I felt the story was a bit drawn out but overall I enjoyed the mystery and family dynamics. Great distraction to kick off the weekend with.

Saying Goodbye | Mike O'Mary
post image

My husband and I had to say goodbye to a true legend today, our Sullivan. He was my reading buddy and a true lover of books (to sleep on). I‘m devastated - he was only in this world for 13 years and it just wasn‘t enough. Even during his treatment for cancer the last few months, he never lost his spirit. ❤️ #sullivancat

Between this and the awfulness in Ukraine, I‘m really struggling to read right now.

Finally finished this! Took a lot of effort over two weeks where I had tons of other stuff going on, so am pretty proud of myself. While it could have benefited from some editing, this series is a real comfort read for me and I liked it a lot. It also explained a lot of what happened in season 5 of the show, although I‘m scratching my head a little at how the story seems to be diverging.

#SullivanCat can barely lean on this book, it‘s so big 😹

Scochrane26 If you haven‘t read the Lord John series & her short stories, you may want to before reading the next one. 12mo
cariashley @Scochrane26 ooh thank you for the tip! I haven‘t cracked into any of those yet. 12mo
Scochrane26 @cariashley They‘re not as long & are really good on audio. 12mo

If I don‘t count the play-in round, this is my last #TOB21 read!! I just started it so have a lot to get through this weekend (plus I have my work book club book to read by Thursday 😬). I‘ve been working crazy hours and it‘s really hampered me in the final stretch. I‘ll try to read the play-in round winner if I can - I think that bracket is first. #catsoflitsy #sullivancat

Luster: A Novel | Raven Leilani
post image

“Searing” is an understatement for this novel - the writing is razor sharp and darkly funny, which is why the undercurrent of sadness is almost surprising when it becomes apparent. I wanted a little more of that emotion and less of the distance, though. Definitely an impressive debut in any case, and I‘ll be on the lookout for whatever she writes next. #botm #tob21

#SullivanCat is enjoying putting away the Christmas decorations. #catsoflitsy

Catsandbooks Sullivan is adorable! 💖 2y
cariashley @Catsandbooks only when he‘s sleeping... 12 years old and still into EVERYTHING 😹 2y

Unpopular opinion alert... Not nearly as enamored with this one as everyone else seems to be. It dragged on and on, especially in the beginning, with no real sense of purpose or believable conflict. I really struggled to get through it and am mad it took me two full weeks. Meh. #sullivancat

LeeRHarry I‘m totally with you 😊 (edited) 2y
cariashley @LeeRHarry yay glad I‘m not alone! 2y
Cathythoughts I couldn‘t get into it ... not for me either 2y

Wow. This was simply excellent and I did not see all those twists coming. The less you know about this book before going in, the better - just expect a pretty wild ride once it gets going. The last two thirds flew by for such a long book. Can‘t wait to read the rest of Sarah Waters‘s books, I‘ve only read this and The Paying Guests so far and have loved both! #sullivancat

erzascarletbookgasm I loved this book! Haven‘t read The Paying Guest, but I loved this other one 2y
cariashley @erzascarletbookgasm I need to read that one, it looks so good! 2y
readordierachel I really enjoyed this too! 2y

Very proud of myself for finishing another book! I thought this was ok - intriguing and well written. But I was expecting a lot more out of an NYT top ten book of the year. It felt unfinished, but I‘m also glad it wasn‘t longer. #PercyCat and #SullivanCat are in agreement 🐱🐱 #catsoflitsy #KAL
