Goodreads Monday is a really simple weekly meme, hosted by new host Budget Tales Book Blog, where you choose a book at random from your Goodreads TBR and explain why you want to read it.
This week’s pick is Lily and the Octopus by Steven Rowley
Combining the emotional depth of The Art of Racing in the Rain with the magical spirit of The Life of Pi, Lily and the Octopus is an epic adventure of the heart.
When you sit down with Lily and the Octopus, you will be taken on an unforgettable ride.
The magic of this novel is in the read, and we don’t want to spoil it by giving away too many details. We can tell you that this is a story about that special someone: the one you trust, the one you can’t live without.
For Ted Flask, that someone special is his aging companion Lily, who happens to be a dog. Lily and the Octopus reminds us how it feels to love fiercely, how difficult it can be to let go, and how the fight for those we love is the greatest fight of all.
Why do I want to read it?
There’s a Dachshund on the cover…and yes I realise I will most likely ball my eyes out I still really need to read it…but sausage dogs are everything.
See pic of my beautiful boy Benson for proof.
