Title: Clowders by Vanessa Morgan
Synopsis: Clervaux, Luxembourg. This secluded, picturesque town in the middle of Europe is home to more cats than people. For years, tourists have flocked to this place – also known as “cat haven” – to meet the cats and buy cat-related souvenirs. When Aidan, Jess and their five-year-old daughter, Eleonore, move from America to Clervaux, it seems as if they’ve arrived in paradise. It soon becomes evident, though, that the inhabitants’ adoration of their cats is unhealthy. According to a local legend, each time a cat dies, nine human lives are taken as a punishment. To tourists, these tales are supernatural folklore, created to frighten children on cold winter nights. But for the inhabitants of Clervaux, the danger is horrifyingly real. Initially, Aidan and Jess regard this as local superstition, but when Jess runs over a cat after a night on the town, people start dying, one by one, and each time it happens, a clowder of cats can be seen roaming the premises. Are they falling victim to the collective paranoia infecting the entire town? Or is something unspeakably evil waiting for them?Their move to Europe may just have been the worst decision they ever made.
An interesting twist on a modern myth, Clowders will have you cautious of every cat you come across. Remember to treat them with respect…or else…

What is The Most Expensive Book You Own?
It’s probably not the most expensive, but for the size it is, I’d definitely say The Colorado Kid by Stephen King. It was SO hard to find in English, so for like a 100 page book, I paid almost £20 for it so I could finish my collection!
