"Time passes. Even when it seems impossible. Even when each tick of the second hand aches like the pulse of blood behind a bruise. It passes unevenly, in strange lurches and dragging lulls, but pass it does. Even for me."— Stephenie Meyer
1. Pick any book released more than 5 years ago. Adult, YA, Children’s; doesn’t matter. Any great book will do.
2. Write up a short summary of the book (include the title, author, and cover art) and an explanation of why you love it. Make sure to link back to The Housework Can Wait and Never Too Fond of Books in your post.
4. Visit as many blogs as you can, reminisce about books you loved, and discover some “new” books for your TBR list!
This week, my throwback is A New Leash on Life by Emily Carmichael
Genre: Adult Fiction (Contemporary Romance The Blurb:
Dog trainer Jane Connor has always preferred the company of canines, so when her kennel is destroyed in an Arizona wildfire, she finds her whole world in ashes. Jane managed to rescue all the animals, but her status as a local hero won’t pay the bills. Soon she’s reluctantly agreeing to work on a reality TV series about life on the dog show circuit–starring herself and her golden retriever, Shadow.
Jane has complete confidence in Shadow’s star quality–until she sets eyes on their chief competitor: an irritatingly perfect little papillon! Worse, the dog is attached at the leash to hunky Cole Forrest. Jane can hardly hide her attraction off-camera, so how will she conceal it from a national audience? It’s exactly the kind of distraction she doesn’t need. But in a summer of surprises, Jane just might discover that an old dog learn new tricks–when love is the treat.
This was one of those books that's just fun. A New Leash on Life was a quick and light read. I picked the book up on a whim a few years ago because I was going to have a few hours of nothing-ness and I didn't have a nook back then. The dog on the cover caught my eye. There's nothing deep or meaningful about it, but it has dogs and a romance so count me in!
