Quicky Reviews #4

I have a few more books and audiobooks that I want to review that aren't going to count toward any challenges. They are really short. I thought a sentence or two might do and so Quicky Reviews was born.

There are just some books you can sum up in a sentence or two!
Author: Jennifer Tracy 
E-book: 687 pages(on my iPhone)
Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform (April 23, 2012)
Source: iBooks
Book Description: Jennifer Tracy, best-selling author proves you can become a "New You" in her
new book, Fast and Healthy Weight Loss: What and How to Eat to Lose Weight.
She explains why;
"Being overweight isn't actually your fault; staying overweight is. You were
using bad information or a bad program."
Jennifer Tracy shares her revolutionary program, showing readers the best ways
to drop pounds and inches fast,
* It DOESN'T MATTER what age you are at,
* It DOESN'T MATTER how many times you've failed to lose weight,
* It DOESN'T MATTER if you have stubborn fat deposits around your belly
that won't go away,
* It DOESN'T MATTER if you have an extremely slow metabolism,
* It DOESN'T MATTER if you have the worse genetics in the world...

Without exhausting workouts or boring cardio, and keep them off permanently.
Her revolutionary method assists a complete nutritional makeover and super easy
exercises to:
* Boost your metabolism,
* Skyrocket fat burning,
* Turn heads everywhere you go...

My thoughts:  This book is the same as all the other diet books.  But this one is quick and to the point.  It was more of a reminder of things I should be doing than giving me new information.  I like the quick points at each chapter.  Quick and Easy.  You won't lose 10lbs. in 10 days but you will lose weight in time once you follow this book.  
Title: Mistletoe & Margaritas by Shannon Stacey
Author:  Shannon Stacey
Audiobook:  2 hours and 5 minutes
Publisher: ?
Source: (free)
Book Description:  Claire Rutledge still believes in love, despite losing her husband. So, after two years, she's not surprised by the steamy dreams telling her it might be time to start moving on....

My thoughts:  Cute Christmas story.  It's short simple and sweetie which in turn equals predictable.  The narrator also has a cute voice.  But the time I was trying to get use to her was over.

Title: Tales from the Arabian Nights
Author: Andrew Lang 
Narrator: Toby Stephens
Audiobook: 2 hours and 14 minutes
Publisher:  Naxos AudioBooks
Book Description: 
To save herself from certain death, the beautiful Scheherazade must beguile a Persian sultan with her enchanting stories. In two of her most well-known tales, Aladdin and Ali Baba’s cleverness and quick-thinking save the day—and a great treasure. Andrew Lang’s masterful version of these ancient Middle Eastern folk tales will captivate listeners of all ages, just as they did when Scheherazade was the storyteller.

My thoughts:  I loved this story and to be honest I never read it completely, just a few stories here and there until now.  This is what a great story is all about.  Perfect for before bedtime.

Have you read or listen to any of these books?  What did you think of them?
