    Lol. I haven't necessarily been a 'shipper of them, but I'd be good with it happening.

    Finished the Balance graphic novels and am onto The Blade. After that I have the HR short stories book to work on. I'm getting back in the zone.

    My guess is that something will happen between Avar and Elzar that makes the Jedi Order crack down harder on relationships between Padawans. The attitude towards young Jedi dating seems to have been far more relaxed in the High Republic than it is in the prequel era.

    Finished all of the Phase II graphic novels. Working my way through 'Tales of Light and Life.'

    Had a copy of "Star Wars Insider: The High Republic: Tales of Enlightenment" by George Mann show up. Tomorrow my copy of "The Living Force" is arriving [face_dancing]

    I think I'm down to only a handful of stories left in the Tales book (yay to the Bell story!) I'll then work on finishing "Convergence." I want to get to Phase III before the next round of books appear, which means finishing all of Phase II first.

    Me too. I got the Barnes and Nobel exclusive version.
    Finished "Tales of Light and Life" and am close to finishing "Convergence." Next up will be "Battle for Jedha".
    Come to think of it, I still need to finish "Tempest Runner" - but I can do that before I start Phase III.

    I just peeked through my HR characters book and got all confused. Apparently it's Axel on the cover of the next adult book of Phase II. I did not see him as Asian in my head, Phan-Tu yes, Axel? No.

    I'd have thought his mother being named Kyong would have given it away. Also Phan-tu (and IIRC most Eirami) is black.

    Eh it doesn't really matter. I really didn't pay attention to Axel's mother other than seeing her as the Chancellor. I just think it's funny how you can read character descriptions and come up w/ something different in your head than what the author intended.

    I'm closing in towards the end of bonkers "Battle for Jedha." I'm also plowing through "Crimson Climb."
    I now can't wait for Convergence (I think that's adult book 2's name.).

    Yeah it was a good read. Lots of fun action. Just started the second adult book. I'm down to it, the last young adult and young reader books, and Precipice. Then I'll be done with Phase II, I think. There were other comics that I think I missed and need to look for.

    Finished "Catalyst" - what a great book. So far it's my fav from phase II with "Battle for Jedha" being right behind it.

    Next up is Manga "Precipice," then "Path of Destruction", and "Search for Planet X" before I wave goodbye to Phase II.

    I had the first graphic novel for Phase III arrive. It took a lot of willpower to not crack it open. Lol

    I know how you feel I don't have any willpower so I had a friend hide it from me :)

    Finished Precedent - onto Path of Vengeance. Already I'm remembering why I found Madra and the Path annoying - but I'll keep plowing through. Only 1 more book after this and then I need to finish "Tempest Runner" and I can get to Phase III to start it.

    I'm also working my way through "Crimson Climb" also. It's a little slow but I feel book is doing a good job of showing us Qi'ra moving into the world of Crimson Dawn. I'm enjoying it, but I've enjoyed all of the books from "Solo."

    "Most Wanted" and "Last Shot" were both good reads. "Crimson Climb" is after "Most Wanted." I think I still need to get the movie novelization.
