Regent

So I'm currently on a Mistborn era 1 reread, but this time I dragged my younger sister along with me

*muffled excited noises*

Just finished reading the prologue out loud and this was her reaction:

Me: And that's the prologue!

Her: Wait...that was just the prologue??

Me: Yeah

Her: That's pretty long, not gonna lie

Me: 15 pages? Not really

Her: I'm just not used to it being that long

Me: I guess so

She actually started Mistborn a couple of months ago but dropped it because she found it overwhelming. Considering that she's younger than the average reader, though, I think she actually did quite well (she got to the part of Vin's allomancy lessons, but she can't remember much of it, sadly). Maybe this time she'll actually get around to finishing it now that I'm here to explain and clarify stuff. 

(I also told her there's no pressure on finishing quickly because, well, it's Mistborn)

I also asked her what she thinks of it and she said it seems pretty interesting so I guess that's a good start.

UPDATE: She finished it. She really enjoyed it (though she teared up at the ending lol). "Probably one of the best fantasy books I've read so far," she said.

Already hopping on to era 2!

She actually finished TFE and is currently on WoA! She said she enjoyed FE, and most of her thoughts are pretty positive about it...
