Lost Stars 

By: Claudia Gray

Lost Stars is part of the Journey to Star Wars the Force Awakens series of books. Set eight years after the fall of the Old Republic, many planets are falling to the Empire and few stand up against their tyranny. Lost Stars is a fantastic journey that leads the reader through the troubling early years of the Empire. It's a love story focusing on two new characters Thane Kyrell and Ciena Ree whose journey as Imperials lead them down separate paths. Can they survive? This is one of the best and most well written new Star Wars cannon and should be on everyone's list to read.

Bloodline

By: Claudia Gray

Bloodline is set in the years before the events of The Force Awakens. It's been decades since the Rebellion defeated the Empire. Leia is now a senator and struggles daily to find balance between all the worlds in their fragile galaxy. The galactic senate calls for a senator to become a First Senator, someone who would bring strong leadership over all the galaxy. As the daughter of Darth Vadar, she is weary of one person holding so much power and fears what that might bring. 

Lost Stars is a very well written story that gives the reader a more in depth look at Leia and her life with Han Solo (and yes even Ben too!) before the start of the events during The Force Awakens.

Thrawn

By: Timothy Zahn

Timothy Zahn once again brings his character Thrawn to life in a new trilogy that explains the origins of Thrawn's story. The first book, Thrawn, is a great introduction on how the Empire found him. I loved this book. It really dove into the heart of Thrawn as a character and gave us a better sense of who he is and how he operates. Don't forget to check out the original Thrawn trilogy Heir to the Empire by Timothy Zahn. It's amazing!

Thrawn Treason

By: Timothy Zahn

The last book in the Thrawn trilogy sees him striving to rise within the Empire's ranks. Working under the guidance of the Emperor, Thrawn grows as the Empire's most effective instrument. This story gives us a glimpse of Director Krennic and a peek at the very secretive Death Star project. And we see the return of Thrawn's protege Eli Vanto. It also gives the reader an idea of how Thrawn struggles to balance his duty to the Empire with his duty to his home-world and the Chiss.

Thrawn Alliances

Thrawn's journey continues in Thrawn Alliances. This book brings Vadar and Thrawn together on an adventure to the world Batuu (sound familiar?) a place they once met before when Anakin was still a Jedi. The interaction between Vadar and Thrawn is everything a Star Wars fan could ask for.

Daring Adventures: Volume 1

By: Emma Carlson Berne

There are so many strong and awesome female characters in the Star Wars universe (bring back Mara Jade!) and their stories should be told. This book is obviously intended for kids, but I think it gives a nice backstory to some of the characters we know and love.

Star Wars The Last Jedi Novelization 

By: Jason Fry

The novelization of The Last Jedi by Jason Fry was like watching the movie again, except you get little bonuses regarding thoughts from the characters and added scenes. I really enjoyed it!

Phasma

By: Delilah S. Dawson

This book was written as part of the Journey to Star Wars The Last Jedi. This was the most brutal and deadliest with more graphic detail than I've ever read in a Star Wars book. That's not a bad thing though. In fact, it really opens up an understanding of the character that is Phasma. It makes total sense that her life would not have been easy before she joined the First Order.
