Hello my friends, and happy weekend!
I’m continuing my reading of the Legends book Dark Force Rising, by Timothy Zahn. I’ve been enjoying the series, and find it interesting that Zahn often shows Thrawn through other people’s eyes. Here in Legends, it’s through Captain Pellaon; in canon, at least in the first book (which I only half read) it was through Eli Vanto. I’m not sure if this is true in any of the other canon Thrawn books; anyone know if we ever get a Thrawn point of view? Just curious.
I’ve received my copy of Queen’s Hope, and have started reading it. I’ve always liked these books; some people complain they’re just overly long character studies on Padme and her handmaidens. Maybe, but that’s what I like. Star Wars books are fun, and half the fun are the battles and the action, but sometimes it’s nice just to get into a character’s head and life for awhile. Sometimes I get a little tired of all the techno-babble and military strategy and whatnot. Give me Padme and her girlfriends and relationships and emotions and you know, girl stuff for awhile, lol. It’s even got pink binding! I love it. As for the plot, I just started it so I don’t have much to go on, and honestly…I don’t care, lol. Padme and Anakin are getting married, that’s all I need to know. I’ll give a more thorough summary when I finish it, I promise.
I’m continuing with my Rebels rewatch, and recently began Season 4. But I know what’s coming concerning a particularly favorite Jedi Knight, and I’m dreading it already. 😦 But it’s also a beautiful thing, and S4 is fantastic. The lothwolves are my favorite Star Wars animals, I think.
I watched Episode 2 of Moon Knight, and it answered a few questions, while bringing up even more. There’s a LOT going on in this show already, and it’s a bit confusing, but I am enjoying it. It’s crazy and different and I love Oscar Isaac, so I’m in. I had planned on writing my thoughts for each episode in a separate weekly post, but as always, my plans change, lol.
Basically, I’ll be going back to just my weekly Entertainment Update post on the weekends. I have other projects I want to work on, namely drawing and fanfiction. It figures; just as all the new books and shows and movies will be coming out, with so much to write about in the blog, I veer into a new direction. Oh well. I will be touching on all of them in the weekly post.
I’m particularly excited about the drawing. I used to love drawing years ago, but decided to focus more on writing and let the drawing go. But my interest has been reignited lately. I’ll be honest, I’ve been seeing so much Star Wars fan art and loving it, that in my secret heart I’ve been thinking, I want to do that, too! So I’m going to. I have to go back to the basics first, of course, and practice, practice, practice. But someday I’ll be ready, and I’ll honor my love of Star Wars in images as well as words.
Anyway, that’s what’s been going on this week. What’s been entertaining you? Let me know in the comments and we’ll talk about it!
