You know, Hobbes, some days even my lucky rocket ship underpants don't help.
Happy 59th birthday, Bill Watterson! The creator of the beloved comic strip Calvin and Hobbes, featuring a boy and his tiger, was in fourth grade when he wrote a fan letter to Charles Schulz. He still has the Peanuts creator's response.

The Isle of Blood: The third book in The Monstrumologist series. This is my favorite books so far, it's getting darker and more interesting as the series continues. 4 1/2 stars
Homicidal Psycho Jungle Cat: Once again, it's Calvin and Hobbes, not much to say about it. 4 1/2 stars.

"Shouldn't You Be in School": This is the third book in the All the Wrong Questions series. 4 stars
Paper Moon: The back of the copy I have compares this with To Kill a Mockingbird, they're not in the same league at all. I found the characters extremely annoying and the book wondered all over until the last couple of chapters. The ending itself was unsatisfying and I really wouldn't recommend this. 2 1/2 stars
There's Treasure Everywhere and The Indispensable Calvin and Hobbes: I don't have much to say about these two, it's Calvin and Hobbes. 4 stars
Fer-De-Lance: Nero Wolfe ranks up there with Sherlock Holmes and Flavia for me. The books are dated and I found myself cringing at some of the comments made throughout, but I still love them. 4 stars.
Total Read for the Month: 12
I'm doing good so far this year and I'm on schedule, a little ahead in fact to complete 100 books this year.
