    I loved Skyward. I'll probably end up rereading it sometime this year. I generally can't resist rereading stuff by Sanderson within a year.

    Very much this!
    I will probably reread it close to when the second comes out because of how fast I powered through it.
    Although if we get at ARC at my B&N like we did for the first one.. .

    Man, I'll be jealous.

    I had actually not expected Skyward to be quite as good as it was, but the more I think about it, the more I'm thinking it makes the perfect recommendation for people who aren't die-hard SFF readers to get them into Sanderson. I'm seriously confused why this isn't hailed as the next HP or Hunger Games. Probably because it doesn't have a movie, I suppose.

    I finally read Skyward and I really did like it!
    I expected the book to be like Sanderson's other YA books (Rithmatist, Calamity, Alcatraz) but it was completely original. I was nervous that it wouldn't be anything new but I was happily surprised.

    Lot of his works are so original it is mindboggling. I love all the unique magic systems.

    I just was looking at Amazon and second book of Skyward is up for pre-order, called Starlight, $16 and ships December this year. I grabbed it. :)
