Book 39: Hate That Cat

By: Sharon Creech

Plot (Goodreads Summary):


Room 204—Miss Stretchberry

February 25

Today the fat black cat
up in the tree by the bus stop
dropped a nut on my head
and when I yelled at it
that fat black cat said
in a 

I hate that cat.

This is the story of 
and cat.


I hate this book. And unlike the hate to love relationship between Jack and the cat, I will never stop hating this book.

I could not understand this book. Jack’s thoughts were kind of weird, but who am I to judge? I didn’t get anything except for the poems Jack wrote, those were pretty good.

A specific line that I hate and the line that made me realize how much I truly hate this book, is when Jack’s dad states that he sometimes wishes he couldn’t hear like his mom. Are you freaking kidding me? Are you choking on popsicle sticks? Have you thought about the fact that if you couldn’t hear than you could never hear your child’s laugh or voice, or when your spouse states that they love you?

I seriously can’t with this book. For your own health, please don’t read this.

Blogger’s Note:

I know it’s late but I legit thought that it was Tuesday. I had no school on Monday and that schedule kind of through me off. I know this is kind of short but I really don’t want to put energy into something that isn’t deserved.

Love you all ♡
