Welcome

A Bookaholic, Pro-life, Pro-Family, Catholic, with Asperger's, who reads and writes as her obsession. These are the ramblings of the books I read.

I sometimes go through stages of "genre love", I'm addicted to mystery thrillers, Catholic theology, memoirs, 20th century Chinese historical fiction & Victorian fiction and non-fiction, but you'll find I read an even wider variety of books than that, both fiction and non-fiction. I have a teensy fascination with macabre non-fiction books about death and anything about insane asylums.

I also tend to post a lot of reviews of juvenile/teen books, with a nod towards what parents can expect to find that might or might not be objectionable.

I also blog about graphic novels and manga on a separate BLOG.

First sentence:

Jimmy Neutron and his friends Carl and Sheen played in Jimmy's backyard under the hot summer sun.

Acquired: Bought used at a thrift store or book/garage sale.

Reason for Reading: son read aloud to me as his reader.

Both ds and I love the Jimmy Neutron cartoons so there is always going to be a fair amount of enjoyment from a storybook about Jimmy and his science inventions. This time it so hot out that even Sheen's Ultra Lord action figures are melting. Jimmy has a great idea using Carl's sunblock. He'll just magnify it's power and using a laser beam coat the sun with sunblock to cool things down a bit. And it works! Only it works too well and Jimmy may have just started the next ice age! Can Jimmy reverse the effects before the angry mob of townspeople get him?

Fun story, with a great, though over the top, of course, scientific solution to the problem. For a Level 2 reader the book was incredibly hard to read though, "Ready-to-Read" books are certainly not equivalent to other early reader series' levels.
