heartache and pain—but as she unraveled his secrets, she found instead an extraordinary man and a love she could not deny. Still, a curse threatens to keep Shazi and Khalid apart forever.

Now she’s reunited with her family, who have found refuge in the desert, where a deadly force is gathering against Khalid—a force set on destroying his empire and commanded by Shazi’s spurned childhood sweetheart. Trapped between loyalties to those she loves, the only thing Shazi can do is act. Using the burgeoning magic within her as a guide, she strikes out on her own to end both this terrible curse and the brewing war once and for all. But to do it, she must evade enemies of her own to stay alive.

The saga that began with The Wrath and the Dawn takes its final turn as Shahrzad risks everything to find her way back to her one true love again.
