Yodamom Finds her Force

The greatest adventure is what lies ahead.
Today and tomorrow are yet to be said.
The chances, the changes are all yours to make.
The mold of your life is in your hands to break.

Mr. King is a Genius

11/22/63 - Stephen King

Frustration ! OMg I was inner screaming at these time traveler to move, act, jump, run, think, run, run, or just do it now, through the whole story. it was a bit overwhelming with all the time line crossovers and realignments etc, but Mr. King hit a home run with this book. It just boggles the mind thinking about all the little things that could cause massive changes int he future if altered. Going back to that time felt so real, it was written so visually. The ending was bittersweet, and left me feeling like I'd been battered a bit too.
Excellent audiobook, fantastic narration.

Good But Not As Good as the Anime

Psycho Pass: Inspector Shinya Kogami Volume 1 - Midori Gotu, Natsuo Sai

Great illustrations, easy to read emotions.
Interesting to see the prequel, and the back story. I found some of the dialog hard to figure out who was saying what a few times. I prefer the anime to the manga myself it just didn't have the same fun level.

Vegetarian Viet Nam - Cameron Stauch

I'm not sure about this right now. This is a spouse of a diplomate living in Vietnam. He is not a native, he's a Canadian chef not even a vegetarian but an observer. I lived near Little Saigon in CA for many years and wanted authentic flavors like I got there. I hope he sticks to traditional flavors as much as possible.

A Touch Too Much Game Playing

Neanderthal Marries Human - Penny Reid

3.5 The courtship was fabulous, they fell and here they go to the next step. Yes, they go there to wedding-ville in a round about, beat each other into the bushes, test, test, test, and make me want to scream "this is not worth it" in utter frustration. Janie, with her tests, ARGUH !!! It went too far for me in this book. I admit to having a bit of a hate relationship with weddings/planning them and sure that tainting my views. She made everything so hard, in such ridiculous ways. Luckily it didn't last that long and the story went on for some chuckles, snuggles and cuddles. The Vegas bachelorette party was hilarious, the outcome, well it was a LOL shock. The story moved on a touch for a few of future couples. It also opened a giant can of Family drama worms for Janie and Quinn.
I enjoyed this, not as much as the first book but it was fun and I'm glad I got to see their relationship go on. I'm just not a fan of game playing for testing someones love and commitment.
