Hello, I'm excited to be here and meet everyone!

I'm a first time reader for Wheel of Time and am currently about 130 pages into book four. The show drew my interest into reading the books and after reading the first I was hooked and invested in the character's adventures and lives. My absolute top favorite character thus far is Moiraine but I really like several of the others too. I really like all the Aiel we've met so far and want to learn more about them.

I loves so many books and two of my favorite recent authors I've come to enjoy are V.E. Scwhab and Samantha Shannon. V.E. Schwab's Shades of Magic trilogy are some of my favorite books I've ever read. It's universe and concept of magic are very interesting. Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon might just be my favorite book of all time. It's so beautifully written and with such a rich world and characters. Her Bone Season series is also fantastic!

I also really like reading about history and tend to be drawn towards medical history. It just really fascinates me how they used to do things and the way it evolved over time. Fashion History is another subject I love learning about.

Aside from reading I also like photography, collecting rocks and minerals, doing jigsaw puzzles, going for walks

I loved the second book! You'll have a great time reading it. :) I like what I've seen so far in being here for it being such a short time thus far

I can’t wait to hear what you thought of it when you’re done! Book four was a very interesting one for me, I hear it’s a lot of peoples favorite though. :pleased-1:
It's definitely interesting so far and I wasn't expecting so much action right at the start. I can't wait to see where it goes from here. I've heard the fourth book does go more into the Aiel

Thank you! Oh gosh, that's so hard to pick because I have so many I love in it. Overall I'd say all my agates are my favorites. They're so pretty to look at and come in such a wide variety. It's the one I collect the most of. My silica carbide is another favorite because it's the first bigger piece I ever bought and it has so many colors in it

Welcome to Tar Valon, Blythe!! It’s lovely to have your here! :yes

I love V.E. Schwab and Samantha Shannon!! I actually have a signed poster of Priory though I still haven’t read it yet. :look:

I love reading about history too!! What’s your favorite time period? And if you like medical and history, you might like the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon.

Welcome to Tar Valon! I am SO EXCITED that you're getting to read The Shadow Rising for the first time--it's truly a classic. And I'm definitely interested to hear more about your rocks and minerals!
