Millennium Falcon (Star Wars) by James Luceno
Millennium Falcon (Star Wars)

Kayla Rhodes, August 3, 2013

This is probably one of the best Star Wars books that I have ever read. I read it in just 2 days because it was too good to put down. I really liked how it explored the history of the Millennium Falcon and it's previous owners before Han Solo and Lando Calrissian. I also liked how the book basically revolved around 4 main characters, Han Solo, Leia Organa Solo, Allana Solo, and one of the previous owners of the Millennium Falcon. Han Solo is my favorite Star Wars character so that is another reason why I liked this book so much.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Harry Potter #3) by J. K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Harry Potter #3)

Kayla Rhodes, August 3, 2013

This is my second favorite Harry Potter book. I've probably read this book about 3 or 4 times since 4th grade when I first read it. Like all the other Harry Potter books, it's really hard to put down; I can read it for hours and not get bored.

Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina (Star Wars) by Kevin J Anderson
Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina (Star Wars)

Kayla Rhodes, August 3, 2013

I read this book while I was on vacation in Sun River, OR. Even though I was on vacation I probably read this book at an average of 3 hours a day because it was really good. My favorite story in this book is the one about Greedo because since Greedo is killed by Han Solo in the original Star Wars movie, he is not in many of the Star Wars books, so I did't know much about him besides the fact that he's a Rodian bounty hunter.

The Rise of the Sith (Star Wars Omnibus) by Various
The Rise of the Sith (Star Wars Omnibus)

Kayla Rhodes, August 3, 2013

I liked how this book focused on some of the Jedi from the prequel trilogy because I don't know as much about them since there have been more books written taking place after the events of the original Star Wars trilogy. I also liked how this book took place a few years before The Phantom Menace because the only other books that do that is the children's series, Jedi Apprentice, by Jude Watson that's about Obi-Wan Kenobi's apprenticeship to Qui-gon Jinn.

The Making of Star Wars: The Definitive Story Behind the Original Film by J. W. Rinzler
The Making of Star Wars: The Definitive Story Behind the Original Film

Kayla Rhodes, August 3, 2013

This is one of the best non-fiction Star Wars books. It tells the most in depth story about the creation of Star Wars and the making of the first Star Wars movie. The creation of Star Wars is really a huge success story because nobody, including George Lucas, thought Star Wars was going to succeed, when really it was going to become the most enduring movie of all time because even now, 33 years later, there are still Star Wars Celebrations held every 2 years or so and more and more of the younger generation is being introduced to it. This book even included all of the drafts (summarized) of the original Star Wars movie so the reader can see how the story evolved to what it is today. This was an awesome book!
