This week on Tosche Station Radio, we’re joined by Saf to break down the middle grade and young adult novels in the Journey to The Force Awakens!

Kicking off the show, the hosts highlight what’s New on the Blog. Bria reviewed Star Wars #10, Lando #5, Darth Vader #10. Bria also attended Baltimore Comic Con a few weekends ago and had the chance to interview Mark Waid and Charles Soule. We did a Go/No-Go for Rise of the Empire, Nanci, a Luke fan, reviewed Smuggler’s Run by Greg Rucka (the Han book). New mom Emily wrote about Walmart’s new Star Wars commercials challenging antiquated gender norms.  Bria regaled us of the happenings in Star Wars Uprising. Nanci reviewed Servants of the Empire: The Secret Academy.

From there it’s the geeky things we’ve been up to in Fixer’s Flash followed by a whole bunch of Rebels news in Deak’s Dirt. There’s the usual TFA mass speculation in Biggs’ Bull$&!@

This week on Camie’s Concerns, we take a look at the middle grade and YA books that were a part of the Journey to The Force Awakens. What did we enjoy? Are they worth your time? What links to the upcoming film are in these books? Tune in to find out!
