This week's non reading activities all occurred offworld!!! 😁😁😁 Galaxy's Edge was fantastic!!!

LibrarianRyan JELLY!!! 5mo
IamIamIam @LibrarianRyan OMIGOSH, so amazing!!! You need a Disneyland rainy day fund! 😍 5mo
Puredragonstar You did the restrictions? Was it as bad as they say? Was that area empty? I live in Miami and we heard about all the restrictions they put in Disneyland. Also, that they are thinking about doing it to Disney world! 5mo
IamIamIam @Puredragonstar There aren't any restrictions anymore so it wasn't terrible. The line was about 65 minutes but it didn't feel like it. I feel bad for the APs, though, because that's got to be awful!!! The area was pretty empty but think Hollywood Studios before they put Toy Story Land in. Lol, lots of little shops and they haven't opened the 2nd ride yet. The land is so insanely detailed!!! 5mo
Puredragonstar I‘m an AP I hope they don‘t restrict us... anyway it sounds amazing and I can‘t wait to visit ours!!!! Looks like a great time!!! Thanks for the information! 5mo

Good, not great. Certainly a fun caper book, but the Star Wars tie-in is weak and gimmicky. (Speaking just in reference to the movies - I haven‘t read many of the EU books.) Sure there are plenty of winking references (Han shot first, having a bad feeling about something, even an elaborately set up Indiana Jones reference) but ultimately the characters don‘t really behave like themselves. 👇

CSeydel The same Han who “prefers a straight fight to all this sneaking around” on the Death Star mere months before the events of this book, now plans and executes an intricate and multi-pronged con job/heist involving a team of 11 (get it - 11?) scoundrels from the galactic underworld. The Imperial involvement felt forced and unnecessary, until the twist at the end, which was sort of fun. That said, I enjoyed the new (to me) characters and the plot. 1y

What a fun caper book!!! This takes place around the same time as Shadows of the Empire & involves a heist with Han, Chewy & Lando and a crew of new recruits. Most impressive was Marc Thompson's one man narration of these fabulous characters! While it could have been a bit shorter & I got a little bit lost in some of ther details, it's all relatable if you've seen the original trilogy. 🤓 May the force be with you!

Up next... my husband said I should have listened to this before we saw Solo, but I'm going to catch up now. Better late than never!

Mehso-so

Eh, this was okay I guess.

Han, Chewie, Lando, and a team of 8 others (11, get it?) pull off a complicated heist between A New Hope and Empire.

Pros: Han runs from a boulder while swinging a whip, surprisingly likable Imperial operatives, neat little twist at the end

Cons: too big of a team to develop the characters, the planning was really boring - would have been a zippy montage in a movie

It all evened out to mediocre.

Got to meet Timothy Zahn at Planet Comic Con in Kansas City! ?He was very nice and signed a copy of "Scoundrels" for me. I'm so glad Disney is hiring him to write new canon novels; his Expanded Universe novels were so awesome.

annkuch13 😍😍 so cool! 3y
Jediash1 @annkuch13 I was one happy fan girl! 😊 3y
SaraFair Yes! Did not know he would be writing more! In reading his novels compared to others in the old canon, I love how they go straight to the point and how he drops bombs at the end of paragraphs. I am excited to try more of these that you have reviewed on Litsy. 2y
Jediash1 @SaraFair I hope you enjoy them! Timothy Zahn is, I think, the best of the Star Wars authors. He writes with such a classic feel. I'm a big fan! 2y
