Star Wars: Alphabet Squadron – Alexander Freed

Since the formation of the new canon, Lucasfilm has kept a pretty tight lid on the events that take place between the original trilogy and the sequel trilogy era. I’ve been reading/reviewing the new novels by publication date, and so far only the Aftermath trilogy and Bloodlines have taken place during this period. Since there’s …

Star Wars: Master & Apprentice – Claudia Gray

While I can certainly appreciate Star Wars novels that focus on some of the more mundane characters and locations in the galaxy, my favorite books always tend to be about the people and places made popular by the films. Especially when the book provides a lot of backstory. For this reason, I was very excited …

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: 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 …

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 …

Dungeons & Dragons: Eberron – Rising from the Last War

Wizards of the Coast is back with another campaign setting book for 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons! And while it’s not the Dragonlance setting I’ve personally been waiting for, it’s still a pretty welcome addition to the 5E family. This time, WotC has returned to Eberron! In case you’re unfamiliar, Eberron is a campaign setting …

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 …

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 …

‘Salem’s Lot – Stephen King

Last Halloween I posted a review for Stephen King’s very first novel; Carrie. At the time, I mentioned that I would make it a goal to read and review every one of his books in order of publication. Now, I realize that was quite some time ago. But as you know, I’ve had a lot …
