I finished Arcanum Unbounded and Sounding the Seasons both this morning.
Neither of these are on my official list of books to read in 2022.
That figures, because I like to read as the wind blows, going wheresoever the Spirit leadeth.
But I also want to try to be more strategic this year and get to some of those great books I keep meaning to read.
But my husband and oldest daughter insisted I read Arcanum Unbounded as soon as I finished The Silmarillion last week.
We all enjoy reading Sanderson's books and discussing his Cosmere as a family, and my loved ones were growing tired of trying to not to spoil the details in this book for me, so I agreed to read it.
It was delightful and I am enchanted.
It makes me want to read even more of the books in the Cosmere I wasn't planning to read before.
And as soon as I finished that book, I looked up "Malcolm Guite" on Kindle, since I want to focus on his books this year, and I have several titles I know I want to read.
But then I saw the title Sounding the Seasons and though it isn't on my official list, it was the most compelling title for some reason, so I chose to start there.
I am so glad I did.
I read the book in one sitting during the early hours of this morning.
His poem "O Sapienta" is definitely a new favorite, and I know I will read this book through again soon.
