Waiting on Wednesday (30)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme that was created by Breaking the Spine to spotlight a blogger's eagerly anticipated new books.

For this Waiting on Wednesday, I picked Bloodline by Claudia Gray.

Release Date: May 3rd, 2016

Book Summary: 


When the Rebellion defeated the Empire in the skies above Endor, Leia Organa believed it was the beginning to a lasting peace. But after decades of vicious infighting and partisan gridlock in the New Republic Senate, that hope seems like a distant memory.

Now a respected senator, Leia must grapple with the dangers that threaten to cripple the fledgling democracy — from both within and without. Underworld kingpins, treacherous politicians, and Imperial loyalists are sowing chaos in the galaxy. Desperate to take action, senators are calling for the election of a First Senator. It is their hope that this influential post will bring strong leadership to a divided galaxy.

As the daughter of Darth Vader, Leia faces with distrust the prospect of any one person holding such a powerful position — even when supporters suggest Leia herself for the job. But a new enemy may make this path Leia’s only option. For at the edges of the galaxy, a mysterious threat is growing…"

My Thoughts: If you're like me and can't wait for the next Star Wars movie (the unanswered questions are burning me up!), this appears to shed a little light on Leia's past. Leia's one of my long-time favorite heroines, so I'm wondering if this book will reveal any details on her and Han's marriage after "Return of the Jedi," the birth of her son, when she "sent-him-away," when her brother went missing, and how the First Order gained a foothold in the galaxy. *Fingers crossed*
