ack in January 2021, Charles Soule kicked off the entire High Republic publishing initiative with Light of the Jedi. The book is just one of many in the Star Wars series to become a New York Times Best Seller, and has now been nominated for a 2021 Goodreads Choice Award in the category of Science Fiction.

Each year, Goodreads, a platform that allows users to track the books they’re reading, follow their favorite authors, and connect with fellow readers and reviewers, gives awards to the top-rated books of the year. Users can now vote for books nominated in different categories in one of several rounds. Light of the Jedi is the only book to make the Best Science Fiction list.

Soule responded warmly to the announcement on Twitter, also acknowledging that the book is up against some equally impressive titles and authors. “VERY honored that LIGHT OF THE JEDI is a nominee for Best Sci Fi novel of 2021 in the Goodreads Choice Awards! I’m up against Neal Stephenson et al, so no illusions here.”

Don’t wait to vote for Light of the Jedi in the first round of nominations. Once you’re on the Goodreads page, just click the yellow “vote” button under the book’s image to cast your vote. Just make sure you’re logged in to your account!
