"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


BLOG TOUR --- The Legends of Luke Skywalker by Ken Liu [Spotlight + Giveaway]

I am a HUGE Star Wars fan, so when I got the opportunity to be a part of this book tour, I jumped at it!  Luke Skywalker is, some would argue, the central character of the Star Wars franchise.  He is the "Savior" of the galaxy and also the catalyst for future destruction.  Luke has been regular farm-boy, Padawan, and Jedi Master.  He is from a powerful lineage, and uses that power to protect, not harm.

There is so many stories that have yet to be told within the Star Wars Universe about all the characters, but I'm so glad that the exploration of those stories is including Luke himself.  Reading the legends, you get a sense of both the man and the hero.  A person whispered about in awe and in fear.

If you're a Star Wars fan, this book should not be missing from your home library!

The Summary

As a cargo ship rockets across the galaxy to Canto Bight, the deckhands on board trade stories about legendary Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker. But are the stories of iconic and mysterious Luke Skywalker true, or merely tall tales passed from one corner of the galaxy to another? Is Skywalker really a famous Jedi hero, an elaborate charlatan,or even part droid? The deckhands will have to decide for themselves when they hear The Legends of Luke Skywalker.

A collection of myths and tall-tales about the legendary Jedi Luke Skywalker, written by Nebula, Hugo, and World Fantasy award-winning author Ken Liu.
