Kim Jong-Un: SuperHuman
Kim Jong-Un: SuperHuman
Price: $2.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh so funny!, June 14, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is one of the funniest books I've read in a long time. In Kim Jong-Un: SuperHuman, the North Korean leader takes on superpowers as he grows from a young child into a man. It's really like a comic book story about Superman or some other super hero when Kim Jong-Un starts to fly and displays hands that emit electricity until there is no end to his powers. He must keep all of this secret, though, even when his father, Kim Jong-Il reluctantly allows him to go to school in Switzerland. Jong-Un is tired of staying home all the time and wants to see a bit of the world other than the inside of his father's palace.

If you know anything about Kim Jong-Un or if you don't, this will still be an hilarious book to read for laughs and funny mental images.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicate, feminine ring, June 14, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is the prettiest little ring that I wear on my little finger. It's small and very feminine. I ordered a size 7 but I could actually wear a 6. It isn't loose enough to fall off, though. It's sterling and is more delicate looking than the picture shows. The price is very good and I'm quite pleased with the purchase.


Missing You
Missing You
by Harlan Coben
Edition: Paperback
Price: $8.49

4.0 out of 5 stars A thrilling story that ties it all up in the end, June 14, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Missing You (Paperback)
Harlan Coben's Missing You kept me up late into the night until I had read 300 pages and up the next day to finish it. I thought that the story moved quickly. There are a few different stories going on at once and they shift back and forth, but you know they're all related by a thread that runs through them, but connecting the dots is hard. It all comes together in a thrilling ending that makes the reader wonder if anyone is going to make it.

It all starts when NYPD Detective Katarina "Kat" Donovan's best friend signs her up for a dating sight after Kat had her heart broken eighteen years ago and has never found anyone else. Kat hesitantly takes a look at the site and to her shock and surprise, she sees the photo and profile of the man who proposed to her eighteen years ago, then left her, breaking her heart. She never knew why Jeff left.

In the meantime people are going missing right and left and Kat must deal with one of those cases in addition to still looking for the person who murdered her policeman father years ago. There is a lot going on in this thrilling book that doesn't let up on the pace until the last sentence, but it kept me reading steadily until the end.

I've always liked Harlan Coben's books, some better than others, but this is one of my favorites.

5.0 out of 5 stars An entirely new enemy for Manny and crew, June 11, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Rick Murcer's newest book in his Manny Williams Thriller series, "Cajun Fire", takes Manny and his team into unknown territory and into a situation that they haven't dealt with so far. This novel is a crossroad for Manny and some other familiar characters including Sophie Lee. Sophie has her own set of problems to deal with, but when the team is asked to go to New Orleans, she and the others are ready except for Manny. He says he's tired of psychos and I can't say I blame him, but he finds the cause worthy of his time.

From this point on in the story we watch as Manny's team grows confused, then finally think they have the perpetrator in New Orleans figured out. He and the others are baffled by what this person intends to do but they know it's bad and on a scale they haven't seen before. Action picks up and so does the danger. The bodies stack up but at times it doesn't make a lot of sense. They are lured first to one place, then another as the hunt goes on.

This is an excellent novel that delves into the lives of the characters. We learn a lot about new characters as well as those we've known for a while now. One thing is for sure. The ending will blow you out of the water or else out of your reading chair!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice set of colored pencils, June 7, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These colored pencils are fine for coloring in the adult coloring books. They aren't quite as smooth as my Prismacolor pencils, but they do produce some nice colors. The only problem I've had with them is that the color of the outside of the pencil doesn't necessary match the color of the pencil when applied. It's been trial and error but I try them out on a piece of paper first to make sure they are the colors I intend to use. These are not soft core pencils, so the color is a bit harder to layer or to do shadowing with, so a darker one is what I use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very pretty color that I wear, June 7, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've used Clinique products for years, including lipsticks. This one, Different Lipstick in Sugared Grapefruit, is a tad bit lighter than the color shows in the description, but it is still a pretty color and I have been using it. I don't wear very light lip colors and this has enough color in it that it has a medium pink with a little orange in it. Usually I can't wear orange, but the pink overrides the orange and it looks nice for spring and summer. My two favorites in the Clinique line are Raspberry Glace and Guava Stain which I once read that Princess Diana liked and used.

I'm happy with the tube of Sugared Grapefruit because it is a little different from what I normally wear.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, but not in chronological order, June 7, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Wildflower (Kindle Edition)
I have always enjoyed Drew Barrymore's movies and remember her as a wild child in her younger days. She tells her stories of different times in her life and discusses how she got through the tough times and came out better for living through them. The book isn't written chronologically but skips back and forth in time which is a bit confusing. I did like the parts of the book when she talked about motherhood and her children because she seems so sincere about how she loves her two girls, Olive and Frankie. The same affections were expressed for her husband, but it was sad to recently hear that they are divorcing.

