Review: Star Wars: Lando's Luck by Justina Ireland
Star Wars: Lando''s Luck - Justina Ireland

An all-new adventure starring Lando Calrissian and L3-37 onboard the Millennium Falcon.

When Lando Calrissian gets caught smuggling on the planet Hynestia, the queen agrees to let him go if he delivers something called the Solstice Globe to the Empire on her behalf. Lando is relieved that his punishment is a simple delivery mission-but he soon discovers things are not as simple as they seem. The queen's daughter, Princess Rinetta, has stowed away on the Millennium Falcon and demands Lando and L3-37 take the globe back to its home planet, which needs the globe to survive. Now Lando has to choose: Do what's right, or do what's best for Lando. But if he's lucky enough, he just might be able to do both....

 

 

 

*I received a free copy from the publisher and chose to leave a voluntary review. Thank you!*

 

 

I love Star Wars and the Star Wars universe. I'm not a mega fan like some people but I still like it and enjoy it very much. It is something I share with my kids and family. So when this book came up for review I was excited. Since I read some excerpts from the book and liked them I was even more excited.

That being said... I really enjoyed it for the most part but towards the end it seemed to drag a bit. It almost seemed stuck. Which slowed down the book and the pace of it a bit.

Some of the characters came over flat especially if they were not main characters, but overall they were fun and easy to follow.

If you know Star wars you know the world and it was fun revisiting them.... the book also had some very awesome and fun illustration that I enjoyed.

The book is rather short (for me) with under 200 pages but that will make it the perfect size for some kids. But I think the book is pretty much for young and old if you enjoy Star Wars.

Overall fun great book.... though it has some slow moments.

I rate it 3★

Importance of Graphic Design in the Web Designing Process

Website development is no easy undertaking. With so many details that go into the process, business and website owners are often faced with all kinds of pitfalls threatening to derail their progress. Perhaps one of the most important things that any business owner should remember whenever embarking on the web design process is that the website they are about to produce will play an integral role in promoting and establishing the company’s brand and reputation. This is especially true in this day and an age of digital revolution when clients tend to seek information online. A company’s website should, therefore, present a nice first impression of your brand to prospective clients. This is where graphic design plays a critical role in the web development process.

 

Good web design goes well beyond coding. After all, it isn’t a series of letter and number sequences that people see when they visit a website—they see text, images, buttons, and copies, which tell them exactly what the company is all about. This is exactly why graphic design plays a fundamental part in web design. It injects creativity into the web development process and at the same time supports your business’ branding strategy. Graphic design in the context of web development covers everything from a website’s background images to its banners, controls, buttons, colour scheming, graphical presentations, text style, and even the way that different pages flow.

 

Good graphic design can bring a great boost in your website’s visitor ship as well as its traffic retention. Being able to capture your audience’s attention is critical to increasing the chances of them converting or responding to your call to action. By enhancing your website’s visual appeal, you also improve people’s perception about your business’ professionalism, your brand value, as well as your authority in a particular field or niche. A well-designed website also enhances usability, enabling visitors to properly navigate between your pages and through your content. An  effective graphic design also makes your content more appealing and worth reading, while eliminating the usual complexities of web design that tend to confuse the focus of a website.

The Immortal's Unrequited Bride - Kelli Ireland

Not Ireland or Irish history that I recovnise. I also found myself having to read back a few pages occasionally to find out how I got to where I was reading. I have a sneaking suspicion that this is not a good author for me. Ethan Kemp is a healer, a medical doctor and a druid assassin (yeah that didn't sit right with me) who has to plead with a vengeful Lugh (yeah, that either) to release the spirit of his wife from another life Isibéal Cannavan who sacrificed herself to save him in a former life but he died anyway and she reckons she deserves a better life. It just didn't work for me, the relationship, the characters the setting, none of it worked. It was readable but I have no intention of revisiting.

 

Putting this in Dead Lands, it could also go into Ghost, Spellbound, and Paranormal.

Dread Nation
Dread Nation - Justina Ireland

Behold! The second ever zombie book I didn’t hate! Well, I still hated the zombies themselves, but it turns out when you throw them in a story full of interesting characters, a snarky not-so-reliable narrator, a rich historical setting, and skillful applications of critical race theory, I don’t mind them so much. The real monsters in this book are the living. The undead are just victims of circumstance.

 

Today in Darth Pony’s Pendant Corner: I’ll never love present tense and I occasionally found it jarring here, but it wasn’t too obnoxious. That and a teensy bit of repetition were the only drawbacks for me. When the sequel comes out (which I think has been pushed back to 2020), I’ll be ignoring my zombie dislike once again and buying a copy.

 

I read this for the Halloween Bingo 2018 New Release square.

Wow, 10 books in a month is good for me!

 

I'm reading more in the run up to Bingo. Some of these could even fit Bingo squares, but I have new choices.

 

Stand out books Are Legion and Hero at the Fall, both good Fantasy. Behind the Door and Blackbeard were also worthy.

 

3 non-fiction, of those Ireland the Best was excellent reference material and the others were each interesting in their own ways.

 

Funny enough, the two well known Fantasy writers were the disappointments.

 

I was getting close to finishing all current reads, then a couple more got approved at Netgalley. At least I'm going to have plenty of good stuff to read for the next couple of months!
