Siri for Dummies By Marc Saltzman Review

Siri for Dummies

By Marc Saltzman

The name is pretty self-explanatory but if you don’t know who or what Siri is then here is a breakdown:

Siri is a built in assistant for iPhone 4s with voice recognition capabilities that can do anything and everything you could want from a phone.

 Siri for Dummies by Marc Saltzman

Siri and I have a love/hate relationship; I often refer to her in terms not appropriate for my blog. I am not the most tech savvy person in town so Siri would often pop up without my knowing how in the world I did it. So when this book came up for review I jumped at the chance, I am definitely one of those people who need it. I whipped out my handy dandy iphone gave it the evil eye for good measure and got to work.  This is the first time I have read a “for Dummies” book even though there are, according to wikipedia, over 2,300 titles. I absolutely loved the way Marc Saltzman broke everything down step by step, from calling someone to emailing more than one contact at a time, he covers everything you could possibly want to know. At first I stumbled a few times and it took me a few tries to get the commands down, to no fault of Marc’s I have a southern accent and Siri apparently hates the way I speak, in the end I made it through and loved what I am now able to accomplish is such a short time with the help of this guide. Definitely worth the read if you are like me and Siri brings out the “squinty eyes of death.”

Tricked by Kevin Hearne, Narrated by Luke Daniels Review

Tricked

Iron Druid Chronicles Book Four

By Kevin Hearne

Narrated by Luke Daniels

Atticus O’Sullivan is back, this time he is paying a debt to the Navajo trickster god Coyote after Coyote takes on Atticus’ form to help him fake his death. Atticus must move some earth, in this case gold. But as is the norm for a trickster god the simple task of moving some earth comes with a twist.

Tricked (The Iron Druid Chronicles, Book #4)

 This is not one of those books that will forever change your life after you read it but it will however entertain you immensely for eleven hours as you listen to the quirky commentary, fast paced action, and absurd scenarios all brought to life by Luke Daniels amazing narration. Kevin Hearne has created a series that is absolutely hilarious yet has intense action scenes as the Druid seems to always find himself in trouble. This novel has a certain twist, which I must keep to myself as it will most definitely spoil a part of the book, that is so unexpected yet you wonder why you didn’t think of it in the first place. I love this series, but the best experience I have had is in listening to the narration. Luke Daniels is phenomenal in bringing to life each of the characters with his ability to seamlessly switch from one voice to the next, from the western accent to Oberon’s voice this is a must listen.

If I Were You by Lisa Renee Jones

If I Were You

Inside Out Trilogy Book One

By Lisa Renee Jones

Sara McMillan’s roommate has recently bought a storage unit full of a woman’s journals. Sara begins reading and is soon shocked and enthralled by what is held within the pages, the writer of the journals led an exciting and highly erotic life. When Sara comes to the sinister and terrifying final entry, she is determined to seek out Rebecca to at least make sure she is safe. Sara finds herself immersing herself into Rebacca’s life, working at her former job and socializing with the same people, even two sexy men who both want Sara in every way possible.

 If I Were You (Inside Out Trilogy, #1)

Man this novel jumps right into it, with the opening pages we are drawn into the journal ourselves with each steamy and intense action that is played through the words the author of the journal had written. I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book but I am glad I was sent a copy for review this is a fantastic book, with highly erotic scenes interspersed with a highly suspenseful plotline this is by far one of the best romance novels I have read. I cannot wait to find out what happens next since Lisa Renee Jones left off this book with one of the most heart pounding cliff hangers, making me love and hate her all at the same time.
