Waiting on Wednesday (12)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is weekly meme hosted over at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming anticipated releases.  Here is what I am most waiting for this week:

This Side of Wild: Gary Paulsen
The Newbery Honor& winning author of Hatchet and Dogsong shares surprising true stories about his relationship with animals, highlighting their compassion, intellect, intuition, and sense of adventure.

Gary Paulsen is an adventurer who competed in two Iditarods, survived the Minnesota wilderness, and climbed the Bighorns. None of this would have been possible without his truest companion: his animals. Sled dogs rescued him in Alaska, a sickened poodle guarded his well-being, and a horse led him across a desert. Through his interactions with dogs, horses, birds, and more, Gary has been struck with the belief that animals know more than we may fathom.

His understanding and admiration of animals is well known, and in This Side of Wild, which has taken a lifetime to write, he proves the ways in which they have taught him to be a better person.

This releases September 29, 2015 and since it in involves the relationship between humans and animals, it seems like a perfect read for me.  I know it is a MG/YA read, but every once in a while, I enjoy picking one up.  What are you waiting for this week?



  1. It's not like what I usually read, but it sounds like a very interesting book. Hope you enjoy it when it comes out and thanks for stopping by my blog!

  2. This sounds pretty interesting but not like my kind of read.
