TBR Tuesday: Dust of 100 Dogs

Because I have a lot of books hiding on my shelves, and I still want to bring them to your attention, I give you:

Teetering at the top of Mt TBR....

The Dust of 100 Dogs
by A.S. King

In the late seventeenth century, famed teenage pirate Emer Morrisey was on the cusp of escaping the pirate life with her one true love and unfathomable riches when she was slain and cursed with "the dust of one hundred dogs," dooming her to one hundred lives as a dog before returning to a human body-with her memories intact.
Now she's a contemporary American teenager and all she needs is a shovel and a ride to Jamaica.

I simply adore this cover/title combo.  Together, they meant there was no way I wasn't going to buy this book.  But it was one of those purchases where, even though I knew I would read it (I didn't buy it purely for the cover/title), I didn't know when I would get a chance.
But I have a feeling that I'm going to get to soon...
What do you guys think?  Anyone read this?  Love it, hate it?
What's on your TBR?


  1. This sounds AWESOME and I love the cover...now at the top of my wishlist =)

    Great find!

  2. REad it. This is one of my absolute favorite books. It is very unique and well written.

  3. Haven't read this one, but read her latest Please Ignore Vera Dietz, and I'm obsessed with it.

  4. Read it. While it took some wading through in the beginning, I did end up enjoying it a lot. Plus A.S. King is awesome, writing-wise and person-wise.

  5. I love the idea of TBR Tuesday, will definitely join the fun next week :)

    The Dust of 100 Dogs looks awesome, I'm looking forward to your review!

  6. I like this cover! It's the mod feel that gets me :)

    Here is what I need to pick up this TT :)

  7. I just got this one! It looks so good.

    Also, does the hint hint mean that you're having a pirate event soon?? Because that would be awesome!


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
