Howdy YAL!

I used to be the blogger called YAL Book Briefs, but I grew bored of the handle and changed my name to Howdy YAL. I also respond to MJ. I like to read, write, eat truffles, and watch bad Lifetime movies. 

Kitty Kitty - Michele Jaffe This book is complete whacky fun. The mysteries are well thought out and the characters are enjoyable as well. It's a shame that Jaffe hasn't been contracted to write anymore because I definitely am wondering what happened to Jas and her friends. There are a few problems with the book. Nothing too major, but I do feel that there were times the book came off a bit silly. Also, the footnotes that were used throughout the books became a little annoying at times. I still think though if you like light hearted mystery novels this book takes the cake. Best Feature: Jas and her pals: I really loved Jaffe's characters. All of them had their own little quirks which made them hilarious. Jas was a great narrator, though I'd tell her to lay off the coffee time to time. But I always find that whenever I read a Bad Kitty novel I can't help but smile. And that's a really awesome thing, ya know?Worst Feature: Too zany: At times the humor was just a bit too slapstick. Take the use of footnotes. There's only so much of a running gag that a person can take. I know that when my sister read these books, she got so annoyed with the footnotes that she stopped reading the book. Which was really a shame because they're such great books. The bad thing about the footnotes and for that matter the other runnings gags, is that they actually sort of play an important role to the books. So, you have to read them. There's no way of escaping them. So if they bother you, my recommendation is to read the book in small increments.To see Full Review Click Here: http://yalbookbriefs.blogspot.com/2012/02/bad-kitty-series-michele-jaffe.html
