Considered one of my best summer time pleasures is spending time exterior with a great guide. Whether or not it’s on my deck, by the pool, or in a sidewalk cafe, there’s simply one thing about studying outdoor that makes one in every of my favourite pastimes much more particular.

For the previous couple of years, there was a notable absence of high quality cat books. I sometimes get dozens of pitches to evaluate new books all year long. I’ve gotten far fewer of them this yr, and of those I received, not many appeared like high quality titles. The books I did evaluate to this point this yr have been fantastic, however none of them a pure “leisure,” which is what I search for in the case of summer time studying.

I’ve been catching up on my “seaside reads,” however none of them have cats as even minor characters. I’m trying ahead to studying the advance reader copy of A Dish to Die For, the most recent in Lucy Burdette’s Key West Meals Critic Thriller collection, which at all times options cats, and naturally, I’ll evaluate it nearer to its publication date of August 9.

I’m at the moment studying Elin Hilderbrand’s The Resort Nantucket, and as normal, the queen of seaside reads doesn’t disappoint, however there’s not a single cat within the guide.

After all, in the event you want suggestions for cat books, you may at all times try my 13 years value of guide evaluations right here.
