Hey everyone! I'm taking over for @Riveted_Reader_Melissa for #StarWarsBuddyRead This month's book A Test of Courage I throughly enjoyed. I know it's a little early but what are everyone thoughts so far?
Also here is a quiz if you're interested to see what High Republic villain you are

If anyone wants to be added or removed please let me know.

CrowCAH I know these books can be kinda read in any order, but I was gona try to tackle them in publication order. With the new year and starting other books I didn‘t read this one. And I don‘t want to force a catch up read. You don‘t have to tag me. Thanks for taking over the Star Wars Buddy Read. I hope everyone enjoys living in a galaxy far far away! 1d
Jari-chan I didn't really get into Light Of The Jedi, but thoroughly enjoyed this one here. I liked the characters and how they grew and became friends. BTW: I'm the Drengir 😂 1d

#StarWarsBuddyRead

This is our slate of new releases for this year, but I‘m finding myself not in a Star Wars frame of mind at the moment. Would anyone else be interested in taking over this reading group & posts?

CrowCAH Sorry @Riveted_Reader_Melissa unfortunately I can‘t take on the extra responsibility. I hope you‘re doing well! 1w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @CrowCAH I‘m fine, just in a reading rut, and I desperately need to free up time to read something in a different vein for awhile. I‘m almost finished with Discworld so I‘m going to stick with that one, I‘m dropping Star Wars, Shakespeare, and Tolkien … one a month was great until it became a lot of men writing similar stuff. I really need to mix it up a bit I think. Make some room for some new authors & new worlds if that makes sense. 1w

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @CrowCAH I have new releases from last year that I haven‘t even started yet because I got bogged down in too many group reads. 😂 1w
BookwormAHN I'll do it. I've never taken over one so any tips would be helpful but as Star Wars obsessed as my reading has been I'm up for it 😺 1w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @BookwormAHN Yay! I was hoping someone was up for it. I hate for it to end just because my reading needs a shift. You can copy the tag list above for our group, you can keep the main tag unless you think of a better one. I just used the same backgrounds & updated the selections, if you want, I can post the blank ones for you or you can make your own. Anything I can give you to help get you started, just let me know. But please have fun with⤵️ 1w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @BookwormAHN it and make it your own. Enthusiasm and Star Wars obsessed is just what the group needs, and those are really the only requirements. (edited) 1w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @BookwormAHN Otherwise we were just going in release order of new canon, but you can shift that up any way you want. 1w
BookwormAHN Okay great and yes if you could post a blank one I'll start with that and then see what I like. 1w
CrowCAH @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Understanable. That‘s why I can only do one in person book club and read one of those books every other month, so I can read other books that interest me. 1w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @CrowCAH both the benefit and downfall of Litsy, too many great reading groups. But hey, I read all the new canon up until now and managed to finish all the Histories of Middle Earth, and over 3/4 of Shakespeare‘s plays before I burned out of them. Still a great accomplishment for me, but it‘s time to mix it up a bit. 1w
NovelGirl82 I‘m so behind because of school last year I‘ll probably burn out by the time I catch up, but we‘ll see I guess! 6d

A great Star Wars middle grade read. Vernestra, Imri, Avon, J-6 & Honesty are on a luxury liner headed to Starlight Beacon when bombs start going off. Vernestra who is a newly made Jedi knight & Imri a padawan help the others escape & then end up stranded on uninhabited planet.

A great addition to the young Star Wars catalog! The characters are of an age a middle-grade reader can relate too & they each experience a big, scary event with different emotions which the reader can understand. A very simplified but age-appropriate look into politics, emotions, & acts of violence. Characters are enjoyable, story has plenty of suspense & action for kids. 📚📚📚📚 #starwarsbuddyread

Mehso-so

Even though I wanted to like this book, it was more of a Meh to me. I'm not sure if it was required to be familiar with the High Republic series beforehand, but for me there were just too many characters, showing up way too fast. Most of the time I had no clue who was who... Therefore, I couldn't enjoy the story either... There were some ideas and parts I slightly could enjoy, but all in all this wasn't for me...

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 3w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I still haven‘t gotten mine from the library…long wait list. But I thought this was the first high republic book, maybe I missed one somewhere? 3w
Jari-chan @Riveted_Reader_Melissa It might as well be the first, and they thought it might be a good idea to throw in all characters at once 🤷‍♀️ 3w

I'm reviewing this one before the last book we read for the #StarWarsBuddyRead - but I just enjoyed this one here so much, I just have to. Of course, when Justina Ireland writes a book, it turns out well. This one here even turned out very well. I got a deep connection with the characters, and it was great, how Ireland wrote about Dark Side and its promises. It always felt nice to continue reading this book, and I'm somewhat sad, ⬇

I've been waiting to get to this one for #StarWarsBuddyRead and I really enjoyed it. I love some of the new Jedi like Avar Kriss, Elzar Mann, Bell and Loden Greatstorm 💙
A ship is destroyed in hyperspace and headed straight towards the Hetzal System. The Jedi are called to help stop the complete destruction.

More and more I realise that there are good short stories collections out there. This is one example of a very, very good one. I loved it more with every page. Seeing the whole movie through all those different eyes? Meeting people and creatures that are only shadows in the main plot? This is just pure awesomeness! My favourite story was the one with the Space Snail ❤

RamsFan1963 I loved this one and the one for Star Wars: A New Hope. I'm looking forward to the volume for Return of the Jedi. Maybe we'll get a story from the Rancor trainer? 2mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I really enjoyed both of these too… such a great way to revisit a story you think you know. 2mo
Twainy I love the 2 Star Wars collections. ❤️ 2mo

CSeydel Sorry I have been absent from Litsy for a while - life has been really challenging this year - but I am back! I am not great at sticking to a reading plan but I love seeing what‘s going on in the Star Wars reading community and reading your reviews ☺️ 3w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @CSeydel I‘m glad I‘m not the only one…sorry you had a tough year too….the last few months were tough for me, I‘m behind on my own Star Wars Reading. Welcome back, and here is to a better 2022 for both of us. 3w
CSeydel @Riveted_Reader_Melissa yes! Cheers to 2022 🥂 3w
