Cozy + Animals In Literature!

I have always adored animals, valuing their life equally to people.  A beautiful family of cats are family members to my fiancé & I in rural Canada.  One of our hobbies is reading.  My ultimate favourite literature is paranormal;  real observations or fictional, followed by mystery.  I prefer intelligently-plotted classics or emotionally suspenseful gothics but found myself liking a great many authors in the ‘cozy’ genre.  There is fine writing any place if you look keenly;  some novels so complicated or bold, I doubt they belong in the genre.

The ‘cozy’ categorization (although its name has never sat well with me) contains a good share of animals and the paranormal.  I’m pleased to belong to all of Yvonne’s “Socrates” groups, named after her very special cat.   Herein, please find my closure of her currently running “What An Animal” circle.  This page will also contain my title candidates for “Crusing Through The Cozies” 2014.  Yvonne, thank you for making fun events in a subect that so many of us enjoy!

    Thanks for signing up once again! Good luck in 2014!

  2. Carolyn I keep thinking about and helpful you have been and I didn’t feel well enough to do anything about my reviews. I have to put on today that are being release today. I have added a tumblr account not sure of the url to access it. I find it easier to used than WordPress.
