Why Do Authors Think It’s Okay To Viciously Murder Cats?!

Why Do Authors Think It’s Okay To Viciously Murder Cats?!

Posted June 29, 2020 in Bookish Things // 8 Comments

So. Something that has been annoying be about books, especially horror books, for a while now. Why in the world do authors think it’s okay to do horrible things to cats!? The first time I noticed this and really catalogued it was back in 2017 when I was reading Anna Dressed in Blood.  Throughout the entire book there’s this lovely cat that has been helping protect the family in his own sweet, loyal, kitty cat way.  Then right there at the end, the demon eats the cat.  And we know this, because Kendare Blake described the cat’s tail hanging limply out of the demon’s mouth.

GUYS GUYS GUYS GUESS WHAT. Winter is almost over. Here in Massachusetts, we probably still have a solid month of snow and cold and misery but THEN spring will be here!  And while, yes, I realize that really just adds mud into the mix, I’m still pleased.  I like the visual aesthetics of winter, but it really makes me hate leaving the house.  Particularly in the morning to go to work.  Also driving home in the dark is a major bummer.  I’m over it! Still, there was a lot of good to February, so lets get down to it! The Monthly Haul […]

  I have a lot of feelings about Allegedly. It made me mad, it made me sad, and it twisted and turned me around.  Several hours after finishing the book, I’m trying to decide at which point Mary was an unreliable narrator. First of all, it’s really well-done.  Allegedly is a debut, but it’s well-written and well-researched, enough to feel like it was was created by a seasoned author.  The language flows and adjusts itself well to different situations and speakers.  Additionally, the narrator (Bahni Turpin) is fantastic – she also read Children of Blood and Bone and did a great job with […]
