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.
