I never got super far into the old EU, but I did read the Republic Commando series by Karen Traviss and really liked those. Death Troopers was also interesting.
Wanna see my bookshelf?
I'm reading "Choices of one", by Timothy Zahn in my spare time.
But these days I'm reading those three books for a reading challenge (from a website I'm a member of):
- "Star Wars, The Jedi apprentices volume 2: The dark rival", by Jude Watson (Sci-Fi).
- "Bertie and the tin man", by Peter Lovesey (Mystery)
- "The devil's due (A Sherlock Holmes adventure, book 3)", by Bonnie Macbird (Detective)
The reading challenge starts on April 1st and ends on April 31, if I finish those three books early, I'll have a week or a week and half left and I'll have time to keep reading "Choices of one".
It's a yearly reading challenge and you can choose the number of books you want to read every month and over the year. I chose to read three books every month for a grand total of thirty-six books over the year. Three books every month is a reasonable amount (and less stressful than five or six every months) for a reading challenge I think, it is for me anyway. And when I have time left, I read some other book from my personal bookshelf. I take at least one day every week to keep reading/finish reading a book on my bookshelf that isn't part of my reading challenge.
Also, these days it seems that I'm "obsessed" with this band and I listen to this playlist a lot (it's great music):
