Many A Star Wars Story!
Since I am still jumping up and down in pure excitement at the Solo: A Star Wars Story teaser release, I thought this next piece would be super fun to do!
In the past year or so we have seen a rise in YA authors bringing out books on characters in the Marvel and DC Universe and they are definitely getting some huge review, with fans loving books like Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo, a Wonder Woman novel and more. BUT, there are a large collection of Star Wars novels from even more loved authors, so I thought to myself ; WE NEED A LIST!
So to fill that millennium falcon sized space inside you that's looking to be stuffed with Star Wars geek-ness and goodness; here's some books available now to help pass the time till the Solo release!

Alexandra Bracken is a massive name within the YA Sci-Fi community, best known for her Darkest Minds Trilogy, Passenger Duology and her recent release The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Reading!

E. K. Johnston recently gave us That Inevitable Victorian Thing and before that gave us A Thousand Nights and Spindle, fans were granted even MORE, with this next Star Wars novel:
Beth obviously gave us the Across The Universe trilogy and showed us she had a head for YA science fiction and we were graced with not only a Rogue One based book but she was also part of a graphic novel series:
I just also wanted to put a couple down here that I think are worthy mentioning and making you aware that they exist and they are:

Star Wars: From A Certain Point Of View with stories by YA authors such as Pierce Brown, Sabaa Tahir and stars like Wil Wheaton!
