  1. I had loved Watership down when I was younger, I remember, but when I watched the preview on Netflix I was like, wow, this looks bad! Haha. I'm always looking for good books for my 10 year old though.
  2. Ever hear of a book called Watership Down? It's like the same thing but with rabbits! They actually just started a series or movie on Netflix about it. Haven't watched it yet though and haven't read the book in a decade at least. All I can picture is the cast of Cats gone feral and turned into Warrior Cats! I'm intrigued... I'll have to add it to my read list on Goodreads.
  3. Stormlight 4 for me too. I'm still not finished with Skyward but will be before Starsights release.
  4. Popped on Brandon's site to double check the title of the second Skyward book. Was pleasantly surprised to see the status bar update! So exciting! Which book are you guys most excited for??
  5. We just started listening to Reckoners on Audible together. He said it was a good choice to fill the void until Starsight comes out! What's Warriors? I don't think I've heard of that one.
  6. That's what's great about Brandon Sanderson. It's pretty much for all ages!! I know he'll eventually read the SA, Mistborn and all the rest when he's a little older. He's already shown interest in the Kaladin and Syl books, as he likes to call them, when I'm listening to them on Alexa or in the car. It's the greatest molding young minds into miniature nerds with only a few books!
  7. No spoilers please! I'm halfway through Skyward myself because I let my 10 year old son read it before me and I think that was a good decision! I'm not even done with it but I think we can all relate to the last line of the the letter! Sorry about the format of the first pic. Couldn't figure out how to rotate it.
  8. @Invocation I'm still not convinced that it was the storm and not the spren/non spren. Since Dalinar gave it a rude gesture it makes me think he saw the thing throw the boulder.
  9. Welcome! As a fairly new Sanderfan myself I find that searching on the Coppermind is the best way to find answers you're looking for. The arcanum is another great place to get direct quotes about things from the man himself! Otherwise just checkout different post on the Shard, just beware of spoilers! What's your favorite book that you've read so far? Who's your favorite character?
  10. This is an interesting point because with the Dalinar flashback we know the initial storm wall had already passed when he went out into the storm. This leads me to believe that the giant glowing figure is the one who threw the boulder at him.
  11. These WoB contradict themselves a bit... My first thought was it was a manifestation of the storm father. I pictured him going for a leisurely stroll with Cultivation! Well, whatever they may be, stormstriders are a pretty cool name and I think we might all be surprised in the end!
  12. In both instances we've quoted above they always refer to them as figures and never question it might be a huge spren....
  13. I'm still not convinced it's a spren. Would a spren be able to manipulate the physical realm enough to throw a boulder? Even if it is a huge one, I wouldn't think size would effect it that much.
  14. When I heard this excerpt I pictured 2 giant two legged creatures lumbering along through the highstorm. Thanks for all the WoB. I guess searching highstorm+glowing figures isn't specific enough, lol. None of the WoB mention spren..... I think they're something we haven't really come across yet, except for excerpts like this. Or they're something we've come across but know by a different name... Edited to add: I know, that's such a specific theory! I'm not great with theories!
  15. @Quantus I don't know... they're depicted as walking on 2 legs and a chasmfiend has a lot more than 2 legs and would either be moving much faster or just being blown around in the storm. Edited to add: The chapter title is in the phrase as well....
