Like most Star Wars fans I grew up enjoying the films very much. But it wasn't until I was a teenager and borrowed my brother's copy of Heir to the Empire by Timothy Zahn that I became a Star Wars fanatic. What can I say? I was more of a bookworm than a film buff growing up.
Since becoming a blogger 7 years ago I've wanted to host a Star Wars reading challenge but didn't think I could get anyone to join in. But ya know what? I think a lot of my friends who love romances and science fiction and fantasy and dystopian and young adult books will find a lot of the books just as great as I have... and there are more coming out every month!
So I'm doing it. Even if I wind up doing it alone. I'm doing it. Because Star Wars books.
Here is how this challenge works:
- Challenge Dates: January 1st, 2016 through December 31st, 2016. You can join at any point.
