Ranking the ‘Star Wars’ Books That I’ve Read; from Worst to Best

Throughout my years as a Star Wars fan I had only watched the movies and had never delved into the fictional book realm of the franchise…until recently. In the past year I have read several incredible Star Wars novels, all of which belong to the new canon created after Disney bought the franchise, and while some were slightly boring others were downright fantastic and helped expand my mind to the overall story of these films. So, I’m here to tell you which books I thought were just okay and which novels excelled my wildest expectations. Enjoy!

The Force Awakens

Star_Wars_The_Force_Awakens_novelization

While I absolutely love The Force Awakens the novel is surprisingly disappointing. The story is kind of boring and there isn’t anything exactly different from the novel that wasn’t in the movie. Of course it’s Star Wars and it’s always fun to read anything that’s involved with Star Wars but this definitely isn’t a book to own.

Ranking: B-

AfterMath

The Aftermath Trilogy is a compelling series of books that tell the story of, well, the aftermath following the Battle of Endor. We get new characters to follow, some original faces here and there (one of them being Wedge which was really awesome) and some fantastic storylines. But as cool as the story sounds the trilogy’s first installment is a bit of a bore compared to its next two installments and that’s why I have it ranked next to last on this list. It is, however, a good book to read.           

Ranking: B

A New Dawn

This book follows the story of two Star Wars: Rebels characters, Kanan Jarrus, a rascally type who was once a padawan before Order 66, and Hera Syndulla, a secret rebellion operative trying to stop the Empire’s reign. They cross paths on a planet overrun by the Empire and together they try to free the planet from the tyrannical organization’s reign. This is a fantastic novel full of enticing action, great character interplay, and a perfect introduction to these prominent characters in the Star Wars universe. If you’re a fan of Star Wars: Rebels this book is a must-have.

Ranking: B

A Revelation About Rey

So I have just recently finished reading Star Wars: Bloodline which was so good by the way. This book is set, I think, six years before The Force Awakens and is focused solely on Leia and what she was doing at that time. Not only was it fun reading about that time period and all of its political struggles and so forth in the galaxy but it also gave me one of the largest hints about Rey that I’ve gotten in the last twenty months and I’m so excited to share it with you.
