Review: Invincible Iron Man Vol. 1: Reboot
Invincible Iron Man, Volume 1: Reboot - Brian Michael Bendis

Title: Invincible Iron Man Vol. 1: Reboot
Author: Brian Michael Bendis
Series: Invincible Iron Man (2015), 1
Format: ebook
Length: N/A
Rating: 3 stars

 

Synopsis: One of the most popular super heroes in the world soars to fresh heights! Tony Stark has a new armor, a new supporting cast, new villains and a new purpose that's going to tear itself across the entire Marvel Universe and beyond. It begins with a shocker of a twist and only gets more surprising from there, with the return of one of Tony's biggest nemeses and the quest to find his biological parents! As Iron Man chases Madame Masque, her actions threaten to rip all of reality apart! Shellhead's incredible armor will be put through its paces in a story that will shock and awe — but it is who exactly Tony teams up with that will have everyone talking.

 

Favourite character: Tony
Least favourite character: Whitney

 

Mini-review: I prefer Black Cat. Can we go back to her showing up in every comic book? This was going along great until the last few pages, then it stopped being enjoyable.

I loved the Awesome Facial Hair Bros (I saw that on the internet a lot too). I loved Friday and Mary Jane's cameo.

BOOK 1 - RECKLESS
 
 
 
 
Reckless (Pier 70, #1)Reckless by Nicole Edwards
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Gannon Burgess met Cam Strickland when he and his assistant walked into Cam's place of business. They wanted to hire a boat to go out for a couple hours team building. Gannon and Cam are attracted from the first look.

Gannon has not cared to have a personal life in some time. He has been busy with his company and getting out top level video games to the market. Most love interests cannot compete with that, nor do they wish to. Owning your own business takes more time than most people think. Then he meets Cam, and his priorities start to shift. He wants to spend all his time with him.

Cam feels the same way. He owns a business with his partners that takes just about every day to run. With very little time off, he has not had an interest in a long term partner. He does not mind playing the field. After meeting Gannon, that all changes.

I loved this start to the new Pier 70 series. It has something for everyone. I loved the characters warmth, dedication to their jobs, friends and each other. I loved just about everything about it. I do not want to spoil the book for you - but the HEA in this one jut made me feel darn good!

BOOK 2 - FEARLESS
 
 
 
Fearless (Pier 70, #2)Fearless by Nicole Edwards
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book # 2 in the Pier 70 series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. If you plan to read the series, however, read it in order. There are spoilers in later books.

Noah and Dare have known one another from their younger years. They were a couple once upon a time. Before the break up, that is.

Dare is setup at the wedding of a friend. To his surprise, Noah is the man he is set up with. He cannot escape from him or his feelings on this ship.

Can they get over the past and find one another again? This is a great story of love and loss. I found it very compelling. The characters were fun and the book has a lot of heat.

BOOK 3 - SPEECHLESS
 
 
 
Speechless (Pier 70, #3)Speechless by Nicole Edwards
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is the 3rd book in the Pier 70 series. The Pier 70 boys are back! You can read this book as a standalone novel. It will however, have spoilers from previous books if they were not read in order. As always, I recommend reading series book in the order intended for reader enjoyment and understanding.

Hudson and Teague work together and see each other most every day. Lately, the tension between the two could be cut with a knife. Could it be there is more going on in the shop then just repairs?

Teague has a hard time trusting. He also does not believe that anyone could love him. His own parents didn't. When Hudson and their friends try to convince him of his worth.... will he take the time to listen?

Such a sincere and sweet book with some serious HOT inside! This is a great story that winds you up and gets you going. Hudson and Teague are great together!

AND COMING MARCH 28th, 2017....
 
 

HARMLESS!

 

 The final book in this HOT MM Romance!

 
 

 
 
 
Harmless (Pier 70, #4)Harmless by Nicole Edwards
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #4, in the Pier 70 series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and understanding, without the spoilers, I recommend reading in order.

Roan has a past with Colton AKA Seg, a past he wants no one to know about. Aside from the pain and humiliation it brings, it could be detrimental to Colton's career. Roan knows that nothing short of a miracle would change things. He also knows he has too much on his plate now to look back.

Colton has never wanted anything the way he wants just a chance of a future with Roan. One that does not seem to be mutual. Can he change the man's mind before it's too late?

There is so much to this story. I was eagerly turning pages. This book has rich characters with serious heart. The story also calls for some heat. Really good read with characters you can enjoy again and again. This will be one I add to my permanent shelf.

Invincible Iron Man, Volume 1: Reboot
Invincible Iron Man, Volume 1: Reboot - Brian Michael Bendis It's fine. I enjoyed this arc as much for the new, improved Victor as I did for Tony's stuff. And I know his memory got rebooted to pre-Civil War Tony but he has to know who Mary Jane is. I don't mean KNOW HER but I'm I remember him going over the records of what happened during CW and saying "Yep, I'm sorry about all that but I wouldn't change anything". Hmph.

