"And when we're both alseep
I'll kiss you on the mouth
Later on the couch I spend the night
When we're both asleep
I'll crawl into your room
Or maybe I'll just stare up at your light
Well I bet I know exactly what that's like
Yeah I bet I know exactly what that's like" #superchunk #onthemouth ⚔
Day 26 of the #grimdragon Greatest Hits challenge hosted by myself & my friend Corey @grimdark_dad. "Shitter was full!" Disappointing books!
I think Corey & I covered the two biggest disappointments for The Grimdragons as a team, based on previous expectations!
You know when you are jonesing for something satisfying? Something hearty like lasagna, stew, fajitas, nachos.. ALL OF THE COMFORT FOOD IN YOUR FACE! Instead, you end up with spaghetti. Not even carby delicious spaghetti, but the far less substantial spaghetti squash. Now, there's nothing wrong with spaghetti squash. It's fine. There are a few moments where it feels like maybe it will fill you up.. but you can't help but think of that plate of nachos you could have had. When you finish your meal you are left wanting something MORE.
Thrawn was a lot like that. I try not to go into a book with unreasonably high expectations, but admittedly I expected this to be amazing because I love the original trilogy so goddamn much. He is one of my favorite Star Wars characters! Yeah, I know. I have a lot of favorite Star Wars characters. MY STAR WARS LOVE RUNS DEEP, OKAY?! I JUST GET SO FUCKING EXCITED FOR NEW STAR WARS BOOKS! Plus, Timothy Zahn returned! He is often regarded as one of the most brilliant Star Wars writers. EXPECTATIONS HIGH, THEY WERE. It just.. didn't go anywhere. I read it. I grumbled a bit. Then I moved on.
I get major Jason Isaacs vibes from this cover! Not how I normally think of Thrawn but I'm into it 💁
