Biannual Bibliothon Day 2- Review of Princess Leia: Royal Rebel by Calliope Glass

So the Biannual Bibliothon is usually a Youtube exclusive Challeng, but they have branched out to include challenges for Instagram and Bloggers as well.  You can find out information on the reading challenges and video challenges on the Biannual Bibliothon channel and the Instagram and Blogger challenges are being posted @BiannualBibliothon.

Each day there are Booktube Challenges, Blog Challenges and Instagram Challenges.  So I will have extra posts all this week (and I will try to participate in the Instagram Challenges as well @Easternsunset9 ).  I thought I would also take a brief moment to update you each day of the readathon.  

Update: Due to having to pack up and then drive the 5:30 hours home from vacation yesterday I didn't get any reading done.  Tonight though I do plan on either starting Flames in the Mist or  Wonder Woman.

Today's Biannual Bibliothon Blog Challenge is hosted by Miss Sassy Kassie and the challenge for today is to write a book review.  

Synopsis: "Who is Princess Leia? How did a princess become a rebel leader? And what happened to her after the Empire was defeated? In this biography--complete with black-and-white illustrations, timelines, and character profiles--young readers will delight in learning the complete history of Star Wars' royal rebel."

My Review: Being a huge Star Wars fan, I am always looking for a little extra of the story in my life. I picked this one up for my library, and potentially Munchkin. It is a pretty easy read for kids who are just starting to get into chapter books with less illustrations. I like how it gave a nice timeline of Princess Leia's life through the whole saga. There were also illustrations and facts about some of the main players and characters connected with Leia throughout the stories/movies as well. It made for a fun read, maybe a little more geared towards young girls but obviously boy fans will also enjoy it.

My Rating: I enjoyed having Leia's story fleshed out a bit, and while you still got all the fun  Star Wars story, there was a little something extra.  I think this will be great for young fans and I hope there are more backstories for the other characters too.  I give it a rating of Four Paws.


  1. Nice review! I am obsessed with Star Wars. Adding this book to my TBR!

    1. I love finding books about Star Wars and especially for younger readers. My son isn't quite old enough for the movies but he has enjoyed many books so far and is already a fan!

    1. Star Wars is the best! So many fans out there and it is so fun to connect several interests around one fandom.
