Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World (a book with a cat on the cover) Completed Feb 4th

MCM: Reading Challenge: Authors beginning with A

My Choice: Sparkle Abbey (Sparkle Abbey is the writing team of Anita Carter and Mary Lee Woods. Visit the authors at http: //

Why I chose this author: Other than the last name beginning with A she writes cozy mysteries and I love cozy mysteries. Her series is called: Pampered Pets Mystery Series

Story Line: 
Disgraced Texas beauty queen, Melinda (Mel) Langston, owns Laguna Beach’s Bow Wow Boutique. Mona Michaels, Mel’s most despised client, owns a star dog, Fluffy, who’s worth millions. When Mona is found whacked in the head with Fluffy’s Daytime Emmy, everyone wants Fluffy, but someone won’t stop at murder to get the pooch.

Secrets. Blackmail. Mel tackles the case like a dog with a bone. But can she dig up the truth before the killer buries her?

My Reaction: Big Thumbs Up! If it makes me want to keep reading no matter how late it is then I consider it an interesting book. I've liked the first two books of the series and the third one is sitting on my library shelf waiting for me to get to it. Get Fluffy is the second book of the series, the heroine of this one is the cousin of the heroine of the first one. I read it in 24 hours it is that interesting. 

reading Challenge 2017-January: Read a book written by someone under 30

My Choice: Red Rising (Red Rising 1) by Pierce Brown

Why I chose this book: Young writer and the title caught my interest.

Story Line: Slave discovers he's a slave, gets help to infiltrate the owner elite, passes tests to become owner elite

My Reaction: Fast and slow though for the most part it kept my interest throughout the whole book and intrigued me enough that I want to read #2 of the series

ESG: Reading challenge #7: Read a book with a one word title

My Choice: Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld (also meets the popsugar requirement of a story inside a story)

Why I chose this book:
