Aftermath: Star Wars: Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens
by Chuck Wendig
Star Wars is back, and respected sci-fi author Wendig begins the path to the new movies with this book. Resetting the post-Jedi canon is a bold choice for Lucasfilm, but Wendig does a great job putting us back into the exciting universe of Star Wars and recapturing what made Star Wars great.
Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things
by Jenny Lawson
The next book from blogger extraordinaire Jenny Lawson (a.k.a. “The Bloggess”) is a follow-up to Let’s Pretend This Never Happened. With the same wry fatalism and sense of humor, Lawson paints the portrait of her life of domestic insanity and emotional turmoil with skill and not a few taxidermied animals. Hilarious!
