I wanted to keep track of my (slow) progress reading through all the Star Wars canon novels, but I couldn?t find a good list. They either included everything being published, or left off the junior novels (which are still worth a read). The other major difference of this list from others, is that books spanning multiple time periods are ordered based on when they end, not when they begin. This prevents spoilers, and makes more sense narratively. So here?s my compiled list, with the film and TV shows listed for time period reference.
