Just statted out possibly the most iconic blaster in Star Wars, I’ve got quite a few more to go.

42 years ago today, we were introduced to a galaxy far, far away, which forever revolutionized cinema, but also impacted culture in a truly unprecedented way forever. Thank you George, for giving us such a wonderful gift!
Sequels are tricky. I’ve heard authors often talking about how much harder it was for them to write a sequel than the first book, and I understand why! It’s a hard balance between bringing the aspects that readers loved from the first book and still progressing and bringing something new and exciting to the second book.
I just finished the audiobook of Ghosts of Greenglass House (sequel to Greenglass House which I read a couple months back and really enjoyed) and I have to say it fell short for me. It felt like the same basic set up and storyline of the first book, but not quite as compelling. Admittedly, one of my favorite parts of the first book was the winter setting surrounding a historic house full of character, and it may have been harder to feel that magic again as I was reading this book at the onset of summer. I enjoyed the book, but there just wasn’t enough that was new or compelling to get me really excited.
I know many other people who loved this sequel though, so if you really enjoyed the first one I’d still give this one a shot! What do you look for in a sequel? More of the same to love or do you like things to be mixed up more?
