With Amber ~ The Self-Appointed Biblio-Kitty
Many happy greetings fellow biblio-cats
Oh boy am I happy, I bought 3 x box sets of books already and another one which I'm sharing today.
Mew have no idea how ecstatic I am to have unlimited credits at Audible, this means I can indulge as much as I like... hang on a sec.... wait there... I can hear someone shouting...
"What did mew just say P.A.?"
"Mew can have as many as mew like within reasonable limits!" The P.A. answered.
"What devilry is this?" I spluttered.
"No more than 75 books," The P.A. replied.
"What... mew're capping my limit?" I almost choked the wurds out.
"You had 56 last year alone," The P.A. explained. "That's fair, besides the spring and summer are coming and mew know Basil will be having an epically epic adventure again and 75 books a year equates to 1.4423 new books per week, I'm sure that's enough!"
"Hmmmmmm," I muttered. "This is true, our adventures do eat into my reading time, especially in the summer time too..." I paused and thought about it some more. "Ok, but if I do need more, like fur instance my fav authors release new books and then I find other books I'd like, would it be possible to have a 25 book contingency plan?"
The P.A. looked at me, eyes narrowed assessing my effury move as I casually moved next to the log basket so she couldn't see my grin, "OK you can have an extra 25 emergency credits, but no more, that is your limit!"
"YES!!!!" I hollered as the P.A. shook her head and left the room. "That equates to 1.9231 books a week, which means I get 0.4808 more books a week now... woo hoo!"
Don't mew love it when a plan comes together! MOL
And now I think we'll get to this weeks fab new novel that I bought the other day with one of my shiny new credits.
This week on book reviews with Amber, I'm sharing
Here's the book blurb courtesy of Amazon UK:
When the going gets tough...
Private investigator, Jill Gooder, has been hired to find a serial killer because, as usual, the police can't buy a clue. Jill, the not so proud owner of a crazy, one-eyed cat, probably can't expect too much help from her PA/Secretary, Mrs V, who spends all day knitting.
And just in case all of that wasn't bad enough, Jill's just about to discover she's a witch.
...break out the custard creams.
* * *
I know this probably seems a lot similar to last weeks book, with it's witchy vibe but believe me when I say this one is by far a more enjoyable/superior beast altogether.
Winky the cat talks fur a start, and though in this book his role isn't as large, I have it on excellent authority that as the series continues it does - so that's a five paw rating already!!!
There are some furry funny moments, it is very English and if mew don't know what a custard cream is - it is a delicious biscuit made fur dunking appurrently, I just asked the P.A. she knows all about them... appurrently - nuff said!
What I can say about this book without spoilerizing anything fur mew, is that it's my favourite book of this year thus far, and I'm about to start binge-listening to the next four in the series. There are in total 18 books, so that is definitely a huge plus fur me, I just have to wait fur them to be released on audible.
I think mew'll like this so much more than last weeks book, do it, it's great and I'm sure mew'll love it.
Paperback copy: 208 pages
I hope mew enjoy this book if mew do take the plunge and get it... and if mew've read it already, tell me did mew think?
Sadly it's time fur me to say BFN or bye-fur-now as mew know the drill, so many books, so little time and don't furget to stop by tomorrow fur Basil's Brain Training - all being well of course!
Happy reading or listening
