Over Memorial Day weekend, the latest installment in the ever-expanding Star Wars universe finally hit theaters, giving moviegoers a chance to explore the backstory of one of its most iconic characters, Han Solo. Unfortunately, that means fans will have to wait more than a year until the next new Star Wars film is released, but in the meantime, there are plenty of sci-fi novels to read if you loves Solo.
It may have had a disappointing performance at the box-office, but Solo: A Star Wars Story still managed to bring in an estimated $103 million over the long weekend, meaning plenty of fans showed up to see it. Different from the other films in the franchise, it takes viewers on an adventure alongside a young Han Solo, Chewbacca, and Lando Calrissian as they journey across the galaxy, smuggling precious cargo and fighting anyone who stands in their way. True to form, it's got everything a good sci-fi Western needs: blackmail, a dangerous criminal gang, a slave revolt, high-stakes gambling, blackmail, spaceship chases, romance, and even a train heist — in space!
If you just can't get enough action, adventure, and pure sci-fi fun, read these five books perfect for fans of Solo: A Star Wars Story.
