Confuzzled Books

If you are wondering what kinds of books I review and events I host, this little section is the place to look. Books I love to read: Children's, Young Adult, Paranormal and Fantasy books. Books I like to read: General Fiction, Romances, Religious Fiction, Mysteries and Biographies. So those are the genres of books I will generally review. If you send me a book outside of those areas, I'll consider it, but it may not fit my tastes. Reviews will take about 2 months to post; I try to post them around the time the book is released. On giveaways: Sending me a signed book to give away on the site is a great way to get your book noticed. I do a "mystery book" giveaway about every 2 weeks, where I read the book and twitter about it without revealing its title, then reveal what I've been reading and give it away. The whole event takes a couple weeks, and I feature the giveaway book on my blog for most of that time.

Crazy Bitch: Living with Canine Compulsive Disorder

Crazy Bitch: Living with Canine Compulsive Disorder - Peggy Tibbetts Author Peggy Tibbetts and husband care immensely for their dogs, Zeus and Venus. Zeus being very stoic and calm was different from Venus who because of her breed was a wild child. As they were just realizing the needs for Venus to have her freedom, Tibbetts neighbors harassed the family (canine and human) until Venus had to be medicated.

I really felt kinship for the Tibbetts family and misunderstood Venus. I also give them credit for sticking it out with their neighbors. I think I would have moved then put up with all that negativity.

I find that there was nothing that I disliked about Crazy Bitch but a few things may have annoying to me. Sometimes it felt too focused on the neighbors harassing the Tibbetts and as focused on the dog. I know that the harassment was part of Venus’s story too.

I do love true story about a family and their pets. Always make me remember that I am lucky to have my fur baby as long as we have had her.
