Make Me Want - Katee Robert

 

The fantasy comes to life. Katee Robert has a knack for allowing readers to live vicariously through her imagination. Whether naughty, dangerous or heartbreaking, her characters call to the little voice inside yearning to escape. Make Me Want is a passionate tango of lust, love and liberation. One woman's quest to unlock her inner vixen, brings her heart's desire. HOT!

Baby Daddy by Kendall Ryan
Baby Daddy - Kendall Ryan

 

Who's fooling who? Are they fooling each other or themselves? Of course fate is pulling all the strings, but are these two control freaks ready to relinquish control. Kendall Ryan has a unique voice. One idea sets the bench mark for seduction and encompasses an endearing tale of sensuality and self-discovery, while tickling you funny bone at the same time. Emmett and Jenna bring the tension, arrogance, frustration and sexuality, but the two factors that made the craziness worthwhile is Ms. Ryan's attention to two equally important details. She let the sunshine in with her humorous delivery and her heartwarming characters. Baby Daddy is a must read.

Lone Star Lovers (Dallas Billionaires Club) by Jessica Lemmon
Lone Star Lovers (Dallas Billionaires Club) - Jessica Lemmon

 

If love makes things happen, denial must get the ball rolling. When it comes to matters of the heart Zach and Penelope are the worst of liars. If actions speak louder than words, why aren't they listening? Lone Star Lovers is an amusing reintroduction to a couple of old friends. Fire has begun to melt the ice, but the real complications have yet to begin. The true gift of an author is to take you out of the real world and entangled you in your imagination. Jessica Lemmon has that gift. Saucy and sweet.

Most Enjoyable
Food: A Cultural Culinary History - Ken Albala

I am enjoying listening to this series of lectures so much that I don't want to stop to listen to the couple of chapters of Cosmos that I just promised myself I would intersperse with my other reading. I'm enjoying it so much that I can almost forgive this college professor his frequent mispronunciation of words like "arbiter." It is not "AR-bite-er. 

 

Food is essential to our being (without it we died) yet when we study history in the classroom, we rarely approach events in anything but political terms, so it is very interesting (and myth-busting) to approach our past from the point of view of what was being hunted, gathered, cultivated, traded and consumed. Please don't think that this is just a fluffy series of lectures; it is well grounded in events and contemporary original texts.

 

BTW, this may also be about food and eating but it is nothing like Consider the Fork, which I also read recently. They compliment one another.

Review: I'm a Lebowski, You're a Lebowski: 20th Anniversary by Ben Peskoe, Bill Green, Will Russell, Scott Shuffitt
I'm a Lebowski, You're a Lebowski: 20th Anniversary - Jesse Russell,Bill Green,Ben Peskoe,Scott Shuffitt

On the twentieth anniversary of the Coen brothers' cult classic film, the ultimate fan's guide to The Big Lebowski, with a foreword by the Dude himself, Jeff Bridges, and a new afterword by writer and film critic Daphne Merkin.

 

When it was first released in 1998, The Big Lebowski flopped at the box office. Twenty years later, the movie has developed a massive, passionate, and cross-generational cult following of Lebowski fans (a.k.a. Achievers), who yearly coalesce around Lebowski Fest, the film-screening/party where bowling pins tumble, costumes abound, and White Russians are the official drink of choice--"kind of a 'Star Trek' convention, but without all the geeks"(Associated Press).

 

Written by the Founding Dudes of Lebowski Fest--and with a foreword by El Duderino himself, Jeff Bridges--this new edition of I'm a Lebowski, You're a Lebowski also features contemporary reflections on the movie by acclaimed writer and former New Yorker film critic Daphne Merkin. This is the fan book to tie every Achiever's room together, a treasure trove of trivia and commentary, illustrations, photos, interviews with every major cast member (plus the real-life inspirations for the Coen-created characters), highlights from the Fest, a handy Achiever translation guide, and tips on how to Dude-ify your life. I'm a Lebowski, You're a Lebowski is a raucous and hilarious celebration of the greatest film ever made (condolences, Citizen Kane) and of the glorious revelry that continues in its two-decade wake.

 

 

If you were a fan of the movie then this book is a must read. If you have not watched it, watch it and then come back and read the book. But really either way you should be familiar with the movie.

The book was almost a guide to the movie and it was fun and very enjoyable to read. What can you expect from the book? A lot. Obviously humor and a whole lot more. We get a good look behind the scenes, many pictures of scenes, characters and locations. As well interviews with the cast and crew. Plus some other really fun stuff.

Overall, like I said if you liked the movie you will love this book.

I rate it 5★ it was quick, fun and very informative read.
