    One thought on “Kitty Takes a Holiday”

    1. Definitely (finally) liking this series more. I can't help but be sad at some of the events that took place in this and sad that some relationships didn't happen but I am happy at the ones that did. Looking forward to continuing the series.

    2. This review is probably going to sound really odd because I totally feel like I just read 2 books in 1. The first part of this book was all about Cormac bringing Ben hurt and in trouble to Kitty's cabin (in which she is playing hide from the world as an aftermath from the events in book 2). This part of the books was great. Kitty is being threatened with some form of blood magic and something seems to be stalking them in the woods surrounding her cabin. Kitty was strong, Cormac emotional, and Be [...]

    3. This series is unlike most of the genre: it's about how Kitty grows internally, not about her powers, her worldly power, or her exploits. The first book has her going from bottom beta to independent, getting even me to understand why she's happy as the (literal) bottom dog at first. the second is about her changing concept of community, pack, and pack responsibility.This book is about her accepting responsibility. Not responsibility for her actions--she isn't "owning up," she's accepting respons [...]

    4. Oh how I loved Kitty, Ben and Cormac in this book! It's my favourite so far, because it takes a different turn from the first 2 books. Kitty's basically on a break from her radio show to recover from the developments of the past 2 books, starting her own radio show, being caught on TV, coming out as a werewolf. Resulting in her being in a cabin in the middle of nowhere, tuning into her competition's radio show and somehow finding solstice in trying to sabotage it every week. When Cormac and Ben [...]

    5. I find that the Kitty series by Carrie Vaughn is a nice little distraction. While the series is not the best UF series out there, I do find that each book has been consistent for me. Kitty’s world includes werewolves, vampires, and other paranormal creatures. I loved how the Native American skin walkers were incorporated into this book.It’s difficult to review this book without giving away a major spoiler, but let’s just say that Kitty spends her time in this book helping out her friends. [...]

    6. I brought the first three Kitty books hoping for a truly interesting read. I’ve never been the biggest of werewolf fans – I like them, but I do not love them in the way I love other supernatural creatures – yet I was hoping this series would turn me around. It was such a promising idea. It was such an interesting idea. A radio host of a supernatural chat show who just so happens to be a werewolf – colour me interested.Unfortunately, the story failed to pull me in the way I had hope it wo [...]

    7. Needing a break after the cataclysmic events of KITTY GOES TO WASHINGTON, Kitty has retreated to a wilderness cabin with a book contract, leaving her radio show in repeats while she listens to a show by a wannabe and grinding her teeth. She doesn't know what she wants to do. When someone local--she thinks--begins to place curse signs on her cabin, she learns that local law enforcement is not inclined to help, unless she asks them to help her pack. Then Cormac arrives with a badly hurt Ben, and e [...]

    8. This book ruined the Kitty Norville series for me. It gets off to an OK start. Kitty has locked herself away in a cottage, basically in the middle of nowhere, to help heal and cope with what happened to her at the end of "Kitty Goes to Washington." Kitty comes off a bit weak and even immature at moments in this book. Her calling in the other supernatural talk show under false names, to try and rile up or shake up the DJ. I just couldn't believe this was the same character. You are the girl who s [...]

    9. I'm really starting to like this series. Once I got past the boring title, I enjoyed the well-written character development between Kitty and her three-person quasi-pack. Vaughn has a quick, dialogue-heavy writing style that I'm appreciating more and more in authors and has the added bonus of making novels quick to read, even for notoriously-slow me. I polished this one off during a plane ride.Cormac is slowly becoming my new favorite novel hero, though I'm kinda disappointed that he's not a wer [...]

    10. Originally posted to The Book Bundle - if you like my review, please consider popping over there for a look :-)Book 3 in the series, so beware spoilers for 1 & 2!My thoughts: I'm not really sure how I feel about this book. I read it all in one sitting, starting at about 11pm with the intention of reading a couple of chapters, and stopping somewhere between 1 and 2 am. Normally, reading a book this quickly would be a sign that I really enjoyed it, but there are a lot of things about it that a [...]

    11. With a book to write, Kitty takes some time off from her day job and all the people who want to kill her and moves into a small rental cabin in a rural town. But things never go smoothly for her and she soon discovers someone is using blood magic to curse her. Then Cormac arrives in the middle of the night with Ben who has been attacked and infected by a werewolf and what was supposed to be a holiday goes from bad to worse. Kitty Takes a Holiday is good fun for lovers of werewolves, witches and [...]

    12. (audio version) Things change, Kitty's life changes in a blink of the eye. She is alone with her wolf and herself, avoiding reality. She rents a place outside of a small town where the residents don't seem too happy having the infamous werewolf about. Dead, bloody warnings start showing up then things get worse. Cormack the werewolf hunter drives down her road. This visit changes everything for one of them.I really loved the twist and turns for the characters in this book. Ms. Vaughn gave them a [...]

    13. Let me start off by saying, no summer lite and fluffy list would be complete without at least one book about my favorite talk Dj turned werewolf, Kitty Norville. This is the 3rd book in the series. and It was just ok for me. These novels are best when they revolve around her radio talk show. I just did not find this storyline as interesting this time.Still and all, I love this series and am going to try to squeeze in at least one more book this summer.

    14. Reviewed by: Rabid Reads.Every hard hitting Urban Fantasy heroine deserves some down time, but Norville hasn’t exactly done enough to warrant an extended stay at a mountain cabin in my opinion, and she definitely hasn’t reached memoirs status yet. KITTY TAKES A HOLIDAY is only installment #3 after all. Carrie Vaughn attempted to fast track this series, and the later chapters came close to accomplishing that; however the fact remains that too much of this audiobook was about the protagonist t [...]

