Wishlist Wednesday #46

Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Dani over @Pen to Paper and is a great way of showing off the books that we are dying to get our hands on :)
The Rithmatist - Brandon Sanderson

 More than anything, Joel wants to be a Rithmatist. Chosen by the Master in a mysterious inception ceremony, Rithmatists have the power to infuse life into two-dimensional figures known as Chalklings. Rithmatists are humanity’s only defense against the Wild Chalklings — merciless creatures that leave mangled corpses in their wake. Having nearly overrun the territory of Nebrask, the Wild Chalklings now threaten all of the American Isles.

As the son of a lowly chalkmaker at Armedius Academy, Joel can only watch as Rithmatist students study the magical art that he would do anything to practice. Then students start disappearing — kidnapped from their rooms at night, leaving trails of blood. Assigned to help the professor who is investigating the crimes, Joel and his friend Melody find themselves on the trail of an unexpected discovery — one that will change Rithmatics — and their world — forever.

Bestselling author Brandon Sanderson brings his unique brand of epic storytelling to the teen audience with an engrossing tale of danger and suspense—the first of a series. With his trademark skills in world-building, Sanderson has created a magic system that is so inventive and detailed that that readers who appreciate games of strategy and tactics just may want to bring Rithmatics to life in our world.

I just realised that this is my first Wishlist Wednesday post of 2014. I really need to get back into blogging! Anyway, BOOKS. Books that I really really want. The Rithmatist being one of many, many books on my wishlist. I've enjoyed both Brandon Sanderson books that I've read so far (Steelheart, The Final Empire) and I've heard amazing things about this one. Sanderson just seems to write some unique magic systems and epic fantasy stories that I think he's definitely going to be one of my new favourite authors. I think I'll be pre-ordering this book soon for when it's released in paperback in the UK.


  1. Sanderson is super popular and my friend love his books, so I guess I should give him a try myself. I am curious about this one especially. :)
