Can't Wait Wednesday (103) - "Booker T In The House!"

Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings to spotlight highly anticipated books.  It is based on the Waiting on Wednesday meme which used to be hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. 

Hello fellow bloggers.  Mom has given me free reign of the blog yet again so I wanted to share some of my latest finds with you guys.  Cass and I are doing well and with Spring in the air, we are enjoying the extra walks and time outside with the folks.  Maybe Mom will practice with her new camera again so I can have some new pics of us to share soon.

I am VERY photogenic outdoors!  On with the books.



FROM GOODREADS:
New York Times bestselling author Jenn McKinlay returns to Bluff Point, Maine, where one woman finds love with the help of an adorable golden retriever.

LOVE IS A FOUR-LEGGED WORD.

Carly DeCusati returned home to Bluff Point, Maine, with her tail between her legs. But she’s determined to get her life back on track—and that means finding new homes for the elderly golden retriever and overly talkative parrot she inherited before her old life fell apart.

Enter physical therapist and hot one-night stand James Sinclair. James doesn’t care that Carly doesn’t do relationships. He is determined to win her heart, promising to help her with the pets if she’ll just give him the time of day.

Carly agrees to date the irresistible James, and, for the first time in years, she’s dreaming of a happily ever after. But James has secrets, and if he can’t open up to Carly, their future could go to the dogs...



FROM GOODREADS: 
From W. Bruce Cameron, the author of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling novel A Dog's Purpose, which is now a major motion picture!

Lucas Ray is shocked when an adorable puppy jumps out of an abandoned building and into his arms. Though the apartment he shares with his mother, a disabled veteran, doesn't allow dogs, Lucas can't resist taking Bella home.

Bella is inexplicably drawn to Lucas, even if she doesn't understand the necessity of games like No Barks. As it becomes more difficult to hide her from the neighbors, Lucas begins to sneak Bella into the VA where he works. There, Bella brings joy and comfort where it is needed most.

After Bella is picked up by Animal Control because pit bulls are banned in Denver, Lucas has no choice but to send her to a foster home until he can figure out what to do. But Bella, distraught at the separation, doesn't plan to wait. With four hundred miles of dangerous Colorado wilderness between her and her person, Bella sets off on a seemingly impossible and completely unforgettable adventure home.

A classic story of unwavering loyalty and incredible devotion, A Dog's Way Home is a beautifully told, charming tale that explores the unbreakable bond between us and our pets. This fantastic and exhilarating journey of the heart is in the same tradition as the beloved bestseller, A Dog's Purpose.


WHY BOOKER T CAN'T WAIT:  So I know Mom just read and reviewed "About a Dog" and I heard her mention she is thrilled the next one is coming out this year.  She doesn't read  lot of romance but I can tell ya, when she was reading the first in this series, that dog Tulip really pulled her heartstrings because she was often sitting down Paul Anka (Mom's Kindle) and giving us lots of hugs and kisses and then going back to reading.

I also know she has a lot of books by Bruce W. Cameron so I'm assuming she'll want this one too.  She's read his mystery series but she's always saying this series seems like it will be sad.  I know there's a movie coming out to rent soon based on one and she's always laughing when she sees the ad and that goofy dog introduces himself and says "I'm Bailey Bailey Bailey."  Heck, I can say my name three times and I don't think she would laugh!

So what books can't you guys wait for this week?  For now, I'm Booker T, signing out! (I always wanted to say that).

  1. Good to see you Booker T! I'm afraid I can't read doggy stories that get sad...I'm an emotional wimp! Both books sound like things your mum would want to read so I hope she enjoys them. You and Cass have some fun and enjoy some better weather!

    1. They have been enjoying it as much as possible. I don't like sad books much but every once in a while is OK.

  2. OMG BELLA! There's was a story in the news here earlier this week about a retriever that was returned to her family four years after running away. The vets think she survived on pineapple for a time! (here's mine: http://editingeverything.com/blog/2017/04/26/cant-wait-waiting-wednesday-marriage-thousand-lies/

    1. Pineapple - who would have thought! I'm thrilled for her family and can you imagine that reunion?

  3. I am like Chuckles. Dog books have a high chance of making me cry so I avoid them. I was trapped by Where the Red Fern Grows, never again!

    1. Never read it. Or Old Yeller. I know they are classics but I already know how sad they are so I've skipped them.

  4. The first one sounds like fun, but the second book would be too much for me. I can't take dogs in danger or separated from their owners, even if I know there's a happy ending.

    1. I think because it's a pitbull it will be interesting to see how the author advocates for them. You know, it just hit me - that's not a pitbull on the cover - that's one of my book peeves!

  6. Hope your Mom enjoys the picks! The W. Bruce Cameron book sounds like it would tear me up, so not for me. Thanks for sharing your picks.

  7. Love the title/sound of the first one. Not too sure about the 2nd one... I know folks love those Cameron books but I've never read one. They looked potentially "tear-jerker-y" to me, and I don't like tear-jerker!

  8. Hi Booker T! These sound right up your mama's alley! Hope she enjoys them. :)

  9. Great choices this week! I'm not big on tear jerker type of books with any animal in danger though.

  11. Every time I come to your blog it makes me want to get a puppy so badly. I'm finally in a place to get one of my own just waiting for the right fur ball. But on a book note these look cure as always I hope you enjoy!

  15. I love stories about dogs, except they almost always have the dog die at the end which causes me to cry. Good picks!

  16. Those covers are really cute, Booker T.!! And the dog on the second one is very good-looking! Like you, right? Now you can walk all around the house with a swelled head....lol.

    The first book sounds like a great romance! You sly boy! I didn't know you were such a romantic at heart! :) :)

    The second book sounds like it will tug at my heart strings.... Well, the story is definitely a WONDERFUL one, though!

    Sure hope you and your mom enjoy these! Have a TERRIFIC doggie day!! Please thank her for dropping by and commenting on my own CWW post!! WOOF, WOOF!!! HUGS FOR YOU & MOM!! <3 <3 :) :)

    1. Booker T already has a big head so don't worry - you didn't create a monster. He's been a daddy's boy and GOLDEN since he was born. Never got in trouble for anything. I always joke that he has a halo no one but dad can see (although he is pretty perfect).

  17. hummmm... I thought you were grounded Booker T! Well... we have all sneak out our moms ;-) Glad to see you again. These stories sound very cute. I bet your mom will love them :)