    15. The Kitty series is great beach reading. This isn't a bad thing, for each book so far has been quite enjoyable.Vaughn deserves credit for this book. In the first two books, the radio show formed some of the best parts. Here, Kitty has taken a break from her radio show. It's risky to not fully use the gimmick that first sold the books, but Vaughn pulls it off well. I loved the radio bits in the first two books, and surprisedly, I didn't miss it here because of how tight and quick the plot works. [...]

    16. This is how I picture Kitty looking like. The chick from Blood and Chocolate. Ironic right? I think she'd play a great Kitty.

    17. I feel like this series has potential, but the writer needs a little polishing. The romance seems forced. I got no chemistry. The plot is slow. But for some reason I'm not ready to give up just yet. I've read worse. Maybe I'm in a charitable mood.

    18. Since Kitty really isn't used to being the center of attention, the nasty events of the previous book have really damaged her confidence. She's snuck away to a remote location to try and escape her new found celebrity (and not in a good way) status. Of course things couldn't be easy for her, proven when Cormac shows up with her a changed Ben, her lawyer in tow. To make matters worse, someone keeps leaving blood spells around her cabin in apparent threat. Not to mention the redeyed creature deter [...]

    19. Book 3 in Carrie Vaughn's Kitty Norville series is the best yet. Kitty Takes a Holiday details Kitty's efforts to get away from it all after her kidnapping at the end of Kitty Goes to Washington. She's decided to rent a cabin in the woods and write her memoirs. Only it's not going so well. She starts getting harassed People leaving dead animals on her porch and whatnot. But things only get worse when werewolf hunter Cormac shows up with lawyer Ben, who has been bitten and has contracted lycanthr [...]

    20. 4 stars**warning, I'm letting something slip in this review that would be considered a spoiler**This was a very good story and addition to the series. I'm still loving Kitty as the heroine. After what happened to her in the previous book, Kitty decides to take some time off from the show and write a book. She rented a cabin in a small town so she could focus on her work but instead she just found herself drifting and doubting her ability to get back what she had lost. Ben had come to the area to [...]

    21. I don't know how I'm feeling about this installment into the Kitty Norville series. There was a lot of emotional melancholy felt through all the characters in the book and also a surprising end to a potential love interest while an unexpected love relationship seems to have taken shape for our heroine.Kitty decided she needed a break after the events over the past year and her "unveiling" on live TV after being kidnapped. She retreats to a mountain cabin where she decides to write her memoir and [...]

    22. This is my favourite book of the three so far. The story was very different in feel to the first two with the new setting of Kitty's holiday house, the strong presence of both Ben and Cormac, and the very surprising plot developments that occurred!Also I enjoyed the mystery element over the more political plot of the last book. All in all, a much more satisfying read in terms of emotional connection and character development.Kitty has basically decided to hide herself away for a month or so to g [...]

    23. Read the first book in this series back in 2006, the second back in 2008. Not exactly marathon reading. Winning the 8th book in the series through made me go back and start catching up on the series. I'm glad I am.I enjoyed this third book more than the first two. I know initially I was offput by the Anita/Edward vibe between Kitty and Cormac, but that has lessened as the series progressed. Although Cormac is still the non-preternatural person on the outside. Spoilers.Ben, Kitty's lawyer, turns [...]

    24. I keep thinking I know would to expect from this series, but so far every book has been a game changer. Not that I'm complaining, it definitely keeps things interesting.(view spoiler)[I did not see the whole thing with Ben coming. I always thought it would be Cormac/Kitty. To be honest, I was less than thrilled when Ben and Kitty got together at first. Not because I don't like Ben, he's been one of my favorite characters from the start, but I just like Cormac a little bit more. That's just my lu [...]

    25. 3.5 stars is what I give this 3rd book in the series. But on this review, I'm going to have to keep it 3 stars--just didn't have enough pizzazz for 4 stars. I am intrigued with the series, I just feel that it needs either more romance or more adventure & grit. It's a little light in both areas IMO. I like the new love triangle created by the unfortunate circumstance Ben has found himself in as a bitten werewolf--the triangle participants are Ben, kitty the werewolf and Cormac, big, bad werew [...]

    26. Третата книга – Kitty Takes a Holiday започва с оттеглянето на Кити в някаква планинска хижа, където уж пише книга по време на отпуската си. Казвам „уж”, защото явно вдъхновението я е оставило. Спокойствието й не трае дълго – тя намира в двора си изкормени зайци и кръстове от бодлив [...]

    27. Like the previous two Kitty books, this was just good enough to keep me more or less interested in the characters and to want to read the next one. eventually, no big hurry. Not as inventive as some other urban fantasy/paranormal romance books but neither is it a total dud (and it doesn't focus too much on endless boring sex or how goshdarn purty all the boys are). Like many others in this little subgenre the book felt very brief, like the author could have combined the plots of two of her novel [...]

    28. Once more, the story here is self-contained and does not rely on the first two to be enjoyed, but I would still recommened reading them in order because there are some things in this one that would be spoilers when going back to the others. In fact, there isn't a lot I can discuss of the plot of this one without spoilers. Let's just say that it was very engrossing and exciting to read, probably the best in the series so far.It was great to see Kitty in southern Colorado. I actually know where Wa [...]

    29. This series is getting much better. Kitty ends up taking some time off to write her memoir and is finding inspiration hard to come by. Cormack comes one night to drop off Ben who has been bit by a werewolf and they can already tell he is going to change. Ben and Cormack made a teenage pledge to kill the other if they become infected. Cormack wants to see if Kitty can help him get through it. At the same time she's being harassed by some unknown person who is trying to scare her out of town. The [...]
