This is now one of my favorite Star Wars books! The plot follows a special intelligence squadron after the battle of Endor. I loved how each chapter is divided into perspectives from the different pilots, and you little glimpses of the larger puzzle as you get to know each character. Also, pilot angst! I highly recommend this one. You don't need to have read any other Star Wars books to jump into this. I laughed, cried, and just really loved this!

This was a reread. I listened to it on audio on a trip between home and school. It was just as good the second time around. It's a fun, summery thriller with a supernatural, serial killer adjacent twist. I recommend it as a great creepy read for the summer time.

This was everything I hoped it would be. Ashley Poston captures that magical feeling of being at a con surrounded by strangers who are family so well. I definitely cried several times from just how accurate it was. It feels authentic and fun. Plus the romances are adorable. I highly suggest reading this and Geekerella for some fluffy YA feels.

This is definitely in my top three favorite John Saul books now. It has a great mix of creepy, tension, and social commentary along with a couple of good twists. Pople hunting people in the tunnels below Manhattan is such a great set up!

This lands in the same place I find most Layman books: enjoyable but slightly cringey. I like his stuff for a quick, pulpy read but wouldn't recommend him to everyone. This one had some really good creep factor.

This was such a satisfying book. I love the prequel era so much and this delivered on what I wanted. The master and padawan relationship is so interesting to read about. The political intrigue was fun, and all the new characters were great. Claudia Gray writes Star Wars so masterfully!

1) I usually have them after a month of a lot of reading, which for me is 8 to 10 books in a month.
2) by watching a lot of TV until I'm burned out on that and ready for books again.
3) Camorr from Th Lies of Locke Lamota or fictional colleges
4) the cover of Green Rider by Kristen Britain or the Memoirs of Lady Trent covers

This was am intense read. The build of the tension is excellent. It's one of those can't look away from the car crash kind of books. Very creepy to watch unfold. The characters felt very real.

Shadow Hunted: An Urban Fantasy Novel | Rebecca Hamilton, Jasmine Walt

Panpan

I read this because of the cliffhanger st the end of the second book. The first half was very slow. It improved a good bit in the last hour or two of the book. The narrator is fantastic but the book was lackluster. This one ended with a smaller cliffhanger which is good because no other books have been published. Even so, I don't think I'll read more if it ever is published. This is a subpar urban fantasy that had the potential to be a lot better.

This is a decent urban fantasy. The mystery/plot hook in this one wasn't as strong as the first book. It's good for a commute or background while working since the plot is simple enough it doesn't matter if you zone out a bit.

This was phenomenal!!! I cried. A lot. The author really captures the feel of Padme's character, and all the insight into the handmaidens is amazing! Also all the politics (which is part of why I love the Prequels)! I wish this book had existed when I was younger. It's YA but reads with more weight than that. If you're a Star Wars fan but don't like YA, please still pick this one up! So much Prequel love!!

Some parts of this urban fantasy were pretty cliche but there were a few interesting twists on some ot the standard creatures and tropes. The writing isn't anything brilliant but it was fun as light read you didn't have to completely focus on. The narrator Angela Dawe is fantastic!

The third book in my reread and I'm still enjoying them! I liked getting to see more of Maggie Savage in this book, though I did find myself missing McCabe during the first big chunk of it. I think the mystery was clever in this one and keeps you second guessing yourself each time you think you know who the killer is.
