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.

Book Review: The Summer of Christmas by Juliet Giglio & Keith Giglio

book review the summer of christmas juliet giglio keith giglio

The Summer of Christmas by Juliet Giglio and Keith Giglio opens with up and coming screenwriter Ivy Green about to have her life turned upside down. In the midst of her getting an agent, Ivy's boyfriend breaks up with her. Will they get back together?
 
Thank you, NetGalley and Sourcebooks Casablanca for the Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) of The Summer of Christmas by Juliet Giglio and Keith Giglio. I was happy to read this book in exchange for my honest review.
 
When I saw the title of the book, the cover, and read the synopsis of The Summer of Christmas I was intrigued. After reading the novel, I wasn't disappointed. In the romantic comedy genre, I'd also classify it as a beach read.
 
The beginning of the book was a little rough as it felt a bit rushed and choppy because it jumped forward several years. There are also a few times that the wording in the book was odd, but I think that may be because I received an Advanced Readers Copy. Hopefully, these little oddities and transitions are ironed out before the official publication.

Growing up in the modeling and acting business, I loved the premise of The Summer of Christmas. It felt like home to me, if that makes sense. Although I was familiar with much of the terminology and what goes on behind the scenes of a movie set, the authors did a great job of explaining much of the terms that people outside of the business may not be familiar with.
 
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Even though I don't read romantic comedies on a regular basis, I found it to be a super fun read. Although there were some predictable parts, it didn't detract from the storyline in my opinion. I gave The Summer of Christmas by Juliet Giglio and Keith Giglio three out of five stars.
