Musing Mondays (July 5)
Musing Mondays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.
This weeks question: What are you currently reading? Would you recommend it to others? Is it part of a series (if so, which one)? What are you thinking about it? What book(s) would you compare it to, if any?
I'm currently reading Wesley the Owl by Stacey O'Brien. It's a memoir about a scientist who takes in a wounded baby owl. It's a stand alone book, and I would recommend it to people who enjoy animal stories, and love owl's sentimentally or from a scientific approach. Right now I am enjoying it, it is very interesting, and humorous, and sometimes sad, as you begin to realize how emotional, and vulnerable animals are and how much we affect their lives. I'm not sure what books I'd compare it too because I haven't read any other memoir but I'd probably say it's pretty safe to compare it to books like Dewey by Vicki Myron or Marley and Me by John Grogan. I base this on the fact they're all memoirs involving animals. :)
