Clone Wars books and MLP

YAY!!! I love me some Amazon.com
I have a $50 gift card that my brother and his wife gave me for Xmas.
I ended up using like.... $30 some-odd of it on 3 Star Wars Clone Wars Era books.

I HATE the fact that most of the female authors of books I looked at feel they simply MUST add a Mary-Sueish female character that's "been with" Obi-wan.
Kenobi just doesn't strike me as a 'one night stand' kind of person...
Plus the added character always seems to:
1. Have no weaknesses whatsoever
2. Tragic past
3. Tragic present
4. Have their 'unique' abilities/hair color/eye color/species/etc. mentioned so often that it becomes unbearable.

I ended up with:
"Shatterpoint" by Matthew Stover (highly recommend this guy as an author.)
"Yoda: Dark Rendevous" by Sean Stewart
"Labrinth of Evil" by James Luceno

I watched the My Little Pony Royal Wedding from DVR. Apparently Twilight has a brother who's marrying a princess.... good songs, a little shaky during bits of the story line though...

I wish I could have watched Royal Wedding, but I don't get that channel.

There was a Stargate SG-1 author who was just awful. Not only did she include Mary Sues, but she would have whole chapters dedicated to two random original characters who talk about child care and exchanging recipes and thought Daniel Jackson was cute. Talk about taking our gender several steps backwards with that swill! And she couldn't write in character to save her life.
