So, for all of the cat lovers, I just read The Improbable Cat by Allan Ahlberg. Oh my goodness. it was a little spooky, but in a YA book kind of way. I literally couldn't put it down, because of that unusual cat. I was never quite sure what was going on, just like the narrator, who was a very convincing young adult character.
Gave up on the zombie book, and have returned to my "No Zombie" policy. I also have decided that vampires are right out as well. I think I'm going to read more children's and young adult literature, because that is where my heart really is. Ok, and girlie relationship books.
One of the blessings of being a grown-up is being able to decide independently what one chooses to read. I'm really glad about this freedom. I mean this was true in my youth as well, and Lord knows I read just about anything, but when you're a grown-up, you don't, like, have to write a paper about it, unless that is your work, of course.
What really drives me crazy about adult books is the violence, which is why I'm leaving the zombie world. I know some readers really like a good revenge story, but not me. I just like to try to be happy. Maybe it's the years of trying so hard to be affable, but you can ask my husband how I like a good squabble, and more importantly, getting over it.
So, yes, time to read kid's books for awhile. Will keep you posted.
