It seems that no matter how many books I’m able to read, I’m just as easily able to add to the stack of to-read books. I’m really looking forward to delving into my latest additions.
One of them is Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary. One of the things that I loved about TRoS is that it added a wealth of new lore. So much, in fact, that there’s not enough time to explain a lot of it in depth during the movie. The visual dictionary does this in great detail, not only with physical things like droids and ships, but also in much of the exciting new ideas and revelations revealed in the film. I’ve already used it as a reference quite a bit and have really enjoyed it.
The other is Star Wars: The Secrets of the Jedi. It’s written from the perspective of Luke Skywalker and sort of reads as his journal on his research of the Jedi. Not only is this just cool (Luke has been my favorite since childhood), but it also sheds some new light and confirms some things that we may have only assumed took place over the years between Return of The Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker.
I’ll try and post final reviews (including content and the nice quality printing and binding) once I’ve finished them.
