Things Your Dog Doesn't Want You to Know: Eleven Courageous Canines Tell All by Jeff Johnson and Hy Conrad






I laughed so hard, I woke the dog. Seriously!

This book is so much fun to read and a perfect gift/read for dog lovers.  You will devourer this cute, quick read about eleven adorable dogs. The book is written from the "voice" of the dogs and couldn't be a more delightful read.


Grade: A+



Overview [B&N]

Dear Human:
Your dog probably puzzles you. Most of us do that. And most of us would like to keep things as they are: humans in the dark, dogs with the upper hand.
But we dogs are about to let you in a little secret. Okay, a lot of secrets.
  • We graduated first in our obedience class three times. This should tell you something.
  • Puppies know that they're being cute. They're using you.
  • We don't sound anything like those silly voices you use to imitate us.
  • We hate those ridiculous names you give some of us. Moonbeam is not a dignified name for a mutt.
  • You might want to check your herb garden for fertilizer.
  • We are only wearing this stupid birthday hat so we can get some cake. No self-respecting dog cares about his birthday.
  • We are not spoiled, certainly not in comparison to teenage girls.
  • We are in charge of the house. We let you pretend that you are.
  • We'd be lost without you. We love you.

The past ten years have been met with many ups and downs and some life altering experiences. There has been death, divorce, birth and career highs but when they are given the opportunity by a magician to travel back to the year their turned 40 they take it.

They are given exactly one year to relive their 40th year befo…

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

I was lucky enough to get an ARC (advanced readers copy) of Gone Girl back in 2012, I felt it was time to revisit it and I found that I enjoyed it now just as much as I did then! You can read my review from 2012 by clicking HERE.


‘You two are the most fucked-up people I have ever met, and I specialize in fucked-up people.”
― Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl

Gone Girl is a fast paced, exciting read! It's about a young married couple named Nick and Amy who are down on their luck and move away from Amy's beloved New York to a Nick's small hometown in Missouri to care for his ailing mother and open up a bar on what is left of Amy's trust fund monies.

The bar allows for the Dunne's to leave a comfortable life but Amy is terribly unhappy, hates the home they are living in and their once romantic, loving marriage had turned. On the day of their wedding anniversary, Amy disappears. The crime scene appears staged and Nick is the number one suspect.

Nick pleads his innocenc…
