Dear Luke, We Need to Talk. - Darth: And Other Pop Culture Correspondences by John Moe was too funny. It is a collection of letters, diaries, reports, and "Welp" reviews from all the popular movies in the past 100 years.
Most of easy to catch on that you know what they are. But, some, I had to really think about where they came from. You have to either be older (or well versed in older pop culture) to understand alot of these things.
The ones that I did were absolutely funny! There were things from movies, music, books, TV shows, even the Super Bowl because pop culture is all of these things.
I wish I could have read in Paperback because reading it via the format I did just wasn't working for me. I think with the Paperback, it would have made more sense. (One section I had to skip over because I couldn't find the right formatting.)
I give this a 4.5 coins.
5 = best
1 = worst
This book had mostly good parts, but sometimes you have to really get past the cussing (a lot) and try to actually seeing the section as a whole.
This book is published by Three Rivers Press. It runs about $15 USD/$18 CAD

I was recently contacted by Jason Sandberg, the author of Candy and the Cankersaur.
This is a story about a girl, her dinosaur, and the jealous neighbor. Candy is a girl with a businessman for a father who likes her to play outside while he does business. The Jealous Neighbor is a little boy named Chucky who likes to have whatever Candy has but better. Candy's father decided that she needed a pet to keep her company. He bought her a dinosaur, which Chucky got very jealous of and decided to steal.
I can't reveal the end. But it is a very cute book which I would highly recommend. It has a cute plot, wonderful graphics, and reveals that all humans, even Jealous Neighbors, have feelings. Businessman fathers can actually be there for their daughters. And let's not forget that Dinosaurs might not be extinct! It is a good bedtime story and also is really good for morals.
I give this 5 coins.
5 = best.
1 = worst.
This book is recommonded for kids ages 3-9 (3-6 for a picture book; 6-9 for a read alone book). It is a cute book and can be bought at http://www.jasonsandberg.com/ebooks.htm.
I have been compensated for this post by being provided a free copy. All opinions are mine.

I have one book waiting to be reviewed currently. The People of Forever Are Not Afraid by Shani Boianjiu. I will hopefully be able to post a review when this summer semester is over (and when my son will let me).

I had to work all summer and did not have access to internet on my computer. I did not realize that I had 33 followers (publically) and even had people email to advertise them on my page. I feel so proud! If I had not responded to emails that you have sent to my gmail account, I will respond as soon as I can. I will try to get more reviews up as soon as I can. I hope to get active again!
Peace, Love, Vote Books!
