Doctor Who: The Crawling Terror Review

Yes, I am addicted to Doctor Who.  I've already read and reviewed two Doctor Who books so I thought I might as well finished off the trio.  I recently received The Crawling Terror by Mike Tucker featuring the Twelfth Doctor and Clara Oswald.

The Crawling Terror brings the 12th Doctor and Clara to the town of Ringstone where large mutant bugs are terrorizing the citizens. Not only does the Doctor show up to investigate, but so do the military.  Can the Doctor figure out what is going on and save the town before the military decides to take matter into their own hands? Read and find out.

I was unsure about reading this book because I hate spiders, but I gave in because I love Doctor Who.  The beginning of this book creeps me out. Big nasty spiders. *shudder*  Once I got past the creep out factor I really enjoyed this book. I liked how the plot didn't just stay in the present. They bounced to the past too.  It had a really great story line and it totally felt like it could be a Doctor Who episode, which is what I think really makes it part of the Whoverse.

I am still getting used to the 12th Doctor but in the books he makes a pretty good Doctor.  Definitely different than the other incarnations like the 10th and 11th but still entertaining.

If you like Doctor Who, this is a wonderful read and I recommend it.

Crowdtap Sampling: Advil-Film Coated

Ah the Fall.  The time of year for pumpkins, trick or treating, and headaches.  The constant weather changing in the south always give me a headache so I was thrilled to try Advil Film-Coated Ibuprofen courtesy of Crowdtap. 

I was originally sent 8 samples but in the picture I've posted you'll only see 6. Why is that? Because not ten minutes after they arrived my sister had a horrible headache. So I saved the day with Advil.  And later that night I had some body pains so I took some Advil as well.  It worked great. I'm not a loyal Tylenol user like some people. Tylenol is good for some aches and pains, but Advil is better for inflammation and annoying female things like painful periods. So there is room for both on my shelf.

Doctor Who: The Blood Cell by James Goss Review

Welcome to The Prison. The Doctor finds himself as a prisoner in the most secure prison in space.  When the killing starts it is up to the Doctor to save the day...with a sonic spoon?  

This book was great. It has it all...humor (the Doctor constantly escaping from his cell), mystery (what is killing in the prison?), action, adventure, and a bit of eww. All the stuff you can typically expect from Doctor Who.  I read this book in one day. It was that good, although it is rather short at 252 pages.

If you are new to the Whoverse, I wouldn't recommend this book as an introduction to Doctor Who because you will be completely lost on who the Doctor and Clara are. If you are a fan of Doctor Who, read all you want. It is a wonderful book featuring the new 12th Doctor portrayed by Peter Capaldi. He is different than the other doctors but still good. So check out this book and the other Doctor Who novels today. You won't regret it.

#SkintimateHappyLegs Hosted Party

Once again Crowdtap has made me a happy tapper.  I was chosen to host a Skintimate Happy Legs Hosted Party.  Just because summer is over doesn't mean toes and legs have to hide.  

I received free from Crowdtap: Post shave lotion, salt scrub, toe dividers (or as I like to call them, the evil toe torturers), Skintimate Shave Gel (yay!), Schick Quatro disposable razors (awesome), and a bottle of Sinful Colors nailpolish.

I love Skintimate Shave Gel. I always get a smooth shave. Pair it with a Schick razor and you have one of the best shaves ever. Skintimate Shave Gel comes in Raspberry Rain, Strawberry Tangerine Twist, Luscious Kiwi Splash, and Tropical Splash. There is also skin therapy types as well.

And while this party isn't about Sinful Colors Nailpolish, I have to give a small shout out because this polish rocks! See the beautiful array of colors I had to offer attendees of the party.

Such great products were used that day!
