Best Books to Read on Star Wars Day
Hello and welcome to The Tattooed Book,
To celebrate Star Wars Day (May 4th) I thought I’d take a look at some of the top Star Wars related books for all ages. Big or small,. old or young, there’s a book out there for every Star Wars fan.
Star Wars Where’s Wookie is a book for all ages. Packed with searches and puzzles, in this Where’s Wally style book you’ll be hunting for the Wookie across some of the most recognisable scenes from the Star Wars world. A perfect gift book.
For all the Star Wars foodies out there (and those people who just like to Instagram their food and not eat it…weirdos) there The Star Wars Cookbook: BB-ate. This book will teach you to whip up BB-8 energy balls, Rose’s galaxy granola bar and C3-Poat pancakes. It’s a shame none of the recipes seem to visually represent the movie but it’s good fun all the same.
This is one for all the serious Star Wars connoisseurs out there. This study into the film compares Star Wars to George Lucas’ other works, takes an in-depth look at the cinematography, performances and editing. If you want a book that delves into the style and people behind Star Wars, this is the book for you.
I don’t often read books aimed at 8-12-year-old kids (it’s usually YA and up) but I’m so glad I did with The Strange Case of Origami Yoda. This whole series is fun fast and silly. If you’ve got a child that enjoys the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series and likes Star Wars too, then point them to this.
The title says it all with this one, Ultimate Star Wars. With a forward from Anthony Daniels (C-3PO himself) and more five star ratings than you can shake a stick at, this guide of characters, creatures, locations, technology and so much more, is just unmissable.
Hailed as one of the best Star Wars comics on the market, Skywalker Strikes follows Luke Skywalker and the rest of the team as they opposite the Galactic Empire after destroying the Death Star. They’re battling for freedom again Darth Vader and the Emperor but can they really ever be free?
If it’s a novel you’re looking to get your teeth in to then look no further than Star Wars: Thrawn.
Grand Admiral Thrawn is known as one of the most evil of the warriors of The Galactic Empire. This is his origins story, from his rise through Imperial ranks, via battles with route smugglers and then his rise to Admiral with battle forces at his command.
