I'm moving this to the Cosmere Discussion board because I expect spoilers to be very plausible.

Here's a few bad descriptions:

Elantris - there's this guy. He dies, his death sucks, and then he dies.

Mistborn - Wealthy politician fails to adjust for discontent among lower class populace.

Way of Kings - Guy gets thrown into a team of misfits, classic underdog sports style. The team is too good at catching the "ball" so with the new leader guy's help, they get better at not catching the "ball". Also, a girl tries to steal another girl's bracelet. Older man deals with family issues and has some beef with an old drinking buddy. And in a dramatic reveal, we find out that an elderly man has a cool rock.

 

Stormlight - You have to breath just right and the color of your power can change what you can do sometimes.

BioChromatic Breaths - Lets you infuse objects and people with power. To get more powerful you have to find the right words to say. Get really good and you can get a powerful talking sword buddy.

Hemalurgy: "So, you're saying all I need to do to use telekinesis is to take one of my grandma's knitting needles over there, impale that guy over there with it, then stab myself through the eye, and it'll somehow work?! And you think I'm crazy?!"
