Den woke up this morning with a scratch across his nose. It seems that Roxie was on top of his pillow in the early hours of the morning and somersaulted over his face until he woke up. This is something she does often but this is the first time she scratched him. It’s fun for her to roll off of his head. We usually know she does it because when Den wakes up his hair is standing up, too. It’s really funny but this morning Den was not laughing.
However…she is being a very good kitty right now and I can tell she is really sorry. She is just so anxious for her day with Den to begin.
Good Girl Roxie!
What I am reading now…
this book…due out in March…another one of those creepy dysfunctional main character books…this time with a totally manipulative mom name Jane. She is narrating this story and as a reader I love the hints she gives as to why people continue to disappear…I don’t think I have ever read a book with a character like this before…she is sort of weirdly fascinating. I can’t stop reading this book. I fell asleep reading it and resumed it the minute I woke up.
Again…I changed my my mind about what I was going to read but I think these are up next…I love Charles Finch books. I have it as a real book. King Of Scars is a hardback book, too…I hope I remember how to hold them?
Have a great day!

Oh, no, bad Roxie! I had to smile at how you captured her remorseful face.
I have enjoyed some Kaira Rouda books, so I will check this one out. Have a great day!
Thank you! I was so lucky to get that look!
I really miss chicken pot pie.
A word about Den’s scratch. PLEASE tell him to be careful. I mean, I know he can’t know when Roxie is going to launch off of his face but if she were to scratch a cornea with all that bacteria cat claw stuff, it would be deadly. Remember how I injured my cornea and how long it took to repair itself… 3 years and that did not involve little paws dipped in cat litter.
OMG…we cleaned it thoroughly and I thought how lucky he was…we have to figure out a way to stop her nighttime antics.
Poor Den and his scratched nose and I bet Roxie didn’t mean to hurt him. Funny I just came across King of Scars as one of the entrants in my book challenge for 2019 chose it as a possible book win, so have it open now at the Book Depository site! So Jane would be an unreliable narrator or not?
You wouldn’t want to believe a word she says…but such a great book!

Aww she got a little over zealous huh? Cute kitty though!
The Favorite Daughter looks good, and sounds like creepy fun. 🙂
Those pot pies sound delicious!
The Favorite Daughter was intensely creepy fun!
I liked Rouda’s previous novel and hope to get a chance with the new one. It sounds pretty good! The pies sound fabulous. You have such great food options in your area.
This book was even better than the first one…the entire time I was reading it I didn’t realize it was the Best Day Ever author!
