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: An Unthinkable Thing by Nicole Lundrigan

book review an unthinkable thing nicole lundrigan
In the summer of 1958, Tommie Ware turns eleven, and little does he know that his life will be turned upside down when his aunt doesn't come home from her night shift. She's later found murdered, presumably by a serial killer, and Tommie is sent to live with his mother at the Henneberry Estate, where she works as a servant. Nothing is as it seems in An Unthinkable Thing by Nicole Lundrigan.

First, I want to start by thanking NetGalley and Penguin Random House Canada for the advanced ebook copy of An Unthinkable Thing by Nicole Lundrigan. It was a pleasure to be one of the first people to read this book.

Told from the perspective of Tommy Ware, An Unthinkable Thing was reminiscent of several V.C. Andrews books. It's even a bit nostalgic of Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. Throughout the book, I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop, and when it did, I was content with the result.

Although a little slow, the story was well written, and I was eager to find out what would happen. I was pleased that there were several likable characters, which made up for the ones that weren't pleasant. All in all, I enjoyed An Unthinkable Thing, and there isn't really anything negative I could say about the book other than the pacing could have been a bit more brisk. Four out of five stars.
