‘Light of the Jedi’: 144 pages In and Now I’m Loving This Book!

Yesterday morning I began to read Light of the Jedi and wasn’t that fond of the book. Then, after taking a small break, I started reading it again last night and suddenly I was beaming with joy. I was blown away by the sharp contrast between the Jedi by the time of the prequel trilogy who had truly become hypocritical warmongers whose rebuttal for every disagreement ended in violence. The Jedi of the High Republic truly feel like guardians of peace and justice; powerful men and women whose selflessness is on full display for the galaxy when the Great Disaster happens.

I found myself just overwhelmed by how happy the book made me feel. I’m already beginning to love these new Jedi and if we ever get to see them in animation or live-action one day I’m going to flip! So yes, I was talking smack yesterday but that was yesterday. Today, I cannot wait to delve deeper into this story and get even more invested in these characters.

And The Nihil are actually pretty scary, lol. I thought they wouldn’t be but yeah, I have a feeling they’re going to be quite the opponent for the Jedi.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

‘Light of the Jedi’: I’m 37 Pages In and I’ve Got Mixed Feelings

Yesterday I finally got Light of the Jedi and I was excited but nervous. Would the first novel in this new era of Star Wars live up to the hype or would it underwhelm me like so many other Star Wars novels have in the past?

I only managed to get 37 pages into the book yesterday and I was appalled by how bland the writing was. Charles Soule is a great comic writer but his turn at novelizations has left me a bit unimpressed. The Jedi that I have met (Jedi Masters Avar Kriss and Loden Greatstorm and padawan Bell Zettifar) are pretty cool but overall, it’s just…blah.

I’m hoping the actual story makes up for the mediocre writing because, as of right now, this is not a great start to a new Disney era of Star Wars.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.

I’ve Got ‘Light of the Jedi’!

I’ve been a bit obsessed with Star Wars novels for the last few years and the newest novel I’ve been waiting to get my hands on was Light of the Jedi.

At first, I wasn’t very interested in the new High Republic era to be frank but when I learned that we were getting a Disney+ series featured during the end of the High Republic era called The Acolyte I realized that I had to get into this story. So…here we are.

I have not read the book yet but I’m hoping it lives up to the hype. The Jedi can be so fascinating, if written thoughtfully, and to think that these stories feature a whole new range of diverse, powerful Jedi Masters, knights, and padawans is very, very intriguing.

I’ll be sharing my further thoughts about this book tomorrow because I’m totally about to binge-read this novel. Hopefully I’ll be writing an enthusiastic post…🤞

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
