A Bookaholic, Pro-life, Pro-Family, Pro-Oxford Comma, Catholic (with Asperger's) who reads and writes as her obsession. I've been reading over 400 books a year lately. These are my ramblings on some of the books I read. To read about all the books I read and comment on, visit me at LibraryThing or Goodreads.

I've been blogging since 2007 and at this point (July 2015) am trying my hand at turning the theme of this blog towards mystery, thriller, and crime, fiction and nonfiction. I have some special interest topics and categories within this broad genre which include (but are not limited to) serial killers, scandi-crime, Victorian history and historicals, history of the criminally insane and asylums, psychopathology, death, funerary practices and burial, corpses, true crime and anything dealing with the real life macabre, or that portrayed in fiction.

I also read a short story a day from various collections, sometimes anthologies othertimes collections of a single author's work. These reviews are also posted here and while they are of mixed genre the mystery, thriller, horror, gothic and macabre often appear within their pages as well.

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

Captain Underpants and the Tyrannical Retaliation of the Turbo Toilet 2000 by Dav Pilkey

Captain Underpants and the Tyrannical Retaliation of the Turbo Toilet 2000 by Dav Pilkey

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Captain Underpants (#11)

It's been a year long wait to find out what would happen to our friends George and Harold and Book #11 doesn't disappoint. There is a slight mixing up of the usual format which I missed but it is all there just slightly out of order. Thankfully, a comic book starts off with a brief four pages that summarizes books 1-9, then the first chapter spends a couple of pages reminding us where we are after book ten. Book 11 is just as fantastically hyperspeed as the last one, time-travel back and forth, speeding here, speeding there and then the ultimate problem arises when the time traveling results in double sets of our heroes. Yesterday George and Yesterday Harold are living in the same time as the present ones and by book's end all four Harold and George's are in big trouble with the only consolation the announcement of book 12. The book is just as funny and silly as usual and fans will be delighted. Even if you've grown out of the series, you may just want to give this a read to keep up to date with these old friends. Tra-la-la!
