They Call Me The Crazy Cat Lady @AmyMiller

Personal Note: I’m completely unsure who is still out there reading this but, for those who are, over the next week or so I’m going to be uploading reviews from all of the books that I listened to while I was “out.” I know it will be an overload and I apologize but I feel so badly for the authors and publishers who I’ve let down by not being able to post so please bear with me. Some of these books I realize most of you have already read but, hopefully, there will be some that still are new to you.


When the kids were growing up we somehow manage to acquire more than our fair share of cats. Okay, truth be told, we had about 13 or more living in or around the house. We lived at the top of a mountain at the end of gravel road and it appeared to be the favorite dumping ground for those nefarious people who cruelly dumped cats. The kitties found a home with us and we all lived happily ever after – except my husband who thought we were crazy. I understand the “crazy cat lady” persona better than most and I wear the label proudly.

I assumed that this book by Amy Miller would be nothing more than good comedy or, at best, a Rom-Com. I couldn’t have been more wrong. They Call Me The Crazy Lady snuck up on me and grabbed me and did not let me go. It is an emotional, uplifting, hopeful book about letting go of the past, making changes and moving forward. I laughed, I cried and I was angry at times but in the end I was incredibly happy with the way everything worked out for everyone. The story is beautifully written, the characters charmingly created, and the cats wonderfully portrayed. I loved every single line of this tale. The book is gender neutral even though the word “lady” is in the title, it’s a delight for both sexes and all ages. I also found it to be a bit genre defying and would simply say that it’s well-done fiction. I highly recommend it!

    1. Thanks Shalini!! I sure hope so. The last time the docs said I was good to go, I had a relapse. Hopefully this time around I really am okay. I have some semi-serious autoimmune problems that affect various things like nerves, muscles, etc., and this time just happened to be my vision. I know how to prevent it usually, but sometimes I just want to behave normally and then I pay a very dear price. So, I’m back to being boring again. Read more, play less. πŸ˜‰ I’ve missed you guys though – a LOT!

    1. Hannah you are too sweet. Thank you!!! I think you will like this one. It took me by surprise and wasn’t at all sappy. It had a very realistic, heartfelt, well-written story line that made me glad I read it. I hope you feel the same. Let me know!
