Maria Lost Stars (Star Wars) by Claudia Gray

I loved this one! Felt like a well-written YA romance that just happened to take place in the Star Wars galaxy--which, in my opinion, is the best way to go about expanded universe-type worldbuilding.

I agree completely
Star Wars audiobooks are the best ones out there.

Rachel I love my Star Wars audiobooks. My favorite are the BBC radio dramas of the Original Trilogy.

This is precisely what I didn't like about this book. I was expecting a true Star Wars novel, such as Darth Plagueis, or the Bane trilogy, and ended up with a vaguely placed in the SW universe Young Adult Romance novel in my hands. At least it was a gift and I didn't spend my money on this. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

b.andherbooks I never expected to have SO MANY FEELS from a compilation of short stories, but man the narrators are making my quite weepy (in a good way) while driving around town! From a Certain Point of View

Sarah Bloodline was quite good, I thought. Leia of Alderaan had some narrative-structure issues. But you can tell that Claudia Gray really knows and admires the character of Leia. I don't think the Princess could ask for a better biographer.


message 8: by Chicagomel (new)

Chicagomel Read the Legends audiobooks and radio dramas. Dark Empire, Thrawn Trilogy...Plaugeis, Revan Dawn of the Jedi and Dark Lord are all good. And tell Disney to give us new Legends material!

Yeah she could, the writers of her Legends history. It's far better than Disney.

If you want great Star Wars YA read Young Jedi Knights.


message 11: by Natalie (new)

Natalie K For what it's worth, Thrawn is AMAZING. It's so good that I read it twice in the span of 2 months or so, which I nearly never do!


message 12: by Kendall (new)

Kendall Moore The Dark Empire comic is a personal favorite of mine.
