Eon wasnt really tugging my interests, and I started a new series. The familiars by Adam Jay Epstein. The familiars book is about a alley cat being chosen as a familiar. He has no magic ability whatsoever, he hasn't told his friends, skylar and gilbert he is not the telekinetic cat he claims to be. His being an alley cat can help his friendsrealize you don't need magic to save the day. If you like talking animals and wizards, this is on your list!

MissYaremcio This sounds like such a cute book! Thanks for the review! Remember to include all elements of the assignment in your next post (you were missing the pacing)! 2mo

#onthenightstand is a mess of overflow books (some my daughter's, some mine), my kindle, and a cat who makes me open the blinds every morning at first light so she can bird/squirrel/bunny watch. #aprilbookshowers #catsoflitsy

BarbaraJean So pretty and color-coordinated (even the kitty)! 3y
LaraReads @Beckys_Books Thanks! 💕 There's a matching one on the hubby's nightstand. But his isn't nearly as fun! 😂😴 3y
LaraReads @BarbaraJean Thank you! And yes, I'm sure she'd think she blended perfectly even if she was bright pink! 😹That's her 'spot.' Well, one of a million. She's the baby of the family, so everything is her's! 😻 3y
