Yesterday I saw Star Wars Force Awakens for the 4th time, so you could say I liked it! It’s the Star Wars movie we’ve all been waiting for. It also didn’t explain everything that happened before the events of the movie; nor, did it hesitate to leave questions unanswered. This weekend my friend Jeremy, Abby and I are going to be talking Force Awakens like we have the previous 6 films over on my youtube channel. To prepare for that discussion I decided to read (or listen too) the novelization of the movie. So far there isn’t a ton of new information but there are little details I’m getting out of it that I didn’t notice in the movie. The book is written b Alan Dean Foster and if you liked Force Awakens I recommend reading it. The audiobook is excellently done.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm.
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page.
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers.
Here’s my teaser from of Star Wars: The Force Awakens at 1 hr 10 min:
“She tried to think of something else. Something that had changed. Something that seemed different- if only to keep her mind from atrophying. But there was nothing. Nothing was different. Nothing was new. On Jakku things never changed”
I actually love that quote because I think it is a side of Rey we don’t get to see in the movie. She’s restless and bored, and I got more tired in the movie. That’s why reading these types of books are fun. You get to relive a favorite movie while adding on new details only in the book.
My brother and I talk all about Force Awakens if you are curious for our review. I would love if you checked it out and gave it a thumbs up. Share what you thought of the movie.
What are you reading right now? Anything you are anticipating in 2016?
I’d love to convince other readers to do the Tuesday Teasers because I am always looking for good book recommendations. Give it a try!
