After a lot of thought, I've decided to take a break from blogging for the foreseeable future. With my little C creeping its way back into my life and possible long term treatment now, I need to take a couple of things off my plate for the time being, and the blog is going to be one of those things. As it is, it felt like it was becoming more of a chore than anything else. I need my reading time to be more enjoyable right now, more of the escape that I really need, and what I don't need is the little voice in the back of my head telling me how many reviews I'm behind and trying to come up with what I need to say about the book.

I simply want to read.

I'll more than likely occasionally post on here what I've been reading, and if there is something that really blows my mind, I'll probably have more to say about it and may write up a proper post, but for right now, things are going to be very quiet around here.

As always, happy reading!

I will continue to blog according to my health and ability, and connecting my posts thru Goodreads, so please be patient if things get quiet around here again this year.

I am happy to report that my bone marrow transplant was a success and that I'm feeling more like myself everyday. That said, I'm going to try to start blogging a little more frequently, but please bare with me as I still continue to recover.

Star Wars: Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel by James Luceno

Catalyst - A Rogue One Novel Catalyst - A Rogue One Novel by James Luceno
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Finished reading the last third of this in one sitting after listening to the audiobook version to start with, and while I think the book is well-written, I still believe that this "essential" prequel to the movie got lost in the minute details behind the design/construction of the Death Star weapon. As I saw Rogue One before finishing the book, I didn't really feel the need/felt the desire to finish the book, so I basically skimmed that last third. For diehard fans that need to read ALL THE THINGS, this is obviously a good book for them, but I think most people will have no problem going into the movie without losing anything for having not read this book.
