Star Wars, Aftermath; Chuck Wendig

I picked this up because I have enjoyed Wendig's other work and because it had a number of terrible reviews of the form "urgh, gay people". I haven't read any Star Wars tie-in novels in years and years and haven't watched any of the films since I saw Revenge of the Sith around the time it came out... so I'm sure many of the subtle background details entirely escaped me. There are indeed gay people, also women in positions of power and responsibility. The story is set after Return of the Jedi, and shows that Empires are not overthrown as easily as all that. I enjoyed it but expect that I would have enjoyed it more were I more saturated in the Star Wars universe.

Reading:

Never Let Me Go; Kazuo Ishiguro

I saw a trailer for the film on a DVD we rented and remembered I wanted to read the book... although I don't recall why. So far it is reasonably interesting.

To Read:
I've got a bunch of interesting looking things, I might try embarking on Mary Beard's SPQR which might take a while
