Hello fabulous library guests 


Welcome to the Mewton-Clawson Library at BBHQ 

Thank mew for joining me today and this week as it was a little warmer I've been spending my mornings in the catservatory with my stuffed pal Ratty.

Amber's Book Reviews #213 What Are We Reading This Week ©BionicBasil®  Amber Relaxing in the Catservatory with Ratty

Ratty is really great company, conversations are so easy with him as he agrees with everything I say, and to be honest I really like that I get to do all the talking and impart my epic knowledge and wisdom to somepawdy who really appreciates it!

And I've just remembered it's my 20th birthday on Monday, so I do hope mew can all come to my pawty. Pandora and I are really excited as we've got a new location this year and it will kick off a week-long celebration of all things Halloween at BBHQ, and mew know how much we love Halloween.

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

1. Every October, I __________________.

2. If I were going to a costume party, I would go as ______________________.

3. _________ is my favorite scary story.

4. I would _________ if there were a zombie apocalypse.

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

1. Every October, I say I'm going to get the garden ready for winter, and the most I do is get all the leaves up, and end up doing more in November.

2. If I were going to a costume party, I would go as cat woman.

3. _________ is my favorite scary story. I don't really have any favourites in this genre. I used to read James Herbert when I was younger, and I can still remember reading the last line of The Rats, yep, nasty. And let's not talk about The Fog! 

4. I would head into the BBHQ bunker and batten down the hatches if there were a zombie apocalypse. I really wish I had The B Teams bunker for real, if I'm ever fortunate enough to have the money, I would like to build a bunker, it's been on my to-do list for decades!

Purr-fect Potions

A Nine Lives Magic Mystery

Danielle Garrett

       Here's a little snippet of the book blurb:      

After unearthing Aunt Lavender’s secret, we may finally know why she was abducted. Unfortunately, it also means the stakes are higher than ever.

We’re making headway, but we need help to navigate the elusive world of magical treasure hunting. So, when famed adventurer Tabitha Blake arrives in Winterspell, offering to help, I jump at the chance to work with her.

Today as promised, I'm sharing book #4 in the Nine Lives Magic Mystery series, and if mew missed the reviews for books one, two and three click the links below.

Trouble in paradise? Poor Cora discovers that her boyfriend's mother isn't a fan and this causes a few issues in her relationship with Clint. There is another bombshell which dampens things even more, however, I'm not going to spoilerize any further on that matter.

Selene's cattitude is still ratcheted up to ten as the series continues, but there is a deep revelation about Selene's past and why she can be so snotty. 

 They are also joined by a famous adventurer Tabitha Blake who offers her services for free to assist in the search for Aunt Lavender, but all is not as it seems, or is it? 

As with the previous books, the pacing is spot on, and there's plenty of twists and turns in the plot to keep mew guessing who's good and who's got an agenda all of their own.

I did see a couple of reviews on Amazon where readers said they felt the author is stringing out the series and after four books there's still no real conclusion. But isn't that idea of a series, and it'll be concluded when the author decides?

Anyhoo I'm really enjoying this series, and if mew remember in review 2, link above, I said that the 5th instalment was being released on the 16th of October, well it hasn't been released yet, it's now saying the 31st of October, and it will be available with Kindle Unlimited it mew have that. 

A Top Paw Read or Listen.
