Review: Silhouette by Justin Richards

Books are great. What can make a book better? Adding Doctor Who to it, of course.  From the great people at Blogging for Books I was given the chance to read Doctor Who: Silhouette by Justin Richards.  Having never read a Doctor Who book I was hoping it would be a decent read. I was not disappointed. It was like a written episode of Doctor Who.

Reading Silhouette felt like Doctor Who had been crossed with a whodunit novel, which for me was great. The 12th Doctor, Clara, Victorian England. What more do you need?  I had a good time reading this book. It was an easy relaxing read.  I would recommend this book to anyone who is a Doctor Who fan.

Without giving away the whole story, you have the Doctor, Clara, and a few acquaintances trying to track down who is behind a few bizarre murders. Lots of Whovian fun.

I only have two negatives to say about this book. One is there were a few typos that annoyed me. Second, if you don't know anything about the Whoverse, you might be confused while reading this. There really isn't any back story given about the main characters so if you don't know who they are, what a Tardis is or a sonic screw driver, this probably won't be the book for you.

Skintimate Shave Gel

Summer is just about over but that doesn't mean your legs can't be silky smooth.  I keep my legs smooth and moisturized with Skintimate Shave Gel.  This is a product I tend to use a lot anyway but recently I was given the chance by Crowdtap to try Skintimate's Mandarin Burst Moisturizing Shave Gel for free.  Of course I jumped at the chance to get into this sampling because I love to try new scents from products I already use.

The upsides to this product is that it works really well.  The lather is amazing.  I grew up having to use horrible shaving cream. There is not enough words to describe how much I detest shaving cream and how much better shaving gel is.  I got a smooth shave with no nicks or irritation when I used this shave gel.  It was another great shave gel from Skintimate.

The only thing I did not like about this product was the scent.  Don't get me wrong, it didn't smell awful at all. It was a very nice scent...if you like that kind of smell in your bath and body products.  I am just a bit sick of feminine products smell like fruit or overly thick flowers.  If you do like fruity smelling products this one is for you.

*I was given the shave gel free from Crowdtap to try. The opinions in this post are mine and mine alone.  I was not paid to give this opinion*
