Book Review: Finlay Donovan Jumps The Gun (Finlay Donovan, #3) by Elle Cosimano

Finlay Donovan Jumps The Gun (Finlay Donovan, #3) by Elle Cosimano is the latest installment in the Finlay Donovan book series.  It opens with Finlay needing to identify who a contract killer is before Mob Boss Feliks does or else she will be killed.  Unfortunately, Finlay thinks the killer is a dirty cop, so she and Vero go undercover at a citizen's police academy to figure out who it may be, and chaos ensues. I'd like to thank NetGalley, St. Martin's Press, and Minotaur Books for the Advanced Reader's Copy of Finlay Donovan Jumps The Gun (Finlay Donovan, #3) by Elle Cosimano.  I was thrilled to be approved to receive this book for free in exchange for my honest review. Elle Cosimano has done a phenomenal job with this series making each sequel more believable.  After a rough start with the series, I've come to love most of the characters and the books.  I think the only character that I don't particularly care for is Finlay's ex-husband Steven.  Where I

Book Review: The Berenstain Bears and the Nerdy Nephew by Stan Berenstain and Jan Berenstain

the berenstain bears and the nerdy nephew

The Berenstain Bears and the Nerdy Nephew by Stan and Jan Berenstain is about a new student named Ferdy Factual who is a stuck up know it all. He is rude to Brother & Sister no matter how nice they are to him. When other students begin to bully Ferdy, he realizes he actually needs friends like Brother & Sister. 

As a child, I loved reading picture books with some of my favorite stories being part of The Berenstain Bears books by Stan and Jan Berenstain. I never knew that Stan & Jan Berenstain had made their famous books into chapter books as well. It wasn't until BookBub.com sent me an email about a bundle of these chapter books being on sale that I knew of them. As a side note, I always thought the books were The Berenstein Bears. Boy was I surprised to learn I was wrong!

The Berenstain Bears and the Nerdy Nephew is a great chapter book for younger children just starting out to read . . . I'd recommend it for six to eight year old kids. It was super cute and taught a great lesson about bullying. I love the fact that Stan and Jan Berenstain write books that have teachable situations that are relatable to kids without it being condescending to their audience. For such a short book, the authors did a great job in character development that you don't always see in children's books. I gave it four out of five stars. If you loved this book, I'd recommend Miss Nelson is Missing! by Harry Allard.
