Warbreaker
Warbreaker - Brandon Sanderson,James Yaegashi An interesting listen and a book that held up very well throughout most of the story. I was not really enamored with the finish which the author was apparently undecided in whether this was the whole story or that there were going to be a series with further books.

Recommended for Sanderson fans.

Warbreaker - Brandon Sanderson Interesting idea using colour and breath as a basis for magic, just felt a little too much like concept over story.

In a world where some people return as better forms of themselves to be able to grant one healing, many use this second chance, where they are treated as gods to indulge themselves, until one day, almost like a compulsion they use this power. Above them is the God King, who is to marry, Vivienna from another kingdom is promised to him , she has been groomed for this from birth. Her father sends the unprepared Siri, this will change the world.

Somewhat predictable, entertaining though.

Cover Crush: Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson
Cover Crush is a feature originally thought up by Erin at Flashlight Commentary.  Every Thursday, she publishes a post featuring a book jacket/book cover that she really likes with a short commentary about it.  I discovered this weekly feature via It's a Mad Mad World  and decided to join in the fun!
 
Judge a book by it's cover?  Absolutely!

This book has been hovering in my sidebars for almost every bookish (or other) website I've been browsing the past week.  It's not like I haven't seen the cover before--and I DO like it a lot.  It's very eye-catching!

But I guess while I've been doing a deliberate search through my Goodreads shelves to find a suitable cover crush, this one just kind of popped right up.  I found my eyes straying towards it every time it showed in an ad or a recommended read or something on the side, as a smaller thumbnail.

And I thought to myself, "This is most certainly a book I would have picked up based on the cover art alone." Well, actually my first thought had been, "Hmm... pretty."  The former thought is a bit more refined for blogging purposes.

Anyway, being that it is also a book written by Brandon Sanderson is also a big check in the plus column.  This only means that I should probably be picking up this book sometime soon for all of the above reasons.

Again, it's a very eye-catching cover.  I'd actually like to see the entire illustration, sans author name and book title, because that stuff just seems to be in the way.

Review: Warbreaker
Warbreaker - Brandon Sanderson

Amazing. I was only 6% into the book when I started raving to my boyfriend about how good it was. Nothing had really even happened at the time yet I knew this book was going to be phenomenal. I must've been convincing since he started it yesterday.

I have come to the conclusion (like many others) that Brandon Sanderson is a superb author. This is my 5th book by him and its probably my favorite. I actually liked it better than Mistborn: The Final Empire (blasphemy, I know). Sanderson's books are unique in that the magic system and world are completely unique. And his magic systems are so imaginative and fully thought out. In Warbreaker the magic system seems so strange in the beginning but eventually it seems like second nature. As you delve into the story its like you develop this inherent knowledge of the magic system.

This was the perfect fantasy book for me; strong female leads, political intrigue, espionage, conspiracy, war, and even a little romance. I'm not big on romance but when it isn't shoved down your throat and is so seamless that without it the story wouldn't work - I love it!

I was emotionally invested in this story and ALL the characters. I can't even choose which one was my favorite. They were all amazing - Vivenna, Siri, Vasher, Lightsong, Denth...

This and The Lies of Locke Lamora are my 2 favorite reads on 2014 (so far). This year has been filled with a bunch of meh books...so I'm hoping this 5* streak continues
