Cattywampus by Ash Van Otterloo – 3 stars
I found some of it off and the religion aspect kinda weird. Also not sure if i’m supposed to be offended at part of it, but I digress. Listening to it instead of reading it with my eyeballs might be to blame.
I had some laughs and some feels. I was both annoyed with and felt for the characters at different times. I’d say over-all I liked it, it just wasn’t exactly my cup of tea and that’s ok. I loved the diversity. Katy, one of the MC’s, is intersex and has a deaf brother and another character has 2 mom’s.
Trans Wizard Harriet Porber and the Bad Boy Parasaurolophus: An Adult Romance Novel by Chuck Tingle – 4 stars
Despite all the typos and the fact I think this coulda been even better if it had been a bit more polished I still really enjoyed this. It’s hilarious, I enjoyed the characters and the story and especially the calling out of she who shall not be named and the whole romance parody thing. There’s also the complete smashing of the 4th wall.
Now, which of Chuck’s 5,000 other books do I read next?
Things Have Gotten Worse Since We Last Spoke by Eric LaRocca – 2.75 stars
My initial thoughts right after finishing it were …
What in the bloody fuck was that?
I don’t mean that as an insult in any way. It’s just bizarre and I have no idea how to rate it.
I didn’t dislike it at all. I just … wtf man.
Then after looking at my spreadsheet that had different aspects of the book I came up with 2.75 and that feels right somehow. It’s just my opinion and i’m not sure how to express it. I think it needed … more. The characters, the atmosphere, the plot. I just needed, more. But again, that’s just me.

Archaeology – March/April 2022 by Archaeological Institute Of America – 4 stars
Philosophy Now – issue 149 by Anja Publications – 4 stars
BBC Wildlife Magazine – Spring 2022 by Immediate Media Company London Ltd – 5 stars
Cirque Berserk by Jessica Guess – 5 stars
This was so much fun. I loved getting to know the characters and feel for them. This book made me cry. It also made me question things because things aren’t black and white. It even has a trope I hate and I still loved this book and am giving it 5 stars! That says something.
It’s an interesting slasher, that’s for sure!
The Cannibals of Candyland by Carlton Mellick III – 4 stars
I’ve really gotta read more bizarro. This is my second book by Carlton Mellick III. My first was The Haunted Vagina. I really enjoyed both of these books. Not only is it weird, it can also be thought-provoking. My only complaint, for both of them, is the ending feels rushed. But I still look forward to reading more by this author!
