If you only ever read one book this year, please, I am begging you. Go to Target and buy yourself a copy of Lily and the Octopus. It’ll make you laugh. It’ll make you cry. It’ll make you wanna buy yourself a little Dachshund puppy.
The writing was so good. SO GOOD! I felt like the author and I were best friends. (May have even tried to Tweet the guy at 1am, just to tell him I loved it.)
I won’t post any spoilers, but you need to know it’s fiction, in the sense that his dog talks to him. It’s not like Marley & Me, where the dog is a dog. Lily is a dog that has good enough sense to pick Ryan Reynolds over Ryan Gosling. 🙂
This is definitely on my list of favorite books and one I would absolutely read again. There are very few books I would ever read twice; mostly because there are too many books out there to read the same one again. But Lily and the Octopus is a definite exception.
