Can't Wait for . . . The Empire Strikes Back From a Certain Point of View


Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hoste at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. If you're continuing with WOW, feel free to link those up as well! Find out more here.

You guys! Seriously, I had no idea this was coming but I am beyond excited!! I have always been a huge fan of the original Star Wars movies, but I held off reading the first From a Certain Point of View book because I was worried about it not living up to the movies.  Little did I know how it would change my view even on the movie! I love the little background stories of the side characters in the movie and the way the stories integrate so seamlessly. I love watching A New Hope and noticing more of those characters, it adds so much to the experience.  I am so excited to read this one, and with all those amazing authors too!

Release Date: November 10, 2020

Synopsis: "From a Certain Point of View strikes back! Celebrate the legacy of the groundbreaking Star Wars sequel with this exciting reimagining of the timeless film.

On May 21, 1980, Star Wars became a true saga with the release of The Empire Strikes Back. In honor of the fortieth anniversary, forty storytellers recreate an iconic scene from The Empire Strikes Back, through the eyes of a supporting character, from heroes and villains to droids and creatures. From a Certain Point of View features contributions by bestselling authors and trendsetting artists."
