This is a #MiddleGrade novel where a bunch of kids on their way to Canto Bite hear and tell stories of Luke Skywalker. The first story was the best. It was a rather Mel Brookish retelling. The others were more typical.

wisherwishinguponastar They illustrated some of these in a manga! If you get a chance to read it I highly suggest it! I was not a fan of the Lugubrious Mote story, but I loved it in the manga! 14mo
BookwormAHN @booksellerofyourdiscontent That was not my favorite either but I'll look for the manga. 14mo

I enjoyed this collection of Luke stories as tales of his adventures grow into myths and spread throughout the galaxy...I‘d like to think they all hold at least a kernel of truth. 👍

I definitely feel like we are building to the film‘s conclusion with some of these stories....the final prophesied one that will bring balance to the force, no dark verses light. Anakin didn‘t, and neither did Luke....I so wanted it to be Leia, but I think it has to be Rey now.

Started this one today, funny how they used the film‘s rerelease graphics and fan theories to spin a great conspiracy theory. 😂

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Not sure why it didn‘t update to say May Reading Choices instead of “Cooy of April”, but it kept the updated reading options, so just ignore the header. 4y
CSeydel I just finished Thrawn last night and coincidentally my hold on Thrawn: Alliances came in today! So I am behind but following along. I‘ll skip voting and just go with whatever you guys select. 4y

@CindyMyLifeIsLit was so sweet to mail me this one last bookmark, which did not make it to her in time to be included in the wonderful #bookmarkswap package she sent. Love this one so much - it will be put to instant use during my buddy read of the tagged book with my 13 year old. :) Thanks, Cindy!!

An enjoyable book of tales about a group of people who have met Luke Skywalker. No major spoilers at all for the current movie

This was actually quite terrible, very disappointing. Some really drab and long-winded stories that just did not relate very well to the larger Star Wars universe. Skip this one.

Finishing this on my lunch break. These stories are the perfect companion to The Last Jedi for many reasons, although I am glad that I finished them after seeing the movie. Here‘s to more of this awesomeness because #starwarsdecember is not over for me yet! #maytheforcebewithyou #wearealllukeskywalker

The Last Jedi was so good. I‘m not sure exactly my feelings quite yet, but I did enjoy the movie. And having the new perspective of having read some of the new books was definitely a game changer for watching the movie.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I loved that quote too! And I have to catch up with their books, there were so many this year I‘ve sadly fallen behind 5y
alisiakae You have me intrigued about the books!!I just saw the movie today, but have never read any Star Wars books. Recommendations of where to start? 5y
stargazerblue49 @4thhouseontheleft I really loved Bloodline by Claudia Gray, but I‘m also currently reading The Legends of Luke Skywalker and Leia: Princess of Alderaan which are nth very good as well. Planning on doing the Aftermath trilogy by Chuck Wendig and reading the books about Ahsoka and Captain Phasma as well! 5y

Really delightful stories. 👍🏻⭐️💫

stargazerblue49 I actually loved how there was sort of a tie-in to one of the stories in the movie. I am loving them so much. 5y
ssravp @stargazerblue49 I haven‘t seen it yet but. Can‘t wait to see which story it is. 5y

This is really a book of short stories about Luke told by a group of people on a transport ship. I loved getting to know Luke through the eyes of others as he traveled around the galaxy learning about the ways of the Force. A great addition to any Star Wars library.

This was a fun look into how people in the Star Wars galaxy view Luke. It was beautifully written. There was just one story that I wasn't super fond of. The others were a great mix of funny, thoughtful, and cool. Just like Star Wars should be.

awishman Out of curiosity, what one did you not care for? 5y
annkuch13 @awishman I didn't really like the Lugubrious Mote one. My favorite was Fishing in the Deluge. 5y
awishman @annkuch13 I liked Fishing in the Deluge too. He writes Luke very well. 5y
annkuch13 @awishman I love how he writes Luke! His writing in general was really beautiful. 5y
awishman @annkuch13 Agreed! It's such a meta book. I want my 9 year old to read to see what she takes from it. 5y
