Worlds Without End Roll-Your-Own Reading Challenge

Star Wars Reading Challenge

Star Wars Reading Challenge

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...

To celebrate the release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens later this month, I thought I'd put together a Star Wars themed reading challenge. Only novels set in the Star Wars universe are eligible for this challenge and may include anything from the "Legends" timeline (formerly known as the Expanded Universe, which encompasses every officially licensed story material published before April 25, 2014) or the new canon.

While you don't have to review every book you read, I will ask that you head over to the forum thread to say a few words about the books you read. As with every shared universe, some of the books are really good while others just stink. Let's hear what you guys think.

For those not familiar with the almost 40 years worth of material that is out there (the official novelization of the first film was released six months prior to the movie, making it the first piece of Star Wars merchandise ever produced), this is a list of all Star Wars novels published so far as compiled by the good folks over at Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

Have fun and may the force be with you!
