Only about 60 pages in, but it's a wonderful read so far. I'm developing a crush on Carrie all over again.

Finished:



I actually work with these cells, so this has been on my "to-read" list for some time.

I won't finish my next book for some time because it's a 1000+ page monster:



I loved Sanderson's Mistborn trilogy (the only thing of his that I've read), so my hopes are high. I hope this series is like that one where each book is somewhat stand-alone (since wikipedia says this planned as a 10-book series, and only three have been published so far). Though unlike other fantasy authors (Martin, Rothfuss), Sanderson seems like the sort to treat his readers reasonably when it comes to a series.

Finished. Great world-building and I enjoy Sanderson's writing. But the pacing was absolutely glacial compared to Mistborn. And not only did this book not tell a complete story, by the end it seemed like it just barely got started.
