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”

Biweekly Book Review: Before The Awakening/ Cobalt Squadron/ The Spark Of Resistance

It’s here. I can’t believe it. The final batch of reviews in the middle grade books, and the last Biweekly Book Review of 2020. Thank you so much for sticking with me, and for joining me on this adventure through this crazy year. The series will be back next year with the movie novelizations, andContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Before The Awakening/ Cobalt Squadron/ The Spark Of Resistance”

Biweekly Book Review: The Weapon Of A Jedi/ Smuggler’s Run/ Moving Target

As the world prepared for the arrival of The Force Awakens, and a whole new generations of Star Wars movies, three middle grade novels were dropped as part of the “Journey to…” publishing program. Though the movies were set to introduce us to a whole new generation of characters, the books are centred around theContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: The Weapon Of A Jedi/ Smuggler’s Run/ Moving Target”

Biweekly Book Review: Guardians Of The Whills/ Lando’s Luck/Pirate’s Price

With the anthologies behind us, it’s time to move into the middle grade books! These are all going to be firsts for me too, since I hadn’t planned on reading them at all at first. Then I got in too deep. Anyway. With a new chunk of books comes a format change! This time, it’llContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Guardians Of The Whills/ Lando’s Luck/Pirate’s Price”
