The Tribe

The Tribe

My Review The Tribe was unlike anything I have read and was a fun read.  When the story opened and I realized that the initial conversation was taking place between cats, I was intrigued.  Well over half of the story is told from the point of view of the cats.  Abandoned years ago on a […]

My Cousin Jeremy

My Review My Cousin Jeremy is one of those books that grabs you right at the beginning and keeps you there right to the end.  Jeremy and Clarissa are cousins who fall in love at a very young age but are torn apart by Clarissa’s cold and domineering father.  In an effort to deny their […]
