Biweekly Book Review: Rebel Rising

Poor Jyn Erso. She never stood a chance, did she? When I saw Rogue One, I figured it was merely life on her own during the height of the Empire that made Jyn so hesitant to trust, or to engage with the Rebellion. Hoo boy, I had no idea. This was a sad one, butContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Rebel Rising”

Biweekly Book Review: Most Wanted

Funny story: when I went to buy my copy of this book, I didn’t open it to look at it before I paid. Why would I? So I took it home, cracked it open, and saw that it abruptly started on page 32. No title page, no nothing. I then embarrassingly spent all afternoon thinkingContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Most Wanted”

Biweekly Book Review: Tarkin

We’re taking things back, all the way back to fall 2014, when Disney was starting to put out the first of their canon books. The first few, naturally, tied into the then-new Star Wars Rebels. But the first non-Rebels novel for adults to be released was James Luceno’s Tarkin, which I’m sure you’ve noticed isContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Tarkin”

My Star Wars Moment: A Love Letter to Amilyn Holdo

A few weeks ago, Shannon Moran, host of the podcast “Postcards From the Galaxy’s Edge” put out a call on Twitter for female content creators to submit a 2-3 minute video about the moment Star Wars spoke to them, as a woman. I jumped on the chance to try expressing myself in video format, andContinue reading “My Star Wars Moment: A Love Letter to Amilyn Holdo”

Biweekly Book Review: Lords of the Sith

Today’s review is a slight departure from form in that this is the first time I’ve ever read this book, so I haven’t had months to reflect on the plot like I have with the others. That said, let’s jump into Lords of the Sith by Paul S. Kemp. I admit I put this oneContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Lords of the Sith”

Biweekly Book Review: Catalyst

For a film as action-packed and war-movie-esque as Rogue One, it’s strange that the prequel novel would feel more like a prestige TV political thriller character study. Or maybe it makes perfect sense. Let’s take a look at Catalyst by James Luceno. *Spoilers Below* The Story It’s hard to give a straightforward summary of theContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Catalyst”

Biweekly Book Review: Ahsoka

As quickly as we started, we now start to wind down on the Clone Wars era. Without further ado, let’s dive into Ahsoka by E.K. Johnston. *spoilers below* The Story A year after the Siege of Mandalore and Order 66, Ahsoka Tano is alone and hiding from the Empire. She chooses the Outer Rim farmingContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Ahsoka”

Biweekly Book Review: Dark Disciple

Just in time for the Siege of Mandalore arc, we move away from the golden years of the Prequel era and dive headfirst into the Clone Wars. First up, Dark Disciple by Christie Golden. *Spoilers Below* I will admit that despite watching the entirety of The Clone Wars twice through, I still feel out ofContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Dark Disciple”

Biweekly Book Review: Queen’s Shadow

I am a child of the ’90s. While I had seen the original Star Wars movies, it wasn’t until The Phantom Menace that I got to see a Star Wars story in theatres. It wasn’t until then that I became interested in reading a Star Wars book (my much loved and very battered copy ofContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Queen’s Shadow”
