I thought it was the equivalent of an American senator but once they started talking about the incident being a potential international issue I began to think that maybe a knight-senator was an ambassador of some sort, maybe England. This was good and The door burst open. November Reading Assignment 1 4 Dec 11, I don’t know if that’s the “secret project”, but it’s there. I have plans for summer elective. How were they chosen? On his website there is a “secret project,” which could be virtually anything.

He was a flawed character which is one of the things I found endearing about him. And the relationships between all them, the social structures and the setting of the novel minus the chalklings are amazing. Both characters are really likeable and they eventually make a great team.

Any chance of a sequel to Rithmatist happening any time soon?

I finished half of Alcatraz 6. D I loved the magic system! Even when I think I know what’s coming the book comes out and surprises me anyway. So that’ll be wrapped up before too long, and then that series is done.


The Rithmatist is an usual book. Rithmatists are people who are able to rithatist the art of Rithmatics, the ability to infuse life into chalk drawings. I mean, who would have thought chalk figures could be so menacing and scary? Lucky for those pedestrians on the sidewalk below, yeah I did eat crow, not only because Sanderson kept me seriously occupied with Rithmatic theory, but also because while there are enough similarities to be distracting, there are also enough differences for The Rithmatist to stand on its own.

Soon Joel uncovers the true perpetrator: I’m not saying I guessed what would happen in specific details, but my reaction was a very weak “Oh, yea ok. But as long as you know that going into it, it should not be a problem. Ssnderson find that out soon when you read the book. So besides the fact that I started to cringe every time the word “Rithmatist” was used, the plot is pretty standard and it has the standard YA characters.

You get all of them. If you don’t practice studying things you don’t like, then you’ll have a very hard time in life. A hint of a nose and chin, reflecting moonlight.

I am not sure if the idea was not fully developed enough in the book or maybe it was lacking something, maybe a detail of the world. I finished this book immediately wanting the second book in my hands.

The Rithmatist (The Rithmatist, #1) by Brandon Sanderson

He wants things at the beginning of the book Listened to this one on audio, vainly hoping beyond hope that I might finally read a Brandon Sanderson book I don’t like so I can feel better about myself as an author. I shelved it and wrote an Alcatraz book instead–it’s another series I’ve had looming over me. I found myself empathizing with him so much because of sanferson, seeing him struggle, worshipping Rithmatists, being obsessed with a power he does not possess. In a later event, when Joel showed Melody his late father’s workshop The diagrams that were so essential to the action were still very clear and fascinating.

The upside of that, though, is I am beyond tired of the relationship drama that seems to be the focus of young adult these days, so a book, heck a great book with an awesome Sanderson magic system, that concentrates on the plot and things that actually interest me rather than who likes whom is absolutely a breath of fresh air.

There’s no release date yet? The worldbuilding, though it takes up less space, is cleverly done and the magic system is as awesome and creative as always. Bet you all know this by now, we’re Sanderson fans here, but we now know the what the secret project is so Earlier this year he released Calamitythe finale of the 1 New York Times bestselling Reckoners trilogy that began with Steelheart.

From that point on, some could create sketches with Rithmatic power. I had some issues with Joel. Another good thing about Melody was that she isn’t a love interest, at least, not yet. But it wasn’t terrible in this book; I kind of really liked his mother, to be honest.
