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!
