Purrfect Reading Challenge



When I found this challenge combining cats and mysteries, I knew it had to go on my list. It is a simple challenge – read books where a cat is a main character and the genre is mystery.

Instead of reading this as a challenge for the year of 2020, I think I am going to make it an ongoing challenge. I can’t read just one, so over time, I am going to read them all*

*all being a flexible word to mean all that I find interesting…

January 1, 2020: I realized as I looked at this list that I did not include Joe Grey. Trust me, I have read all of the books of the series and have recently discovered that the series has ended. Joe Grey has been added to the bottom of the list, although he will always be first in my heart.
