Goosebumps: Deep Trouble by R.L. Stine

Yesterday was my day off, but instead of reading I spent my day writing.  I don’t know if the mid-grade book I have been playing around with is any good, but I am certainly having fun writing it.  It may be doomed to the drawer forever, but it is good practice.

Today, I don’t have to go to work until later in the afternoon.  So, I decided to sit down and read one of the library books that I have checked out.  I have a big pile of them sitting next to me, and I need to work my way through them so I can return them on time.  I am notorious for not getting my library books returned on time.  Thankfully, I can renew online now.

So, today I decided to read R. L. Stine’s Goosebumps: Deep Trouble.  Billy and Sheena are visiting their uncle during their summer break.  Their uncle mostly lives on a boat.  He does marine research and is a professor.  He has an assistant named Alexander who is also living on the boat and helping their uncle – Dr. Deep.

They are out exploring an area near a coral reef and lagoon.  Billy has an active imagination, and this sometimes makes him an unreliable narrator.  He finds a sea monster, gets hurt on fire coral, and then finds a mermaid.  An adventure ensues.

This book is typical R.L. Stine.  Suspenseful and fun to read.  I remember reading books from the Goosebumps series when I was younger.  I enjoyed them then as well.

I think I will try to write for a bit before lunch and getting ready for work today.  I might try to read a few pages in another book before then.  We shall see.  Until next time, Happy Reading!
