Biweekly Book Review: Thrawn Ascendancy: Greater Good

Thrawn is back! Well…”back”. For all that is name is on the cover of this book, he isn’t actually in it all that much. And unlike last time, people don’t even talk about him that much. He just sort of…is there. While other people are there. That’s not to say that I’m not still enjoyingContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Thrawn Ascendancy: Greater Good”

Biweekly Book Review: Skywalker: A Family At War

My heart is so full, y’all. I don’t even know where to start with this one. Perhaps along the lines of “Kristin Baver knocked this out of the damn park” because that is absolutely what happened here. I’m a fast reader but I usually like to take a couple of days to go through aContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Skywalker: A Family At War”

Biweekly Book Review: William Shakespeare’s The Jedi Doth Return

Commentary by Arezou Amin and Dr. Nora Williams We’re Not Mad, Just Disappointed: A Star Wars Story It’s that time again. Time for Nora and I to read a for-fun adaptation of a well-loved classic, and take it far too seriously. But you know what? Something being for fun is absolutely no excuse to notContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: William Shakespeare’s The Jedi Doth Return”

Biweekly Book Review: First Anniversary + Obi-Wan Kenobi Comics

Today I’m marking the one-year anniversary of the Biweekly Book Review and…well…safe to say I didn’t think this would last a year. This is partially because of my inability in the Before Times to consistently stick to writing a blog. I would post once, maybe twice, then abandon the whole thing. But then maybe that’sContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: First Anniversary + Obi-Wan Kenobi Comics”

Biweekly Book Review: Victory’s Price

You know what I was expecting? I was expecting to read this book, to struggle to come up with talking points, and ultimately to write a review that was along the lines of “yeah, that was fine I guess” What I didn’t expect was for this book to so thoroughly knock the air out ofContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Victory’s Price”

May the Force Be With Us: Watching the Star Wars Saga in 88 Days

I like “Firsts”. Good or bad, they’re always memorable. – Ahsoka Tano OK, maybe “first” is a bit of a stretch. This isn’t the first time I’ve marathoned Star Wars. Other than “Resistance” this wasn’t my first time watching any of this content. But it was the first time I watched the entire saga –Continue reading “May the Force Be With Us: Watching the Star Wars Saga in 88 Days”

Biweekly Book Review: William Shakespeare’s The Empire Striketh Back

Commentary by: Arezou Amin and Dr. Nora Williams I ask you, Ian Doescher, who is this for? The Empire might strike back, but I guarantee it doesn’t strike back quite as hard as two art-major Star Wars nerds who’ve spent a year in quarantine and have nothing but time. That’s right, I am back withContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: William Shakespeare’s The Empire Striketh Back”

Biweekly Book Review: William Shakespeare’s Star Wars

Commentary by: Arezou Amin and Dr. Nora Williams In time so long ago begins our play; In star-crossed galaxy far, far away… We all knew this was coming. It was only a matter of time before I started covering the William Shakespeare’s Star Wars series by Ian Doescher. In a new feature, once a monthContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: William Shakespeare’s Star Wars”

Biweekly Book Review: The High Republic: Into The Dark

New year, new Star Wars era, and now…a new book by Claudia Gray *squeals*. Of all the High Republic books, this is the one I was most looking forward to. I was not disappointed in my anticipation. Looking to the future though, Claudia is the only High Republic author who hasn’t been confirmed for anyContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: The High Republic: Into The Dark”

Biweekly Book Review: The High Republic: A Test of Courage

The adventure into the High Republic continues, and with it comes something novel: an adventure centred entirely around kids! If you go back, you can see that I generally don’t take to the Star Wars middle grade books. However, I also acknowledge that I’m not exactly the target audience for these books. But if thisContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: The High Republic: A Test of Courage”
