    I’m hoping that “Santa” drops this book down my chimney this Christmas. ;) I got the Art of The Last Jedi book back in January and I really enjoyed it. (Might need to reread it now that I think about it...)

    I read Phasma like a month ago and hadn’t really read any books since. It wasn’t until last week that I started and finished another book, From A Certain Point of View. Phasma was decent in my opinion. I liked the insight into her character, I enjoyed the character of Captain Cardinal, and I loved all of the First Order stuff in it. It felt too stretched out and I got sick of Parnassos.



    From A Certain Point of View
    had some really good stories, as well as some really bad ones. Off the top of my head, I really liked the Wuher, Model Nodes, Long Snout, Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan, Yoda, Lando, and Biggs Darklighter short stories. Some of the ones that I didn’t care for were the Mouse Droid, Dianoga, and TD-110, as well as some of the Tatooine based ones that wore out their welcome. They were becoming as coarse, rough, and irritating as the sand itself. Overall, I enjoyed it.



    Next, I’m not really sure what I’ll be reading. (I may need to make a trip to Half Price Books soon.) Some of the main books that I want to pick up soon are the novelizations for The Last Jedi, Solo, and the Original Trilogy, the canon novels of Leia: Princess of Alderaan, Legends of Luke Skywalker, Most Wanted, and Thrawn: Alliances, and some more Legends books, including Shadows of the Empire. I also look forward to Master and Apprentice and Queen’s Shadow coming out next year!

    i found Lost Stars to be wildly overwritten. it could have easily been 100 pages shorter at least.
    that said, it's worth the journey ~ the ending is phenomenal.
    my advice: skim all the she thought, she felt, he thought, he felt. there's just a lot of redundancy in the telling.
    the story is really with the showing in this one.

    Found "glauben du musst" (believe you must) in our library a book about star wars and christian faith.
    It has yoda on the cover and and it has 8 chapters numbered IV,V,VI,I,II,III,VII,VIII. that alone makes it worth giving a try.

    A collection of Asimov's short stories and essays about robots. I've read a lot of the short stories in other collections (its been a while in some cases) but not all, such as the title story which was written specifically for this collection. Like the companion book "Robot Dreams" it contains excellent cover art and illustrations by Ralph McQuarrie... who Star Wars fans know well.

    Finished A Reaper at the Gates! It was...good? I enjoyed reading it, but it felt like it took too long to get through; and I can't tell if that was simply my reading frequency or the book itself. Overall, if you like love triangles (I VERY MUCH DON'T*), you'll enjoy this book. I'll read the next one, but that's equally because of the Sunk Cost Fallacy and my interest (low, but not low enough to quit, which engages said fallacy).

    Next is:

    *But I do have a weakness for shipping, and my ship was not very present in this book. The main ship is predictable and frankly not as well done IMO.
