So I'm gonna buy some star wars books or audiobooks, haven't read any of them. Just seen the movies. But I'd like to read some of the EU stuff too.

What are the best ones, the MUST read star wars books?

The Thrawn Trilogy by far:
Heir to the Empire, Dark Force Rising & The Last Command.
Írulan (Sage) ~ Jeannedarc (Shadow) ~ Sihaya (Scoundrel) ~ Elysaine (Sentinel)
Rhíannon (Sorc) ~ Gaeriel (Merc) ~ Ìrulan (Mara) ~ Aurorâ (Op) ~ Samus-Aran (PT)
The Corrino Legacy Server: The Red Eclipse

I started reading the Old Republic stuff, and so far I've found it enjoyable. Plus it ties into the game which is nice.

Depends if you like the movies or more of a T.O.R fan.

Imo The Thrawn Trilogy could easily made into movies as Episode 7-9. But that's just me

I love pretty much everything Star wars, except Phantom Menace and The force unleashed games.

I wish I could tell you I liked at least ONE.

I read all kinds of literature, and I can easily say that there are some really, REALLY bad authors who write SW EU stories.

The ones I know to stay away from are Traviss, Allston and Denning. I read the Legacy of the Force series (9 books) and all of them were garbage.

I also read Shadows of the Empire because it got some pretty decent reviews as a tie in between ESB and RotJ. It was not that great either.

I would like to know as well if there are any others that stand out at all.

Darth Plageuis
RoTS Novelization
Dark Lord: Rise of Lord Vader
Thrawn Trilogy
Shatterpoint

^Best novels imo.

I guess the Bane Trilogy is alright, at least for the most part.
