Hello gorgeous library guests 


Welcome to the Mewton-Clawson Library at BBHQ 

Furstly, sorry I'm a little late posting today; blogger was being most uncooperative yesterday and wouldn't let me upload any photos.

Thank mew for joining me in the stacks today and my last book review of the current season. 

Now don't panic. I will be back in September as usual, and I'll be spending my summer jolly's relaxing, reclining and finding more wunderpurr books to share with mew when I return. Plus, the library needs a bit of spring clean, so I'll be overseeing young Melvyn as he does all the wurk! MOL

Anyhoo, before we get to the review, can mew believe the nerve of some cats?

Smooch was banned from the library last year aftur the stink-bomb incident and had his library card revoked indefinitely, so mew can imagine my utter horror when I ambled between the stacks and found him purrusing the ancient Egypt shelf.

"What are mew doing?" I asked sniffily.

"Oh hey Amber, I wanted to find out about cats being worshipped as gods, as I heard a rumour on the BBHQ Radio station, Epically Epic Tunes this morning that cats were revered in ancient times, and I had an idea about resurrecting this pawesome philosophy, with me as the cult leader!" Smooch smirked. 



Today, as it's the last Friyay of the month, we're also joining in the furrbulous...

So do drop by the marvellous Mudpie's blog at to join in.

Pet Photo Fails - Melvyn and Fudge ©BionicBasil®

And today's photo fail is courtesy of Melvyn and Fudge; Melvyn wasn't sharing his snuggle mat with anypurrdy, and he made his feelings quite clear, as mew can see much to Fudge's chagrin! MOL

Today the P.A. is also joining in Friday Fill-ins Blog Hop with the pawesome 15 & Meowing and Four-Legged Furballs.
1. I wish _________ were as _________ as _________.

2. My plans this weekend include _________ and _________.

3. It's hard to believe that _________.

4. I need _________ in order to _________.

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

1. I wish I were as full of energy as I used to be. Sadly, my apathy and tiredness seems to be winning.

2. My plans this weekend include measuring up for a new deck and doing a lot of weeding, plus hopefully planting some of the flowers I've been growing, as they're desperate to get into the soil.

3. It's hard to believe that we've been living in the covid-world for over a year now.

4. I need to be in the right frame of mind in order to write. And this doesn't happen very often; it's fits and starts.

#Help: My Cat's a Vlogging Superstar!


Rae Earl

       Here's a little snippet of the book blurb:      

A hilarious story about two best friends, a cat and a vlog gone wrong from the author of TV's My Mad Fat Diary, perfect for fans of Holly Smale, Cathy Cassidy and Zoella. Everyone relies on Millie Porter for good advice – her friends, family, even her cat. So she decides to start a vlog with her best friend Lauren, where they will help people with the things that really matter: parents, cats, make-up and boys.

Now at furst, I thought this was going to be one of those funny little anecdote books, with pictures and quips and bucket loads of hashtags, though it turns out, it's not! 

What it is; is a funny tale written in the furst purrson about Millie, who is the go-to girl for anyone that needs advice; she has a vlog with her BF and is adamant that it will be a success, and what starts off as make-up tutorials ends up with her female cat who happens to be called Dave actually taking centre stage and stealing the limelight.

It's MOL in places, and obviously the above is as much of a spoiler as I can give, as mew know my rules.

Did I enjoy it being a crotchety old cat, and would I recommend it to mew? Yes I did, and yes I would. If mew're looking for a fun and amewsing read for the summer jollys, this is a great one to add to your list, and it would be a great gift for any age especially the cat-loving community.

I really hope mew enjoy the book as much as I did if mew read it.

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 I'll see mew in the Autumn or Fall when I'm back with oodles of ameowzing new reads and don't furget that all my previous reviews can be found on my Book Review page if mew are looking for some summer inspiration.

Until next time...

Keep calm and read more books

  1. That Smooch, what a heathen! Snooping around your library after you banned him! All though, a Smooch led cult does sound interesting. I look forward to your return in the autumn. I'm sure Melvyn will have the library sparkling clean for you too.

  2. Love your fill-ins and yes for over a year things have been upside down. I'm hoping for some normal soon. Whatever normal will be.

    Love all the kitties and I don't seen any fails. Kitties are royalty.

    Have a purrfect day and weekend. Scritches all around and my best to your wonderful mom. ♥

  3. Thanks for the book review, Amber!
    I've planted two lots of new items in the last two weeks, and pick up more next weekend!
    Lucky for us, we are getting buckets of rain; we were very dry, almost drought-like before.

  4. Those were fun fails and good answers too. Ya done a good review too Melvyn. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  5. Another good review, Amber. I hope Melvyn does a good job with the spring clean.

  6. I am very sad that you won't be reviewing all summer. :( I hope you will do a selfie or 2 during that time. That looks like a great read. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers from the PA. I know what she means about needing to be in the right frame of mind to write. I hope she gets all her planting done over the weekend. XO

  7. I have a lot of planting to get done too..but when I am not working, it seems I find tons of other things to do, LOL!

    Smooch...what a rascal!
    Those were fun-fails!

    See ya in September, Amber:)

  8. Amber we are going to miss you over the summer but expect some really excellent reviews when you come back. This book looks like fun and we will look it up. Great fill ins and very funny Photo Fail! Love you Cat and Mom too

  9. First of all - your library is GORGEOUS!!!! I love a nice library. I'm a librarian at a primary school in SA and I try to make it as nice as possible.

    I love your photo fail and don't see it as a blooper at all! That's some attitude and we love it!

    Have a lovely break and we'll see you in September!

  10. Thank you for sharing your library with us, Amber! Happy summer reading to you! And thank you for joining in on the Friendly Fill-Ins. I know what you mean with #4. I'm that way with most of my creative endeavors. I have to be in the right mood to draw, to write, etc. Sometimes I just have to force myself, but those results are never as good when I'm just naturally in the right frame of mind for it. Purrs!
