reasons to read the Jedi Apprentice series

*O-baby-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn’S amazing jedi space adventures?? Is that not enough reason OK

*Obi-Wan is young and reckless and going way too far and has a passionate sense of justice only equaled by his desire for people to just have better manners darn it 

*Qui-Gon is literally the most stubborn human in the galaxy and he gets called out on it ALL THE TIME

*Ladies?? An awesome new female character around every corner. Miners, healers, politicians, mad scientists, serene jedi masters, caustic jedi padawans, gentle jedi initiates, cooks, revolutionaries, mechanics, bounty hunters. 

*Obi-Wan has a new little friend on every planet. “I don’t know how to people,” he grumbles as he makes a new friend for life. “Why can’t I be at ease in every situation like Qui-Gon is?” He bemoans, trailing disreputable new bosom bros behind him like a train.

*“The Council likes to be presented with freshly overturned governments more than revolutions in progress,” Qui-Gon blithely assures his dubious apprentice.

*no but really tho they never met an oppressive government they didn’t try to topple

*all the Jedi world building? If you gave ever wondered a thing about old Republic jedi, Jude Watson probably wondered too and wrote an answer

*They are basically printed novel size gen fanfics, so many tropes, so much peril and angst and teamwork and partners being concerned for each other

*made for kids, so the writing is not bad but it’s quite simple you can tear through one of these babies in like an hour or less

*“Not so! I lie!”

*Qui-Gon Jinn holding babies and making faces at small children

*Obi-Wan Kenobi the industrial-sized salt dispenser 

*Seriously just read them if you love Obi-Wan you should have read them already if you love Qui-Gon then these books and Liam Neeson are probably why

I WOULD NEVER WANT TO DESTROY A COVER, BUT THIS HAPPENED ON ACCIDENT & THE BOOK BECAME MORE BEAUTIFUL. What started out as an accidental tear turned into my favorite cover. Well… now I have to find a way to get another book, since I liked the original cover.

A strange warmth falls over me, a warmth like the sun though we are deep underground. It’s as familiar to me as my own lightning, reaching out to envelop me in an embrace we can’t have. Even though they call Cal my enemy, even though they fear him, I let his warmth fall on my skin, and I let his eyes burn into mine. 

Our shared memories flash before me, parading every second of our time together. But now our friendship is gone, replaced by the one thing we still have in common. 

Our hatred for Maven.

I don’t need to be a whisper to know we share a thought.

I will kill him.

ten series or books: red queen by

“Cal and Maven are deadly creatures, soldiers. But their battle isn’t just on the lines. It’s here, in a palace, on the broadcasts, in the heart of every person they rule. They will rule, not just by right of a crown but by might. Strength and power.”

Still obsessing over my day I spent with my mom on Mother’s Day. Not everyone is blessed with a mom like mine, and I cherish every moment I have with her :) This photo was also taken at Victoria Beach. I brought my copy of #ACOMAF with me, and it happened to be perfect. The old abandoned “light house” made out of rocks reminded me of the Fae world. The beach is simply magical, and I could be there for hours admiring the beauty in it.. Also, what better way is there than bringing a book to something beautiful?
