This book had a lot of Misborn references and did a good job updating the world. The plot wasn't as big as the previous series, but the characters are a lot of fun. Wayne is funny.

This is the first book of a new graphic novel series by Brandon Sanderson. The artwork is phenomenal It is rich and detailed. This volume is really the introduction of the characters, the worlds and the background of the story.

Purposely "uncomfortable" to read. This is a brilliantly written satire about white privilege, white fragility, and cultural appropriation.

High fantastic adventure story. Protagonist is a teenage girl. Character development is marginal. The author has atendancey to lapse into long passages of exposition making the book hard to read. These chunks of description could have been replaced with the characters experiencing the settings. This would also help with character development. The story was fairly predictable and the motivations of the characters doesn't always make sense. I am not sure if I will continue this series. My expectations may be unreasonably elevated sine I have just been reading Brendan Sanderson, Robert Jordan and Leigh Bardugo.

Like, Literally, Dude

If you're a proscriptive grammarist, stay clear of this book. But if you are curious about how we got to where we are in language and are particularly interested in the evolution of how we speak nowadays, this is a great book for you. The author looks at common verbal tics that are so annoying to so many, and shows that most of these have been centuries in the making. Are you wondering how we got to where we are with the word literally? Do you wonder about how long ago people started using like in all the different ways that it is used today? Do um and uh serve an important role in communication? When did we start using the singular they and is it actually unusual? I found this book to be an enlightening experience. My only criticism would be that it tends to be a bit redundant and somewhat didactic about certain topics and is not shy about flogging them to death. Overall this is an interesting and educational read.
