After a lot of thought, I've decided to take a break from blogging for the foreseeable future. With my little C creeping its way back into my life and possible long term treatment now, I need to take a couple of things off my plate for the time being, and the blog is going to be one of those things. As it is, it felt like it was becoming more of a chore than anything else. I need my reading time to be more enjoyable right now, more of the escape that I really need, and what I don't need is the little voice in the back of my head telling me how many reviews I'm behind and trying to come up with what I need to say about the book.

I simply want to read.

I'll more than likely occasionally post on here what I've been reading, and if there is something that really blows my mind, I'll probably have more to say about it and may write up a proper post, but for right now, things are going to be very quiet around here.

As always, happy reading!

I will continue to blog according to my health and ability, and connecting my posts thru Goodreads, so please be patient if things get quiet around here again this year.

I am happy to report that my bone marrow transplant was a success and that I'm feeling more like myself everyday. That said, I'm going to try to start blogging a little more frequently, but please bare with me as I still continue to recover.

Book description:
Brandon Sanderson, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Words of Radiance, coauthor of Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time series, and creator of the internationally bestselling Mistborn trilogy, presents Mitosis, a short story set in the action-packed world of Steelheart and Firefight: the Reckoners series, exclusively available in the digital format. Epics still plague Newcago, but David and the Reckoners have vowed to fight back. Catch all the action before, Calamity, the exciting sequel to Firefight, hits shelves in 2016..

A quick audio short that bridges Steelheart to Firefight (but is not necessary to jump right into Firefight), Mitosis deals with how the Reckoners are adjusting the city of Newcago to be free of the rule of Steelheart. It sets up in more detail how they have tried to keep things are much the same as they were before, but for the better of the citizens instead of for the sole purpose of making Steelheart's rule absolute. Of course, what's a Reckoner story without at least one Epic, and here we are introduced to Mitosis, who can split himself into as many clones as he needs. He has come to Newcago to take down David and the Reckoners so that he can take rule of Newcago, but naturally, this doesn't actually en too well for him.

Again, a decent enough story, but not something that is necessary to listen to between Steelheart and Firefight.
