Alwyn Hamilton, author of the Rebel of the Sands series and one of our resident Star Wars enthusiasts, has blessed us with a list of books to read after seeing The Last Jedi, because we know it’s hard to go on with life after you’ve seen it. Never fear, we’ve got exactly what you need right here! Plus, it goes without saying that Rebel of the Sands should be at the top of your list.
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
For the tensest Space Chase ever seen on page. If the resistance crew though they had it rough for 18 hours, try outrunning your enemies for months!
Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo
If you can’t get enough of sworn enemies from the dark side and the light with an unsettling psychic connection, this is the book for you (but, I mean…probably start with SHADOW & BONE, the first book in the series. You wouldn’t jump into THE LAST JEDI without THE FORCE AWAKENS right? )
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
For A Pilot you can’t help but fall in Love with. This will help you through the next two years until we can have face time with Poe Dameron again. (Though I’ll be honest, my feelings about Maddie Brodatt are probably more platonic than my feelings for Poe Dameron.)
Avatar: The Last Airbender by Gene Luen Yang, Michael Dante DiMartino, Bryan Konietzko, Gurihiru and Dave Marshall
If you are “Kylo Ren Trash” (to quote a friend as we left the cinema) then chances are you will be into Prince Zuko too. For bonus points, if you were as stressed out by that drill as I was, watch The Drill episode of Season 2 of the TV show.
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
This is the series for all your Roguish Captain, Space Princess and Droid needs. And there are 4 books to keep you going until 2019 and Episode IX (depending on how quickly you read!)
The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski
If you ship supposed mortal enemies together (*cough* Reylo *cough*) then you’ll be wanting to get on board with Kestrel and Arin.
Graceling by Kristin Cashore
If you just can’t get enough of cruel rulers being deposed, then this is the book for you (for bonus points, there’s also a Po in this one!) Don’t forget the other books in the series, Fire and Bitterblue!
Orphan Monster Spy by Matt Killeen
It doesn’t get any tenser than going under cover among enemy troops wanting to kill you like Finn and Rose did. And as Sarah does as a Jewish girl in a Nazi boarding school in 1939 Germany in this book. Orphan Monster Spy is out March 30!
