Can’t Wait Wednesday: Starsight by Brandon Sanderson
Can’t Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings and spotlights upcoming releases.
All her life, Spensa has dreamed of becoming a pilot. Of proving she’s a hero like her father. She made it to the sky, but the truths she learned about her father were crushing. The rumours of his cowardice are true – he deserted his flight during battle against the Krell. Worse, though, he turned against his team and attacked them.
Spensa is sure there’s more to the story. And she’s sure that whatever happened to her father in his starship could happen to her. When she made it outside the protective shell of her planet, she heard the stars – and it was terrifying. Everything Spensa has been taught about her world is a lie.
But Spensa also discovered a few other things about herself–and she’ll travel to the end of the galaxy to save humankind if she needs to.
Why I Can’t Wait:
I loved Skyward so much (you can read my review here) thanks to its well-paced and engaging plot. The characters were fantastic and I adored the dynamics between the training pilots. Also, the talking spaceship and Doomslug were incredible. You should definitely take the chance to read Skyward now if you haven’t already.
Release Date: 26 November 2019
