Darth Plagueis | James Luceno

All the Star Wars audio books are pretty awesome. They have background sound and Star Wars music and the narrator is always pretty good. This starts off slow but picks up some speed around the middle. It's interesting to see what was going on in the background to the events we already know.

Shadowshaper | Daniel Jos Older

I've been reading this book for a while. I own it so every time I got a book from the library it kind of got put on the back burner. I finally finished it and I'm so glad I did. I loved this book. It's such an interesting fantasy in a modern setting with great characters. I'm excited that Older plans to write more Shadowshaper books and I can't wait to read them.

Good expansion to Rogue One. Give some background on some of the mains that helps to fill I some question I had after seeing the movie.

Finally finished this. Just as good as the first two volumes. I'm so glad that John Lewis shared his story and decided to tell it in graphic novel format. Very happy that this was my first book of 2017.

The Princess Diarist | Carrie Fisher
post image
Pickpick

I've never ready anymore Carrie Fisher's other books but I do love Star Wars and follow her on twitter. It was interesting to see Carrie's memories of filming A New Hope. Most of the book does deal with what she calls her "extended one night stand" with Harrison Ford. She also includes pages from her journals written during that time.

Moana and the Ocean | Heather Knowles

This book is beautiful. The illustrations are amazing. There's not really a storyline, it's just Moana from the view of the ocean. It's a pretty simple book but would be a great one for younger kids who loved the movie.

Get children's book about Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Very simplified but a great way of introducing children to RBG and the Supreme Court.

I've always wanted an in universe history book for Star Wars and this is pretty close. The art is beautiful and it even fills in some of the questions I have about the Star Wars universe.

Good story that bridges the Ahsoka of Clone Wars with the Ahsoka of Rebels. Fills in a little more about the beginnings of the rebellion.

Nice introduction to some of history's more notorious women. I like how the book makes you think of these women are really as bad as history has made them out to be.

Southern Bastards Volume 3: Homecoming | Jason Aaron, Jason Latour, Chris Brunner
post image
Pickpick

I'm a University of Alabama graduate. As much as I love my time in college, I have many issues with so called "southern culture." I love Southern Bastards. I love how it uses the stereotypes just enough to give you the feel of the place. This volume you meet a lot more people around Craw County and it looks like of storyline are going to come together soon. I can't recommend this series enough.

March: Book Two | Andrew Aydin, John Lewis

Been putting off reading this but couldn't anymore. John Lewis tells us the story of the Freedom Rides and March on Washington through his eyes. It's not an easy story to read but it is an important one.

I've been enjoying these new canon Star Wars books. I like they they fill in between what we already know. This one was pretty good, not the best but still definitely worth reading. I hope they add a few more books like this in the future.

The Body Snatchers | Robert Louis Stevenson

Mehso-so

I like being able to say I've read classics and Serial Reader gives me an easy way to read them without getting over whelmed or bored. I think I like the Serial Reader concept more than some of the stories but reading is reading. And it gives me an easy way to read out of my comfort zone. With this story I found it interesting being based on Burke and Hare but didn't hold me as much as I thought it would.

I'm really liking Serial Reader for reading classics, it definitely makes them less intimidating. And who doesn't like a good vampire story for Halloween?

Really enjoyed this one. I've loved learning about the Romanov family since that Anastasia movie that was my favorite as a kid. The real story is considerably sadder than the movie. This book does a good job of giving an overview of the family.

This series continues to be awesome. I can't recommend it enough. I love all the girls at camp, but Ripley and Jen's friendship is my favorite thing ever. I really wish this camp was read, cause I'd sign up in the heartbeat and I don't even like camping.

March: Book One | John Robert Lewis, Andrew Aydin, Nate Powell

Tell the story of how John Lewis first became involved in the Civil Rights movement. It tells us about his childhood in Alabama, his first time traveling outside the south, and how he meet Dr Martin Luther King Jr. Lewis is still in congress and still advocating for Civil Right and other important issues. He recently lead a sit in to trying to get congress to speak on gun control. His story is important and I look forward to the next books.

Chewbacca is one of my favorite Star Wars characters. This is nice little stand alone story about a side adventure Chewie got up to during the original trilogy. I love world building so little stories like this are right up my ally.

Star Wars is always a good choice. Nice little story about Han and Chewie that fills in for people who want to know more about what happened during the rebellion. I read the Leia book last year and liked it too. On to the Luke one next!
