Film Review - Alvin and the Chipmunks Meet The Wolfman (2000)
Film Review – Alvin and the Chipmunks Meet The Wolfman (2000)
Synopsis Alvin’s just wild about monsters! After devouring every movie and book on the subject, he considers himself an expert. So when a mysterious new neighbour, Mr Talbot, moves nearby and strange howling noises come from his yard, Alvin is sure he is a werewolf!
Of course, everyone else thinks Alvin is watching too much late-night TV but when Theodore is nipped by a “dog” and suddenly starts…

So I need to talk about the Detective League as a team more because I'm obsessed with them:
- Bella trying to set all of these people up with other people and it's usually the villains they fight. Like, they get done with fighting Archer and she's all: "So Maikel, he's kinda-" / "No, Bella."/"Alright."
- Chase is the human ladder of the team, if something is too high, everyone will literally call Chase to grab it and honestly she doesn't mind it, she's happy being helpful!
- You can and will find Maikel in the weirdest places. Like Kathy is talking to Vance when suddenly, they see Maikel perched on the base like a gargoyle and they just stare at him before being all: "Must be a tuesday." And then continue walking.
- Everyone having to pretend that they totally don't know Tekashi and Kumiko are a thing but let's be honest, the only one on that team who DOESN'T know they're dating is probably Castillo whose constantly flirting with Kumiko in front of Tekashi.
- Chix being a cowgirl and everyone making fun of her slang and stealing her hat because she's the shortest member on the team and she is so close to snapping and kicking everyone's ass.
- Honestly do not insult this team, they're all detectives so they've just got look at you for like 4 seconds before listing every single thing you're insecure about.
- Kathy having to be carried because she insists on walking around in high heels but they don't really complain because, hey, they're cute on her.

