Kiss Kiss Bang by Sidney Halston (Iron Clad Security #3)

Kiss Kiss Bang: An Iron Clad Security Novel (Iron-clad Security) by [Halston, Sidney]4 Stars

One thing I love is when a series of books is truly standalone and I can just jump in anywhere and not feel lost. Iron Clad Security is a great example of that, because I had never read a Sidney Halston book prior to Kiss Kiss Bang but I  was able to read this with no sense of loss. Even better is that I actually want to go back and read the other books that are earlier in the series.

The chemistry in this book was real and I LOVE good chemistry. Joey was such a great character and had pretty much every trait I love in a hero. My favorite moments were those where he was interacting with Livie’s daughter Sophie. His immediate love for her was swoonworthy. I had a harder time connecting with Livie. I’m not sure why but it wasn’t enough to detract from the book. I look forward to reading more from Sidney Halston.

Random Illustrated Facts: A Collection of Curious, Weird, and Totally Not Boring Things to Know by Mike Lowery

Random Illustrated Facts: A Collection of Curious, Weird, and Totally Not Boring Things to Know by [Lowery, Mike] 5 Stars

This is an absolutely fun book with funny little doodles combined with out of this world facts. I enjoyed this a bite at a time though it would be easy to plow through it in a very short time if one wanted. I think a very wide range of people could love this book as much as I did. It’s a joy to look at and very entertaining too. I’m starting a list of gifts to give to people that you don’t know what to buy… and this is going on that list.

So many of the facts were so incredible that I wanted to fact check them. I didn’t check every one, but from what I did I didn’t find any that seemed incorrect. Consider this book if you need a little break in your reading. I certainly enjoyed it.

Cells Are the New Cure by Robin L. Smith & Max Gomez

Cells Are the New Cure: The Cutting-Edge Medical Breakthroughs That Are Transforming Our Health by [Robin L. Smith, MD, Max Gomez, PhD] 5 Stars

I don’t usually read non-fiction, but when I do I want it to be both informative and hopeful. This book is so much of both that I hope a followup is written in a few years once the various studies are starting to wrap up.

I am definitely a layperson but I do enjoy medicine & science. For the most part this book was easy to follow and understand. A few of the concepts were a bit beyond my grasp, but I still understood the “why” of what was going on even if I didn’t understand exactly “how” things worked. What is important about this book is that it made me excited for the future of medicine. Of the 11 most recent deaths in my family 8 were from cancer and 2 were heart disease. Incredible research is being done on both of those diseases with many of the things they are doing sounding more like science fiction than real life.

If you enjoy science or medicine you should definitely try this book out. I found myself starting conversations with people about the topics I read in this book because the information is too good not to pass on.
