I am participating in two Reading Challenges this month.  The first one is hosted by myself and La La in the Library. We are going to read books about dogs and have some dog related blog posts.  I will have a giveaway later in the month.

MY REVIEW

This was such an uplifting and fun read. I was expecting a book about an abandoned dog that races across China with the author who is an ultra marathon runner. Even though this does happen, there is so much more to the story. As you can guess from the title, Gobi gets lost, in a crowded, dangerous part of China. The author, Dion, goes to amazing lengths to find Gobi. I love that the author bonds with this stray after only a few days and spends countless time and money to get her back. Not only does Dion fall in love with Gobi, so do the other runners in the race. Gobi soon becomes famous in China. The story goes back and forth from the past to the present. The author talks about how he got into running, his previous races, and the death of his father. All these examples of challenges and perseverance help Dion on his quest to find Gobi and bring her home.

    I will be focusing on some ARCs this month since I’m working through all my September releases. Somehow thirteen sneaked onto my pile. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
