I grew up with a love of the written word. Writing is an art just like any other creative endeavor. Unlike painting with pastels, my words are my medium.

The Rithmatist

The Rithmatist - Brandon Sanderson Why in the world have I not yet read any of Brandon Sanderson's books before now?!?!?!?!? I absolutely adored "The Rithmatists." The characters were engaging and I loved the dueling scenes. Some of the theory behind Rithmatics was a bit confusing at times, but the illustrations definitely helped. My mind is blown at the sheer creativity contained within this book. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series!!!!!!!
