It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (March 05): 03/05/18
Last week we finally had wintery weather. We had rain, hail, and our local hills even had some snow. Snow is unusual for the Bay Area but not impossible.
When it isn't raining, my daughter and I take our youngest cat, Salmon out for walkies. She's been fascinated with the new backyard and clearly wants to explore. As we are at the edge of where things get very rural and there are predators nearby, we don't want to just let her out. Fortunately she's easily taken to wearing a harness.

Sounds like you had a busy week!
I loved the March trilogy. I am also curious about The Prince and the Dressmaker. I've seen some really positive reviews on it.
Comment #2: Monday, March 05, 2018 at 23:14:00
I own the entire trilogy and am looking forward to finishing it. The Prince and the Dressmaker is a lovely story. I hope you get a chance to read it.

That's good that your cat has taken to a harness. Mine have never been that cooperative lol.
Comment #4: Monday, March 05, 2018 at 23:14:00
Salmon is young and curious and full of energy. She's also a bit skittish so I think the harness feels like a good compromise for her. She gets to go outside but she's always attached to someone she trusts.

Aww Salmon is adorable!! We have a Tuxedo cat too- Maggie. :)
Comment #6: Monday, March 05, 2018 at 23:14:00
Nice! We have another tuxedo who is eighteen months older. She's named Tortuga.

Crazy weather everywhere!
Comment #8: Monday, March 05, 2018 at 23:19:00
Yes but we needed both the rain and the snow. Our snowpack was way below normal and now it's almost where it should be. We're expecting more later in the week.

Such a wonderful variety of books! I am getting curious about Seanan McGuire's books but haven't added any to my stack yet. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
Comment #10: Monday, March 05, 2018 at 23:19:00
I'm starting Seanan's book tonight. I'm looking forward to it.

It looks like you had a really productive reading week!
Comment #12: Monday, March 05, 2018 at 23:19:00
It was good except I had originally hoped to finish The Belles in time to post a review this past Saturday.

You walk your cat? What a sight to see! We lhavw a view of Mission Peak and I saw snow. Real trippy. We haven't tried hot pot around here but maybe now since they got a taste of it at my brother's.

More accurately, she walks us in circles around the backyard. She refuses to be led like a dog. But the harness and leash keep her from running off and she seems willing to wear it.
We can't actually see any of the snow from our home but a short drive east and up hill and we can.

Love the kitty harness. I've been trying to get my cats to wear one.
Comment #16: Monday, March 05, 2018 at 23:26:00
She took to it the first time we put it on. I've never had a cat as eager to wear a harness before.
Comment #17: Monday, March 05, 2018 at 21:38:08
Salmon is a cutie. I am glad you take her out on a harness so she is safe.
Comment #18: Monday, March 05, 2018 at 23:28:00
I'm relieved that she likes her harness as much as she does. Now in the afternoons, the first thing she wants to do once my daughter gets home is go for a walk!
Comment #19: Monday, March 05, 2018 at 22:19:34
Awww! Salmon is so cute in her harness. I wish my cats would tolerate a harness. I would love to take them for a walk!
Comment #20: Monday, March 05, 2018 at 23:29:00
So far she only likes to wear it in the backyard. The front yard is just too scary for her. That's fine with us. She gets to do her laps around our yard and then it's inside for a nap.
Comment #21: Monday, March 05, 2018 at 22:38:54
Your cat is adorable! Enjoy all of your books!
Comment #22: Tuesday, March 06, 2018 at 22:41:00
Thanks. I will do my best.
Comment #23: Tuesday, March 06, 2018 at 01:45:37
I've not seen a cat on a leash before!
Comment #24: Tuesday, March 06, 2018 at 22:42:00
She really wanted to go outside but she's also skittish. A harness seemed like a good compromise. Thankfully she agrees with us.
Comment #25: Tuesday, March 06, 2018 at 04:23:37
A friend has alerted me to The Prince and the Dressmaker - and really looking forward to reading it - but what struck me most of all was the Ghostbusters comic! Looks like a lot of fun!
Comment #26: Tuesday, March 06, 2018 at 22:45:00
Both are excellent.
Comment #27: Tuesday, March 06, 2018 at 06:30:56
Oh, Miss Pickerell. I haven’t heard that name in so long. It makes me want to do a blog post...lost book characters...maybe I will!
Comment #28: Tuesday, March 06, 2018 at 22:47:00
Oh you should! My Miss Pickerell review was my most popular one last week.
Comment #29: Tuesday, March 06, 2018 at 11:12:43
Enjoy all those books! I love the view from your home. We can see mountains from here, too.
Thanks for visiting my blog.
Comment #30: Tuesday, March 06, 2018 at 22:48:00
It's not quite the view from my home. I shot it from the car on the way home. But we do have lovely views around here.
