Reading progress update: I've read 81 out of 187 pages.
The Lion in the Living Room: How House Cats Tamed Us and Took Over the World - Abigail Tucker

Even with their categorization as an invasive species, cat eradication makes me sad.

If your day needs something nice and cat-related

This links to a particular Robot Hugs comic. I'm not familiar with the comic as a whole (according to the About page, some are NSFW), but this particular one make me smile. It's about someone discovering what cat purring is like for the very first time.

Release Day Review: Revelation (de La Vega Cats # 2) Lauren Dane

 

 

Previously published; newly refreshed by author

 

Fall in love with the de La Vega cat shifters in this classic paranormal romance from New York Times bestselling author Lauren Dane, a spinoff of the fan-favorite Cascadia Wolves series

 

The very magick that brought them together now makes them targets…

 

Kendra Kellog may have found her sister, but she’s still miles away from bringing down the evil mages targeting her family. Max de La Vega is exactly what she doesn’t need at this moment in time—strong, smart and the very definition of alpha.

 

The next in line to run his jaguar jamboree, Max is used to getting what he wants. Right now, he wants Kendra. More than that, he realizes she needs him—and he’ll do whatever it takes to guarantee her safety.

 

With evil forces out to siphon her magick, Kendra can’t afford to keep pushing Max away. And for once, Max’s cat and his man are in total agreement: Kendra is his to protect.

 

 

 

Revelation is an exciting blend of paranormal, action, suspense and steam!

 

Max and Kendra set flame to the pages with lots of chemistry and a relationship that reaches out and grabs readers and refuses to let go. Their romance is pretty hot and steamy but has lots of problems from external sources and past sources that adds suspense and heart melting emotions to the story that readers can’t help but get caught up in. All the characters are charismatic which really adds to the electrifying chemistry of the story and ensures that the readers wants to get well acquainted with each and every one. Kendra especially has reader’s full attention because she is an intense blend of warrior that is strong and bold but has a vulnerability about her that arrests the heart with Max being the uber hot alpha male that makes lingerie melt.

 

The intriguing action and suspense adds thrills to the fast paced story that keeps readers on the edge of their seats with anticipation and a few surprises. The story focuses on Kendra and Max’s relationship with bad guys that annoy the heck out of everyone and a betrayal that characters or readers alike never saw coming. 

 

The author’s world building keeps readers wanting to revisit her world with lots of engaging  and complex characters, intriguing takes on shifters and magick with a bit of a well-known character flaw (bigotry) spicing up the storyline. I really enjoy reading books by N.J. Walters because there is never a dull moment with her vivid characters, enthralling plots and brilliant worlds and I always want to know what happens next. Revelation and the de La Vega Cats are no exception, I was captivated from the first page to the last and I can’t wait to read Beneath the Skin.

Spot the Cat!

His new favorite spot -- right in front of my desk, in my office.

 

I got him this bed yesterday, and since it's such a rousing success, I went straight back to the store today and also bought him the remaining two they had left (they were on sale) ... This should hopefully go some way towards taking care of all that black fur on my living room rug!

Distillery Cats: Profiles in Courage of the World's Most Spirited Mousers
Distillery Cats: Profiles in Courage of the World's Most Spirited Mousers - Brad Thomas Parsons

Ok, typing up the title to this post I realise I should have knocked 1/2 star off for inaccuracy in titling.  (I seem to be on a roll with this lately.)  Profiles in courage is stretching a point a bit, and as the book only covers American brewers and distilleries, which the author states upfront in the introduction, having the title say World's Most Spirited Mousers is more than hyperbolic and is flat inaccurate.

 

But other than that, the book is gorgeous with fabulous illustrations and charming stories of the cats earning their keep protecting the country's grains.  Interspersed amongst the stories/profiles are quotes about cats from writers and songwriters, and cocktail recipes inspired by all these fabulous cats.

 

This is a great book for cat lovers; steps above those 'gift' books that just have funny or motivational quotes overlaid on photos of kittens.  Guaranteed to make you smile at least once or twice.
