After I read Star Wars: Lost Stars by Claudia Gray, I knew I needed to read more Star Wars books ASAP. I picked up Leia: Princess of Alderaan and it was also phenomenal. I loved getting to learn more about our lovely princess, especially in the years before A New Hope.
I’ll admit, growing up, Leia was not my favorite Star Wars character. I was definitely more of a “I want to be a Jedi” girl. However, as I’ve gotten older, I’ve definitely appreciated the character more and more. She’s strong, beautiful, and doesn’t let anyone mess with her! And you can definitely see that in this book. Gray captures the character of Leia just perfectly.
Is it as action packed as Lost Stars? No. But the story is still riveting and beautifully written. You’ll also get to meet some new characters like Amilyn Holdo (who appeared in The Last Jedi) and a love interest!
Have you read this book? What were your thoughts? I’d love to hear them in the comments below!
