"KRR-KOO!"
"What was that?"
"A not ominous and totally normal noise?"
*something magical & outrageous happens*
"Of course." *Jen slaps her head in a Homer Simpson "Doh!" way.

I "should" be reading my spooky books for the readathons, but I really need a mood lifter, so I'm reading some Lumberjanes. So random and makes me smile.

Can we all just pretend the third Lumberjanes book never happened? Great. Thanks. 

I really thought about stopping my pursuit of Lumberjanes after the third book. Those creepy baby-janes just did not do it for me. The story was fine, but I hate, hate, hated the illustrations. While browsing the graphic novel section of the library the other day, I stumbled across the fourth volume, broke down, and checked it out. I am so glad I did.

I loved this book! It is everything I love about the Lumberjanes series (and no infantalized campers!)- glad to have you back, Brooke Allen, please never leave us again!

Awesome story and love the characters. I just cannot get enough of Ripley. She is just the cutest. Also, the whole progression with Jo and April? Love it! I really hope Barney stays in the series. And Jen! I love Jen in this book! Ahhhh, just so much awesomeness in one place! Such a well-rounded book. You even get to learn a little bit more about the Lumberjanes camp, which makes it all the more intriguing. I am back to loving this series and can't wait for the next book. 

Thank goodness Allen is back to illustrating this series. She really saved it for me.

Lumberjanes Vol. 3 - Shannon Watters

Overall, a good read.

I liked the storylines of this book better than the second one (but not as much as the first one). It seemed less random than book two. It is still plenty random, but just the right amount. It has all of the weirdness Lumberjane fans know and love. 

The thing that really held this book back was the artwork. All of a sudden the main characters look like children. I loved the artwork in the first book, but in this one, the characters almost look like completely different people. Not a fan.

The various artwork styles used for the campfire stories was a cool choice. I wasn't a fan of all of them (Ripley's was really hard to follow-then again, so is Ripley), but it was an interesting way to introduce the book. 

For the most part, I liked this book. But the infantilized artwork really bugged me. This may be the end of Lumberjanes for me.

I didn't enjoy this one quite as much as the first one, but it was still an entertaining graphic novel. I love all of the characters (Ripley is my favorite for obvious reasons) and was excited to see Jen become a bigger part of the team. 

Great artwork with hilarious moments (I lost it at the curtain over the keyhole) and suspenseful ones (JO!). A very good mix of emotions in this one. 

The thing I didn't like about this one was that it felt even more random than the first one. It kind of felt like it was just tying up a bunch of loose ends from the first book. It was still fun and interesting, but not as engaging. Sometimes things got thrown in without any buildup so they felt very random. There were a few times I had to pause reading to figure out what in the world was going on.

But the plot is still really interesting and I still enjoyed the book. 

Included in the book is also a short tutorial for making friendship bracelets because FRIENDSHIP TO THE MAX and all that awesomeness. 

As with the first, the Lumberjanes use influential females' names as exclamations ("Holy bell hooks!"). Awesome and empowering. 

There is also a preview of Giant Days, which looks promising. 

Great book. Can't wait to read the third one.
