Bigfootloose and Finn Fancy Free (Familia Arcana, #2)
Bigfootloose and Finn Fancy Free - Randy Henderson

I've got reviewers block.  I just finished this book, and had a lot of fun with it, but can't come up with a thing to say about it.  I loved that Sasquatch were major characters and I liked the vernacular the author gave them; somehow, it worked really well and I wasn't stuck with Harry and the Henderson's in my head while I read this.  I like Dawn, Finn's romantic interest, but the whole romance thing got on my nerves.  There's supportive and then there's after-school-special.  I liked that this book wasn't dependent on what it obviously going to be a series-arc-evil-nemesis; this was a self-contained plot (although the book does give massive spoilers for book 1).  

 

Mostly, it's well-written and entertaining.

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl Vol. 3
The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl Vol. 3: Squirrel, You Really Got Me Now - Erica Henderson,Ryan North

DNF: Page 49

 

I checked out this book while I was doing my Comixology free trial and the work did not click with me.

 

The artwork was a bit offputting for me. It wasn't terrible, but I didn't like the art style because of how the facial expression was drawn. Most of the characters share the same goofy looking faces in the panels I read. I don't mind silly facial expressions for a few scenes, but frequently seeing them becomes old.

 

The main thing that I couldn't stand in this book was the writing. I'm willing to deal with art styles I don't like if the story or writing is intriguing and entertaining (Higurashi and Umineko visual novels for example). Unfortunately, the comic's writing was the weakest point. It tries too hard to be funny and quirky. The worst part would have to be when the writer points out stuff to the reader like this example: "From Wikipedia. You can tell because this looks a lot like a Wikipedia entry." Lines like that example happen a lot in this comic from the panels to the margins at the bottom of the pages. I don't find those funny, and it breaks me away from the plot. 

 

This comic was not for me.

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl Vol. 4: I Kissed a Squirrel and I Liked It - Erica Henderson,Ryan North

Squirrel Girl comics are always enjoyable and this was no exception.

 

I liked how clever this volume was. The choose your own adventure comic was so much fun. Plus, Doreen’s foray into online dating was so relatable. I loved how the last comic gave us a (totally not boring) computer science lesson.

 

Overall, this was another great volume.

Take it easy
Big Sky, Loyal Heart: a Henderson Ranch Big Sky romance (Henderson's Ranch #5) - M.L. Buchman

This is book # 5, in the Henderson's Ranch series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  While entertaining, the whole make up of the story and characters will make more sense if read in order with the Nightstalkers series as well.

 

Patrick is learning he loves to be a cowboy.  He had planned to make films, but the best laid plans tend to go awry.  He loves his current job and location.  Now he is falling for someone who may not need him and may not stay.

 

Lauren is having to adjust being former military.  After disaster struck, she is brought to the ranch to meet some familiar characters.  (Mark & Emily)  We learn that while she is trying to adjust to civilian life just days after discharge.... there may be more options than she is aware of.  Falling for a cowboy was not in the plans but - plans change.

 

This was such a great read!  I loved having my favorite and familiar characters here.  It felt like home.  I was so pleased to see how some of them were doing after the Night Stalkers series.  This series is great on its own, and has some stellar characters to love also.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
