Finished reading William Shakespeare's Star Wars: The Phantom of Menace today. I love this series but, honestly, the changes Ian Doescher made for this one are inspired. The explanation for Jar Jar Binks is fantastic.

I just finished Star Wars: Jedi Academy - The Phantom Bully by Jeffrey Brown. I'm not going to lie, they are adorable freakin' books. I got the first two from my 2014 Reddit Graphic Novel exchange match and so I picked up an ARC of the third one online from Scholastic. It was great. Super cute.

 

Next up is In Another World, Maybe which looks like it's going to be good.

I wasn't too impressed with Tigerman but I only made it about a third of the way through so I'll probably give it a shot again later.

 

Currently reading the new Zodiac Legacy book, the first in a middle grade series that Stan Lee "wrote" along with another author. The dialogue is terrible but so far it's a pretty standard middle grade action book. It's also freakin' gorgeous. The cover design, page design, and illustrations are awesome. It's a good looking book if nothing else.

I highly recommend Pierce Brown's Red Rising and Golden Son. I know it might seem like some stereotypical YA series at first glance and that's how they originally marketed it until people realized it was a pretty solid science fiction series. It's now categorized as an adult science fiction series and the first book was #3 on Entertainment Weekly's 2014 Must List. It's pretty great.

 

I'm a youth library assistant so that's pretty much the only adult recommendation I have. :P
