I felt like there was a back story to these characters that I did not know about, although this did not affect the quality of the book. It was a… Continue reading Domnall and the Borrowed Child by Sylvia Spruck Wrigley

Quick Book Review: Jacob’s Odyssey by Russ Melrose

Photo via Goodreads. Jacob's Odyssey was an interesting zombie apocalypse novel. I found this book to be well written, but the first half of the book left me rather bored. The main character, Jacob, does not speak to anyone for the first half of the novel. Without any conversation the novel seemed rather bland. It's… Continue reading Quick Book Review: Jacob’s Odyssey by Russ Melrose
