What is everyone reading?
“If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.” ― Stephen KingI just thought I'd start a thread to see what everyone is reading. One of my reading goals for this year is to re-read the whole New Jedi Order series (sorry Corran). I read a lot ofnon-fiction so I want to balance the heavy stuff with more light escapism. I last read the NJO books about 15 years(or more) ago and its interesting to see how my perspective has changed. I forgot how brutal they are! I'm enjoying them though, they have alot more action than some of the other old SW novels I've re-read recently.
The translation of the title would be "Cut off". Story is about a forensics doctor who finds a clue in a corpse that his daughter is kidnapped by a psychopath. And that psycho sends him messages in corpses now. The story also plays part on the island Helgoland (where I spent my summer vacation last year and reason why I bought the book), while a winter storm, when the island is cut off from the mainland.
Also, with the Disney theme parks Star Wars exhibit opening soon, you're going to see Galaxy's Edge literature pushed hard (already appears in Thrawn: Alliances). It looks like the planet Batuu and Black Spire Outpost is going to be the epicenter for all sorts of action.
From the trailers it looks pretty good. They actually filmed it at a deactivated RBMK reactor in Lithuania, too.
