Why You're Reading This Book:

  • You're an animal lover. 
  • You relish quirky books.
  • You're not afraid of going off the beaten path.
What's the Story?:

From Goodreads.com: "Even as a kitten, Nancy knew she was different. Unlike her peers, who were content to hunt mice and sunbathe all day, Nancy was born with a thirst for adventure.

She first tastes local fame after hitching rides in strangers' cars and visiting neighborhood pubs, but soon the fearless feline has started a blog, become a Facebook sensation, and dipped her paw in the world of show business. With the help of an agent, she moves to London and meets Baron Romeo III, the country's #1 cat actor. Will they be the Brad and Angelina of the cat world?

A purr-fect gift for the legions who adore LOLCats, and for anyone who ever dreamed of being famous and meeting Mr. Right, Sex and the Kitty is an irresistibly catty mélange of silliness, wit, and feline charm."

My Two Cents:

I randomly picked this book up off of Netgalley and I was happy that I did. This was another book that I read on vacation. I loved how quirky and how different the story was. It's a lot of fun. Nancy is a small black cat who goes on a lot of big adventures. It took me a little bit of time to get used to the idea that I was reading a book told from the point of view of a cat. I know that it sounds a little odd but give it a chance.

Like I mentioned, this book is written from the point of view of a cat. It sounds like a premise that could possibly not work that well. Luckily in this case, the premise definitely works. The way that the book is written makes it seem not so weird that a cat is telling you her life story. 

This book is very funny and had a lot of laugh out loud moments. This is definitely a lot different than my usual book fare but in a strange way, it sort of fit in to my taste. Nancy is a fun narrator. If you're looking for a fun read with a lot of humor. Definitely take a look at this book!


  1. It's not one I would ever just pick up off a shelf, but your review sure makes it sound like a fun read! Maybe I'll give it a try when my TBR shrinks a bit.

  2. This does not sounds like my kind of book, but I am glad you enjoyed it.