Today is National Booklovers Day.
If you’re tired of baking and tired of puzzles and just tired, here are some crime series and nonfiction books to try (Tried to just put links instead of the whole text but it wouldn’t work):
CRIME SERIES
Tana French series
Each book is centered around a periphery character from the book that came before. Better written than many crime series.
Armand Gamache series, Louise Penny
Set in Quebec in Three Pines, a charming, perhaps enchanted, village. The characters are strong and interesting. The writing is lyrical and all is overlaid by a slight sense of dread.
Dave Robicheaux series, James Lee Burke
I think Burke is quite possibly the best living author. His books are unrelentingly depressing. The location is usually Louisiana and Burke clearly feels great affection and empathy for the poor and disaffected of the area. Robicheaux is a recovering alcoholic with a very strong Catholic faith. His sidekick is a large, pitiful gay man. When Hurricane Katrina hit, Burke was enraged by our government’s response. The book he wrote soon after that would practically burn your hands as you read it. There is not one ounce of humor in his books. Once, he wrote something just very slightly funny and I had to read the sentence several times to see if it really was just slightly humorous. (Burke taught at Wichita State when the BTK killings were occurring there. His daughter Alafair Burke is also a writer but she is not even close to her dad’s ability.)
Inspector Lynley series, Elizabeth George
Set in Great Britain. Her books are always several hundred pages. Typically wonderful as all great British murder/crime series are although she’s actually American.
Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James series, Deborah Crombie
Another good detective series set in England.
Kate Burkholder series, Linda Castillo
An Amish woman leaves her faith and community and returns later as the Chief of Police in the Amish community. The mystery always has an Amish connection. Very interesting learning more about the Amish community.
Gabriel Allon series, Daniel Silva
Allon is an Israeli assassin/spy who travels the world avenging and protecting Israel when he would rather be the master art restorer that his heart wants him to be.
Spenser series, Robert B. Parker
Not as serious as the others in this category. His early books were better than the later ones when he seemed to run out of ideas. His three characters, Spenser, Susan, and Hawk are some of my favorites.
The Spellman series, Lisa Lutz
Lutz is actually a comedy writer and her books are just fun. The Spellman family is nuts and chaotic. The books feature lots of footnotes which give valuable information, often about the main female character’s boyfriends. Escapism/crime/murder at its best.
Jack Reacher series, Lee Child
Reacher is an ex-Marine who travels the country with no possessions other than a toothbrush. When his clothes get dirty, he throws them away and buys new at the thrift store. He sets an internal clock in his head to wake himself up at the right time.
Harlan Coben
Not a series but good mysteries.
Kay Scarpetta series, Patricia Cornwall
Cornwall was, I think, the first to build a series around a coroner/CSI type character. I liked her first books very much but, over time, her novels have become heavy and boring. (Cornwall is a very interesting person. She claimed to have solver the Jack the Ripper murders using forensic science but most weren’t convinced.)
Temperance Brennan series, Kathy Reichs
Similar to Kay Scarpetta character. Brennan is a CSI-type character who lives/works in both Canada and North Carolina.
Alex Delaware, Jonathan Kellerman
Delaware is a child psychologist who helps his best friend and detective Milo. Set in LA. His books have gotten progressively worse so start at the beginning.
Lucas Davenport series, John Sandford
Lucas is tough and mean and spends a fortune on his clothes. Set in Minneapolis.
Virgil Flowers series, John Sandford
Virgil is a detective who loves to fish, wears cowboy boots and shirts with imprints of his favorite bands, has lots of girlfriends, writes for outdoor magazines, and is also very philosophical and religious. Known as Virgil “Fucking” Flowers by fellow detectives.
Harry Bosch series, Michael Connelly
Hard-boiled detective. Set in LA.
Series Set in Other Times:
Anne Perry is the grande dame of crime novels set in other times England. It is said that her Pitt series is the longest-running series in the crime/murder genre.
William Monk series, Anne Perry
Set in England around 1850s – 1860s maybe featuring William Monk and strong female characters
Thomas and Charlotte Pitt series, Anne Perry
Set in Victorian England featuring Thomas Pitt and his well-born wife, Charlotte
Maisie Dobbs series, Jacqueline Winspear
Maisie begins her working life as a maid. She serves as a nurse in WWI and later taught by kind of a new-agey mentor who taught her to observe everything about a person. She calls herself a “psychologist and investigator” and is a very modern character for her times.
Mary Russell series, Laurie R. King
Mary is discovered as a young girl by Sherlock Holmes who has retired and keeps bees. She grows to be his assistant and later his wife.
Series I used to like:
I used to like the Alex Cross by James Patterson but he’s become a hack who seems to churn out a book a week. I never really liked the Kinsey Millhone series (A is for etc)) and also never really liked the Stephanie Plum books (every title has a number in it). If you’re going to read, you could do better than these books.
NONFICTION:

A look at the diary as a diary. And as a book. And as a play. (Reads like a term paper.)

Interesting fact: When Julius Caesar and Cleopatra floated down the Nile, they had no idea the Sphinx existed because it was covered by sand. Also Cleopatra is closer in time to us than she is to the pyramids.
Memoir of Cleopatra
Margaret George
Fiction but based on fact
HOME
Building a Home with My Husband: A Journey Through the Renovation of Love
Rachel Simon
All the Way Home: Building a Family in a Falling-Down House

The story of a man who bought a house he shouldn’t have. To say it was falling down doesn’t begin to describe the disrepair. Love and hidden treasure and miscarriages and growing up.
(Favorite)
At Home: A Short History of Private Life
Bill Bryson
Life as lived in each room of the home. Sex in the bedroom. Cooking in the kitchen. Hoopskirts. Cholera. Bathing. Lawnmowers. Telephones. In the end, everything happens at home.

Jim Dwyer

War Journal: My Five Years in Iraq
Richard Engel
If our leaders had read this book, we would not have been in Iraq. Period.

Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers

HISTORY
American Buffalo
Steven Rinella
The story of---the American buffalo
American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America
Colin Woodard
Rather than ONE nation, we are 11. This goes a long way to explaining the present dysfunction and makes you fairly certain that we can’t overcome where we come from. (Particularly interesting were the sections explaining the vast differences between the Virginia-type slaveholders and those of the Deep South.)
(Favorite)
Appetite for America: Fred Harvey and the Business of Civilizing the Wild West—One Meal at a Time
Stephen Fried
The Harvey girls who served meals at train depots across America. It changed women and their roles forever. Fred Harvey was like a real-life Forest Gump. If it happened in America, he seemed to be there.

Assassination Vacation
Sarah Vowell
Who but Sarah Vowell would spend vacations visiting the sites where presidents were assassinated
Lincoln’s Body: A Cultural History

The race horse named the Biscuit is one of my favorite characters in any book

David Laskin
In 1888, a blizzard dropped down and killed hundreds, including many children walking their way home from school
Eighty Days: Nellie Bly and Elizabeth Bisland’s History-Making Race Around the World
Matthew Goodman
Fiction based on fact. I had, of course, heard of Nellie Bly but not Elizabeth Bisland who deserves to be known

Rinker Buck
Retracing the Oregon Trail using the path and equipment of the time

Carole Radziwill
What if your best friends were John Kennedy Jr. and Carolyn Kennedy? What if your husband were John Kennedy’s cousin? What if all three died within three weeks? What if you were What Remains.

Kathy does very much still love and care for her friends and it honestly shows because of how often she let's them get away because she knows from experience how bad Belle Reve Reformatory Highschool can be and yeah, sometimes her teammates like Tekashi, Vance and Castillo, and Chix (the heroes who don't know what villains go through) get mad at her and yell at her for it and accuse her of being a traitor and she just glares back: "I won't apologize for doing what I thought was right."
Castillo: "THEY KILL PEOPLE, KATHY! THEY'RE VILLAINS! WE CAN'T LET THEM RUN LOOSE!"
Kathy: "Do you know how many innocent people are killed by the justice system? By the police alone? Get off your high-horse, not everything is black and white."
Tekashi: "How can you even sleep at night?"
Kathy: "Happily because I know my friends aren't hurting more than the world has let them. You think Waller is bad now? You haven't even seen her real bad side."

