Cards Against Humanity

best party game cardsagainsthumanityCheck out this funny review from Mykie G

“This is not a review about playing Cards Against Humanity, it’s a review of the fallout endured from playing Cards Against Humanity. Take it as a warning, if you will.

If you aren’t a horrible person already, you will soon be. You will play Cards Against Humanity, and as others have said, you will be shocked, appalled, and worst of all, you will learn and adapt. You’ll reach for your smartphone and search for terms you’ve drawn such as “The Übermensch”, “Heteronormativity”, and “The Three-Fifths Compromise”. You will commit these and many other newly-learned words to memory.

And that’s where it all comes crashing down”.

Fire, 7″ Display, Wi-Fi, 8 GB – Includes Special Offers, Black

This tablet is proving massively popular as agift, latest gift review is from a husband to his wife he says this:

Review by Geoff Hulse

“I pre-ordered this for my wife mostly to use as a Kindle E-reader as I figured the tablet would be slow and the display would be less than impressive. I was wrong. What a bargain this little beauty is!

PROS: Perfect size for Ebooks, and web surfing to alleviate strain on the eyes from my 5″ phone display, nice sturdy casing that gives it a nice heft but still weighs in as one of the lighter tablets on the market. Child Accounts- Amazon allows you to set up this tablet with age restricted access for kids making this a low cost piece of tech that is perfect for school kids and allows mom and dad to ration the amount of time lil Johnny can play Clash of Clans and how much he can hit the ol’ Visa card for. Battery life thus far; wife was on it for about 5 hours last night and battery was at about 46% . Kindle Integration -this goes without saying but having my ebooks and audible books synced to the tablet is awesome and my Kindle books look great.”

The Trials of Apollo Book One The Hidden Oracle

Review by College Stealth

“I’m happy about the release of this book, back to Camp Half Blood, and I admit the trip into Norse mythology was fun for a bit, but I’ve grown quite fond of our past protagonists and it was nice to have them back. One thing I would recommend, this book could be read on its own, without reading the others that have come before it, but I wouldn’t. There are some brief summaries of Camp Half-Blood and Camp Jupiter, but it talks about the outcome of those events. Also, the book takes place at the start of Riordian’s last book Magnus Chase, and you know that based on what Annabeth is doing, she’s in Boston.

The book has Percy for a bit in it, but then it is primarily focused on Apollo and a new demi-god Meg. Like many of Riordian’s past books, the origins of Meg are a bit of a mystery. Uh, I really have to say, there are some hysterical reference in the book that are not entirely based on the knowledge of children in the normal YA range. Shout-out to a Rocky Horror mention! Anyway, the book is enjoyable to read as all the others and is quick”.
