Well, no use in waiting. I read Invader Zim: Volume 2 immediately after finishing Volume 1. And Volume 2 seemed even crazier than Volume 1!
This time around, we had Zim applying for a loan in a human mech suit. Gir is piloting the legs; when he sees popcorn, he sends the legs in an opposite direction, tearing the mech suit in half. Hilarity ensues as Zim tries to track down Gir (and the legs). Next, Zim and Gir crash land on barren planet. They trigger something which causes millions of years of evolution to happen in mere moments. And end up battling giant bugs to get their Voot Cruiser back. Then we had the pants aliens conquering the planet at Zim's invitation, turning humans into pants zombies. Next Dib became Zim's intern to try to get better footage of Zim's base. And finally, Zim went on a hunting trip to bring something truly terrifying back to Earth to impress his classmates.
Volume 2 is in some ways more wackier than Volume 1 was; I think it was by Chapter 2 that I felt "here it is, here's the show I loved." I'm all Zim-ed out for tonight, which is fine because Volume 3 isn't out yet. But I can't wait for when it is out - I think it'll be awesome!
*As of September 24/15, I am not taking any more requests from authors to read their books. I currently have too many books to read. I'll update this if/when that changes.*
I currently have 164 fiction books just sitting in my room to read (although that doesn't stop me from randomly picking books up at work or buying them on Kindle!). I've been keeping track of them on a paper list for years. This blog shares what I read as I attempt to get "the List" down to a more manageable number.
If you'd like to know what books are on the List, check out my Goodreads shelf devoted to them - it's my physical list digitized! I've also got a shelf for every book I've reviewed here on this blog.
Not everything I review here is actually on the List. Some books come from the library, some books are nonfiction (which are not included on the List), some books are on my Kindle (which have never been included on the List), and some books are given to me by friends and family.
Note: as of April 12/14, I am not going to add the *spoiler* warning I used to when I'm giving away details of books. I want to talk about the books I've read in whatever detail I'd like. So if you haven't read a book I'm reviewing, you might not want to read the review.
