Book Review

Fellow book junkies: I'm going to start doing Book Reviews of the books I'm reading.  When I'm finished, I'll tell you what I thought, without spoiling anything, and totally invite discussion!  Here's my first one!

I just finished Tell Me Where It Hurts by Dr. Nick Trout.  I love animal books.  Mostly, they make me cry, and I shed a few tears on this one.  It's probably because I have two dogs and when I read about sick animals or animals dying, I think of them.  I just don't know how I'm going to handle it when it happens.  This book is about real tales that Dr. Nick Trout has encountered during his years of being a veteranarian.  He's very passionate about his job and the way he describes some of the animals is downright funny.  He laid the book out in an interesting way.  He has the timeline as being one full day of his job.  However, the stories are from different times, and some are follow-ups.  It's interesting.  I definitely recommend it if you like stories that involve animals and caring for them.  Plus, the book grabbed me because of the Boston Terrier on the cover...I have a Boston Terrier as well.

My Boston Terrier, Brody.

My next book is Born to Bite by Lynsay Sands.  Yes, it's a vampire book and part of a series.  It's the latest book of the Argeneau series (#13) and I absolutely adore them!  Can't wait to dig in!
