This Weeks Question:

20th - 26th - What was the one time you thought the movie was better than the book? (submitted by Tomi @ A Bookworm's Guide To Life)

I Picked James And The Giant Peach. I'm a huge fan of the Disney movie but when I read the book and I was a little disappointed in it.

Rogue Reviews: Rogue One Rebel Dossier

This book is set up as a series of data transmissions between Mon Mothma , General Cracken and others as a way to give readers a background of the various Rogue One Characters. 

 it's a bittersweet book if read after Rogue One and a great resource for those of us Star Wars fans that want to know every little detail about the characters we love.

I really liked the hardcover format of the book and the information about all the major characters in the film. A great read.

Rogue Reviews : Secret Mission by Jason Fry

A new Star Wars movie in December also means new books! Thanks to Gift Cards I have been able to stack my shelves with more Star Wars books goodness! 

DK books does a great job with adapting books for younger readers. In this book Fry gives a breakdown of all the major events of Rogue One accompanied by some gorgeous photos from the movie. Jason also does a great job telling the the story in a way young readers can grasp and manages to convey more of the hopeful message of the film while downplaying the more darker bits.

A perfect book to add to a Star Wars fans shelf.
