The audio book is awesome! Really, really well done and you get the whole Star Wars feeling with it. Even though I liked all the stories I guess my favourites were “Rules of the Game“ and “Hear Nothing, See Nothing, Say Nothing“.

bookandcat Any of those options look good except the Aftermath trilogy (I already read them and couldn't stand them, Wendig's writing style personally drove me nuts lol). 3w
GrilledCheeseSamurai @bookandcat I Dnf'd Aftermath. I don't know if all of Wendig's books are written that poorly but I don't think I'll ever have the chance to find out cuz I'm gonna stay far, far, away. 3w
GrilledCheeseSamurai I've heard great things about Alphabet Squadron. I've already bought it and plan on reading it soon so that's my vote. 😊 3w
bookandcat @GrilledCheeseSamurai I read the whole trilogy for a challenge and they really didn't improve. If anything maybe a tiny bit more editing? But his style of writing 1-3 word sentences and putting every word as a new line didn't change across the books. It was painful and I honestly couldn't tell you what happened in the books because I blocked them out of my head. The worst written star wars books I've ever read. 3w

Just a reminder as we finish up 2019 and The Resistance Reborn, in January we are stating 2020 with Canto Bight for anyone interested in continuing to travel the galaxy... please feel free to join us.

bookandcat I actually read Resistance Reborn this month! It was pretty good though not as essential to understanding Rise of Skywalker as I thought it might be 3w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @bookandcat I agree! I enjoyed seeing a bunch of groups from different books coming together in this one, but I also thought it was going to be more essential to the final film before seeing it...but I guess I also understand why it wasn‘t...too many don‘t read.🤷‍♀️ 3w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @bookandcat And yay! (For reading the book). 3w
bookandcat @Riveted_Reader_Melissa thanks! I read a lot of the picks just usually a few months after they are due 😂😂😂😂😂😂 3w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @bookandcat I‘ve been known to do that myself... probably why it‘s a laid back group that picks books, but doesn‘t have a necessary discussion on a set date.🤪😂 3w
bookandcat @Riveted_Reader_Melissa my kind of group lolol 3w
GrilledCheeseSamurai I'm in for Canto Bight! 🤘 3w

Its started off poorly, with a predictable story, but the stories of Canto Bight got better with each tale, ending with John Jackson Miller's funny and engaging story, "The Ride". 3 ??? 1/2 out of 5.

A collection of 4 short stories about Canto Bight, the gambling planet we meet on The last Jedi. Not my favorite star wars canon book but still an enjoyable listen ⭐️⭐️⭐️

More Star Wars audio fun! I loved the scenes in The Last Jedi that took place in Canto Bight. It was such an interesting planet and City with such characters! This collection did not disappoint. I loved all the stories and hearing how they connected. It was a treat to hear from parts of the Star Wars universe unrelated to the characters we usually hear about. Also the audio was of course wonderful- the voices were great!

Just finished my 1000 piece Star Wars puzzle! (while reading a star wars book and wearing a star wars shirt lol😆)
Fun, fast paced short stories set in the Star Wars universe ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I'm not super familiar with these authors but my favorite was either the one by Mira Grant or Rae Carson

It seems I'm in the minority here, but I had fun with this novella collection. I enjoyed all four stories, and I LOVED Grant's offering about a wine sale gone wrong. The audio production was as entertaining as always, too.

One wider worldbuilding quibble: it seems the llama-cats from THE LAST JEDI are actually called something that sounds like faviers (or fabiers, or falliers, depending on the narrator's delivery). Hmpf. Llama-cats is WAY better.

I needed a break from reading with my eyes, so I put my audiobook on, fried up some sausages, and braised some kale with a whole lot of garlic. It was delish. #audiocooking

AceOnRoam Yummo 2y
TricksyTails 🤤 DROOL! Need. Recipe. 🙏😊 2y
xicanti @TricksyTails first I fry up 2-3 sausages per portion and set them aside. If they didn't produce much grease, I add 1-2tsp of bacon fat to the pan and let it melt. Then I shred enough kale to fill one packed cup, rinse it off, and toss it in the bacon fat while it's still damp. I crank the heat to med-high, add 1/2 cup chicken stock & 1-1.5tsp minced garlic, and braise it for about 10 mins, stirring often, until all the liquid's absorbed. 2y

xicanti @TricksyTails oh, and I chop the sausages into rounds and add them back to the pan in the last couple minutes of cooking so they brown up a bit more and soak up some of the stock. Sometimes I do it with 2-3 strips of bacon instead, in which case I crumble them over the kale once it's in its serving bowl, either by itself or atop basically any pasta. 2y
TricksyTails Yum!! Thank you for always sharing your recipes with me! 🤗♥️ Can‘t wait to make this next! 😋 2y
xicanti @TricksyTails it's soooooo good! Sometimes I try to branch out and cook kale in different ways, but I always come back to braised. It's tasty with some chili seeds tossed in along with the garlic, too. 2y
TricksyTails Mmm love some spice! And garlic! I‘ll definitely be trying this. Thank you! @MinDea you should try this too! Looks like something you‘d enjoy! 😋 2y

Last night I dipped leftover fried chicken in makhani sauce, and it was so good that I went ahead and made full on butter chicken waffles tonight, with a salad and some sausages I bought on a whim today. It ended up being a LOT of food, so I've saved one of the sausages for breakfast and put about half the salad in a Tupperware. #audiocooking

Saw The Last Jedi last night, and then picked up some reading for the holidays. Very excited to find out more about Canto Bight 🎰🎰🎰

2BR02B How was it? 2y
DaveNeufeld @2BR02B my daughter loved it. In a spoiler-free environment such as this I‘m going to withhold judgement. There was a lot to like, but a few things also really didn‘t resonate with me. I need to see it again! 2y

This collection of novellas about the opulent casino city Canto Bight (which will be a planet featured in The Last Jedi) was just ok for me. The stories and characters just didn't really hold my interest. I think this collection might be really enjoyable for someone with different tastes.
