Hello, and happy weekend, dear readers and Star Wars fans!
So I’ve finally done my first podcast, and it turned out…not bad, I guess, lol. I put it up last Tuesday, and I’ve had 14 listens so far. More than I thought! If you’ve taken a listen, I thank you. I’m going to do what I do with the blog, and just be patient with it: just keep doing what I love, putting it out there, and see what happens. I think it may naturally evolve over time, as the blog has, and hopefully for the better. So we’ll see. I’m planning on doing one a week; the next book I’ll cover is the Legends book Kenobi, by John Jackson Miller.
I’ve finally finished the Aftermath series and will be posting a review of Empire’s End sometime this week. It took me a long time to get through these books, even though I loved them. For one, they’re big books, at least for Star Wars, 400-500 pages each. And I’ve just been busy in every day life, too, as we all are. I’ve been trying to redo my daughter’s bedroom, and spent a day putting a bedside table together, lol. And I only made a couple of mistakes–the worst one was nailing the back onto it, and then realizing I put it on the wrong side…and then spending another hour pulling out all 20 tiny nails again. It was sweaty work, lol. And tomorrow I’ll be working on putting new curtains up. It’s an understatement to say that curtains aren’t my thing. Tacking up blankets was my usual go-to. But my girl deserves real curtains, and so curtains I shall put up, lol. Wish me luck.
At any rate, once I finished Aftermath, I picked up Clone Wars: Wild Space, by Karen Miller, a Legends book. This one focuses on a mission with Obi-Wan and Bail Organa, and I can’t wait to see what it’s all about. It takes place almost immediately after the Battle of Geonosis.
I’ll also be posting my usual review on the latest Bad Batch episode. These shows continue to be excellent, and it’s hard to wait for the next episode every week! I’m also about halfway done with Season two of Resistance, and I have to say it’s pretty darn good. The stakes have gotten higher, it’s starting to sync with the first two movies, and the characters have been challenged more, and so have gained a bit more depth. I’m actually kind of sad there are only two seasons.
That’s really about it this week. I haven’t had much time for any non-Star Wars indulgences, as I’ve been trying to do. Believe it or not, there are other movies and entertainments besides Star Wars I enjoy, lol. And I think it’s important to find balance, and look up and away from the galaxy far, far away once in a while so I don’t get completely swallowed up, lol. And so my dreams don’t start looking like this:
Oh well, maybe next week. I’d LOVE to watch Halston on Netflix (but does that count, as it has Ewan McGregor in it? Lol). What non-Star Wars stuff have you been watching? Let me know in the comments!