Undead Teenagers in Texas: Reboot | Review
Reboot - Amy Tintera,Khristine Hvam,HarperAudio

A YA SciFi Dystopia that defied my first impression

 

Five years ago, Wren Connolly was shot three times in the chest. After 178 minutes, she came back as a Reboot: stronger, faster, able to heal, and less emotional. The longer Reboots are dead, the less human they are when they return. Wren 178 is the deadliest Reboot in the Republic of Texas. Now 17 years old, she serves as a soldier for HARC (Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation)

 

Wren's favorite part of the job is training new Reboots, but her latest newbie - Callum Reyes - is the worst she's ever seen. As a 22, Callum is practically human. His reflexes are too slow, he's always asking questions, and his ever-present smile is freaking her out. Yet, he's still her newbie. When Callum refuses to follow an order, Wren is given one last chance to get him in line - or she'll have to eliminate him. Wren has never disobeyed before and knows that if she does, she'll be eliminated, too. But she has also never felt as alive as she does around Callum.

BOOK DETAILS:

Reboot by Amy Tintera, read by Khristine Hvam, published by HarperAudio (2013) / Length: 8 hrs 42 min

 

SERIES INFO:

This is Book #1 of the Reboot duology. Book #2, Rebel, is already out and also available on audio.

 

SUMMARY:

The first time I read this book, I liked it OK but didn't plan to buy it (I had borrowed a Kindle copy from the library). However, I just kept thinking about it. So, I decided to borrow the audio version. I liked it even more this time, and ended up decided it was something I would re-listen to (my criteria for purchase).

 

I'm not 100% sure why it stuck with me. Wren is a great protagonist, despite being the currently typical "physically kickbutt and emotionally stunted" heroine. And I like that she is actually fine being where and what she is. Callum isn't your typical YA hero, which is nice; and he's got guts and convictions.

 

I am tagging this with Diversity, since Callum is Hispanic (although it is never a plot point) and Wren has disfiguring scars.

Review: The Reboot with Joe Juice Diet Cookbook by Joe Cross
The Reboot with Joe Juice Diet Cookbook: Juice, Smoothie, and Plant-powered Recipes Inspired by the Hit Documentary Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead - Joe Cross

Published by: Greenleaf Book Group

ISBN: 9781626341371

Source: Netgalley

Rating: 5*

Synopsis:
Since releasing his documentary, Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead, in 2010--which became a worldwide sensation--Joe Cross has become a tireless advocate for the power of juicing. The Reboot with Joe Juice Diet brings us his story of overcoming obesity, poor health, and bad habits and presents success stories from others whose lives he has touched.

Cross--who lost a hundred pounds and discontinued all his medications by following his own plan--walks the reader through his life before juicing, candidly sharing his self-defeating attitude toward food and fitness.

The Reboot with Joe Juice Diet Cookbook, the sequel to The Reboot with Joe Juice Diet, provides readers with more plant-powered recipes that they can use with the Reboot Juice Diet plans or any time for a healthy meal along with juicing and cooking information and inspiration.

Review:
This cookbook is one of the most comprehensive of its kind that I've come across. The sheer attention to detail is superb - alongside each recipe for a juice, smoothie, salad, soup or cooked meal is the nutritional breakdown and a list of medical conditions that may be helped. There are instructions on how to make a juice, including specific guidance on how to juice just about every fruit and vegetable known to man. There are also details on the best way to store juices, buying produce and how to prepare/cook it, and suitable individual fruits/vegetables to swap. The juices are colour-coded, making it effortless to substitute one for the other, and there is even a list of suggestions on how to use pulp! Joe Cross really has thought of EVERYTHING! I've been juicing for years and still managed to pick up quite a lot of information. The photos of the juices and meals are clear, giving a comprehensible idea of how the finished recipe should look; judging by my efforts, the photos are pretty true to life.

 

At the back of the book there are some great resources to point you in the right direction post-Reboot. Resources include a list of cookbooks by people such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Dr Joel Fuhrman. There is even some information for your doctor, together with a link to a downloadable PDF which can be printed out, should you want to give your doctor a hard copy. I think this is a really good idea, and something I've not seen in any other similar book (and I've seen quite a lot!). There is also some medical information, and a background on Joe Cross too. The resources section is a nice touch and rounds off this cookbook very nicely.

 

I think this would be an ideal book for those looking to get into juicing, whether to lose weight or improve their health, or both. It contains just about everything you need, from straightforward instructions on how to make a juice, to medical information, and everything in between. The recipes are yummy too!
