My mom is the one who bought "Animal Attraction" by Anna David. She told me it was a great read and that I'd enjoy it because I'd be able to relate to some of the stories Anna tells about her cats. I finally sat down and read it this afternoon and wow was my mom right: Anna's Toby is very much like my cat, Sasha! Like Toby, Sasha doesn't trust easily and doesn't like people who aren't HER people. But unlike Toby, Sasha had a more stable time when she grew up, and I think she's just a little more trusting and friendly than Toby is.
"Animal Attraction" is Anna David's story of how and when she discovered she was a cat person. She details her life, and what led her to the decision to adopt not one but two cats. The first one was the aforementioned Toby, a female cat she mistakenly thought was male. The second was Lilly, a super friendly cat that can get along with anyone anywhere. She talks about her struggle to get over her drug addiction, and how she was interacting with her two girls all the while. It's a quick, enjoyable read, and you should definitely give it a try if you like cats. In fact, you should probably give it a read even if you don't like cats, just so you can gain an understanding of cat people!
*As of September 24/15, I am not taking any more requests from authors to read their books. I currently have too many books to read. I'll update this if/when that changes.*
I currently have 164 fiction books just sitting in my room to read (although that doesn't stop me from randomly picking books up at work or buying them on Kindle!). I've been keeping track of them on a paper list for years. This blog shares what I read as I attempt to get "the List" down to a more manageable number.
If you'd like to know what books are on the List, check out my Goodreads shelf devoted to them - it's my physical list digitized! I've also got a shelf for every book I've reviewed here on this blog.
Not everything I review here is actually on the List. Some books come from the library, some books are nonfiction (which are not included on the List), some books are on my Kindle (which have never been included on the List), and some books are given to me by friends and family.
Note: as of April 12/14, I am not going to add the *spoiler* warning I used to when I'm giving away details of books. I want to talk about the books I've read in whatever detail I'd like. So if you haven't read a book I'm reviewing, you might not want to read the review.
