But for now, come for a little boat ride where we can talk books!
Today I'm discussing some books that feature animals. Some are about animals, others just have a strong feature of animals in them.
The Riverboat Adventures by Lois Walfrid Johnson
Now called "The Freedom Seeker Series"
I slipped in another Johnson series for the week. ;) Clever, huh? The reason I chose this one is because of Samson. Gotta love Samson. He is a big Newfoundland aboard the steamboat, and trust me, he plays a very vital and important role in the series!

Wild Animals of the Five Rivers Country by George Franklin
Sometimes old, random books are the best. This has been a family favorite, as Mr. Franklin explores various animals in the wild and tells their story. I loved this one as a kid!
Not on Goodreads, but see it on Amazon here
Summer of the Monkeys by Wilson Rawls
I haven't read this one, but I have fond memories of Mom reading it out loud to our family (I know for a fact that she smoothed over some areas for the family reading that she didn't particularly want all ages to hear)

Thunder Dog by Michael Hingson
Read. This. Book.
One of my friends found it at random and lent it to me. It is well worth the read!! Just... read it. ;)
Rise of Aredor by Claire Banschbach
Both books one and two creatively feature animals. I think I liked it so much because I had considered writing a book where the MC had a hawk that was important to him. ;) It was a neat addition to the story.
And that, my friends, sums up our week of books! Hasn't it been fun? What are the top five books you've added to your TBR list? Have you already bought some of the books you want to read? (or are you like me and just wait until you can save for them, find the eBook free, or ask for it for Christmas?)
Thanks for joining us and making this such a fun party!!
