So I knew that Cavan Scott’s entry in the High Republic series, The Rising Storm, was released today, and of course I had it on pre-order. I was expecting to get the book in a few days, as it took Light of the Jedi a few days after its release to get to my door. But I was surprised when I came home from work and there it was: a small, square Amazon box. The fact that it was the day after my birthday made it all the more special. Happy birthday to me!
Needless to say, I’ve begun reading it and am a few chapters in. Can’t wait to review this one.
In other book news, I just realized today that I had Justina Ireland’s middle grade book A Test of Courage on my Kindle. I had no idea it was there, or how it got there, lol, but I must have ordered it. I may never have known if I hadn’t clicked on an email in my inbox advertising some of the High Republic books on sale for $4.99 on Kindle. I figured I’d get that one for that price, but when I went to order it, it said “You Already Own This.” I do? I looked it up on my Kindle, and there it was, lol. I must have paid full price for it, then, but that’s okay. So two new High Republic books today!
And a few days ago, I also downloaded Alex Segura’s Poe Dameron: Free Fall on Kindle, since it, too, was only $4.99 (along with Queen’s Peril). Lots of Star Wars book sales these days (I’m like a kid in a candy store), especially on Kindle. I like to own the hard copies of the books, but I’ll start with the Kindle version without hesitation, and then upgrade to hard copy for the bookshelf collection.
So a lot of Star Wars book excitement this week, and I can’t wait to read them all!
Have you read any of these books? What did you think? Let me know and we’ll talk about it!
