This set has been recommended by so many people that I had to go out and get it! They are pretty if nothing else. I don‘t normally buy brand new books, and almost never hard backs. Hope it was the right set to splurge in

I got this book as part of a book swap and IT. iS. EXCELLENT!! Holy.dhit this book was a wild ride from beginning to end and I can't wait to read the second installment. Absolutely a fun ride with a fabulous cast of Characters. Magnificent. So glad I finally read some Brandon Sanderson he is just spectacular.

In my quest to find a great series to tackle on audio..the Skyward series by Brandon Sanderson kept coming up as a recommendation. Only on chapter 16, but I'm really liking this!
Eta: final review- 4 stars
I'll be using my monthly audible credits towards the next two books. This was a fun listen.

Well I love every Sanderson book I‘ve read and this is no exception. Really engaging throughout and the last chunk of the book had me on my toes with all the excimer going on. I could definately see this getting turned into a movie one day. Which I would watch on a heartbeat.

Just like in real life, animal companions can add a lot of joy to a story. And recently, I‘ve read a lot of stories with animals that I just love. And obviously DoomSlug from Skyward is one of them.

The story wouldn‘t be the same without her. And since she‘s my favorite my husband spoiled me with a DoomSlug plush for my birthday.

Are you a fan of animal companions? Do you have a favorite?

This was so good! A YA Sci-fi epic that feels like a mix of Top Gun and Star Wars. After needing to take a break from YA that was all seeming the same, it is great to find some great YA books again. I look forward to continuing this series. 5⭐️

MC starts flying school to show everyone that her family is better than their reputation. She makes friends and enemies and unusual allies.

Just finished another great Brandon Sanderson, my #DoubleSpin for this month and I loved it. First in a 3 book series, looking forward to next ones.

Also finished a couple more books started in July, both great: The Midnight Library by Matt Haig and Leonard Cohen's Book of Longing.
All of them picks.

And since I didn't post my #BookSpinBingo card yet, here it is now.

As always, thank you @TheAromaOfBooks!

claudiuo I have to post at least one quote from The Book of Longing by Leonard Cohen whom I love a lot, for his poetry and music:
“Only one thing made him happy and now that it was gone everything made him happy.”

Wow! This one is the best SF book I‘ve read in several years! Starts off a little slow, but then you can‘t put it down. Stayed up way too late finishing it last night so I will probably need extra coffee to get through the work day. 😏 If you‘re a fan of SF I highly recommend. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

As I‘ve said a million times, sci-fi isn‘t usually my thing. But lately I‘ve been in a rut. I wanted something different so I gave Skyward a try. I‘m glad I did. I really enjoyed it!

Also, I‘d love to know your favorite sci-fi books. I‘m on the hunt for more. Let me know in the comments!

SilverShanica Try Hench by Natalie Zina Walschots for a not what you‘d expect superhero sci-fi, and The Midnight Bargain by CL Polk for a regency romance inspired fantasy with strong female protagonists and magic. (edited) 2y

Wow. Just wow. This book was absolutely amazing. Once I got to the last 100 pages, I thought I had it figured out just to find out I had nothing figured out at all. By far one of my favorite books of this year. This was my very first Brandon Sanderson book and I was definitely not disappointed.

I haven‘t read a Sci Fi book since I was in high school, and I think the last Sci Fi Series I Read was The Lunar Chronicles (💙💙). With that being said, it‘s been a hot minute since I have read anything from this genre. I couldn‘t have picked a more perfect re-introduction into Sci Fi than this one! 🚀 Thoroughly engaging, and full of details that made the scenes and atmosphere feel real. Held my attention from the very beginning.

This started with Becky Chambers/Wayfarers vibes (certain aspects of premise/world building style are similar) which was great! Then came an extreme eye rolling moment of almost DNF-worthy teenage wish fulfilment (if you've read it you'll know) which was not so great. BUT THEN ... total immersion & compulsive page turning & not 1 but 2 twists *gasp* & knuckle biting action & gotta buy the next one & WOW, that was a lot of fun!

Only two books this month but both of them were pretty epic! I honestly can't tell which one is better. They are both so different, both have strong characters yet incomparable in terms of the severity of the story. I strongly recommend both!

Bookish_Viking Skyward is excellent, as are the rest of Sanderson‘s books. 2y

I've had so much fun reading this book; I nearly swallowed it whole. I enjoyed getting to know the main character, she was funny and witty, determined and strong. The world is slowly introduced and yet the book never gets boring. I loved the side characters and don't even get me started on M-Bot. He made the book so much better! And of course I have to mention Jerkface..

Spin wants to become a pilot like her father, who was branded a traitor, and fight against the aliens that attack her world. That plot has been written a thousand times before, but this book has great world building and unique details like Doomslug and M-Bot. I couldn't put it down because I needed to know why it was all happening. It's the first one in a series but thankfully it doesn't end on a cliffhanger and we get answers.

“Humans have free will. Free will is the ability to make irrational decisions—to act against stimuli. That makes it impossible for a rational AI to ever fully anticipate humans, for even if I had perfect understanding of your inputs, you could still do something completely unpredictable. It means you‘re weird,” M-Bot added.
“Uh…,” I said.
“Don‘t worry. I like you anyway.”

What a ride! Lately my depression has been kicking my butt and everything is uninteresting and cannot hold my attention. But, this book finally held my attention! I could not put it down. It was fun and made my heart race with me on the edge of my seat. I‘m glad I took a risk with this since I didn‘t like Mistborn. This is a must read!

Linsy I‘m so glad you liked it!! I‘ve been there with depression. This one completely drew me in as well, and I just finished the second one! Would definitely recommend 💜💜💜 3y
The_Heeler_Booklife @Linsy depression is the worst and the sucky thing is I‘m bipolar and the med I‘m on helps my high points, but isn‘t helping the depression. So, need to get that worked on. But, I devoured a 500 page book in 2 1/2 days. Success! I already started book 2 since I need more of the story. I heard book 3 is delayed until 2021. :/ 3y
Linsy @The_Heeler_Booklife @The_Heeler_Booklife I‘m so sorry! My husband is bipolar as well and last year his meds did absolutely nothing to help with the lows. I‘m so sorry. I know it was super hard for him. That‘s the hardest thing about finding a new series, right??! I would also recommend Warbreaker, although it is very different from Skyward. It‘s more in line with his normal fantasy, but it pulled me in faster than Mistborn. Hang in there! 💕 3y

The_Heeler_Booklife @Linsy thanks for the recommendation. I will check it out in the new year. :) And finding a med to help with the lows is so hard. Fingers crossed in a week from now I can get a med for it or something. I‘m reading Starsight now and super good. 3y
Linsy @The_Heeler_Booklife I‘m so glad you have a book to see you through! And good luck!!! It seriously is so hard to figure out the right meds. 3y
The_Heeler_Booklife @Linsy I am forcing myself today, but still think Starsight is good. Yes, finding the right med or meds are so hard. I had to change meds 3 times in a month span last month and it was the worst. 3y
