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.

Thank you, NetGalley, for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of The Stranger Upstairs by Lisa M. Matlin.  The synopsis was intriguing, and when I received word that my request to read and review this book, I was thrilled.  I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review.

Although I didn't necessarily like the main character, Sarah Slade, or her husband, I really wanted things to go her way and for the book to have a good ending.  There were so many twists and turns that I wasn't sure what to expect.  Whether it was a good ending or not, you'll have to read The Stranger Upstairs for yourself to find out.  

Despite not liking Sarah too much, I was intrigued with this story from the first page and found parts of it to be reminiscent of The Shining by Stephen King.  It definitely had me sitting on the edge of my seat, and there were times I was creeped out.

Four out of five stars is what I give The Stranger Upstairs by Lisa M. Matlin.  Don't miss out on this suspenseful, creepy, and horrifying novel.  I look forward to reading more stories from this author.
