Hello gorgeous library guests and welcome to my private library.

Happy Friday effuryone and let me just say, thank cod it's Friday! MOL 

Amber the cat sitting in the doorway of her private library in mewton-clawson

What a week, the P.A. and I have been in my library most evenings as she suddenly decided that she wanted to reorganize her craft/art/sewing supplies which occupies the same space with her large table and myriad of shelves on the opposite side to my bookcases, and when I say OMC how much stuff has she got, it's insane!

And what started off a rather simple tidy-up has turned into an absolute marathon - I'm exhausted just watching her - and she's still nowhere near finished.

Though I must say it was rather offur due, as there was stuff bursting out of boxes effurywhere and even though the P.A. knew exactly where effurything was, it did need a big clean up.

I anticipate it'll sort of being finished next week and then she needs to find some extra storage for the crystal room which is next door to my library **BIG SIGH** it neffur ends.

And now I think it's time to share this weeks book as I need to go fur a nap! MOL

This week I'm sharing

The Diary of a Killer Cat

Here's a little snippet of the book blurb:

Poor Ellie is horrified when Tuffy drags a dead bird into the house. Then a mouse. But Tuffy can't understand what all the fuss is about.
Who on earth will be the next victim to arrive through the cat-flap?

Don't mew just love the cover, and doesn't it remind mew of one of The B Team? Not mentioning any names, FUDGE!!! MOL [Don't tell him I said that! MOL]

Although not a long book, so not a long review, it is furry funny and would make a truly excellent addition to anypurrdy's library. 

Anne Fine is a veteran writer, who pens stories fur all age groups, and has had a truly illustrious writing career with so signs of slowing up, thank goodness.

The Diary of a Killer Cat is written from Tuffy's point of view and is an absolute riot, funny, well written and most enjoyable fur all ages.

If mew love cats mew'll love this, and I'm still chuckling right now at some of Tuffy's antics and yes, I can totally relate! MOL

If mew want a quick, fun read, get this as it's guaranteed to bring a smile to your day!
