Great list from ElectricLiterature that focuses more on the relationships and themes in Star Wars, not just its sci-fi genre and galaxy far far away setting.
According to some rumors on the Internet, a completely new Star Wars movie is being released in select theaters around the world on Friday. If this is true, it could mean a lot of Star Wars fans are going to very casually be posting their reactions intermittently to social media. It might be difficult to discern exactly what these Star Wars fans are on about, but one this is for sure: they’re going to be salvating for more stimulation that is similar to Star Wars.
So, here’s a list of books to read in preparation for the new Star Wars or for after you’ve seen the new Star Wars. These books are not actually Star Wars books, but will remind you more than a little bit of Star Wars.
