Deanna Listens: Legends Library

Deanna Listens
 is a monthly feature on the first Monday of every month I created to showcase some of my favorite podcasts. I'm a little late this month, due to the holiday on Monday. Holiday from work also counts for my blog too, right? So this month I am talking about another Star Wars themed podcast I love -- Legends Library.

This podcast is a part of The Coffee With Kenobi podcast family (which I have yet to talk about on this blog but eventually will), and they focus primarily on the star wars old expanded universe books(now called the legends timeline). I'm such a fan of the old books that this podcast is right up my alley. I'm also so glad that the hosts like Mara Jade and Jaina Solo a lot, since they are two of my favorites characters! It definitely won me over.

I have to give them mad props for taking on the monster that is the New Jedi Order. That series is pretty massive, and I still haven't finished it, but I am hoping to soon. I like the way they organized the episodes on these. Instead of having an episode dedicated to each book, they sectioned it out for 3 books each. I think that's a great way to tackle this beast of a series. I am hoping I can get back into this and listen to the rest of their episodes on these. I was doing these on audio and following along, but all the audiobook versions are abridged and I feel like I am missing out a lot from the story, so I think I have to actually read the rest.

Some of my favorite episodes I have listened to so far are:

I am making it my goal for this year to stop reading ARCs and to read what I want, so I am trying to go back and re-read the Legends books I never got to. So I definitely want to go back and listen to more of these episodes. If you are a fan of the old Star Wars EU, I highly recommend listening to this podcast (and checking out the rest of CWK family).

Got a great podcast you love? Give me a recommendation in the comments. No serious, please help, I'm running out of podcasts to listen to!

Happy Reads Everyone!
