Book Review: “The Cousins”

The Cousins” by Karen M. McManus

Source: Library

Genre: Young Adult Fiction, Mystery

Summary:

Milly, Aubrey, and Jonah Story are cousins, but they barely know each another, and they’ve never even met their grandmother. Rich and reclusive, she disinherited their parents before they were born.

Literati: Pros and Cons + My First Box

Literati sent me a 3 month subscription to their book club in exchange for 3 blog posts. As always, these are my honest thoughts on the service & subscription.

For those ‘old timers’ in the book subscription community, we still LOVE getting books but we’re getting tired of all the stuff in various book boxes. (How many mugs? candles? tote bags? art prints? does someone really need??)
