Canto Bight (Star Wars): Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi | Mira Grant, Rae Carson, John Jackson Miller, Saladin Ahmed

The audio book is awesome! Really, really well done and you get the whole Star Wars feeling with it. Even though I liked all the stories I guess my favourites were “Rules of the Game“ and “Hear Nothing, See Nothing, Say Nothing“.

My #JanuaryTBR. A lot of carry overs from December:

1 for #StarWarsBuddyRead
2 for #LMPBC
2 for #OokBOokClub

1 for #FellowshipOfTolkien
1 for #Reading1001
1 for #AuthorOftheMonth
1 New Release

and 3 Series I‘m STILL working on catching up on #SeriesRead

And as always, whatever doesn‘t get read moves into my February TBR pile. 😂

Crazeedi looks like you have a list of group reads like I do!😉 2w
Daisey The Grass is Singing is on my January list for #Reading1001, but so far down that I don‘t think I will be able to get to it. 2w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Daisey I don‘t know if I‘ll get to it either. I‘ve been really slacking with Reading1001 lately. 2w

Star Wars: Resistance Reborn | Rebecca Roanhorse
post image
Pickpick

Full of some wonderful Poe & Finn adventure, as well as some Leia (who I will sorely miss as I watch the last film, but it was great seeing that character alive & fighting in the novels yet) in the mix with popular book characters that we haven‘t seen since their individual books. Such a great book for fans of the movies and books... pulling together a bunch of the novel characters into the larger story about rebuilding the resistance.

Star Wars: Resistance Reborn | Rebecca Roanhorse
post image

This book is such a good fan book as surviving resistance members fan out to enlist and track down old allies. It‘s absolutely great to hear about and from characters we haven‘t heard from since their storylines in other books in the series. But when Snap (Aftermath) has to break the news to Wedge Antilles about all his former friends from his rebel days that were lost in The Last Jedi, and especially his good friend Luke, I seriously welled up!

Just a reminder #StarWarsBuddyRead

Here‘s where we‘ve been, and Canto Bight is what‘s next for January 2020! Don‘t forget to put your copy on hold at your library.

If anyone wants to be added to or taken off from the tagging list, please let me know:
 @CSeydel @alicia @bookandcat @DivaDiane @ElyssaReads @NovelGirl82 @wtimblin @trioxin_sematary @Shadowfat @callielafleur @annkuch13 @PSreads73 @SenatorMothma @InLibrisVeritas @Andrew65

NovelGirl82 Thanks for keeping me on track, Melissa!! Do we have a bunch left after Canto Bight? 2mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @NovelGirl82 Easily enough for all of 2020. Inferno Squad, Phasma, Cobalt Squadron, the Aftermath Trilogy, the new Galaxy‘s Edge books (I think there are 2 currently), Alphabet Squadron, Force Collector, Dooku, Tarkin, and whatever they put out in 2020. So far, I believe I read about a Thrawn Ascendancy series coming, a follow up to Queen‘s Shadow titled Queen‘s Peril, and a sequel to Alphabet Squadron titled Shadow Fall. So whatever we vote for 2mo
NovelGirl82 @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Awesome! I‘m excited to continue! Hopefully, I‘ll be able to contribute to discussions more this year. Being back in school may keep me a little behind, but one of my goals is to keep up with this buddy read. Another one is to catch up on Fever series! (edited) 2mo

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @NovelGirl82 it‘s definitely hard when you‘re in school, lots of other things that need read. Well it‘s a good time to catch up there, she has a new one coming out in 2020 too. 2mo
Andrew65 Thanks for this, I look forward to joining the Reads and discussions, even if 20 months late 😂, I was lost in the universe! The Force certainly wasn‘t with me. (edited) 2mo
DivaDiane I really wish I could keep up with the reading group, but I notice that I haven‘t read any of the books since Ahsoka! Also I‘m not using Litsy anymore (it was too all consuming, so while I didn‘t delete it, I‘m not participating), so I guess what I‘m trying to say is maybe it‘s time to remove me from the tag list. Thanks! Enjoy the rest of the reading plan! 2mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @DivaDiane I knew I hadn‘t seen you around lately. I‘m glad everything‘s ok and it‘s just you‘re stepping back. I‘ll miss our discussions, and If you ever want to join back in, just let me know.... take care of yourself. 2mo
GrilledCheeseSamurai Somehow, I didn't know this was a thing. I'm staring Resistance Reborn tonight. Guess I just missed it. Funny enough - I almost bought Canto Bight today so I'm thinking I could join in on that come January. 🤘 1mo
Jari-chan Just found the audio book of Canto Bight, so I would like to join your group for the January buddy read and hopefully for the coming books as well 😊 1mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @GrilledCheeseSamurai Sounds good! I enjoyed Resistance Reborn, hopefully you will to. 1mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Jari-chan Please, we‘d love to have you join us! 1mo

Just a reminder we are wrapping up November‘s read and heading into the new Resistance Reborn for December.

It picks up shortly after the survivors flee on the Falcon, and I have every intention of finishing it BEFORE I see the new, and last (that still sounds wrong), movie.

#StarWarsBuddyRead

Feel free to join us!

Andrew65 How did I miss these! 2mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Andrew65 I don‘t know! Do you want me to add you? 2mo

Andrew65 Yes please. How long has it been going? 2mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Andrew65 About a year and a half. 😂. I send out a survey monkey on Litsy and pick the next book from the ones we haven‘t read yet. January is Canto Bight, by the way, if you want to put in your library hold. 2mo
Andrew65 @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Wow! I really do have my head buried in the sand. 😳😴🤯 Thanks I will search it out. 2mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Andrew65 It‘s easy to miss, there is SO much to see on Litsy every day, it‘s impossible to see it all. 2mo
bookandcat Been waiting on the library for over a month or two now 😬 2mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @bookandcat I knew this would be a hard one since it just came out. If you have Scribd or want to use their free trial, they do have the audiobook on their site. 2mo
NovelGirl82 Oh, I forgot this was December‘s! I‘ll have to get it with one of my Audible credits! I can‘t believe this will be the last movie. 2mo

You‘d think reading it after seeing the movie would be boring, but you always get a bit more into their inner thoughts, motives, decision making...that for me always makes the story richer. Plus they always manage to include a few things that never come across on film, like BB8‘s discussions with Poe‘s ship Black One (which is as know-it-all as C3PO and totally vain), or R2‘s discussions with the multiple personality Falcon.
