Great book! Set in a world where an event called Calamity has gifted some humans with super-human abilities, but instead of the traditional “some are heroes & some are villains” scenario, all are horrible monstrous people that have pretty much enslaved ordinary humans, but there is one group willing to fight back, the Reckoners. Brandon Sanderson's world building is amazing, the amount of detail he puts into every little thing just makes for a great book reading experience.

JJ Heller is a very little known Christian singer/songwriter out of Nashville, but she is amazing. She has a soothing voice with powerful lyrics that speak right to you heart. This whole album is amazing & puts a smile on my face no matter what mood I might be in, but “Not Mine Anyway” is one I could put on repeat and listen to for hours.
