Magical realism. A genre tied closely to fantasy, where the magic happens in the everyday world. When done well, it makes for a truly special treat, and today’s bookaholic deal is one of the best examples of its kind. Sitting at an unheard-of 4.8 on Amazon with over 5,000 reviews (and another 48,000 5-star ratings on Goodreads), this New York Times bestseller captured hearts around the world and became a major motion picture.

In this dog story with a twist, the dog isn’t born, but re-born, time and time again. And the dog is… well… a dog. He’s not a personified dog, who understands human speech and would love to sit down for tea if only he spoke English and had opposable thumbs. He’s a dog. Who loves his family and also loves rolling in the smelliest stuff on the planet. He doesn’t know why he keeps finding himself in new puppy lives, time and time again, but he’s determined to find out.