Several people have asked for a list of crime/murder series that I’ve stayed with over the years. Here are a few:
(Note: I never ever ever start a series in the middle. I always go back to the beginning and I think you should too!)
Armand Gamache series, Louise Penny
Set in Quebec in Three Pines, a charming, perhaps enchanted, village. The characters are strong and interesting. The writing is lyrical and all is overlaid by a slight sense of dread.
Dave Robicheaux series, James Lee Burke
I think Burke is quite possibly the best living author. His books are unrelentingly depressing. The location is usually Louisiana and Burke clearly feels great affection and empathy for the poor and disaffected of the area. Robicheaux is a recovering alcoholic with a very strong Catholic faith. His sidekick is a large, pitiful gay man. When Hurricane Katrina hit, Burke was enraged by our government’s response. The book he wrote soon after that would practically burn your hands as you read it. There is not one ounce of humor in his books. Once, he wrote something just very slightly funny and I had to read the sentence several times to see if it really was just slightly humorous. (Burke taught at Wichita State when the BTK killings were occurring there. His daughter Alafair Burke is also a writer but she is not even close to her dad’s ability.)
Inspector Lynley series, Elizabeth George
Set in Great Britain. Her books are always several hundred pages. Typically wonderful as all great British murder/crime series are although she’s actually American.
Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James series, Deborah Crombie
Another good detective series set in England.
Kate Burkholder series, Linda Castillo
An Amish woman leaves her faith and community and returns later as the Chief of Police in the Amish community. The mystery always has an Amish connection. Very interesting learning more about the Amish community.
Gabriel Allon series, Daniel Silva
Allon is an Israeli assassin/spy who travels the world avenging and protecting Israel when he would rather be the master art restorer that his heart wants him to be.
Spenser series, Robert B. Parker
Not as serious as the others in this category. His early books were better than the later ones when he seemed to run out of ideas. His three characters, Spenser, Susan, and Hawk are some of my favorites.
The Spellman series, Lisa Lutz
Lutz is actually a comedy writer and her books are just fun. The Spellman family is nuts and chaotic. The books feature lots of footnotes which give valuable information, often about the main female character’s boyfriends. Escapism/crime/murder at its best.
Jack Reacher series, Lee Child
Reacher is an ex-Marine who travels the country with no possessions other than a toothbrush. When his clothes get dirty, he throws them away and buys new at the thrift store. He sets an internal clock in his head to wake himself up at the right time.
Harlan Coben
Not a series but good mysteries.
Kay Scarpetta series, Patricia Cornwall
Cornwall was, I think, the first to build a series around a coroner/CSI type character. I liked her first books very much but, over time, her novels have become heavy and boring. (Cornwall is a very interesting person. She claimed to have solved the Jack the Ripper murders using forensic science but most weren’t convinced.)
Temperance Brennan series, Kathy Reichs
Similar to Kay Scarpetta character. Brennan is a CSI-type character who lives/works in both Canada and North Carolina.
Tana French novels
Set in Ireland where they say "fair play to you" quite often. Each book deals with a minor character from the book before so related but not the same character.
Gillian Flynn
Not a series but very dark female characters
Gretchen Lowell series, Chelsea Cain
Very dark female serial killer
Peter Gant (Rivers of London), Ben Aaronovitch
Crime/Fantasy series set in London. Imagine if Harry Potter grew up to be a crime detective
Ceony Twill series, Charlie N. Holmberg
Another Crime/Fantasy series. Maybe imagine if Hermione Granger grew up to be a crime detective
Myfanwy Thomas series, Daniel O’Malley
Another Crime/Fantasy series consisting of two books (so far)
Alex Delaware, Jonathan Kellerman
Delaware is a child psychologist who helps his best friend and detective Milo. Set in LA.
Lucas Davenport series, John Sandford
Lucas is tough and mean and spends a fortune on his clothes. Set in Minneapolis.
Virgil Flowers series, John Sandford
Virgil is a detective who loves to fish, wears cowboy boots and shirts with imprints of his favorite bands, has lots of girlfriends, writes for outdoor magazines, and is also very philosophical and religious. Known as Virgil “Fucking” Flowers by fellow detectives.
Harry Bosch series, Michael Connelly
Hard-boiled detective. Set in LA.
Series Set in Other Times:
Anne Perry is the grande dame of crime novels set in other times in England. It is said that her Pitt series is the longest-running series in the crime/murder genre.
William Monk series, Anne Perry
Set in England around maybe the 1850s – 1860s featuring William Monk and strong female characters
Thomas and Charlotte Pitt series, Anne Perry
Set in Victorian England featuring Thomas Pitt and his well-born wife, Charlotte
Maisie Dobbs series, Jacqueline Winspear
Maisie begins her working life as a maid. She serves as a nurse in WWI and is later taught by kind of a new-agey mentor who tells her to observe everything about a person. She calls herself a “psychologist and investigator” and is a very modern character for her times.
Mary Russell series, Laurie R. King
Mary is discovered as a young girl by Sherlock Holmes who has retired and keeps bees. She grows to be his assistant and later his wife.
Charlotte Holmes (Lady Sherlock) series, Sherry Thomas
Sherlock Holmes reimagined as a woman (a new series)
Series I used to like:
I used to like the Alex Cross by James Patterson but he’s become a hack who seems to churn out a book a week. I never really liked the Kinsey Millhone series (A is for etc)) and also never really liked the Stephanie Plum books (every title has a number in it). If you’re going to read, you could do better than these books.
