The Penderwicks Are (Of Course) My First Post

First post! And of course, it’s in honor of the fact that I just saw the cover of the final The Penderwicks book! The last one!! Lydia!!! A Penderwick wedding!!!!

I’m very excited, if you can’t tell.

(My friend and I spent twenty minutes fangirling yesterday while about ten people looked on in horror. It was pretty great.)


So in case you haven’t read The Penderwicks (which you totally should!) then the basic premise is about four sisters and their dog, and all the adventures they have one summer at a brilliant place called Arundel, and how it affects the rest of their lives.

Those books, to me, always feel like coming home, back to a cozy place filled with characters I love and scenes that are always familiar.

Basically, I’m super excited for The Penderwicks At Last.


That’s hello, in Latin. The v is pronounced like a w, which I find kinda wacky, but then again, it’s the Romans. While great at pretty much…everything (except staying alive), they were also pretty weird.

Salve, I’m Cat. I’m also pretty weird.


Yes, I’m the one hanging from the rope because I accidentally fell off the wall. (I didn’t say I was that great at rock climbing.)

Anyway, I’m a little off-topic. This is my first solo blog, and this is also the place I’m going to write and discuss all the books I love, the books I hate, as well as the entire spectrum of books in between. Plus, there’ll probably also be random pictures of places I go, things I write, and of course, my lovely dog, Marley.


That’s Marley. He would sell his soul for cuddles. Granted, so would I.

And with that, enjoy my nonsense and procrastination.
