The Analytical Mind

Home of the multi-tiered and categorically diverse Cat Ellington book analysis collection, Reviews by Cat Ellington, founded on this date, is a sophisticated literature blog that was specifically designed to produce the expansive assemblage of my personally constructed book reviews.

Thirty-eight years in the making, the entire body of my literary analysis all began with my very first written review of Judy Blume’s now world famous YA opus, Tiger Eyes. And to date, the said review, along with hundreds of others which would succeed it, are now published for public viewing here at Reviews by Cat Ellington, respectively.

In addition to the multitude of book reviews, this location will also feature a few of my book clubs and other third party site links that source my public literature (in poetry), my public quotes, and the famous databases where my public industry credentials and contributions are exhibited, both professionally and in general profile.

First Anniversary RCE

Greetings, my dearest men and women! It is with absolute excitement that I present this succeeding post in honor of Reviews by Cat Ellington’s first annual celebration! Exactly one calendar year ago today, I established this personal online journal to accommodate my sizable collection of personally penned literary reviews. And I am so proud—so humbly proud—to say that in the first year I published 235 literary compositions, in the form of analyses, to the blog’s book-enthused layout.

Though a considerable number of my analytical compositions which critique novels of both fiction and nonfiction were structured in longhand decades before there had been any such thing as the Internet, much less social cataloging sites that cater to the literary arts community, a vast number of the same were constructed, electronically, over the last five years. And of this feat, I am tremendously proud.

I wish to thank all of you who have taken the time to email me your personal compliments and other fine appraisals. And to all of those authors who have spoken many heartfelt words of tribute and admiration in honor of my analyses, I say, ‘Right back atcha!’ Because all of you have yourselves been given great wisdom from the Almighty Creator above to do what is significantly pleasing in the incontestable craft of writing. Nothing brings me so much joy on this Earth—aside from my loved ones—as the written word. And as long as there is wisdom bestowed upon me, and I’ve a blank page before me with a pen in my hand—or keys at my fingertips—I will enthusiastically compose a whirlwind of words; for such doing is my unequivocal passion.

Thank you, my beloved fellow readers and, ahem, scribblers.
