  1. Lost Stars deffinitely deserves the top spot! Everyone should read it and its only like 6 bucks now at narnes and noble in the clearance section

  2. In light of rewatching this video, I figured it's high time to rank my own top 10 list of the Disney Canon Star Wars novels. The following are the books in relative to the current continuity that I personally felt are the ones that stood out for me out of the most, if not all, the Disney Canon Star Wars novels I've read so far. But before I jump into it, here are a couple of honorable mentions that didn't quite make the list for one reason or another: Ahsoka by E.K Johnston and Bloodline by Claudia Gray. With that now settled let's jump right in on the said Top 10:

    10. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story film novelization by Alexander Freed

    9. Lost Stars by Claudia Gray

    8. Smuggler's Run by Greg Rucka

    7. Leia, Princess of Alderaan by Claudia Gray

    6. Rebel Rising by Beth Revis

    5. Weapon of the Jedi by Jason Fry

    4. Thrawn by Timothy Zahn

    3. Lords of the Sith by Paul S. Kemp

    2. Battlefront II: Inferno Squad by Christie Golden

    1. Catalyst by James Luceno

  3. Absolutely agree about "Star Wars Battlefront: Twilight Company"! It is a helluva novel! Loved it! It is a war novel through and through. I would love love to see Lucasfilm collaborate with Netflix and make a dark and gritty miniseries based on this novel, much like the Netflix-Marvel productions…

  4. I love this book site “fetching lobon only” (Google it), it`s not hard to utilize and there are lots of books/documents to read. I`m very thankful for finding this site and you should try it also. If you love to read than this is the site for you. I`ve discovered everything I have searched for.

  5. I have read both "Star Wars: Heir to the Empire" and "Star Wars: Dark Force Rising" (right now), they are so good! In my opinion I would say the real episode 7 is "Star Wars: Heir to the Empire", the reason I didn't say anything about DFR was that episode 8 isn't out yet. My collection of Star Wars books in general is a very small one (right now), "Star Wars: Heir to the Empire", "Star Wars: Dark Force Rising", "Star Wars: The Last Command", "Star Wars: Darth Plagueis", "Star Wars: Kenobi", "Star Wars: Dark Lord The Rise Of Darth Vader", "Star Wars: Tarkin", "Star Wars: Cloak Of Deception", and "Star Wars: Darth Maul Shadow Hunter".

  6. 1. Lost stars
    2. Dark disciple
    3. Bloodline
    4. Catalyst
    5. Lords of sith
    6. Weapon of the Jedi
    7. Before the awakening
    8. Smugglers run
    9. Moving target
    10. Aftermath

  7. I've read the Ashoka novel first, and honestly the beginning is interesting, then the middle is so terribly slow. And the near the end it gets better but it's still not my favorite, I'd say probably around 2.5-3/5

  8. I have all the new canon books, but sadly I had to get several of them as paperback and not hardcover which is murder on my eyes. Papers: heir of the jedi, tarkin, a new dawn, the star wars prequel trilogy (3 in one), dark disciple, and lords of the sith. Now they are really expensive on amazon and the bookstore never has them in (small store, small town)

  9. Hmmm…you just showed me how little of the new cannon I have read.  I have been alternating between Legends and Cannon but also finding it difficult to get the time to read.  I will think about the Twilight Company novel, I was never intending to read it but after your rating I may have to put that on my 2017 reading list.
