This is another one led by Yvonne at Socrates’ Reviews, and you can use her Purrfect Reading Challenge 2019 page to sign up too. If you don’t have a blog, you can use the Purrfect Reading Challenge Goodreads group to keep track. I use both, checks/balances and all that. I was just going to leave this challenge as a link on the 2019 Reading Challenges page, but I wanted to link up on Yvonne’s blog and decided to keep a list here after all.
Based on the number of cat mysteries I read last year, I upped my last year’s number to Catnip or at least 31. A cat does have to have a major role in the book, not just be a cute kitty on the cover. 😉
The levels as shown on Yvonne’s blog:
Purring – Read 1-10 cat mysteries
Kneading – Read 11-20 cat mysteries
Meowing – Read 21-30 cat mysteries
Catnip – Go crazy and read at least 31 and go as high as you’d like – the sky is the limit!
Have fun reading mysteries with cats! (Magical Cats by Sophie Kelly is a really good series!)
- A Charming Cure–Tonya Kappes–Mr. Prince Charming, June’s cat always plays an important part in this series.
- Death and Daisies–Amanda Flower–Ivanhoe is a very intuitive Scottish Fold cat that pays attention and knows what people are telling him–he sometimes acts on it.
- A Scandal in Scarlet–Vicki Delany–Moriarty is the shop cat who usually doesn’t do much out of the ordinary, but I thought this should count because he actually does something important to the case.
- Dead Editor File–G.G. Collins–Oscar is Taylor Browning’s Abyssinian that almost seems human.
- Dead as a Door Knocker–Diane Kelly–Sawdust, Whitney’s cat, gets to play a important part in apprehending the killer.
- Murders and Metaphors–Amanda Flower–Emerson, the bookstore cat, is an important main character
