I would grab anything Karen Traviss writes, she has more of a grip on the canon. Try maybe the Republic Commando books (Her clone wars take) Hard Contact, Triple Zero, True Colors, Order 66, the the "conclusion" Imperial Commando 501st. Alot of people say her stories make alot of characters weak and sappy, but what she does is break the mythos that all Mandalorians are knuckle draggers wearing Beskar. Also she humanizes Boba Fett in the latter half of her coloboative writings. So tl;dr

Republic Commando books (plus Imperial Commando)

X-Wing series

Legacy of the Force series

Fate of the Jedi series

I personally liked the NJO/Vong series, but for a novice in the lore reading, it may be a bit much.

Oh, and anything Timothy Zahn writes, especially his here and there books about Outbound Flight, and the Heir to the Empire.

Simple one shot contained books that are fun:

Death Troopers, Knight Errant, Yoda: Dark Rendezvous, Red Harvest.

If you get into the lore you HAVE to read The Courtship of Princess Leia

I can go on, but Im tired of typing, I keep misspelling stuff.
