7 YA Reads as Adorable Pusheen GIFs (You're Welcome)

I love cats and I’m not ashamed to admit it. Anyone who follows me on Twitter has been subjected to ALL the pictures of my furry little bestie.


(Pretty cute, huh?)

Thankfully, the internet as an entity shares my enthusiasm for whisker-faced purr-y demons like the one pictured above. One of my favorite meme characters is Pusheen, a chubby little gray tabby created by Claire Belton and Andrew Duff for their Everyday Cute webcomic. I love her so much, I thought it would be fun to pair Pusheen GIFs with a matching YA read. (Yes, I’m a real-life adult professional, why do you ask?)

Who’s cuter: Pusheen in a makeshift cape, or the baby-cinnamon-roll love interest found in TSaM? It’s a really close call…
