I just started Leviathan Wakes. I've been dying to get a good sci-fi story and this more than qualifies. Love The Expanse, and getting deeper into the universe and lore is a treat.

Also, I'll possibly be taking part in a book-on-tape for Shadowrun: Crimson (if the funding goes through). REALLY looking forward to that.

I just started re-reading Star Wars Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor earlier tonight. Second time or third time im reading it. Then whenever I get done with that ill be reading the Bounty Hunter Wars Trilogy hardcover and then probably re-read all 3 of the Aftermath novels and then the Phasma and Bloodline novels

With the holidays coming up, I was thinking of some SW novels to put on my wishlist. Anybody got any good tips? Preferably from 2014 onwards, as they're easier to obtain for family.

I've already got Dark Disciple and Inferno Squad and prefer to read about new characters than movie mains. Also, I don't want straight movie novelizations.
Twilight Company is one I'm definitely adding.

Twilight Company is really good. Its about a group of Rebel troopers that go to planets to do missions and they even end up on Hoth when Vader comes.

Yeah man, that book is great. I love how they give "life" to their ship with how they're always caring for it.
Then, when what happens when they're on that last planet, I was like,"Ohhhh shhhhhhhhhh**!!!"

Just started Black Spire. 50 pages in and I like the start. Hoping to finish it before I head to Batuu and WDW in November.

Just finished reading the first Star Wars X-Wing novel. Great story in it but the last speech by the main Imperial bad guy is a bit cheesy. He's pretty much talking to himself saying "Ill get you Corran Horn and your little dog too. "

I loved the X-wing series. I first found one when I was on vacation in Ocean City, MD. We had gone to the local Rite-Aid and I saw Wedge's Gamble and naturally bought it. I hadn't read Rogue Squadron yet (and wouldn't until about 5 more books in the series later) but dove right into this. It started my tradition of reading at least one Star Wars book while sitting on the beach. And just about every available moment where we were doing anything. It was a great series and it would have been nice if they cold have continued it.

ive been reading the Phasma novel all day and couple more pages an hour ago.

Still have half of the book to read

Book's story is pretty good for an origin for Phasma. the thing with Cardinal and the Resistance spy it reminds me of the movie The Usual Suspects. Thats how I see it

I finished the new Thrawn trilogy last month. Its ok, but it doesn't really hold a candle to the "Legends" Thrawn trilogy. Second book in this new run was a bit of slog for me to get through.

And not Star Wars, but I just read "Death of the Planet of the Apes." If you're a classic POTA fan, I highly recommend it. The tone is exactly right, it reads perfectly the same way the movies watch. It was a serious page turner, for me anyway, ymmv.

Finished reading Resistance Reborn last night. Pretty good book.
