Waiting on Wednesday (80) - Booker T Signing On!!!

"Waiting on" Wednesday" is weekly meme hosted over at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming anticipated releases.  

Mom's out of town today so you know what that means, I am assuming my duty as co-blogger and taking over! I have chosen a book to share today which I know my Mom will love and which I think other dog lovers might as well.

FROM GOODREADS: The playful, epic adventure of a 160-pound English Mastiff and the twentysomething girl who grew up alongside her—Marley & Me for a whole new generation.

Lauren Watt took her 160-pound English Mastiff to college—so of course after graduation, Gizelle followed Lauren to her first, tiny apartment in New York. Because Gizelle wasn’t just a dog; she was a roommate, sister, confidante, dining companion, and everything in between.

Together, Gizelle and Lauren went through boyfriends, first jobs, a mother’s struggle with addiction, and the ups and downs of becoming an adult in the big city. But when Gizelle got sick and Lauren realized her best friend might not be such a constant after all, she designed an epic bucket list to make the absolute most of the time they had left.

Bursting with charm, this unique, coming-of-age story of a girl making her way through life is a testament to the special way pets inspire us to live better, love better, and appreciate the simple pleasures. Gizelle’s Bucket List is the humorous, poignant lesson our pets teach us: to embrace adventure, love unconditionally, and grow into the people we want to be.

WHY I'M WAITING:  Since Cassius weighs 106 pound and I weigh 108, I think we qualify as big dogs!  I can't wait to see what we have in common with Gizelle.

So what are you waiting for this week? 


  1. OMG, how wonderful is that cover? I want to hug that doggie silly! The story sounds wonderful and heartbreaking all at once. SNIFFLES.

  3. This sounds wonderful, but I agree with Stormi, sad! I may have to break down and read it:-)
