The Cat That Wanders By Itself

Mrs. D

Mrs. D gives us a really fun cat adventure and a loving tribute to the cat Nyda in the partially illustrated The Cat That Wanders By Itself!  Living on a farm, Nyda finds all sorts of great ways to get herself (and her human companion) in trouble.  This was a fun collection of misadventures that, for a cat lover like me, were equal parts hilarious and touching!  It reminded me pleasantly of Charlotte’s Web in a way.  Though a chapter book, I found it to be easy to read for all ages, and the illustrations sprinkled throughout the story were really well done and added another element of fun.  If you are a cat lover or love children’s chapter books, definitely come cause some cat mayhem with The Cat That Wanders By Itself!

The Doctor’s Daughter: Journey to Justice

Belle Blackburn

Belle Blackburn tells a wonderfully twisting tale of mystery in The Doctor’s Daughter: Journey to Justice!  The year is 1860 and everyone is shocked by a man’s apparent suicide, especially his daughter Kate.  But as she begins to search for more clues about her father’s demise, she finds that he may not have killed himself after all.  I love a good period piece, and Blackburn captured everything that I love about them!  Tack on a compelling mystery and a really likeable protagonist and I’m sold!  Blackburn knows just when to take things seriously and when to throw in a bit of humor, and it was so much fun getting to know her characters!  If you love a bit of adventure, mystery, romance, and humor all blended into a perfectly paced story, definitely come study medicine with The Doctor’s Daughter!

Deeply Personal

Alexis Macaluso

Alexis Macaluso brings us a truly unique read in the form of illustrated personal ads that tell a full range of stories in Deeply Personal!  Have you ever looked at a set of personal ads on Craigslist?  Macaluso’s collection of shorts tells the tale of the strangest of ads you would find on one of those sites using a picture and a few lines.  You find everything from doll collectors to truck drivers, from funny to downright creepy!  This was a really bizarre but ultimately really fun way to explore a side of humanity rarely looked at, and the format was all around fresh and original!  If you’re looking for a quick and entertaining read, definitely come leaf through the often odd Deeply Personal (and no, this isn’t a personal ad)!
