My Inner Wookie: Shadows of the Empire Part 1


When I digress into the terrifying mind of a 13 year old, the thing I most remember about the book Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire is…sex. For those who have read the book, you’ll probably understand. For those who haven’t, don’t worry. There will be an explanation in the full recap/review of the book up later this week.

In the meantime, while I gather all of my thoughts together, I decided to give you a bit of a sneak peek of what’s in store through a little game of Who Said It: 50 Shades of Grey or Shadows of the Empire.  Highlight the answer area after each question to see how you did.

(Full disclosure, I’ve not read 50 Shades of Grey so all of these are from the world of the internet. Also, I’ve changed the pronouns so POV won’t give anything away.)

Quote 1

“His touch was electric; it sent a charge through [her] as if [she] grabbed a live capacitor node. [She] gasped.”

Answer:  Shadows of the Empire

Quote 2

“He grabs [her] suddenly and yanks [her] up against him, one hand at [her] back holding [her] to him and the other fisting in [her] hair.”

Answer: 50 Shades of Grey

Quote 3

” ‘You’re one challenging woman, ‘ he kisses [her], forcing [her] lips apart with his tongue taking no prisoners.”

Answer: 50 Shades of Grey

Quote 4

“[She] was his – if not in mind and spirit, then certainly [her] body belonged to him.”

Answer: Shadows of the Empire

If you did well, you’re either great at context clues or you actually read 50 Shades of Grey. You should only be proud of one of those.

Nope. Not that one.

Anyway, stay tuned for the full recap to enjoy my ranting on Leia’s own version of the “inner goddess” psyche.
