The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): The Frugal Wizard's Handbook for Surviving Medieval England by Brandon Sanderson



On Friday's I take part in two weekly link ups - The Friday 56, hosted by Freda's Voice, and Book Beginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader.  For The Friday 56, you choose a book, a book you have just finished, a book you are about to start, your current read, and share a line or a few lines that grab you (but don't spoil anything) from page 56 or 56% of the way through the ebook. Post it and share your post's url on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post. As for Book Beginnings, you share the first sentence or so and your initial thoughts, impressions, or whatever else it inspires, and then link up your post's url with Rose City Reader. 

Happy Friday everyone!  This week I'm spotlighting one of my Trope-ical Readathon - Team Fantasy books books, The Frugal Wizard's Handbook for Surviving Medieval England by Brandon Sanderson.  I don't know about you, but this just sounds like a lot of fun.


I came alert, fists raised, an electric jolt of adrenaline surging through me.



Your dimension will have an island of Great Britain populated by a society of humans who work steel, but have not yet discovered gunpowder.  They will have a functional society and culture that roughly equates to the Late Classical, Early Medieval, or Late Medieval (pre-gunpowder) Earth time period.

Have you read this book?  Are you participating in this challenge?  As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!


  1. I've heard a lot of mixed reviews on this book. I haven't read it (or any Sanderson at all, actually...) but it sounds like a fun one!

    1. It was fun, but I see where those reviews are coming from.

  2. I think I know the author but what else has he written? A look over his books doesn't reveal a known book to me. Does he/Did he write YA?

  3. This sounds like a lot of fun!! Happy weekend!

  4. This does sound like fun, I'm curious to hear more about it😁
