Purrfect Reading Challenge 2019

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!)

My 31:

  1. A Charming Cure by Tonya Kappes A Charming Cure–Tonya Kappes–Mr. Prince Charming, June’s cat always plays an important part in this series.
  2. Death and Daisies (A Magic Garden Mystery #2) 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.
  3. A Scandal in Scarlet (A Sherlock Holmes Bookshop Mystery, #4) 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.
  4. Dead Editor File by G.G. Collins Dead Editor File–G.G. Collins–Oscar is Taylor Browning’s Abyssinian that almost seems human.
  5. Dead as a Door Knocker by Diane Kelly Dead as a Door Knocker–Diane Kelly–Sawdust, Whitney’s cat, gets to play a important part in apprehending the killer.
  6. Murders and Metaphors by Amanda Flower Murders and Metaphors–Amanda Flower–Emerson, the bookstore cat, is an important main character
  7. Death by Coffee by Alex Erickson Death by Coffee–Alex Erickson–Bookshop cat Trouble lives up to his name, while his litter brother, Misfit, wreaks havoc in Krissy’s house.
  8. Live and Let Chai by Bree Baker Live and Let Chai--Bree Baker–There may not be a cat on the cover, but don’t let that fool you. Maggie is an awesome white cat that sort of came with Everly’s house, and I think she is going to be an important character.
  9. No Good Tea Goes Unpunished by Bree Baker No Good Tea Goes Unpunished–Bree Baker–Maggie the cat continues to sense danger and hiss if Everly is in danger
  10. Restaurant Weeks Are Murder by Libby Klein Restaurant Weeks Are Murder–Libby Klein–Figaro is such a stinker, but I found myself cheering him on this time lol
  11. One Taste Too Many by Debra H. Goldstein One Taste Too Many–Debra H. Goldstein–RahRah is quite a cat and helped take down a killer
  12. This Spells Trouble by Stacey Alabaster This Spells Trouble–Stacey Alabaster–Indy is Ruby’s talking cat
  13. Something Read, Something Dead by Eva Gates Something Read, Something Dead–Eva Gates–Charles is the library cat
  14. The Pomeranian Always Barks Twice by Alex Erickson The Pomeranian Always Barks Twice–Alex Erickson–Wheels the cat is the regular pet that stays–the others are going to their forever homes. Wheels is pretty awesome!
  15. Cat Got Your Crown: A Kitty Couture Mystery Cat Got Your Crown–Julie Chase–Penny is the princess and shop cat, but newcomer Rune is the intuitive one.
  16. Lending a Paw by Laurie Cass Lending a Paw–Laurie Cass–Eddie is the most awesome cat and loves going with Minnie in the bookmobile as its unofficial mascot.
  17. Murder Once Removed by S.C. Perkins Murder Once Removed–S.C. Perkins–NPH (Neil Patrick Housecat) belongs to Lucy’s condo manager, but NPH is fiercely protective of Lucy
  18. Murder in Tranquility Park by J.D. Griffo Murder in Tranquility Park–J.D. Griffo (Lola the cat is quite the diva–she knows her real name is Gina Lollobrigada)
  19. Sweet Revenge by Morgana Best Sweet Revenge–Morgana Best (Mongrel the cat was a good protector)
  20. If the Broom Fits by Sara Bourgeois If the Broom Fits–Sara Bourgeois (Merimus the cat was the family talking familiar)
