Star Wars: Queen’s Shadow – E.K. Johnston

When selecting a Star Wars novel, there’s certainly a wide range for fans to choose from. There’s books that focus on nearly every character, setting, and generation. Today, I’m going to take a look at a novel that focuses on one of the more neglected characters in Star Wars literature, Padmé Amidala. Despite being a …

Star Wars: Thrawn – Alliances – Timothy Zahn

Fresh off the heels of my review for Star Wars: Most Wanted, I’m back again to share my thoughts on another Star Wars novel. This time I’m taking a look at the sequel to Timothy Zahn’s excellent reintroduction of Grand Admiral Thrawn, a book called Thrawn: Alliances. Just to recap a bit, in the last …

Star Wars: Most Wanted – Rae Carson

It’s been almost a year since I last posted a review for a Star Wars novel. If you want to know the truth, it’s because the last one I read was so terrible that it took me this long to build up the desire to read another. Now, when it comes to Star Wars novels …

Rage – Stephen King (as Richard Bachman)

It’s October! That means it’s time for my annual Stephen King book review. In keeping with my tradition of reviewing King’s books in chronological order, I find myself at an interesting point. So far, I’ve reviewed Carrie, ‘Salem’s Lot, and The Shining – the first three books authored by Stephen King. The next book released …

Dungeons & Dragons: Mythic Odysseys of Theros

It’s been a few months since I’ve made a Dungeons & Dragons related post. But I’m back today to discuss one of the latest D&D releases, The Mythic Odysseys of Theros. Now, this is a book that I wasn’t really sure about before I actualyl got my hands on it. The marketing materials that came …

Star Wars: Last Shot – Daniel Jose Older

When it comes to Star Wars novels, there’s a number of really great books out there. This was true with the old “Legends” line, and it’s still true today with the new canon. But just like anything else, with the good there’s always some, well… not so good. This book, Last Shot, is one of …

Star Wars: Phasma – Delilah S. Dawson

A few months ago, I promised to deliver more reviews on Star Wars novels. Of course, before sharing my thoughts on a book, I make sure to read the entire story from start to finish. Sadly, I don’t get as much reading time as I’d like these days. But, I try make it a point …

Star Wars: Battlefront II – Inferno Squad – Christie Golden

So, I obviously fell short on my goal to completely catch up with all of the new-canon Star Wars novels in time for release of Episode IX. But in retrospect, I think that is actually going to work out just fine. Now that the future of Star Wars cinema has reached uncharted territory, the books …

The Shining – Stephen King

Continuing with my tradition of reviewing a Stephen King novel in time for Halloween, this year I set aside some time to revisit a real classic, The Shining. This was King’s third full-length novel, and by the time this book was published it seems he had fully embraced the label of “horror author”. In case …

Star Wars: Cobalt Squadron – Elizabeth Wein

Wow. It’s actually been over a year since I reviewed a Star Wars novel. I feel ashamed. But, in truth, I just have not had a lot of free time. Thankfully, my schedule has normalized somewhat and I’m now back to a semi-normal schedule. So, I guess I’ll pick up where I left off – …
