Garmin Forerunner

This GPS device is great for calculating mileage and speed for runners/bikers.  It is not too bulky to be worn easily on the wrist and is generally as comfortable to wear as a wristwatch.  It’s a great running partner particularly on days when I run alone.  The only con, is that at times it can take awhile to obtain a signal, but once connected it never loses signal.  Although it is one of the cheaper GPS enabled wrist watches on the market, I have been very happy with the purchase.

Eden, by Keary Taylor

     Keary creates a great vivid dystopian world in this full length novel.  The underlying premise was both intriguing and seemingly plausible. The characters were three-dimensional. The book was filled with romance that unfortunately felt like an afterthought. I felt distracted by the love triangle at times, but yet I was still fully engaged by the plot. Overall, the book is a fun read and I would recommend it to others.

Destiny Binds, by Tammy Blackwell

Humor and paranormal romance are a great combination in this young adult novel by Tammy Blackwell.  I found myself laughing from the very first line and throughout the book.  Although paranormal romance is not my favorite genre and has been at times overdone, this book was very enjoyable and engaging.  Scout is a well developed character that you could easily picture walking down the halls of any high school.  I would recommend this book to anyone without reservation.  Well edited, good length, and without explicit sexual content.

5/5 Stars
