VALENTINE’S DAY PET PARADE AND EARLY CATURDAY ART

While Queen Daisy Mae And I have been away from our blogs for a while since I got into what I call an accidental project(more about that later). Anyhow, I wanted to do something special for Valentine’s Day for everyone but didn’t know what to do. I talked to Queen Daisy Mae to see if she had any ideas. She did so she sent them to me while she was sleeping(not really). You see, she told me her ideas when I woke her from her nap to tell her  she had just gotten fed and it was time for her to get up and go down and get something to eat. So without further adieu, here is our valentine’s card from us. HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!! This post is also doubling for an early Caturday Art. Art was done on IPiccy .

Friendly Fill -Ins

Welcome to the Super Bowl Edition of Friendly Fill – Ins with our wonderful Hosts and Hostesses 15 And Meowing and Four-Legged Furballs . These week is very special because Angel Queen Tigger flew in to do Friendly Fill – Ins with us. So you will see three sets of questions and answers instead of 2. Questions will be in black and answers in italics. So without further adieu let’s get started.

ANGEL QUEEN TIGGER ANSWERS

1.) Superbowl Sunday means “didley squat” to me. I’d rather sleep and eat catnip. Although my human who was so kind to rescue me and give me a furever home.

2.) My human trying to tell me what to do bores me.

3.) If you have a human(s) that love you and give you a furever home, you have everything.

4.) My skill set could get me a job at a place as a boss, manager, angel and fun house scaring people. I could get a job as a lap warmer and cuddler too.

QUEEN DAISY MAE’S ANSWERS

1.) Superbowl Sunday means “didley squat” to me. I’d rather sleep. I do root for my human’s favorite team or pick whichever one is playing.

2.) Television bores me although I like this show on COZI TV Channel called “Murder She Wrote”. Love that show.

3.) If you have a lap to warm, a lap to sleep on, a human(s) who love you and a furever home and of course catnip, you have everything.

4.) My skill set could get me a job at a castle. I make a good queen.

QUEEN CRYSTAL’S ANSWERS

1.) Superbowl Sunday means “didley squat” to me unless my favorite team is playing, I have a team to root for and have wings to eat. I think I’m batting 2 for 3 this year. My favorite team isn’t playing this year and I’m rooting for the Rams to win and I’m planning on eating wings Superbowl Sunday.

2.) Hockey and Baseball bores me. Football is getting there. 

3.) If you have God, Love, Patience, Hope and a Cat, you have everything.

4.) My skill set could get me a job at a castle as a queen, a boss, owner of my own business. I easily could be a queen too because Queen Elizabeth is in my ancestry. (Not the current one). Cool isn’t it?

ARC Review: KNIGHT: Sons of the Alpha

knightecover2

INTRODUCTION

When I read this shifter book I had read no more than two books in the same genre. So I really didn’t know what to expect. I’ve come to learn that you don’t judge a book by its cover and excerpt. Some book excerpts will not always be as good as what the book turns out to be. If I were to judge the book on its cover only, I probably wouldn’t have picked it up. However, the book excerpt is very intriguing. I wasn’t disappointed. So I ask you not to judge a book by its cover or excerpt.

WHAT THIS BOOK IS ABOUT: GENRES

This book is in the Paranormal Romance/Shifter genres. Yes it talks about werewolves but it’s more about romance and shifters.

THE COVER OF THE BOOK

The cover of the book is incredible. Perfect for this book. I’m getting from people who just look at the cover and read the excerpt that this book is about werewolves and vampires… It’s not about that at all.

GOODREADS EXCERPT OF THE BOOK

Alexia Raine has a major problem–she’s being stalked by very dangerous men for some unknown reason, but one that will turn her entire world on its axis.

Neil Duran has five major problems: just when he’s closing in on a vicious werewolf killer that is kidnapping, torturing, and killing their people, he’s pulled from the case by his High Alpha, Rob Bryant, to locate and return the daughter of their most valuable and gifted shifter. If he doesn’t, their entire Wolf Pack in the Pacific Northwest might collapse and lose all hard-won territory, shifting the balance of powers and throwing the entire were-kind species into a world war.

Problem one—Alexia Raine never knew her real father.

Problem two—She doesn’t even know that shifters or were-kind exist.

Problem three—Their rival Pack wants her and will stop at nothing to acquire her for several unspeakable reasons. 

Problem four—She’s the most aggravating, infuriating, intoxicating woman he’s had the displeasure to rescue. And he may very well be falling in love with her.

Problem five—A wolf always finds and protects his mate.

MY REVIEW

This book like its excerpt was very intriguing. I found that this book was what I call a “page turner”. For those of you who doesn’t know what that is, it’s when you start a book and just can’t put it down. This book is a mystery, its suspenseful, action packed, a who done it and romance story all rolled into one. I’m so glad I read this book because the story was amazing. I loved it.

If you like paranormal romances and you like mystery, intrigue and action packed books you’ll want to read this one.

RECOMMENDATION

Would I recommend this book? Absolutely. Parents and grandparents if you’re not sure about this book or any book for that matter, my advice to you is use common sense. Please read it first before the child does if you want peace of mind. However, I think you’ll find with this book anyway it’ll be OK to read.
