“DO NOT WAKE ME UP!”

On 6th August 2014, at 1 PM, my two favourite pastimes are going to be at one place.

Brandon Sanderson + Waterstones = Bliss.

The tour is to promote and sign copies of, Words of Radiance: The Stormlight Archive Book Two, Brandon Sanderson will be going to various locations across the UK. Most importantly, he will be coming to Leeds, which is my local bookstore.

Words of Radiance is a sequel to the stunningly epic The Way of Kings, which was so epic that it had to split into Part One and Part Two. That was the main reason that I hadn’t picked up Words of Radiance yet, seeing that the hardback book resembled a brick (over a 1000 pages!).

That doesn’t matter! I will pick up the brick at the store, and get it signed, and also stare at my favourite author like a total creep. I’m allowed to do that (I think).

I actually had the opportunity to see Brandon Sanderson in Manchester when the initial UK tour for The Way of Kings was on, IF I skipped a lecture at Uni and travelled down. I ended up not skipping that lecture, and really regretted it. This time, I suppose I shall fangirl twice as much.

Brandon Sanderson will be visiting London, Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, and Nottingham. See the rest of the UK dates here.

 

News: Earn Double Points at Waterstones

“Do I have enough books in my life? …No, not nearly enough.”

Waterstones is having a double-points event in-store and online this weekend. It starts on Friday, 25th May, until Sunday, 27th May.

Even though I have many books to read, and recently acquired a lot more, I still want to buy a few titles.
