Not the Usual
Mr Mercedes - Stephen King

I don't know how any reader could not love Stephen King. 


This was far from the normal for him, yet not stretched.  Just like with many of his novels, I found myself chuckling throughout.  His sense of humor and delivery is always perfect.  He's not pretentious, doesn't get caught up on vocabulary (screw the big words with complex definitions) and he describes his characters like know other.  You can't help but get a vivid picture of each of them.


I hear the sequel, Finders Keepers takes us a little ways back in time.  It takes us to the old Misery style of writing.  Let's see how that goes. #StephenKing #MrMercedes #ReadingKeepsMeSane

4 full moons - "Dare to Resist" by Laura Kaye
Dare to Resist (a Wedding Dare novella) (Entangled Brazen) - Laura Kaye

Dare to Resist is the prequel to the Wedding Dare series, and Laura Kaye did an amazing job on starting off the series with how the Bride and Groom end up together…finally.  Yup…I said finally because these two were stubborn at first.  One more than the other.

Dare to Resist is a short novella that can be read in one day or even less, depending if you have free time to read it.  I had to keep stopping due to other obligations, but once I was done Laura Kaye left me wanting the next book from the next author.

Kady Dresco and Colton Brooks have known each other FOREVER, due to Colton being best friends with Kady’s brother.  Kady has had a crush on him for a long time, but Colton is torn between hooking up with Kady or strangling her due to her personality (she is his best friend’s little sister).  He doesn’t want to ever hurt Kady and he feels she could do better.  Colton has no clue what the real Kady is like though, even when he’s known her forever.  When they are forced to stay in the same room together at a motel during a monsoon…he will definitely find out more about Kady he had no idea about.

I could go on and on telling you the story, but not going to happen.  =)  No spoilers here.

Laura does an amazing job on having me adore both characters in Dare to Resist.  Kady is one female who has her head on her shoulders and for someone working in the field she does, she knows how to handle working in a male-dominant field.  The opening scene in the book had me rooting for her.

Colton is one sexy dominant male who knows what he likes in the bedroom.  Can I also say…I fell for even harder when he was described wearing his glasses after taking his contacts out.  Girls…geeks/nerds are where it is.  Colton is your intelligent, sexy alpha guy who will definitely fall for in Dare to Resist.  His reaction of what he found out about Kady though had me a little upset.  Don’t get upset, mister…and don’t get Kady upset.  But…I can see why he reacted the way he did.  He wasn’t expecting it.  Never underestimate the sweet girl….ever.  =)

The minute that Kady and Colton stop all the sexual tension between them…let’s just say prepare for a cold shower after wards. These two have pent up sexual tension from years ago. What happens after all those years of tension?  Yup…you can guess it.  =)  Their scenes together are going to be HOT!

I loved being introduced to the couple that plays a part in the Wedding Dare series…how the bridesmaids of the couple’s wedding party is going to have their own books.  I look forward to reading the rest of the series from each of the other authors.  Although, you don’t get introduced to the couple’s friends/family in this book…it only makes it more exciting to find out what the other authors are going to do in their books.

I give this book 4 full moons and highly recommend it to Contemporary romance readers out there.

Oh and let me say….I adore Kady and Colton’s jobs.  Yes…another book that has computer jobs involved.  I’m a computer geek, so when characters work in the IT field…I’m in HEAVEN!  =)

I received a complimentary copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

iWoz - Steve Wozniak,Gina Smith Well, as far as a biography goes, there isn’t all that much and what there is, is only adding to the impression of a somewhat disjointed personality.

The impression this book left me was an attempt to set the record straight, which is never a good thing in a biography.

Writing-wise the book is awful. Repetition ad nauseam, boasting, etc. We don't really get to know the man behind all those achievements, that is, the universal remote control, Apple I, Apple II, Apple III (Ahem, sorry, my mistake, this one was "invented" by a committe lead by Steve Jobs, ah ah).

If you're really interested to know the Wozniak's personal take on the "invention" of the personal computer, go ahead and read it. If not, there's already a all bunch of information on the web, where the record is already straight... Stick to it.

iWoz: Computer Geek to Cult Icon: How I Invented the Personal Computer, Co-Founded Apple, and Had Fun Doing It
iWoz - Steve Wozniak,Gina Smith This is book is very worthwhile to read... but perhaps for not the most obvious reasons. It is not well written. Understanding Steve Wozniak's distrust of people who tell the story of the founding of Apple and get it wrong, I think he decided to write this book himself and not trust anyone who might twist it into something else. He is an engineer, in the truest and best sense, and he is an introvert. These things come out in the book, and make it a much different read perhaps than might be expected. Don't expect emotional misty eyed passages as Woz and Steve Jobs create Apple.... expect the nuts and bolts of things an engineer finds fascinating. He corrects some wrong information out there about Apple and himself. One correction, he did finish college. It has been reported widely that he dropped out and never got a college degree. That's wrong. Another correction, he designed and built both the Apple I and Apple II computers himself without help. Also, he never quit Apple out of anger or bitterness. He did leave Apple to start another company, but he actually is still an Apple employee.So read it in the interest of finding out the accurate history, from a man who was there and made it happen.One of my favorite quotes from the back of the book that made me laugh is one from Guy Kawasaki who wrote "The Art of the Start and Rules for Revolutionaries" :"It is, in a nutshell, the engineer's manifesto. I hope that the so-called 'innovation experts' and MBA's choke when they read it."
