Hello furbulous library guests 


Welcome to the Mewton-Clawson Library at BBHQ 

As mew can see, we've gone all Valentinesy on the blog.

Well in all honesty, we were getting a little fluffed off with the winter vibe and thought any excuse to decorate, so we hope mew like the lovey-dovey vibe! MOL

This week, after a little accident on my lovely grey blankys, I had to get the emergency beige blankys as a substitute while my grey ones are drying.

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

2. I can't stop _________.

3. I need to figure out _________ before _________.

4. I maybe not _________, but I do _________.

Here are the P.A.s answers:

1. I enjoy making lots of things, especially for the cats. Creating fun items for their crafting posts is so pawesome. The latest project which will be on the blog soon, threw a little hurdle at me the other day, but I've found a solution, so it's all ok now! LOL

2. I can't stop being creative, I think I would go quite mad if I couldn't make, sew or write stuff.

3. I need to figure out a new layout before I make some new raised beds for the veggies.

4. I may not be purrfect in a lot that I do, but I do try my best.

Book Reviews with Amber at The Mewton-Clawson Library #228 Merlin Fights a Ghost by Molly Fitz

Merlin Fights a Ghost

Merlin The Magical Fluff Book 2


Molly Fitz

 Here's a little snippet of the book blurb:      

It was hard enough serving as my witchy cat’s familiar when we only had to deal with threats we could see. Now he’s gotten himself into a bitter feud with a newly dispatched ghost, leaving me to wonder…

How in the heck are we supposed to defeat this thing?

I reviewed book one in the Merlin the Magical Fluff trilogy in December, here's the link if mew want to catch up.

This did come as a trilogy box set, so I listened to all three novels consequetively with no break. Book two continues right after book one finishes, so there's no dead space or time lag to catch up on, which I really liked. Though, book two could easily be be read as a stand alone novel too.

In this story, the characters are up against a ghostly foe, and it's up Merlin to save the day with his meowgical prowess with the help from Gracie and Luna. 

Merlin still has his catitude of superiority, although he is learning to be a little less abrasive! And as the ghostly goings-on begin to ramp up, the trio go on the defensive before things take a turn for the worse.

This a fun, paranormal, cat cozy mystery which straddles two worlds; our mundane one and the magical one where cats rule.
The plot is nicely paced, the characters develop well, and there are the ubiquitous red herrings to keep mew on your toes claws.

As I said in my first review, I felt the narrator wasn't quite right for this role, but that's not to say mew may pawsibly disagree with me. This however, didn't distract from my overall enjoyment of the novel and the world the author created. 

I really like where the story is headed and will share book three with mew soon.

  1. We're tired of all the Winter rain here too. Those were good fill-in ansers and a wonderful review sweet Amber. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

    1. We are so over winter, it just seems to be dragging on and on! Roll on Spring!

  2. Amber, I read your review...and these are audible books? Or can you get them in print as well? Ackshully, I need to go look it up. XX

    1. Hi Katie, it's in audio and paperback versions. If mew get the audio version from Audible, mew can get the 3 book box set for the the regular price of one book.

  3. Amber, at least that blanket is washable.
    And that is a lovely image of you, you cutie pie!

  4. That was a great review, Amber. Sorry you had an accident, but it does happen. The Valentines look is lovely and bright. I will be glad to see the back of winter too.

  5. Cool picture of you, Amber, and great review! Good fill-in answers. Winter is getting to me, too. Brrrr.

  6. Amber, you look just as beautiful on that blanky as you do on your grey one. Nice review, that looks like a good book. Thank you to the PA for participating in the fil-ins, great answers. I understand your need to create. And I think you are perfect- all your stories, crafts, gem posts and brain teasers are epic. XO

  7. Your decor is perfect, just right to brighten up the season.

    It's always important to have a creative outlet.

    Thanks for joining Feline Friday!
