Kittens and Books

My name is Katie, and I am a reader, writer, and book blogger. I read mainly young adult, although sometimes I venture into adult or children's books.

My blog, where I post book discussions, reviews, and the occasional writing-related post, is Kittens and Books.

A Letter to My Cat: Notes to Our Best Friends

A Letter to My Cat: Notes to Our Best Friends - Lisa Erspamer

I received a free review copy of this book through Netgalley.

My reviews can also be found on my blog, Kittens and Books.

I couldn't avoid requesting this book. I listed the reasons: I have too many review copies, my TBR is a mile long, I've been busy and not reading as much lately . . . I still ended up with this book because, let's face it, what book could be more perfect for a blog named "Kittens and Books"?

Reading this has left me with very mixed feelings. Being a huge cat lover myself, many things these people had to write about their cats (or to their cats, really) are things I've thought about as well. Most of the humor was very relatable, as well as the sadness. And the humorous letters were most definitely my favorites.

The average letter here said something along the lines of, "I love you. Here's how we met. Thanks for being great." While that's cute at first, the letters didn't remain original enough to hold my interest, and for that reason I set the book down a number of times.

Overall, it was nice to read people appreciating their cats and there were some great rescue stories, but I can't say I would be missing much if I had decided to skip this one. The pictures were cute and a few of the letters were original, but for the most part they were too repetitive and it was easy to feel like I was reading the same things again and again.
