Hello gorgeous library guests and welcome to my private library.

Now mew may be wondering what I'm doing peering under the rug this morning!

Well we've had some torrential rain the last few days and the house has had an influx of spiders, and there's one hiding out under the rug, and I'm just waiting for his to come out so I can ask him:

How long is he planning on staying?

Is he going to be paying rent? [Easy cash for books]

Did he invite any other furmily memfurs to join him?

And if so, how many can we expect?

Do they need separate rooms?

And are there any special dietary requirements needed? etc... etc... etc...

I've been waiting an hour now and still haven't got any answers, seriously I'm going to evict him to the summerhouse post-haste if I don't get any cash soon!

Anyhoo enough of spiders, today is my second to last post which makes me sad, but then I do need a vay-cay or stay-cay as it's really a high-pressure gig running a library, but neffur fear I plan on spending my time off acquiring lots of new books to share with mew later in the year.  Parsley has already taken even more extreme measures in hiding his credit card from me, but as The Borg say, Resistance is futile! MOL MOL

Poor Parsley!!! Maybe I should set up a GoFundMe for him?

This week we're also joining in Friday Fill-ins with the pawesome 15 & Meowing and Four-Legged Furballs.

1. __________________ motivates me to __________________.
2. I put salt on _________________.
3. When it comes to _________, I don’t cut corners.
4. Never forget _________.

The P.A.'s answers are...

1. Improving things motivates me to do more and try harder.
2. I put salt on chips, the ones from the fish and chip shop. I cook with salt, and I also use it to make body-scrubs with essential oils. And it has been known on occasion to be used across doorways to keep away malevolence.
3. When it comes to safety whether, at work, home, or the cats, I don’t cut corners.
4. Never forget the sacrifices of our grandparents - my generation/age-group - made fighting two world wars.

And now I think it's time to share this weeks book.

Mr. Waffles Loves Design


Lisa S. Roberts

Here's The Book Blurb:      

When noted design collector and published author Lisa S. Roberts discovered her new shelter cat climbing, jumping, rubbing and sleeping on her contemporary furniture and products, rather than freaking out, she began snapping photos. This became the inspiration for this whimsical and lavishly illustrated book. Mr. Waffles, a sleek black Burmese cat, offsets the bright colorful designs by world-famous architects and designers. Each spread includes original photography of cat and design, a brief informative description, and a humorous observation or comment by critic Mr. Waffles.


**Furstly I have to let mew all know that I was given a free copy of this book in e-format in exchange for a fair review**

Mr. Waffles is a furry handsome house panther who has a penchant for design and loves investigating, trying, clawing and examining all the cool stuff in his staffs' house.

This is a collection of gorgeous pictures featuring Mr. Waffles taking his duties furry seriously as he gets up close and purrsonal with some of the coolest furniture, art and home accessories available.

In fact, I think I should say: Kool Stuff For Kool Kats

My absolute favourite picture is of Mr. Waffles sitting proudly atop a spiral bookcase which resembles a shell-shape; the book is worth getting just for one picture that in my humble opinion! MOL

There are some many amazing and clever designs throughout the book whether furniture, art or lighting which are made even better by Mr. Waffles presence. If mew love design and cats this is definitely for mew, as it's a really beautiful book.

I loved admiring all the lovely things, so if mew're a fan of supurr kool stuff and even cooler kats, I'd recommend this 100%. It would make a purrfect gift too.

Many thanks to Mr. Waffles for letting me review his book, and if mew're on Instagram mew can follow Mr. Waffles by clicking: @mrwaffleslovesdesign.

And don't furget that all my previous reviews can be found on my Book Review page.

Until next time

Keep calm and read on

  1. What a great review, Amber! We just followed Mr. Waffles!

  2. Great review as always, Amber.

    I love your fill-ins and I see a theme today. All the folks that are owned by cats never cut corners. As it should be.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. My best to your mom. ♥

  3. The Hubby swears that I LURV pickles just because of the salt!
    And a good salt scrub sounds wonderful to me right now!

  5. I hope those spiders start paying you. If not, at least they will kill any other bugs so you won't have to and will give you more reading time. :) Thanks to your PA for joining in the fill-ins, great answers. I need to try salting doorways too. I am definitely going to read that book. I am depressed you are taking a vacation though Amber- make it a quick one please. XO

  6. That sounds like a fun book. You should read it to your spider pals sweet Amber!

  7. You have to watch those spiders Amber. Once one moves in they all arrive en masse!
    That was a great review of the book.

  8. We have a copy of this book to review too! It's lovely and so cleverly done.

  9. Pawppy had a cat when he was a wee one, called Waffles!!

    *She* giggled at #3, remembering the falling through the ceiling episode...though THAT was nothing to giggle about.

    Spiders?? No thank you! Give me a snake instead, MOL! Really, for sure!

  10. Great review Amber. Looks like a good read.
    We don't like Spiders or Snakes.
