#StarWarsBuddyRead

Couldn‘t help but notice our 2 books a month in the summer was a total bust & most people are just reading/finishing June‘s pick. So I revamped the schedule back to 1 a month going forward....which means based on our last vote August‘s read is now Solo, and I‘m pushing off The Princess, the Scoundrel, and the Farm Boy until September. Hopefully that works for everyone and will give everyone a chance to catch up a little.

I'm a little behind on the #StarWarsBuddyRead but I finally finished this one. I enjoyed the plot and the background of the relationship between Qui Gon and Obi Wan. I did think the writing could use some work but overall it was a fun read. @Riveted_Reader_Melissa

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I enjoyed those parts too. 4w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa And no worries, I am behind too. 4w

Finally caught up with #StarWarsBuddyRead May pick (a month late - it didn't come in until June) and am now working on June's picks. This one was fine, I'd say 3.5 stars. The writing from Johnston is good but it wasn't necessarily the most riveting/exciting SW book. I'd read a book about Sabé post-epilogue in a heartbeat, though!

Book 1 for #bfc week 2 as well! #bookfitnesschallenge #bfcr2 #justbookit @wanderinglynn

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Right! I‘d love to read a Sabé book! 2mo

Just an update for those following along with the #StarWarsBuddyRead this summer.

I fully enjoyed the first two this June, looking forward to the next two.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @JanuarieTimewalker13 The description reminded me of Simon for some reason and I enjoyed that book. 2mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 I haven‘t read that one yet!! But it‘s on the TBR, or was at one time but I left GR. Not sure if it‘s stacked on Litsy. 2mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 Yup, it‘s stacked here too. One day😀 2mo

This one really delivered... I was expecting a lighter YA prequel novel, which it was, but I got quite an adventure! Double crosses, Empire defectors, street racing, secret hideouts, triple crosses, space pirates...and some where in the middle of all that how Han and Qi‘ra first learned to trust each other and Han‘s first time in space.

I enjoyed this one way more than I expected!

- Some prophecy hints about what‘s to come in the final installment this December.
- A few twists I didn‘t see coming
- How Dooku‘s slow slide to the Dark Side began, and
- Young Kenobi was so much more entertaining than I ever expected (& Pax & Rahara)

This is one of those that makes me regret that I won‘t be completely caught up with the new cannon books before the final film.

Megabooks My former boss was really into Star Wars, and before I‘d do a new surgery, he‘d always say, “There is no try.” The other girl I worked with there actually named her kids Luke and Leia!! 🤷🏻‍♀️😁 2mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Megabooks 😂 That‘s great...and hey, if you‘re going to name you kids after fictional characters, those aren‘t too bad. I knew a Dartagnan once. 2mo

Up next for our #StarWarsBuddyRead we have 2 choices in June. You can read either or both, it‘s up to you.

I haven‘t read either of these yet, so I‘m going to try and read both this month. There are only a few months left until the next and last movie in the trilogy comes out in December, and I personally have quite a few new canon books I want to read yet before then. 😉

May the Force Be With You!

NovelGirl82 I‘m hoping to get to both of them this month! I‘m still finishing up last months now! 3mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @NovelGirl82 I understand, for once I‘m caught up on this one, but behind on my other bookclub....I can never seem to keep them all caught up at the same time. LOL! 3mo
