Reason for Discovery: ARC

This book was generously donated by the publisher for an honest review.

According to GoodReads:
This collection of oh-so-cute kitty comics—an online cult phenomenon, now for the first time in an adorable gift book—Pusheen combines the online reach of The Oatmeal’s How to Tell if Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You with the super-sweet appeal of Hello Kitty.With more than 2 million page views a month, 500,000+ blog subscribers, and 500,000+ Facebook followers, Pusheen is a pleasantly tubby gray tabby cat who has warmed hearts and tickled funny bones of millions worldwide with her signature GIF animated bops, bounces, and tail wiggles. Now, Pusheen is ready to make the leap from digital to print with her first comic collection!
I Am Pusheen the Cat features some of the most popular comics from the website, including Reasons I Love Fall, Career Options for Your Cat, and Christmas To Do List, as well as a healthy serving (at least 25 percent) of never-before-seen material that is sure to delight Pusheen’s many dedicated fans.

I have a 2-year old kitty named Lunabelle. Since I adopted her, I have become a bit of a cat person. Life does not revolve around Lunabelle; however, my husband and I do spoil her. She definitely has us wrapped around her little paws, but with a face like her, how can you say no?


I felt it was important to explain my cat background before jumping into my review for this book. If you hate cats with a passion, this is not the comic compilation for you. If you are anyone else though, you should look through this book, because Oh My Goodness! The cuteness just pulls you in. Welcome to the Dark Side. We have cookies and kittens. Although I have heard of Pusheen and have seen a few of the gifs floating around the web, I had not visited the Pusheen the Cat website before. For this reason, all of the comics in the book were new to me; I think I overloaded on the cuteness. For those of you who have seen the comic, nothing in this book will be new to you.

This book is a collection of short adorable little comics that will make you smile, especially if your cat does some of the things that Pusheen does. In one of the comics, Pusheen, pushes a plate off a table and it reminded me of Lunabelle (she likes to push lightweight objects like pens and eyeglasses off of tables to watch them fall). Another comic showed Pusheen's different sleeping positions, which reminded of how Lunabelle sleeps.

This is a cute book to get the cat lover in your life or a book to keep in case you need a pick-me-up.

4 out 5 cats for adorable-ness

This post had me smiling all the way.. A) Because we almost have identical kitties and B) because I completely relate. Once again I love your variety of books (I think I need to take the tip) and am always eager to see what you posted about next!!

Now I want to see a picture of your kitty! :) I have been thinking a lot about your comment about my variety in books. Up until a few months ago, I was just reading science fiction and fantasy. I must have subconsciously got burned out, because I seem to be reading the exact opposite of SF&F. :) I say read whatever makes you happy. :)

I will send you a mail :) I took photos last night to show you :) I have also been reading some very different books since I started blogging and have discovered some amazing authors and series! I still love my Paranormal Romance but is nice and refreshing to try something new :)

I can't wait to see the pictures! Do you know about the Vaginal Fantasy book club on GoodReads? It is a monthly paranormal book club on GoodReads. I used to participate every month for a while.

The book club name is a bit embarrassing, but the book picks are fairly varied within the paranormal romance genre.