Drew seems to be an impulsive person who makes up her mind to go to another country and within hours she's on a plane headed to India or Africa.
She grew up with little parental involvement in her life but by age 6 she was cast in the movie "E.T. Extraterrestrial." In some passages about movies she is so involved with talking about her admiration for certain actors and producers that I think she overdoes it a bit.. From what she says in the book, she does pour heart and soul into what she takes on, and takes her work seriously. There are some very humorous parts in the book as well as serious and even sad ones. I enjoyed the book, but would have liked it better had it not skipped around so much in time.


The Poyson Garden. An Elizabeth I Mystery
The Poyson Garden. An Elizabeth I Mystery
by Karen Harper
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
Price: $6.99
89 used & new from $0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent historical fiction in the Elizabethan Age, June 7, 2016
The Poyson Garden by Karen Harper is the first book in the Elizabeth l Mystery series taking place in the 16th century when Elizabeth's half-sister, Mary (Bloody Mary) was Queen of England. Mary hoped to have a child of her own to be the heir to the throne, taking that away from Elizabeth for whom no love was lost. This is one of the best historical fiction books I've read in a long time, even though its copyright date is a while back. Elizabeth comes off the page as genuine and feisty, being able to make plans and include others in her household and beyond that she trusts in order to find out what is going on and who is behind the deaths she is trying to solve.

The book takes the reader to Hever Castle, home of Anne Boleyn and also to Leeds where Henry VIII once lived. There is a lot of information on herbs, which I enjoy reading about, and other aspects of life in the mid 1550s. I am anxious to find out the real identity of the character Meg, so I have ordered the next in the series, The Tidal Poole. This is a series that I want to read in its entirety.


The Last Lullaby: Hammarby Book 3
The Last Lullaby: Hammarby Book 3
Price: $9.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent plot; previous loose ends tied up, June 2, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Carin Gerhardsen's "The Last Lullaby" is the third book in her Hammarby series featuring Stockholm Criminal Investigator Conny Sjoberg.

This third book has a good new mystery and crime to be solved as well as the answers to some previous questions from the last book that were left hanging. All loose ends are tied up and concluded.

Conny and co-workers have their hands full when Conny finds the bodies of a mother and her two young children peacefully laid out on their bed, all three with their throats cut. The woman looks Asian, and the apartment she was living in is in a very affluent neighborhood where the apartments sell in the millions. Police find out that the woman is a Filipina and estranged from her much older husband who is depressed and sullen. At the same time the bodies are found, a member of the police force goes missing and Conny Sjoberg is very concerned about what has happened to his co-worker. No one knows if he's dead or alive.

Startling facts are revealed in the book and although there is a lot going on in addition to the main plot, the wrapping up of questions left from the previous book are interspersed throughout. If you haven't read the first two books, it will be confusing. This is a comples murder mystery that has a lot of twists and turns. Carin Gerhardsen has delivered another excellent Scandinavian crime novel that I thoroughly enjoyed.

5.0 out of 5 stars How North Korea is changing, May 23, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I found this to be an excellent source of information on many topics having to do with North Korea in today's world. The country is undergoing change because it has to if it is to survive. As a result of the famine in the mid-1990s, many people, especially women, found that the only way they could survive and earn a little money for a small amount of food for their family was to make a few rice cakes or cookies, biscuits, with what they had and then sell it in a little "market" with the food laid out on a cloth on the ground, which was illegal, but it made enough to buy more food for the family for that night's dinner.

Many things are still illegal in the DPRK that people tend to ignore and can easily hide, such as CDs, DVDs and flash drives. North Koreans are very fond of South Korean music, movies and TV shows, and also Western movies. These all have to be watched in secret, but their is a growing market for these goods that people smuggle in from China and South Korea.

The book explains the manner of dress that men and women are attracted to and also the conflict with the older generation of North Koreans who are much more conservative than today's young people. It is a very informative look about the DPRK that doesn't specifically concentrate on a person's defection or time in a prison camp, although it does discuss the latter a bit. The country is slowly changing because that is the only way that it can survive in today's world, and even though owning even a small business is illegal, the government now tends to look the other way and government workers as well as police and military are always willing to take bribes to allow the person to continue to do business. The old feudal state is gone and farmers are allowed to keep 30% of their crops, and the food rationing system has gone by the wayside, too. North Korea has a lot of catching up to do in their economy, government and the way they see the West, but it won't happen over night.

The authors have given a more positive outlook for the future of the DPRK and but it still has a long way to go. The book is easy to read and packed with good information.
