Format: Paperback
Stay is an unashamed dog novel. If you don't like dogs, then the book probably isn't for you. But then again, who doesn't like dogs? (I know there are people that don't like dogs, truly, I do. Though it boggles my mind, but each to their own.) Stay is one of the best books I've read, it took me a couple of chapters to get into it, but once I did I was off like a rocket. As soon as Savannah (I refuse to call her Van, Vannah I can do, but not Van, so Savannah she will be) buys Joe, I was hooked. From then on the book is excellent and it really kicks off after that as Savannah's never had a dog before, and Joe is not the kind of dog she was expecting.

I am not joking when I say that whilst reading Stay I had a smile on my face every time Joe did something. I have two dogs, who I love to pieces so give me a fictional dog and it's likely I'll fall madly in love. I wanted my own Joe. I wanted to speak Slovak to him (naturally, coming from Slovakia, Joe only knows Slovakian commands) and have him knock me over because he was so happy to see me. (My dogs can't do that, they're too small.) Yup, folks, I was in love with a fictional dog. It happens. And it seems Allie Larkin really knows her dogs and well, I just spent my entire time smiling like an idiot and pleased no one could see me. Because how do you explain that?

The humans weren't bad either, of course. I was wary about Savannah when I read she was in love with her best friend, Janie's, husband, Peter, but thankfully it strayed on the side of cautious so to speak, and it wasn't as if Savannah was actively pursuing Peter. I thought Savannah's story was interesting.
