Whats your top 5?


1. Shatterpoint
2. ROTS Novelization
3. Thrawn Trilogy
4. Darth Plageuis
5. Dark Lord Rise of Darth Vader

Also anything by Timothy Zahn or Mathew Stover seems to be awesome...
Hapan: "This creature has information that could lead us to a woman who has been kidnapped. We will get that information."
Luke: "This woman is a citizen of the New Republic, and if you do not take your hands off her, I will take your hands off you."

Difficult to split up books from a series, so I am just going to list those series as one choice.

1. The Thrawn Trilogy(series)
2. Bounty Hunter Wars (trilogy)
3. Tales from series (Cantina/Jabba's Palace/etc.) - loved the way they tied those into the background characters
4. Allegiance
5. Republic Commando (series by Traviss)

Lots of others that come close. I have been reading the SW books since they started publishing them (I was 6 when ANH came out) and loved the Han Solo books back then.
The X Wing series is always fun.
And I, Jedi is great, but I like anything with Coran Horn in it.

Just a friendly heads up, You're gonna catch a lot of flak for that around here.

Let's see, in no particular order...

Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor
Death Star
ROTS novelisation
Republic Commando: Hard Contact

And uh... Those are the only ones I've read come to think of it. I enjoyed them all a lot anyway.

Too many to choose from. I have read nearly every novel written, but here are five I love.

The Courtship of Princess Leia
X-Wing:Rogue Squadron (as well as the rest of that series)
Heir to the Empire (the entire trilogy to be honest )
New Jedi Order: Vector Prime
Allegiance (because Mara Jade is kriffing awesome!)

I like a lot of them but I would have to go:

1) Thrawn Trilogy. This should be a movie. Who could play Thrawn though? Gary Oldman is my vote.
2) I, Jedi
3) Fatal Alliance.
4) Decieved (Just finished last night, short but I rather liked the Malgus story line)
5) Darth P.

Taking a break from SW stories and going to read Game of Thrones series and then Walking Dead.
