Book Review: I know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou

Every time I think of Maya Angelou, I hear her voice in my head reciting her famous poems "Phenomenal Woman" or "And Still I Rise".

Book Review: The Year in San Fernando by Michael Anthony

There is something special about a book that paints a lucid picture of a time long ago. I enjoy books that are somewhat like a historical storybook, a window into the past.

Book Review: An American Marriage by Tayari Jones

Now this was a good book but just not a good book for me. It honestly as we Trinis would say, was real bacchanal from the start. My friend Hannah recommended this book to me and although I found it entertaining, I rated it 3.5 / 5 because it really was too much drama for … Continue reading Book Review: An American Marriage by Tayari Jones
