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”

Biweekly Book Review: The High Republic: Light of the Jedi

Welcome back to the Biweekly Book Review, and more importantly, welcome to the High Republic, brand-new era of storytelling set some 200 years before The Phantom Menace! If I was excited for this new publishing program before, purely because it meant more books to read, it’s nothing compared to how pumped I am now thatContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: The High Republic: Light of the Jedi”

Fandom, Twitter and Group Chats: My 2020 Saving Graces

I rang in New Years 2020 sitting on the floor of my bedroom, by myself, a drink in hand. I was ostensibly trying to clean out my closet, and I wasn’t super inclined to make plans that night because my parents were hosting a huge party 4 days later anyway. My social battery needed toContinue reading “Fandom, Twitter and Group Chats: My 2020 Saving Graces”

Biweekly Book Review: The Skywalker Saga

Surprise! One last book review for the year! In the grand tradition of this time of year, consider this a “Biweekly Book Review Holiday Special” rather than a full-on book review. This is just going to be a mini review, as there isn’t a ton to really dive into. The entire book is a fairlyContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: The Skywalker Saga”
