Funny and Fast
F in Exams: The Funniest Test Paper Blunders - Richard Benson

I am loving some of the answers to the questions. It shows that the kids are thinking, they are just not thinking of the answers for the test. I am thinking of writing down the questions and using them for school next year with the kids. I think they will learn more from these and having to find the answers than if I lecture on the subjects. I am also using the I teach you, you teach her, she teaches her and then the last teaches me. I read that writing with blue ink and having to be able to teach to another works best for remembering.

The Kiss Test $1.49
The Kiss Test - Shannon McKelden

 

Margo Gentry's life is perfect. She loves her job as a DJ for Manhattan's only country music station, and she has a great boyfriend who accepts her need to avoid marriage and her Elvis obsession—even the velvet Elvis painting in their bedroom.

 

But then it all falls apart. The radio station changes formats and fires all the DJs. Margo's boyfriend decides he wants kids and a house in the suburbs and kicks her to the curb. And to top it all off, her Mom is getting married—for the 11th time!—and expects Margo to be there as maid of honor.

 

With no job and no place to live, Margo has to bunk on the couch of her best friend, Chris, whose bedroom has hosted half the women in New York—at least, the ones who pass his "kiss test." Worse, he's insisting she attend her mother's wedding, and he's personally driving her cross-country to ensure she shows up.

 

Forget about surviving the road trip—can their friendship survive The Kiss Test?

BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - The Makeup Test (Ritter University #6) by Vanessa M. Knight
The Makeup Test - Vanessa M. Knight

Parker Breckinridge is a sophomore in college and already running her own internet cosmetics business. She doesn’t apologize for her successes—or anything else. She’s worked hard to get what where she is. She’s had to. It’s not like there was anything else in her life, despite her rich family.

Cade Adler doesn’t do relationships—especially relationships with uptight princesses. Been there. Done that. Destroyed the T-shirt. Besides, what with working full-time as a police officer and going to school, who has time for women? Not him.

With his tattoos and overall attitude, Cade is exactly what Parker doesn’t need. And between her father’s money and her piss-poor attitude, Parker is exactly what Cade doesn’t need.

So why is it they can’t stay apart?

The Inkblots
The Inkblots: Hermann Rorschach, His Iconic Test, and The Power of Seeing - Damion Searls

This title immediately interested me, even though I've always been skeptical about the Rorschach test. I've however never taken one, and I hold a degree in neither psychiatry nor psychology. But I'm a scientist, so the parts where Rorschach is optimizing his test (stating he needs many more subjects both healthy and diseases, blind interpretation of tests and a standardized form of scoring good and bad answers) were among my favorites, as it seemed quite far ahead of his time.

The book however, is more of a dual biography of Rorschach but especially his test. I liked the first part (also see above) which focused on Rorschach as he's developing his test. After his untimely death in the 1920s (which is only halfway through the book) the focus changes to what happened to the test afterwards.

This latter part had great trouble to hold my interest. It seemed to contain a series of always new people quarreling about who is the new Rorschach. It is here that the test starts to falter in the hands of people who all want to prove themselves (some trying to standardize it but resulting in over diagnosis of most everyone), although I was quite shocked to find out it can be used as evidence in court (since it is not an unquestioned test). This part is also filled with quite a lot of other test and terms from personality testing, not all of it is explained well enough that it is not confusing.

All in all, I really enjoyed the biography of Rorschach, I didn't quite like the one about his test as much.

Thanks to Blogging for Books and Edelweiss for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

Getting Better But Still Lite
The Beta's Test: M/M & M/M/M/M/M Werewolf Pack Alpha/Beta/Omega Romance (The Protection of the Pack Book 3) - Dessa Lux

This was a fun way to end this series and in my opinion, the best because Lux invested a solid amount of time exploring and developing Nick’s character. Brody was an excellent counterpoint for Nick but we didn’t really get a deep look at all of Brody-bummer. The little mystery could have been handled with more care but I guess this is all there is and the ending was abrupt if you ask me. I didn’t get why they did what they did. This was fun don’t get me wrong, I never looked away from the page and that’s a good thing. I’m wondering if Lux has it in her to become a stronger writer. This definitely gave me a hint that she could if…

 

The Protection of the Pack #4 is really part of #3. It is too aimless to stand alone. So I'll treat it as such.
