The Ugly Stepsister Strikes Back

I picked up this little gem of a book for my kindle back when it was on sale. I had it for a few months before I finally got around to reading it. I was hooked after the first chapter.


Sariah Wilson creates a perfect teen angst Cinderella story with a nice twist. This time it is all about the ugly stepsister. Finally, can the under dog win for once? Although, in the real Cinderella the stepsisters were vile and you hated them right off the bat. The ugly stepsister in this book, Mattie, is far from vile. She's a quiet, likes to draw, and head over heels in love with her sister's boyfriend. What's a girl going to do?

She's going to turn the tables, that's what!

This was a cute, quick, and very fun read. My only gripe was that the author never let you forget how in love Mattie is with a boy named Jake. Forget in love, this girl is obsessed. I found my eyes rolling several times until I paused and a little voice in the back of my head spoke to me. This voice reminded me of a crush I had in high school, and yes, I was obsessed with him. So obsessed that it bordered on stalking I'm sure. So in actuality, Miss Wilson captured the true teenage girl in Mattie. We've all been there. You can't deny it.

Does Mattie get the boy in the end? Does her sister Ella help her or turn against her? You'll have to read to find out and trust me, you won't be disappointed. Plus, there is a shout out to Sixteen Candles in this book and it made me squeal. I so love that movie!!

I gave this one four stars on Goodreads.

You can find the book here on Amazon.

If you're sitting there saying you never obsessed over someone as a teenager then you aren't being real with yourself! =P

Help, My Cat is Pooping Outside the Litter Box!

This is Princess Leia. Lately, little miss Leia has had a bit of an issue. She's been pooping outside of the litter boxes. See? Even a cat behaviorist can have cats with issues. Luckily, Leia's problem was quickly and easily diagnosed. My Bengal, Loki, had been bullying her away from the litter boxes. We set up a nice little box for her in a quiet area of the house and she hasn't had any issues since. I really think she is enjoying the fact she gets her own powder room. But, there can be many reasons a kitty starts this type of behavior so I am going to go over the most common ones below.

Here are some of the basic reasons:

1. A recent litter brand change.
Cats are huge creatures of habit and often finicky when it comes to their poop dirt. If you recently changed their litter try going back to the old stuff.   2. The litter isn't deep enough.
Some cats love a lot of litter and are big diggers. If they don't have enough litter (an amount to their liking, not yours) k…

Why Does My Cat Hate My Significant Other?

If you're reading this then I am guessing you've come here because you have a very mad kitty. I am also going to guess said kitty doesn't like your significant other. Don't worry, it happens. Cats aren't like dogs. You can't just tempt them with a little piece of steak and throw a tennis ball to become friends. If you try that your cat is just going to give you the above look and walk away hell bent on destroying your new relationship. Never underestimate kitty, they're smarter than we think.

You might even have adopted a new cat that took to you easily, but just down right dislikes the other person in your life. That's okay. There's something about an immediate bond with a cat. If you get that special moment you're lucky. If your partner does not, maybe some of the following tips can help.

1. Feeding Time:
If you're the only one feeding kitty, start letting your partner prepare the cat's food and actually feed the meal. Kitty might not …
