Retro Reviews: ‘Bloodline’ by Claudia Gray

September 22, 2020 at 5:35 am | Posted in Books, Random House, Regular Feature, Retro Reviews, Reviews, Star Wars, Star Wars Books | 1 Comment

Bloodline by Claudia Gray, is an adult canon novel set roughly six years before the events of The Force Awakens. It was released in May of 2016.

I remember loving this book when it first came out. I was still inexperienced in reading books and so it took me a while to get into it. But when you combine Claudia Gray, politics, and Star Wars, you are sure to have a great book.

The first thing I’d like to point out is that Claudia Gray absolutely nails the character of Leia. All of her lines, her actions, her motivations, and her feelings felt completely in tune with what we see in the movies, and Claudia just makes me feel so bad for all the bad things in her life. Despite all of the good in her life, Leia has one of the most tragic stories in Star Wars, and this book shows how difficult public service can be.

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “What is Home”

September 15, 2020 at 9:44 am | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “What is Home” by The Black Crowes.

When most people think of The Black Crowes, they think of “She Talks to Angels” or “Hard to Handle”, but in 2009 they put out an album called Before the Frost…Until the Freeze. On that album, they strayed away from their typical sound for something completely different. Half of the album is almost country. One of my favorites from the album, and indeed, one of my favorites from their entire discography, is “What is Home”.
