Leigh is a teenager whose mother commits suicide. 95% of the book is about Leigh‘s grief, anger, & attempts to understand why. She travels to #Taiwan to meet her mother‘s parents for the first time. It‘s an emotionally draining book, told by an angry teenager with attitude, who was like that before her mother‘s death. The main character isn‘t likeable. It had a magical realism angle, which was necessary to tell the story, but there were logical ⬇️

Texreader gaps that bothered me throughout. The main character experiences these “magical” moments but almost never questions how or why. It kept jarring me out of the story because I kept wanting to ask the main character: “Don‘t you wonder why you can see back in time?” just as an example. I definitely enjoyed the descriptions of Taiwan since I was reading this book for #readingasia2021. This is also my #letterA book for #litsyatoz. And 15 points for ⬇️ 14h
KristiAhlers Wow that‘s sounds heavy but good at the same time 14h

I hit 300,000 Litfluence points! I meant to catch the even number so it must have happened after I went to sleep this evening. Anyway I‘d like to do a giveaway to thank all of my friends here on Litsy. But I‘d prefer to do it after all the season‘s swaps so I don‘t mess up someone‘s gift giving. So look for a post sometime in January.

And for all our #foodandlit Littens, your hours reading for #foodandlit COUNT as a readathon for #wintergames! So you don‘t have to give up your book for the #Philippines for December to play.

So this is a reminder that the #Philippines is our last country this year!

Here‘s a list of books in which Koko the cat solves mysteries. I‘ll have to see if I can find some.

AmyG These are fun cozy mysteries. 5d
LibrarianRyan that list has to be way longer than that. That seems way to short 5d
Texreader @LibrarianRyan Since this book was published in the 1990s and if the author was or is still alive, then I expect there would be more. It‘s funny how this book is written—as if readers only read it when it was published. She made no leeway for readings some 20+ years down the road, much less 10. 🤷‍♀️ It really shook me when she mentioned “tennis great Jimmy Connors” was a loving cat owner. Times have changed. (edited) 5d

LibrarianRyan @Texreader ahh that makes since. I remember there was a few years where there wasn‘t a new book and I thought she died. (I got her mixed up with another cat lady) and then her books started showing up again. 4d
Texreader @LibrarianRyan Do you recommend them? 4d
LibrarianRyan This series and the sneaky pie brown series. Both long big hits even with dog lovers. They are both cozy cat mysteries with devoted fans. Not my type of book but I have never had a patron complain when I recommend them. Plus they don‘t HAVE to be read in iorder. 4d
rockpools I haven‘t read any of these in years, but for a long while they were my go-to reliable comfort read. I should start at the beginning one day! 4d

There are poems and excerpts and short stories in this encyclopedia of cats. As a result, I am reading for the first time Edgar Allan Poe‘s short story, The Black Cat. I can‘t say I care for it very much given the cruelty in it. There should have been trigger warnings, but I don‘t think such things existed in the 1990s when this book was compiled.

My son loaned me his books as I make my way through the 20+ hours of the tagged book (and hopefully the next 40+ hours of the next two LOTR books).

I‘m in the homestretch now for #litsyatoz. My last two letters A and Q are underway! Z got cut off. I read Zombie Party for scarathlon. Books in bold are wishful thinking to read by year‘s end. Not too shabby for having about a 3-month slump. But jury selection in my big trial starts this week, so how much spare time I‘m going to have is questionable. Hoping to win the trial first and foremost and if I can, meet most of my 2021 Litsy challenges.

Bookwormjillk Good luck 🍀 6d

Kaspar: Prince of Cats | Michael Morpurgo

Pickpick

This is a sweet story of an orphan boy who becomes a bellboy at the London Savoy when he meets the beautiful Russian Prince Kaspar the cat. His adventures with the cat lead him to stowaway on the Titanic, “the only cat who survived its sinking.” Gorgeous illustrations. This is the British version and it‘s a gorgeous book. The book says it is for 7+ years, maybe so, for a child who can deal with a lot of death and sadness. #letterK #litsyatoz
