Confuzzled Books

If you are wondering what kinds of books I review and events I host, this little section is the place to look. Books I love to read: Children's, Young Adult, Paranormal and Fantasy books. Books I like to read: General Fiction, Romances, Religious Fiction, Mysteries and Biographies. So those are the genres of books I will generally review. If you send me a book outside of those areas, I'll consider it, but it may not fit my tastes. Reviews will take about 2 months to post; I try to post them around the time the book is released. On giveaways: Sending me a signed book to give away on the site is a great way to get your book noticed. I do a "mystery book" giveaway about every 2 weeks, where I read the book and twitter about it without revealing its title, then reveal what I've been reading and give it away. The whole event takes a couple weeks, and I feature the giveaway book on my blog for most of that time.

Twisted Toyfare Theatre: 10th Anniversary Collection

Twisted Toyfare Theatre: 10th Anniversary Collection - From the Writers of 'Robot Chicken' If you haven't checked out the magazine ToyFare before then maybe you have heard of Robot Chicken or seen that. Twisted ToyFare Theatre was where the idea of Robot Chicken came to into being. Not until recently Twisted ToyFare was only done in still shot photos. If you are a comic book fan you are sure to like the jokes and twisted humor. Even if you are not a comic book fan and grew up with 80's cartoons you will also love Twisted ToyFare.

In this 10th Anniversary edition there are 25 or more comic book styled storyboard panels that are sure to poke at your funny bone. My top three favorites were:
3. My Big Fat Fat Wedding where Dr. Ock marries Spiderman's Aunt May. Kinda gross in some parts but sometimes gross is funny.
2. 28 Smurfs Later where Smurfs turn into zombies what's not to like.
1. The Hunt For Red Ork-Tober where Spider-Man and Hawkeye decide to go hunt for He-man sorcerer friend Orko. Orko also kills a Care Bear. Trust me it was evil.

I have to say though I didn't enjoy this as much I use to. True I am behind on most of the Twisted Toyfare. All the ones in this book were new to me. I think I didn't enjoy it because I went to a panel with some of the writers of Twisted ToyFare and they told some of favorite lines that were in the issue. So it didn't make me laugh out loud like it usually does. Maybe I just wasn't in the right mood for it. I have give it 3 stars meaning I liked it but wouldn't recommend to someone unless they asked me if I had read it.
