The Courtship of Princess Leia by Dave Wolverton

I read this book about three years ago, but never gave it its own post, so I am doing it now.  This book has a lot of faults, but it is one of the few I have distinct memories of reading as a teenager and I loved it back then, so there’s a lot of nostalgia there for me.  It doesn’t make sense that Leia suddenly is willing to marry for diplomatic reasons and leave Han behind, but I like that they reconcile in the end and get married.  Threepio’s song about Han is the greatest part of Star Wars literature.  Fight me. I also really like the Dathomir storyline and the force witches were awesome.

Rereading it as an adult, I totally see the issues with the book, but at the time I loved it.
