I'll be starting Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn trilogy today, assuming Amazon delivers my box set as planned.
I'm doing the r/52book challenge, so I'm starting out behind already. :/

Good luck!
I did a 50 book challenge last year - which I thought was going to be tough - and SOMEHOW I ended up reading 57.

The Mistborn trilogy is a great and quick read. You'll be caught up in no time.

Somehow missed out on this series in the past. The books seem relatively short (for fantasy) and the trilogy seems like one big continuous story, so I plan to go through the whole thing in the next couple of weeks.

Though I saw the movie, my mind is oddly blank of many details (the only thing I remember are the bears).

That's one of my favorite series. I wish I could read it again for the first time.

Turns out it won't be here til tomorrow, so I decided to just re-read 1984 while I wait. It'll be my first time reading it since senior year in 1997.

On to the last book next! Which is the nice thing about reading these series after they're finished ... not waiting months (if not years) to find out how cliffhangers get resolved.
