    A couple I have read – kudos. Station Eleven I started but just didn’t like it. The Wheel of Time series is on my BTR list. The Graveyard book sounds very interesting as does The Shadow of the Gods (the cover turns me off I don’t normally care for dragon stories). I am interested in you thoughts after the books are read.

      the shadow of the gods doesn’t have dragons in it for the most part. I do recommend giving it a try because it’s been one of my favorite books I’ve read this year
