Waiting on Wednesday: There is No Dog

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that showcases upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm impatiently yearning for There is No Dog by Meg Rosoff

Goodreads Summary:
Meet your unforgettable protagonist: God, who, as it turns out, is a 19-year-old boy living in the present-day and sharing an apartment with his long-suffering fifty-something personal assistant. Unfortunately for the planet, God is lazy and, frankly, hopeless. He created all of the world's species in six days because he couldn't summon the energy to work for longer. He gets Africa and America mixed up. And his beleagured assistant has his work cut out for him when God creates a near-apolcalyptic flood, having fallen asleep without turning the bath off. There is No Dog is a darkly funny novel from one of our most delightfully unpredictable writers.

I especially want to read this because it's written by Meg Rosoff (Printz Award winner for How I Live Now).  Unfortunately, we all have to wait until January to pick up this little gem!


  1. OMG ! I have never read this book but I must admit it looks interesting. For some reason the title made me think of the movie the Matrix ("There is no spoon") and I just had to read the synopsis. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Interesting pick! I haven't read or ever heard of this novel before today but it looks like something I would read.

    Please check out our "Waiting on Wednesdays" when you get the chance.

  3. i haven't heard of this book before. but it sounds fantastic and love the cover!
