Waiting on Wednesday / Can’t Wait Wednesday
Today’s excitement is all about a book that comes with an app! I’m seeing this sort of technology more and more, it’s pretty new and exciting. I hope the book is too!
Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here, at Wishful Endings, and my version is a mix of what I’m waiting to read, whether it’s a new release that is not out yet, or an older book on my TBR shelf, which I really want to read but haven’t got around to it yet.
Here’s my ‘Can’t wait to read’, book for this week:
IGIST (pronounced “eye-gist”). The intended medium for this new Sci-Fi series, IGIST (Intergalactic Institute of Science and Technology), is an innovative app (available on iOS and Android) that immerses the reader in the stellar IGIST universe, augmenting the digital reading experience with the smartphone’s technological capabilities, in contrast to traditional E-Readers like Amazon’s Kindle.
“Star Wars meets Harry Potter.” -The Readings of an English Teacher
According to the one teacher on Earth who believed in her, Emi hadn’t a chance. The space academy of her dreams was more than a reach. The Intergalactic Institute of Science and Technology hadn’t admitted an Earthling for decades. The bygones left on Earth would lead a boring existence if, and only if, they were lucky enough to evade the plague.Emi always thought she was different, not because her only friend growing up in Rockland was a drone named Sadee, but because she was very determined, albeit obstinately, to become a revered scientist like her late mother. But even a passion for science and good old-fashioned grit could not prepare Emi for the challenges that await in a wide, strange galaxy under the auspices of the Star League.
“Truly a one-of-a-kind experience for science fiction fans and lovers of technology!” -Literature Approved

What have you been wanting to read?
Not only does the blurb intrigue me, but there is also an app! (Check out the short video above). By reading the book you unlock badges and earn coins, just by reading – which is great for reluctant teen readers, but also fun for everyone! The whole book is available on this app.
On your phones search IGIST and download the free IGIST app to make the story an Immersive Novel: see the black-and-white illustrations in the book transform into colourful animations and discover hidden gems in Augmented Reality.
Is this on your TBR or have you already read it? What your ‘Can’t wait for’ book? Do let me know in the comments below. Thank you!
