My Review of Waiting For Doggo by Mark B Mills

doggo

I am so sorry I waited quite a while to read this book! It is so good! Waiting For Doggo is released on 20/11/2014

Thanks to Georgina Moore at Headline for sending me a copy of this in exchange for my honest review.

What They Say:
No-one ever called Dan a pushover. But then no-one ever called him fast-track either. He likes driving slowly, playing Sudoku on his iPhone, swapping one scruffy jumper for another. He's been with Clara for four years and he's been perfectly happy; but now she's left him, leaving nothing but a long letter filled with incriminations and a small, white, almost hairless dog, named Doggo. So now Dan is single, a man without any kind of partner whether working or in love. He's just one reluctant dog owner. Find a new home for him, that's the plan. Come on...everyone knows the old adage about the best laid plans and besides, Doggo is one special kind of a four legged friend...and an inspiration.
 
What I Say: 
 
I had no idea what to expect when I started reading this book. No, that's a lie. I expected a kind of mediocre blah blah story about a man and a dog and they saved each other etc etc...
 
I had heard a lot of hype about Doggo on Twitter and had high hopes that this book would be different. IT SO WAS!!
 
Waiting For Doggo is a story about an ugly little dog with a heart as big as a giant. He's quirky, wise and funny. He has his own little way of loving people and it's so heart warming and endearing. I love how he kind of worships Jennifer Aniston! That was so cute!
 
Dan is a great character and the perfect match for Doggo. He's a bit naïve, a bit of a dork but so likeable. He's not sure what to make of his new situation and Doggo helps him to learn and adjust to it. They are a great pair to read about. Edie is adorable too. I really, really liked her!
 
This isn't your usual fluffy human and animal story at all! Doggo is a huge personality and I'm so glad I read this book! It's just a great, lovely, warm but funny story! 8/10

Blog Tour Stop with Extract - When Polly Met Olly by Zoe May

Welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour for  When Polly Met Olly by Zoe May! I have an exclusive extract for you today!


What They Say:
Polly and Olly were never supposed to meet…
Polly might spend her days searching for eligible matches for her elite list of clients at her New York dating agency, but her own love life is starting to go up in smoke. Even worse, she can’t stop thinking about the very person she’s meant to be setting her latest client up with… surely it can’t get any worse! But then Polly bumps into oh-so-handsome Olly, who heads up a rival agency, and realizes that perhaps all really is fair in love and dating war…
Chapter One
Surely, I’m not qualified to be a matchmaker?!
You’d think getting a job at a dating agency might actually require you to have found love, or at least be good at dating, but apparently not. I’ve been single for three years and I haven’t had a date for six months, yet I’m pretty sure I’m nailing this interview. ‘So, what kind of message would you send Eri…
