Finishing up some more comics. Loved Darth Vader! Galaxy‘s edge wasn‘t bad either.
I‘m on a bit of a Star Wars binge to prepare for the new movie. These comics were a quick read, and I loved seeing Mon Cala and Admiral Ackbar‘s son!!
Unpopular opinion: why did this book get so much positive feedback?
So disgusted with the way she was treated and abused/ humiliated for her to just make nice and kiss the very same guy. A guy kills her parents so she lives with him and learns about politics from him? Sorry, but how does this story make it through a publisher? It felt rushed, and cruel just for the shock factor of being cruel.
My favorite Star Wars book since Thrawn Alliances! So many awesome appearances/throwbacks. Takes place a few days after Crait. I‘m living for the Finn/Poe content. ❤️
3.5/5 stars! Didn‘t really root for the characters, at times I was a bit bored, but I did feel like this book made me think a lot. The bitter jokes about humanity and how people would act during the apocalypse were spot on. And I think I‘m in the minority here- but I liked the ending. The trial scenes where the aliens are trying to decide whether to let us live or not - the best part!!
Finally got around to reading this one, and I‘m so glad I did. It was gripping and I‘m so glad I bought a copy because I know I‘ll read it again. Moving, sad, beautiful, terrible.
I haven‘t posted on Litsy in a while, but I read this book recently and I really liked it! I am a big fan of Neil Gaiman‘s writing style, I think his prose is beautiful. He is a truly great storyteller.
Cute, charming, warm book set in 1946, on the island of Guernsey that was recently occupied by the Germans. The entire book format is written letters, telegrams, etc. if you can get past that, it is a good read. The romance felt a bit like Jane Austen.
I liked this book a lot but I was hoping for at least one interaction with Ben Solo. Still it was interesting all the way through and it helped me understand Leia more.
Trying to decide what to read next! Which one of these books did you love?
This was one of those books that I can‘t step away from even after I‘ve finished it. I‘m still sitting here trying to come to terms with this book. The writing was gorgeous and so descriptive that I really felt like I was there. The book switches between two main characters POV in very short but powerful chapters. It was a bit long, a hefty 500 pages but I couldn‘t rush through it either. Humbling, gut wrenching, haunting, depressing, inspiring.
Loved loved loved this book! It‘s truly amazing writing. I will be reading more from this author. One of the top Star Wars books I‘ve ever read, up there with darth bane!
This follows a child who is raised in awful conditions. An alcoholic father who loves his children but just cannot stay sober. When he isn‘t drunk he tells them stories, they plan a magnificent glass castle they will one day build, and teaches them about physics, geology, etc. The mother was selfish and so dysfunctional. The kids are so resilient and the writing is really well done.
Not a fan of this one. It was like a really watered down version of night circus to me. I had high hopes. A fantasy carnival game? Sign me up! But there was no world building, zero character development, and the game was just ridiculous. No emotional depth. Anticlimactic. I almost gave up on this one, and now that I‘ve finished, I wish I did.
I don‘t really have the words to describe this book. I couldn‘t put it down. It was very violent at times and it was difficult to wrap my head around what the world became. I felt so empowered in the beginning, when women were breaking their chains and not allowing people to abuse them. Then it escalated and it was shocking and terrible. Would definitely recommend if you aren‘t squeamish.
This book was so fun! A cute quick read. The cover of the book calls it a mixture of Willy Wonka and the Matrix, which I would agree with. Now I am excited for the movie coming out in March.
Some book mail came today! Anxiously awaiting my botm box as well.
Ahhhh!!! Crazy ending!! On the edge of my seat. Loved this trilogy. I should have read it sooner!
Final book in the trilogy! Darth bane is a great villain, I can‘t get enough.
