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

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.

Book Review: Always Watching by Chevy Stevens

book review always watching chevy stevens

Always Watching by Chevy Stevens introduces us to Nadine Lavoie, a doctor at a psychiatric hospital. After counseling a new patient named Heather, Nadine starts recalling repressed memories of when she lived at a commune at a child and realizes that everything is not as it seems.

When I first started reading Always Watching, I wasn't sure I was going to enjoy this particular storyline.However, once I got about a third of the way through the book, it picked up a lot. This book of Chevy Stevens ended up being one of my favorites by this author.

Although some of the plot was predictable, there were a couple of plot twists that I didn't see coming, and after those twists were revealed, they fit in well with the story and made a lot of sense. There were quite a few characters that I didn't care for, but once a few things were revealed about those characters, I ended up liking them.

This book is a definite must read for most people, but it may not be for everyone as it contains some sensitive topics such as alcoholism, drug use, suicide, molestation, and cults. I gave Always Watching by Chevy Stevens five out of five stars. If you enjoyed this book, you may enjoy The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins.
