Another book tag for mental health!
This one is about cats and comes with its own graphics!
Look how cute these graphics aaarrre.
Confession: I am terrified of cats.
I grew up with dogs, so cat body language is completely unfamiliar to me.
I am DOING MY BEST to figure out cat behavior.
Black Cats: Pick a book that doesn’t get the love it deserves.
I AM NOT EXAGGERATING THE BONE ORCHARD‘S EXCELLENCE.
GET ON THIS NOW.
THE CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT IS UNMATCHED.
WAS THERE AN UNEXPECTED ROMANCE FOR ME TO OBSESS OVER? OBVIOUSLY.
White Cats: Pick a book with great disability rep
Transcendent Kingdom explores both drug addiction and debilitating depression.
In this book, both are brought on and/or exacerbated by the stresses of being an immigrant.
I know I just listed a number of serious things, but this book ALSO said, “How do you feel about daddy issues?”
I DO NOT FEEL GOOD ABOUT THEM.
This book is uplifting but it HURTS A LOT. Kind of like Ladybird.
Ginger Cats: Name your favorite male character
You handsome fool.
Luca Fontaine of The Councillor ruined me for any other man, real or fictional.
E. J. Beaton must have seen the audience response to Kylo Ren and gone, “MORE!!!”
Tortoiseshell Cats: Name your favorite female character
I adore Princess Malini from The Jasmine Throne.
This might contradict something I wrote in a recent post, but hear me out: I love a manipulative character who is self-aware.
Malini knows that her manipulations hurt people. She also knows it’s the most viable method of survival.
Sometimes people who are trying to survive do unpleasant things.
Calico Cats: Name a character you wish was your best friend
Crow from The Angel of the Crows reminds me a lot of my friend Nikita.
Crow has the added bonus of being a genius detective and lie-detecting angel.
He seems fun.
Tabby Cats: Name a character who’s the life and soul of the party
Alexander Woodroe from All the Feels loves making jokes and starting fights.
If you threaten a woman? Fight.
If you make a fatphobic joke? Fight.
If you’re mean to yourself? FIGHT.
Alex writes dirty fanfic and demands attention. I love him so.
A Clowder of Cats: Name your favorite fictional squad
Crescent City has sort of a reverse harem thing going, where all manner of hot man flocks to Bryce for plot reasons.
I’m INTO it.
(Ruhn Danaan is my favorite.)
The end of book 2 promised an EVEN BIGGER SQUAD for book 3.
Cats still scare me.
I am determined to make them my friends, however.
As long as they don’t bite me.
