Waiting on Wednesday 05/23/18

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!

Mogsy’s Pick

Skyward by Brandon Sanderson (November 6, 2018 by Delacorte Press)

Do I really need to explain why I’m excited? It’s Brandon Sanderson, that’s all you need to know! It’s also the first book of a new series, so I’m curious to find out more.

“From Brandon Sanderson, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Reckoners series, Words of Radiance, and the internationally bestselling Mistborn series, comes the first book in an epic new series about a girl who dreams of becoming a pilot in a dangerous world at war with aliens. 

Spensa’s world has been under attack for hundreds of years. An alien race called the Krell leads onslaught after onslaught from the sky in a never-ending campaign to destroy humankind. Humanity’s only defense is to take to their ships and combat the Krell. Pilots are the heroes of what’s left of the human race.

Becoming a pilot has always been Spensa’s dream. Since she was a little girl, she has imagined soaring above the earth and proving her bravery. But her fate is intertwined with that of her father–a pilot himself who was killed years ago when he abruptly deserted his team, leaving Spensa’s chances of attending Flight School at slim to none.

No one will let Spensa forget what her father did, but she is determined to fly. And the Krell just made that a possibility. They’ve doubled their fleet, which will make Spensa’s world twice as deadly . . . but just might take her skyward.”

  1. Ooh nice! Have yet to read one of his books! And whoa! That cover reminds me of the fan art from the Books-a-Million ACOWAR! Which I forget what Redbubble or like site artist designed!

    Here’s my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower 🙂


  2. How the hell does he do it? I’m starting to wonder if the man ever sleeps, or if he has a team of ghostwriters publishing under his name. He’s more of a publishing powerhouse than King was at his prime.

    Selfishly, of course, I wish he’d skip the YA stuff and give us more epic stuff sooner. 🙂


    • I once got to chat with him at a con, and he literally told me he doesn’t sleep, lol. That sometimes he has insomnia and so writing helps. I thought that was kinda funny considering how much we joke 😛


    • As long as he finishes them, it’s all good! He may start a lot of series, but at least he puts out all the books on a regular schedule. He is definitely more reliable than some authors…*cough* GRRM *cough* Rothfuss *cough*


    • He’s written a couple sci-fi novellas, as well as a YA trilogy about superheroes that is kind of sci-fi, but yes, I’m quite excited that he’s going for more “hard” sci-fi with this one 🙂


  3. I read The Way of Kings (first book I’ve read by him) and knew that this would be an insta-buy author too hahahah Going to get back into the Stormlight Archive universe again soon and can’t wait, but seeing this dude publish so many books with so much consistency is scary!!! I do hope this one will turn out awesome! 😀
