Books that will make you purr, according to Spencer

Posted by Lisa Salvatore on

Hi hi hi! This is Spencer the junior staff cat here- or, as my fans call me, Spencer Pants. (I have no idea how my auntie Alison came up with that, but my mommy apparently liked the nickname, and all of a sudden, all of my fans were calling me Spencer Pants.) Since the human had a hard time convincing me to pose for all the books, I included pictures of myself being my usual pawsome, adorable self; I wanted to nap in my favorite box instead of showing all the books that will make you purr so hard.

4 books by dog people we love

Posted by Melissa Eisenmeier on

Don't tell my cats this, but I'm a big fan of dogs as well as cats. I think dogs can be cute, sweet, and lovable, despite what my cats will tell you. Here are four books I liked by confirmed dog people. Click the titles for links to read more about the books and buy them. About a week and a half ago, I read Stolen Away, by Kristin Dearborn. If urban fantasy is your thing or you're enjoying the new Charmed reboot, I definitely suggest this. Tricia is a single mom to 4-year-old Kourtney and 2-month-old Brayden. When the...

Like Game of Thrones? Here are 3 books we suggest. We suggest the Steel Empire series, by J.L.

The Second Mango, by Shira Glassman, is a staff pick around here.

Stan Lee's favourite books this week

Posted by Stan Lee on

Meow meow! Stan Lee the senior ranking staff cat here with some books I recommend. You can purr-chase them on the Carpe Librum website if you follow the links. I parked myself on Stolen Away, by Kristin Dearborn. This is a sure sign that it was a good book. Trisha is a single mom whose son is kidnapped; her daughter says a monster took him.  I sat on Avid Reader by Robert Gottlieb every time the human tried to read it. Me laying on this memoir about a guy in the publishing business made it hard for the human to read the...
