Star Wars: These are the books you're looking for

Can't get enough of Star Wars? Immerse yourself in a galaxy far, far away with these Star Wars fiction series.

The series below have been listed in approximate chronological order according to the Star Wars timeline, not according to their publication order. Additionally, several series within the Star Wars universe have been omitted due to their designation as graphic novels, children’s, or young adult fiction.

In addition to being arranged chronologically, the following books have been separated into two overarching categories: Star Wars Legends and Star Wars Canon. Books that fall into the Star Wars Legends category are those published prior to 2014 and are no longer considered canon or official storylines within the Star Wars universe. These books were published prior to Disney acquiring the rights to the series. All subsequent titles fall under the Star Wars Canon category and are officially recognized storylines.
