- Nights with a Cat Vol. 1 by kyuryuZ: I love how many mangas about cats Trent and I have been able to find, and they are all so cute! This one is about a brother who has his sister and cat move in, but he’s never lived with a cat, so he is getting used to it all.
- Pippa Park: Crush at First Sight by Erin Yun: I’m reviewing this tomorrow!
- The Final Gambit by Jennifer Lynn Barnes: Oh man! It all came together, didn’t it?! I loved the ending to this book. Everything that wasn’t clear became clear and everything that needed to be settled was. I am glad the author is making a Hawthorne brothers’ book from their point of view, but I’m also happy with how the ending of the mystery turned out.
- I Will Not Lose in Super Shoes! by Jonathan Fenske: A short fun easy read that breaks the forth wall during a reading race that has an ending alluding to the tortoise and the hare.
- Knitting for Dogs by Laurel Molk: Izzy can make just about anything that she can imagine, so when she took up knitting as a new hobby, she knew it would be easy for her. But then it wasn’t. This feeling of defeat was new to Izzy, and she has to figure out how to get past it. She knows that failure comes with creativity some time, but she definitely wants to figure it out. I love how she took failure as a challenge and went forward to figure out how to take what she could do and be successful with it. What a great lesson told through an adorable story with Max the dog as Izzy’s sidekick!
- It Starts with Us by Colleen Hoover: I am so glad that Colleen Hoover wrote this book chronicling the survival after abuse as well as successful co-parenting. I loved seeing Atlas and Lily’s love finally have a chance!

I already had Knitting for Dogs on hold at the public library. That cover picture! Crochet has always been the craft I could never master, and my dogs have never been particular supportive of knitting, since the needles can be pokey. Thanks for a glimpse at some different books.
I’m looking forward to Final Gambit & will share Knitting for Dogs with a granddaughter, who knits! Thanks, Kellee, wishing you a good week ahead!
Colleen Hoover is a new name to me, but our public library has several of her books and people seem to enjoy her work. Knitting for Dogs also sounds like a good read. I have a niece who’s learning to knit and loves to read. This may be the perfect gift for her. Thanks for sharing!
The Inheritance Games trilogy sounds fascinating and I love that all the books are out. May need to check that out next year.
