It’s #gangstercats check-in time!
(Let’s just pretend I posted this on the 15th, instead of leaving it unfinished in the drafts folder, where it languished for an extra week. Bad readalong hostess!!)
So here we are only 15 (now 23) days into #gangstercats (aka the Pet Sematary readalong), and some of us might already have finished the book.
I’m pretty sure if you start Part 2 in the late afternoon/early evening (you know, while it’s still light out and you think you’re safe), you will find that you can’t help yourself, and you’ll just keep reading, and reading, and the WHAMMO. The end. And it’s dark. And maybe time for bed…
HOWEVER. It’s okay! Because we have gangster cats (catucks?) to protect us. Introducing Clementine (Care), Pascow (Jen), Rosie (me), and Tony (Ti):
Despite what some people (Care!) think, these are NOT ducks. They are cats, because last I checked, ducks do not have whiskers. Plus, Amazon called them cats, so hello…they are cats. Specifically gangster cats, all tricked out in their best gangster duds, prepared to fight evil zombie cats that jump out of scary books. Just look at those eyebrows on Pascow…would you want to meet him in on a dark path at midnight, leading to a Pet Sematary? I think not.
Anyone else got a gangster cat to share? I’ve been a little lax in the Twitter/Instagram/blog reading, so let me know if I missed your introduction of your gangster cat.
And speaking of blogs, I do believe Care and Ti have posted their thoughts (off to go catch up with that in a sec). I’ll do a proper link up next month, but has anyone else posted about the book yet? I know Jen was the first to finish, along with Ti. For those of you who think you’re behind…YOU’RE NOT! I’m not going to do a final post until April 15th, so you have plenty of time! Heck, I’m not even going to post what I thought about the book until next month, although I should start working on a draft, so I don’t forget what I want to say! Because…lots to say about this one!!
I will say I never did have to put the book in the freezer, although I did keep the cover turned face down at all times, because I just couldn’t stand to look at a maniacal looking Church…until Rosie came up with this brilliant tactic…
So how are the rest of you handling this one??
