I don‘t generally read a ton of sci-fi, but I loved this! My husband is obsessed with Brandon Sanderson, but was skeptical of him veering from the fantasy titles he usually writes, so I‘m hoping I‘ll be able to convince him to try this one. Can‘t wait for the sequel!
Also, did anyone else finish this and think humans were probably in exactly the position they deserved to be in?!

GrilledCheeseSamurai I really enjoyed this too! Can't wait for the next one. 🤘 2w

Back at it this morning with another #audiobook while I get breakfast around and the kids play. Lane keeps asking “what‘s that girl talking about?!” I had to pick a book I knew wouldn‘t have a lot of questionable language he‘d pick up on... #readathon #reversereadathon

JenFowler 😅 That is funny. I try to wear my audiobook and stick in headphones or my husband starts imitating the narrators. 3w
Johanna414 @JenFowler lol he has already pointed out twice that “she said stupid! That‘s a bad word!” 3w

Sooo good. Doomslug is my new favorite pet/ sidekick. Wasn‘t expecting to love this as much as I did. I was intrigued throughout, and the plot twist actually surprised me!

Finally got a turn to read this Brandon Sanderson novel! So excited yet cautiously reserved so that my hopes aren‘t dashed 😅. Low expectations so that they can be exceeded easily 😁.

I'm typically not a Sci Fi fan but this one was fantastic. The story itself was engaging, the writing was good, and I loved the characters, development, and relationships. MBot cracked me up. Spensa/Spin is also a fantastic protagonist.

Now this is how you write a YA book!!! A strong, interesting main character, good side characters, one snarky AI, plenty of Sci Fi and action in space for a lifetime!! Oh and Doomslug. Read and you‘ll see.

Ah! Okay so this wasn't as like high sci-fi/space opera I was nervous it would be. I LOVED Spensa. Like omg. She's so motivated and independent and agh! Just yes to her whole thing. GIRL SPENDS THE WHOLE BOOK ON A QUEST AND THERES LIKE ONLY ONE MAYBE KINDA POTENTIAL ROMANCE HINTING! THATS IT! I'm very curious about the like...void that makes her hear the aliens. Just want more of the world and politics unveiled. HERE FOR THE SEQUEL!

Finally found the time to sit down and get this finished. It was so much better than I expected, this being my first non-cosmere, YA Brandon Sanderson. I was highly impressed and can‘t wait for the sequel. Team Doomslug

After a false start with a different book, I decided to pick Skyward up instead and it‘s really good so far. Unfortunately, I‘ve spent the entire weekend doing everything but read, including moving all my books and bookshelves downstairs, but I‘ve managed to get about 150 pages in.

This is my first Brandon Sanderson book, and it won‘t be my last. I felt like it was slow the first 100ish pages or so, and then it totally picked up and I found myself swept up in this story.

I love fantasy books, and this was definitely more sci-fi with aliens and space elements.

I‘ll definitely be reading the next book in this series!

Spencer_Labbe Your first Sanderson! Woo! You're in for a treat! Mistborn series, Elantris, The Stormlight Archive, all superb Fantasy books! Best of the best! 6mo

Brandon Sanderson knows what he is doing even in YA Sci-fi! This is YA with NO Romance!! Genius!! Because Brandon Sanderson doesn't need romance to be a master storyteller. Complex world, unique characters, building plot, well described action sequences, satisfying ending, and no paltry cliffhanger to make you read the sequel. No need to bait me. I will read the sequel.

JanuarieTimewalker13 The UK cover is beautiful!! 4mo

Kids training to be pilots in a seemingly unending war against an alien species they don‘t understand & can‘t beat—I totally get why my son loves this book. Spensa has always wanted to be a pilot but she lives under the cloud of father‘s well-known cowardice in battle, making her journey to acceptance & certification as a pilot harder than most. Good YA science fiction, a fast read with a likable & very feisty lead who you root for from page 1.

ravenlee Is this a stand-alone or part of a series? 7mo
TracyReadsBooks @ravenlee It‘s the first in a series, presumably a trilogy, with the second one out this fall. 7mo
ravenlee Thank you! I hate reading a book, only to find out at the end that the story continues - especially if they‘re currently being published! 7mo

Same title—which I just now noticed—for my next read. This time it‘s YA science fiction instead of a graphic novel. I bought this one for myself but then gave it to my son to read since he enjoyed another one of Sanderson‘s YA books. He read it not once but twice all the way through before telling me he was done & I could read it...Which, I just tried to do but he just took it back so he could read some fav sections. Has to be good, right?!?

DuckOfDoom It's fantastic!!! Your son has excellent taste 😁 7mo

Question: If "evil superheroes" was the hook for the Reckoners series, what is the hook for Skyward?

*******

Does that mean M-Bot is basically Toothless?! If so sign me up!!! Only about 20% into this right now but am really enjoying this so far.

tealwish I love this comparison and will use it to get my son to read it! 6mo

I liked this! I thought the background to the main character and her motivations were well developed, even though it‘s Sci-Fi, I didn‘t think the storyline was over the top (a friend used this as her excuse as to why she wouldn‘t read as Sci-Fi in a discussion we were having recently 🙄) and the ending was a bit ‘Oooh!!‘😂And Spaceships, people, SPACESHIPS!!!

Earlier when I said sci fi could be a hit or miss, I meant it and this just isn‘t holding my attention. I don‘t just don‘t care about the characters and I‘m not really that engaged in it.

Elisa I don‘t blame you. I finished it and it did get better in the last 100 pages, but most of it felt like a chore. 7mo
BookishGirl06 @Elisa I feel like every other person I‘ve seen read this has loved it. Glad to see I‘m not the only one who thought it was meh 7mo
Elisa @BookishGirl06 I know! I don‘t get it. The dialogue was terrible, the humor felt forced and cringey, the characterization made everyone so unappealing, and most of the book was terribly dull. I enjoyed the last 100 pages more and ended up giving it 3 stars, but I came really close to swapping the darn thing, and I‘m still considering it. (edited) 7mo
