My 2017 Purrfect Reading Challenge Sign-Up

The Purrfect Reading Challenge is hosted by Yvonne at Socrates' Book Reviews.

Here are the levels she has set up:

Purring - Read 1-10 cat mysteries
Kneading - Read 11-20 cat mysteries
Meowing - Read 21-30 cat mysteries
Catnip - Go crazy and read at least 31 and go as high as you'd like - the sky is the limit!

The 'biggie' requirement is that the books are to be mysteries in which cats play a major role.  No, seriously.  Stumped?  There's a list on

I'll be going for the first level (Purring 1-10 cat mysteries).  I love mysteries.  We have five cats.

Amanda’s Books and More  Pieced Pastimes

I do quite a number of link-ups, mostly of them on M, T, TH and F.  Saturday was looking kind of lonely, so I went looking and found the above link-ups in The Ultimate Link-up Party List by Julie at Girl on the Move blog!  If you like link-ups you really need to see that list!

Anyway, since some of them are about food, they might think...why is she linking up a reading challenge about cats?  Well, sometimes the twain DOES meet:


The small town of Frog Ledge, Connecticut, has wholeheartedly embraced Kristan "Stan" Connor's new business--preparing quality organic treats for dogs and cats. On a healthy diet, the animals may live longer. . .but one local farmer won't be so lucky. 

As Halloween approaches, Stan is asked to cater a doggie costume party hosted by the Happy Cow Dairy Farm. Part of a local co-op, Happy Cow specializes in organic dairy products, and farmers Hal and Emmalee Hoffman have started opening up the farm for parties, offering a "haunted" corn maze as an added attraction.

When Hal's lifeless body is found in the maze, the police at first suspect his wife, but Stan soon learns the dairy farmer had plenty of enemies--from bitter family members to shady business associates. If Stan can't extract a kernel of truth from the labyrinth of lies, she may be the next one to buy the farm. . .

Includes Gourmet Pet Food Recipes!

  1. I love cats and have two of them keeping me entertained. I am not sure if I have ever read any cat mysteries. Great that they give a list to help with the challenge! Good luck! :)
