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: Last Girl Ghosted by Lisa Unger

book review last girl ghosted lisa unger

Last Girl Ghosted by Lisa Unger introduces us the world of online dating, dating apps, and what might go wrong in this fictional thriller. Wren Greenwood thinks she has met the one through a dating app, but after several months of dating Adam Harper, he stands her up for dinner and disappears . . . his phone has been disconnected and someone else is staying in his apartment. Why has Wren been ghosted?

This is the second novel I've read by Lisa Unger. At first, I wasn't sure if I was going to like Last Girl Ghosted because it started out extremely slow. However, once I got sixty or so pages into the book, it began to take off, and I couldn't put it down. If I didn't have to work the next day, I would've stayed up into the wee hours of the night to finish.

Written mainly from Wren Greenwood's perspective, the story jumps back and forth between the past and present in a way that's done exceptionally well. Additionally, we do learn the backstory of the three women who are missing. Those backstories are told from their point of view and interwoven throughout the book nicely without taking anything away from the main character's story. Centering the entire story around the people you meet on dating sites and apps, definitely made the story believable because you never really know if they are who they say they are.

There is very little I can say that I disliked about Last Girl Ghosted by Lisa Unger. As I mentioned before, it started out slowly. The only other thing that bothered me were the parts about hunting animals for food. All in all, I'd give Last Girl Ghosted four and half stars out of five. If you enjoyed reading this book, I'd recommend Stillhouse Lake (Stillhouse Lake, #1) by Rachel Caine.
