Hello my friends, and happy New Year!

For a 2022 inventory, I thought I’d list all the Star Wars books I read last year. For the most part, I enjoyed every single one of them.

The books:

A re-read of the second adult book in Phase One of THR. The Nihil attack the Republic Fair at Valo.
Third adult book in Phase 1 of THR. The Nihil attack Starlight Beacon.
Companion middle-grade book to The Rising Storm. Two Padawans have their own battle on Valo.
Companion YA book to The Fallen Star. Padawans investigate the Nihil on Corellia.
Companion middle-grade to The Fallen Star. Padawans investigate the Nihil on Dalna.
Three short stories about Rey, Poe and Finn before they met in TFA.
The very first SW book after ROTJ, introducing Thrawn. The only Legends book I read this year.
The third book in the Padme trilogy, a YA novel taking place between AOTC and ROTS.
An Anakin and Obi-Wan novel, at the start of the Clone Wars. Obi-Wan investigates a terrorist attack (“that business”) on Cato Neimoidia.
A straight retelling of the Skywalker saga, focusing on the stories of Anakin, Luke, Leia, and Rey.

  1. Someone gifted me the 1976 Book Club hardcover edition of “Star Wars: From the Adventures of Luke Skywalker,” complete with the dust jacket, which has the art by John Berkey. I already owned another copy that one of my college buddies found at a used bookstore in Miami back in the late 1980s and gave it to me for a birthday or Christmas gift, but that copy was missing the cover and one page from the two color picture inserts that 20th Century Fox provided Del Rey Books/Ballantine to promote the movie. (If I recall correctly, those inserts were derived from promo materials given away/sold in movie theaters when “Star Wars” was originally released in 1977.
