Book Review: There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner

Image
There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner is a children's book where kids look to make sure there are no dragons in the book.  The expected publication date is March 5, 2024.  I'd like to thank NetGalley for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of this book. I have to say that I was a bit disappointed in this picture book.  I didn't care for the story, and it's not something I would likely read to a child.  I also didn't like that the story actually did have dragons in it only because I feel like a child might be upset that they were mislead.  However, I'm not the target audience, so kids may love it. On a positive note, I did enjoy the colorful illustrations.  It definitely gives the reader a lot to look at.  Three out of five stars is what I gave There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner.

I remember enjoying the book but never picked up another one of her books. That is until I enrolled in a 20th Century World Literature class at my university during the 8-week summer semester where we would read eight books of the course of the semester. Two of those books were The Murder of Roger Ackroyd and And Then There Where None . After revisiting the book that was originally required reading for me in the eighth grade, I fell in love with her writing all over again and began to binge read all of her books. The Hercule Poirot series is definitely my favorite series by Agatha Christie. However, I read the series out of order, and I am rereading the Hercule Poirot books again; this time in the order of publication.   Poirot Investigates (Hercule Poirot, #3) is the third installment o

Book Review: Luck, Love & Lemon Pie by Amy E. Reichert

When MJ Boudreaux's husband shows up several hours late for their lunch date to celebrate their anniversary, she realizes that they're drifting apart. Her husband seems more interested in spending time at a Milwaukee casino than with her. MJ decides the perfect way for them to become closer is to take up poker, but her plan isn't working in the way she thought. Luck, Love & Lemon Pie by Amy E. Reichert was given to me as a Christmas present by my mother. When I first started reading this book, I was a bit unsure if I was going to like it or not. However, I ended up really enjoying the story line. It featured topics such as jealousy, infidelity, divorce, friendship, gambling, and alcoholism. At the beginning of the book, MJ admits that she and her husband Chris haven't been on the same page and decides to take matters into her own hands instead of just sitting down and having a conversation with her husband. Some people probably think this is the wrong w
