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: I'm Not Scared No Way! by Kimberly Pattinson, Illustrated by Zeynet Dural

Book Review  I'm Not Scared No Way! by Kimberly Pattinson, Illustrated by Zeynet Dural

I'm Not Scared No Way! by Kimberly Pattinson, Illustrated by Zeynet Dural was published on September 18, 2022 and is about a little boy getting his first haircut.

Thank you to NetGalley and Books Go Social for the free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

This book goes through the emotions a child might go through when getting their first haircut.  It's great for a child that might be two or three, but most kids don't remember getting their first haircut.  I sure don't remember mine.  
 
Personally, if a child is getting upset about their first haircut beforehand, I think it has more to do with the parents getting upset about it, and the kids feeding off of their parent's emotions.  That's not to say that once they get to a hair salon that the noises from hair clippers or seeing scissors come towards their head isn't upsetting because I am sure it is.  

What I would've liked to see in the book is more of the actual haircut and the hairdresser showing all the tools to the kid to help them understand what would happen.  The aftermath showing that the parents were excited about the haircut was great.

With that being said, having items at the back of the book to keep the child's hair among other things associated with the first haircut is an amazing way to make a memento of one of the child's "firsts". 

All in all, I gave I'm Not Scared No Way! by Kimberly Pattinson, Illustrated by Zeynet Dural four out of five stars because it was a super cute book.
