STARLIGHT by Erin Hunter
Starlight - Erin Hunter

Book 4 of series 2 of the Warriors series has the clans finding new homes for themselves. While there are questions of StarClan's approval of the new land, each clan claims a part of the new land. Fighting over the territories becomes hard because the clans are used to working together but for some it is easy to go back to the old hostilities. Squirrelflight and Brambleclaw have their problems to work out while Leafpaw struggles with her feelings for Cloudfeather and his for her.

I like how the clans worked together and still, in some ways, continue to do so. Firestar is still the leader amongst leaders regardless of how other leaders want to go back to the old hostilities. But the younger generation is coming into their own. It will be interesting to see who becomes leaders and who turn traitor.

Bono, Helen Brown

I enjoyed this reflective story of a rescued cat. But it is so much more. I received this ARC copy for free and voluntarily chose to review it. I think the cat and Helen in the story did some healing for each other. I've given it a 4.5* rating and miss my own kitties more. Helen is a breast cancer surviver, who needed some me time as well. Watching Bono in his daily activities, gave her reflective time and examples of living for today. I was touched in many ways as this story evolved. This is basically a clean read.

DAWN by Erin Hunter
Dawn - Erin Hunter

Twolegs have been destroying the Clans' homes and they must leave.  Following the five young cats who have returned with Midnight's message they leave and head towards the mountains to find a new home.

 

There is a lot of action and adventure as the Clans unite to fight the Twolegs and to save some of the Clans.  There is the infighting as the Clans must decide to leave or stay.  Firestar will not leave without all the Clans going together.  Pride gets in some of the Clans' way.  I shed many a tear as the Twolegs are capturing the cats; we are losing some of the older and younger ones; and as we remember those who have gone to the StarClan.  Cloudpaw's warrior ceremony wiped me out.

 

I cannot wait to see what happens in their travels.

[REVIEW] Herding Cats (Sarah's Scribbles #3) by Sarah Andersen
Herding Cats - Sarah Andersen

I feel like I'm a broken record when it comes to Sarah Andersen's art. I feel it speaks to me in so many ways. With finals being due next week and stress at an all-time high, I was glad the library had this ready for pick up. It's super fun and super real. I loved the last section where she speaks of being a creative person in this hellscape that is the internet. She gives tips that I found so valuable I had to give it to read to a friend.

 

Overall, a great, funny and relatable read.

No Cats Allowed
No Cats Allowed - Miranda James Athena College's new library director, Oscar Reilly, is a brash, unfriendly man who’s on a mission to cut costs, the former director left in disgrace after overspending the library's budget by $500,000 His first two targets are the college's archives and the rare book collection. Reilly very quickly enemies of everyone on staff, including Charlie, his fiery friend Melba, and the other three library department heads. Reilly has forbade to let Charlie bring Diesel into work with him any longer, and he wants to replace Melba with someone younger. Someone os playing pranks on Reilly to get back at him for how he has treated them. When Reilly's body is discovered in the library's basement between the compact shelving, the suspect list is filled with suspects aplenty. When an threatening e-mail puts the suspicion on Melba things take a turn for the worse. Charlie and Diesel are convinced that their friend is no murderer. The college's president convinces Charlie to act as the interim directory for the library. With this appointment Charlie is able to look into the problem of the overspent budget. When someone smashes Charlie's windshield and then takes a shot at him as he is entering his house, he knows he has to find the real killer before it's too late.

The characters are still as well written and delightful as they always are. We do get some advancement on a few of the ongoing subplots in the series which is nice. The mystery is full of suspects and motives for the crime, which Charlie works through until the solution is reached in a nice logical way. I did like the surprises the Sean sprang on Charlie. I also liked how Stuart's relationship is still going strong. I didn't like the character of Reilly even before he was killed off, he seemed to be a one dimensional jerk.
