"Dear Luke, We Need to Talk, Darth" (a hilarious review by Lexi)

Hello, Lovelies!!!

Lexi again! Today's book is a little out of the norm for me, as I usually focus on YA books. However, this book needs a spotlight on here. It's Dear Luke, We Need to Talk, Darth: And Other Pop Culture Correspondences by John Moe.

Summary: "We all know how Darth Vader shared his big secret with Luke Skywalker, but what if he had delivered the news in a handwritten note instead? And what if someone found that letter, as well as all of the drafts that landed in the Dark Lord’s trash can? In the riotously funny collection Dear Luke, We Need to Talk. Darth, John Moe finally reveals these lost notes alongside all the imagined letters, e-mails, text messages, and other correspondences your favorite pop culture icons never meant for you to see.
 From The Walking Dead to The Wizard of Oz, from Billy Joel to Breaking Bad, no reference escapes Moe’s imaginative wit and keen sense of nostalgia." (Thank you, Goodreads!!!)

This entire book was hilarious. I literally laughed out loud, and I couldn't stop smiling! I loved every single thing in this book, from the many attempts at a letter by Darth to Luke, to the Yelp! ad for The Bates Motel (from "Psycho")! There were so many gems in here that will make you laugh until you cry! Everything is relevant, and they even have "Breaking Bad" and "The Wizard of Oz" (Dorthy to Glenda). Even if you're not a fan of the movies or shows, you'll still think this book is hilarious.

In Conclusion: Warning: Read at your own risk; you may die laughing!
