DNF
O Vento Assobiando nas Gruas - Lídia Jorge

I tried,I honestly tried. 100 pages in and I could see no discernible plot around this book,nothing to hold me to the story. So I gave up. I have way too many books in my to-read list to hold myself to such a boring one. I might try again later,just not now.

 

P.s: The cover was gorgeous,which is why I brought it. So one bonus star for cover art. Also half a star because the writing is decent,even though there wasn't much content at all.

Title: Star Nomad
Series: Fallen Empire #1
Author: Lindsay Buroker
Rating: 2.5 of 5 Stars
Genre: SFF
Pages: 253
Format: Kindle Digital edition





 

Synopsis:


Captain Alisa Marchenko has been left behind on a pohdunk world, recovering from her injuries. Inexplicably, there are NO armed force bases on the world or anyone she can turn to to return home. So she is forced to link up with some strange mechanic lady, find an old abandoned spacefreighter, take on passengers AND figure out how to work with an Imperial cyborg who is camping out in her chosen spaceship.

All Alisa wants is to get to her home planet and see her daughter again. But she can't do that while she has beefcake all over the place and pecs galore to ogle. Poor Alisa. She is so insecure and unable to take care of herself.

My Thoughts: 


I went into this thinking it was going to be a cool SF adventure. It was billed as "for fans of Star Wars or Firefly". That should have been more than enough warning.

What I got was a story about a woman who is insecure, incapable of taking care of herself and obsessed with her imaginary relationship with a former enemy soldier. And I mean, totally imaginary. Oh, and don't forget his pecs.

If you like a romance book, without sex, and wrapped in a Science Fiction wrapper, this is the series for you. Considering there are at least 8 books, I guess "somebody" is buying these. Maybe people who like pecs.

Review of Kanan: The Last Padawan by Greg Weisman
Star Wars: Kanan: The Last Padawan Vol. 1 - Marvel Comics

This is officially the first graphic novel I have ever read. It is basically a collection of the first six comic books that tell the Star Wars story of the character Kanan from Star Wars Rebels. It was really quick to read, and I enjoyed finding out a bit of the back story of Kanan. The artwork was impressive and I had to keep reminding myself to slow down and enjoy it while reading. I also like that it will be something I can share with my kids.

Review: Poe Dameron vol. 1: Black Squadron by Charles Soule and Phil Noto
Star Wars: Poe Dameron, Vol. 1: Black Squadron - Charles Soule,Phil Noto

Enjoyed this utterly, the art is astounding and Soule's work on Star Wars has been consistently enjoyable. The story is action packed, a little on the camp side, giving it a feel of James Bond in space with the nicest hero you're ever gonna meet. But it also left me feeling sort of empty. The characterization is extremely thin, and relies on your knowledge of the actor and their charisma. It makes me think of the Lando comic, also written by Soule, there's almost the same caper sort of feel to it, except that it has none of the depth. I'm going to continue reading, but as someone who lied Poe, and longer for him to have a bigger role in the movies, this doesn't really satisfy, because you don't learn anything more about him than you did in his, like, ten minute screentime in The Force Awakens.

Review: "Fierce & Fabulous" (Sassy Boyz, #1) by Elizabeth Varlet
Fierce & Fabulous - Elizabeth Varlet

*** DNF at 61% because of CHEATING! ***

 

Note: the cheating wasn't completed, but only because Ansel's hookup freaked out when he realized that Ansel was a guy. Ansel would have totally gone through with it though.

 

So fuck this shit!
