Can't Wait Wednesday (253)


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.



WHY I CAN'T WAIT:  I don't really have a synopsis for this one yet.  You guys may remember how much I enjoyed What's Bred in the Bone, a sci-fi novel featuring my beloved canines.  If not, HERE is my review. I know the author planned to release the next one in the series in May, but not until I contacted her did I have any idea that she had a novella coming out by the end of the March.  Here is also a link to an article on Weird Sisters Publishing which came out on the blog detailing the cover process.  Make sure to check it out HERE.

CASSIUS'S PICK:



SYNOPSIS: Twelve-year-old Epic McDade isn't ready for middle school. He'd rather help out at his family's dog-friendly bed n' breakfast all summer, or return to his alternative elementary school in the fall, where learning feels safe. But change comes in all shapes and fur colors. When Carmelito, California is named America's #1 Dog-Friendly Town, all the top dogs and their owners pour into Epic's sleepy seaside neighborhood for a week of celebration.

The McDades are in dog heaven with all the new business until a famous dog's jewel-encrusted collar goes missing. Every guest is a suspect, and Epic will have to embrace new friends and new ideas to sniff out the culprit before the week is through. 

WHY CASS CAN'T WAIT: I noticed Mom has been reading some MG lately.  When I asked her about this, because yes, Mom and I talk, she said it was a great escape from the craziness going on in the world.  I can see Mom's anxiety creeping in some so my pick this week is all about making her feel better and who wouldn't feel great in a town filled with dogs???

WHAT BOOK CAN'T YOU WAIT ON THIS WEEK???

  1. I agree with MG being an escape! Some people read Romance or cozies when they want to decompress. I read Middle Grades. 📚✨

    Tell Cass his pick is going on my TBR. 👍✨

  20. I love it when a surprise book or novella in a series that I love is released. I agree with Cass that a book about a town filled with dogs sounds perfect.
