I don‘t know why I wanted to make myself sad but here we are. I also forgot how much of a crush I have on Cassian. If anyone needs me I‘ll be in my fan fiction cave.

Even knowing how this one is going to end, I still teared up...it probably didn‘t help reading them as a trilogy, everyone you grew close to over the 3 Rogue One novels mets an unfortunate end. But this backstory of ordinary people resisting, resisting with every once of will in them, giving it all and then sacrificing even more, it‘s the backdrop to a story we know, but it‘s only through the struggle of past generations, that the next knows Hope.

And they are always so clever at reflecting human behavior through the droids perspective, to be one of a group ‘just following orders‘ is easy, the flow of the mob....but individuality is so much riskier, scarier, because it means you have to make decisions yourself and the consequences are all yours.

I‘ve always loved how the Star Wars universe has portrayed the affection between droids and their human counterparts...in the rebellion there is always some compassion there, some shared interests....L3 would have approved.

MelissaSue81 My daughter will be very happy about this news. she loved Rogue One 13mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @InLibrisVeritas I‘m very interested, I liked Cassian‘s conflicted character in the movie, and even more now that we are getting a deeper view of his thoughts with the novelization....however it means I‘m going to have to check out how this streaming service works. 13mo
InLibrisVeritas @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Yeah...I really dont want to sign up for another streaming service. But if they put a decent line up on it, I suppose I will consider it. 13mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @InLibrisVeritas As more shows go this way I‘m thinking I‘ll have to look into it for sure...I‘m still missing out on the new Star Trek, now I‘ll be missing Star Wars content too 🤷‍♀️ 13mo

1. Empire Strikes Back!! It‘s still #1 but Rogue One was so so amazing, definitely in the running for #1.
2. Of all time: Han Solo, then R2D2; from Rogue One: Chirrut Imwe, then Bodhi Rook
3. Ummm, maybe?

Shout out to my four favorite books I read in 2017! Six of Crows, A Man Called Ove, Rogue Heroes, and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. A YA fantasy, thought provoking contemporary fiction, a British WWII history, and Star Wars - that about captures my reading interests! 😆Also I have to include a shout out to @BookFreakOut and my book club, who introduced me to two of these picks. #2017reads #endofyearlist Happy reading in 2018!

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Looks like a great mix to me 2y

I've only seen the movie, but there is a novel and sundry fact and sticker books as well. Today's #Septembowie prompt just made me think of this story, and especially the hug. "We can beat them
just for one day.
We can be #heroes
just for one day."

Cinfhen Well done 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 2y
Leniverse @Cinfhen Thank you! But I just realised tomorrow's prompt is Rebel Rebel and I've already used the rebel alliance. 😣😆 @Zelma Yes, this was Star Wars for grownups, and it avoided a lot of common tropes. I really hope they make more SW movies like that! (edited) 2y

NovelGirl82 @LextricSheep I think it's my favorite SW movie, to date! Until this one came out, it was Empire Strikes Back, but I think Rogue One edged it out. We saw it twice in the theater. 2y
Texreader @NovelGirl82 I'm a lot like you. Not sure Empire beat it out but danged close. 2y
LectricSheep @NovelGirl82 Nice! Okay, I think you guys have talked me into it. (Don't tell my partner though-- I think I can convince him to buy me cupcakes for movie night to sweeten the deal) 2y
Amanda23 Nice! It's an awesome movie. 2y
NovelGirl82 @Texreader Yeah, it's a close call between this one and Empire. They are both awesome. Definitely movies that I can watch any time! 2y
NovelGirl82 @LectricSheep Definitely go for the cupcakes! That will only enhance the viewing! 2y
Crystalblu I love this movie! And for me it does not beat out Empire, but it gets damn close. And, that ending! No spoilers, but we had to run home and put on A New Hope! 2y

Oh, the feels! ?This book is even more heartbreaking and powerful than the movie. It highlights the thoughts and struggles of each character. These Rebels are ordinary, broken people who found the courage to do the impossible. Makes "A New Hope" so much more poignant. This is easily my favorite book in the new Star Wars canon; highly recommend!

ElyssaReads Did you read Catalyst too? 3y
Jediash1 @ElyssaReads I did! :) I hope they do some more prequels for the other characters like Cassian and Chirrut too. 3y

This was my first #24in48 book (along with the knitting I was working on as I read). It was a good novelization of the movie. I particularly enjoyed everything with Bodhi cause he's my favorite. But getting into the heads of all the members of Rogue One really added depth to the story that I loved to see.

annkuch13 Bodhi's my favorite, too!!💜 3y

This novelization really enhances the movie, especially in terms of developing the characters. Freed even added some incidental female characters (which the movie was appallingly devoid of). The audio is very well done.

Finally got to see the movie last night and I loved it!! I haven't read any Star Wars books yet (mostly because there are so many I don't know where to start!) so I'm going to start with this one. Has anyone read it? Any other Star Wars books recommendations?

Puredragonstar Okay so this is the deal with the Star Wars books situation. When Lucas owned the rights he let anyone add books to the series, kinda like fanfic. But when Disney bought it they decided that the books that were out didn't flow with their storyline. So if you want to read the books that actually have something to do with the current events they have to have the Disney seal of approval. On good reads you can find the Disney reading order. Very good. 3y
emily_jkn My favorite book of the new canon is Lost Stars by Claudia Grey. It's a standalone story that takes place during the original trilogy so it's a great place to dip your toes in! Two best friends become officers in the Empire and then one defects to the Rebelliom 3y

We saw Rogue One and then came home and my son and I watched a New Hope. His and my fave character was Chirrut Imwe (my son got his first degree black belt last year having started martial arts just before he turned 4, so we loved the martial arts). Such a good movie with so many characters to love. Who was your fave? 👇🏻
