I am participating in the A-to-Z Challenge again this year. My theme is My Favorite Books. Most of the books I will be posting about, I have read more than once. After all, they are my favorites.
C is for The Cat Who… series of books by Lilian Jackson Braun.
I love reading books in a series. It provides a deeper sense of the characters. And I also like mysteries and cats, so what could be better than a mystery book series about cats.
The first book in the series is The Cat Who Could Read Backwards, published in 1966. The books feature a journalist, Jim Qwilleran, and his Siamese cats, Koko and Yum-Yum. A distant relative leaves him a huge fortune, with the restriction that he must live in a specific rural area. Koko, the cat, has a sixth sense and provides Qwill with clues to help him solve mysteries that come his way.
There are a total of 29 books in the series, with the last one published in 2007. There was to be a 30th book, but Lilian Jackson Braun died and the book was never published.
Charming series of books, especially if you like quirky cats.
