Where are my Brandon Sanderson fans? Because I have another review for you. I read Skyward by Brandon Sanderson and it was my favorite book of the month!
Synopsis: Defeated, crushed, and driven almost to extinction, the remnants of the human race are trapped on a planet that is constantly attacked by mysterious alien starfighters. Spensa, a teenage girl living among them, longs to be a pilot. When she discovers the wreckage of an ancient ship, she realizes this dream might be possible—assuming she can repair the ship, navigate flight school, and (perhaps most importantly) persuade the strange machine to help her. Because this ship, uniquely, appears to have a soul.
Bran San has done it again! Skyward was everything I hoped it would be. Light science fiction with amazing character development and memorable action scenes. I couldn’t have asked for a better book.
Spensa was amazing as a character. I could feel how much she struggled with her identity at times but was so passionate about proving everyone wrong and showing that she is more than they see. She also cracked me up every time she sounded like an ancient war general with some of the stuff she said.
And Doomslug! I mean how freaking adorable can you get.
I do think that their society has some standards in it that need to be changed but I think that might happen as the series progresses. I talked out my frustrations at some of the interactions with Markus as I went along but I think that only adds to the passion that I had for the book. It made me feel so many emotions and that is why I loved this book.
I would recommend this book to anyone that wants a fun sci-fi read with lots of battles and amazing character development.
Book Rating: 5/5

I’ve been wanting to read this for so, so long! Will finally get it . I was afraid the fame and hype were painting it a shade greater than it actually is
I can honestly say I really enjoyed it. I had heard about it before but it was my significant other that pushed me to read it and I am really glad I did!
That’s awesome to hear! Then, I must thank your significant other too 🙂 Since it was this post that made me decide on reading it.
I have had this one on my list for a really long time and I can’t wait to get to it. So glad you loved it, thanks for sharing.
I hope you like it too!!
Brandon Sanderson is one of my favorite authors but I have to admit that my TBR pile had gotten large enough that I hadn’t added this book to the list yet.
That’s been remedied now; ‘Skyward’ ‘ll be next, right after Oathbringer. Thanks for the review!
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it David!
I’ll post a review on my AuthorTube / BookTube channel, ASAP!
You have an authortube?!!? Link me man!! I want to check it out 🙂
I just finished Skyward, and it’s going to take a bit of time to put all my thoughts and emotions to words. For now, I’ll just say ‘Wow!’ and thank you again for recommending this one. 🙂
I’m so glad you liked it!!
