WHAT I READ LAST
THE DOG DAYS OF SUMMER READING CHALLENGE HOSTED BY LA LA IN THE LIBRARY AND MYSELF OFFICIALLY STARTED ON AUGUST 1ST. THE CHALLENGE IS SIMPLE. DURING THE MONTH OF AUGUST, READ AND POST ABOUT AS MANY BOOKS ABOUT DOGS, BOOKS WITH DOGS ON THE COVER, OR BOOKS WRITTEN BY DOGS (KIDDING) AS YOU WANT. THERE WILL BE A COUPLE GIVEAWAYS AND SOME FUN DOG RELATED BLOG POSTS AND CHALLENGES THROUGHOUT THE MONTH AS WELL.
Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively, and by listening very closely to the words of his master, Denny Swift, an up-and-coming race car driver.
This book was more serious than I thought it would be. I enjoyed the humorous and insightful perspective of the dog, Enzo, as the narrator. The book wasn’t as sad as I thought it would be but it may make you cry.
I DECIDED TO READ THIS BOOK FIRST BECAUSE THERE IS A MOVIE BASED ON THE BOOK COMING OUT AUGUST 9TH.

WHAT I AM READING NEXT
Jonathan Trefoil’s boss is unhinged, his relationship baffling, and his apartment just the wrong side of legal. His girlfriend wants to marry someone just like him—only richer and with a different sense of humor. He doesn’t remember life being this confusing, back before everyone expected him to act like a grown-up.
When his brother asks him to look after his dogs, Jonathan’s world view begins to shift. Could a border collie and a cocker spaniel hold the key to life, the universe, and everything? Their sly maneuvering on daily walks and visits to the alluring vet suggest that human emotional intelligence may not be top dog after all.
