Blurb

Join Elmo, Oscar, Cookie Monster, and the rest of your Sesame Street Friends as they get cozy and comfy for bed. Sweet Dreams!

My Review: Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Sesame Street characters are all ready to have you join in on their goodnight lullaby. Elmo has a hard time trying to fall asleep. All the other Sesame Street friends join in on great tips before getting ready for bed. The illustrations are super cute. The colors are so vivid and bright. I loved that all the Sesame Street friends bedtime routines were part of this book. Children will enjoy the fun and sing along.

BOOK DETAILS:
Mercenary
by Bella Di Corte
(Gangsters of New York, #3)
Publication date: November 13th 2020
Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense

Synopsis:

I had something to live for.

The moment I saw him, I knew.

His eyes would hypnotize.
His lips would speak the most beautiful promises.
His body? Made for pleasure.

But if Corrado Capitani thought that he could fool me into thinking he was a good man, he was wrong.

The moment I saw him, I knew the truth.

Those eyes hid his poisonous heart.
Those lips were vessels of deception.
That body? Made for inflicting pain.

He wasn’t sent from heaven. He was sent to drag me back to hell.

I had something to die for.

Alcina Parisi had a price on her head, and she’d eluded the best. She thought no one would ever find her, but I did. Everyone in our world called me Scorpio—the man who never let the enemy go. But she was a weapon, not an adversary, and I’d claimed her as mine.

Mercenary is the third of three books set in the savage world of the Gangsters of New York series.

Author Biography

Bella Di Corte has been writing romance for seven years, even longer if you count the stories in her head that were never written down, but she didn’t realize how much she enjoyed writing alphas until recently. Tough guys who walk the line between irredeemable and savable, and the strong women who force them to feel, inspire her to keep putting words to the page.

Apart from writing, Bella loves to spend time with her husband, daughter, and family. She also loves to read, listen to music, cook meals that were passed down to her, and take photographs. She mostly takes pictures of her family (when they let her) and her three dogs.  

Bella grew up in New Orleans, a place she considers a creative playground.

She loves to connect with readers, so don’t hesitate to email her at belladicorte@gmail.com if you’d like to reach out.

Review: Fussy Flamingo by Shelly Vaughan James, illustrations by Matthew Rivera

Goodreads Blurb

Lola, a young flamingo, knows that eating shrimp will make her feathers pink, but when her parents look away she tries different foods and turns a series of wild colors.

My Review: Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I receive an early reads book from Sourcebooks for an honest review.

For those who don’t know me, I am a huge flamingo lover. I love anything flamingo related. I was ecstatic about reading this book. Matthew is an amazing artist. The illustrations were so adorable and I totally enjoyed all Lola’s eating adventures.

Lola is not impressed with eating shrimps. Her feathers are gray in a flock of pink flamingos. She is more of an adventuress and enjoys having fruit. Her parents are not very happy when she shows up in funky colors instead of pink. Lola truly resembles my uniqueness and colorful life. I was very happy that Shelly added a page with quick flamingo facts. Children are going to enjoy this adorable story and will love to learn more about the fabulous flamingos. She even included some web links that children can view for more flamingo information.

Flock with style and stay unique!

Review: Pirate Nell’s Tale to Tell by Helen Docherty & Thomas Docherty

Goodreads Blurb

Nell is finally a pirate!

And she has her trusty Pirate’s Almanac to help her sail the seas, even if Captain Gnash doesn’t like books on his ship. But when the journey gets rough and the captain is in trouble, it’s Nell and all her pirate knowledge that saves the day and leads them to the greatest buried treasure of all…

My Review: Rated 5 out 5 stars

Nell is a book lover who saves the pirates from imminent danger, which she saw coming. Nell always wanted to be a pirate. She would read her Pirate Almanac, which Captain Gnash didn’t like at all. No reading time was available in the ship. She spent her days cleaning instead of having her pirate adventures. Everything changed when she saved Captain Gnash and found the location of the treasure.

The pirates were super excited to have found not 1 chest but 20 chest. They were utterly surprise to find the chest didn’t hold gold, jewels or diamonds, but they were filled with books. This book will teach children that reading is very important in order to learn and be able to have different adventures. Having to listen to others and working together will keep everyone safe. Books are filled with knowledge that will take you to many unexpected adventures.

My Review: Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I am truly speechless. Dan Brown is my favorite author. This book is amazing!!

Kids will enjoy searching for letters to figure out the instruments being used in the music. This book comes with an app with music composed by Dan Brown. You can listen to the songs and then read along. I spent an hour listening to the music, searching for the bee in the illustrations and of course finding the words and trying to figure out what they spell. Kids will be super busy and will enjoy everything this book has to offer. The illustrations are so adorable and colorful. This book brings music, animals, instruments, and word searches all-in-one. I always thought highly of Dan Brown, he definitely impressed me with his talents. Bravo for a book so unique that it will be the talk of all the kids.

Brown’s novels are published in 52 languages around the world with 200 million copies in print.

In 2005, Brown was named one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World by TIME Magazine, whose editors credited him with “keeping the publishing industry afloat; renewed interest in Leonardo da Vinci and early Christian history; spiking tourism to Paris and Rome; a growing membership in secret societies; the ire of Cardinals in Rome; eight books denying the claims of the novel and seven guides to read along with it; a flood of historical thrillers; and a major motion picture franchise.”

These themes eventually formed the backdrop for his books. He is a graduate of Amherst College and Phillips Exeter Academy, where he later returned to teach English before focusing his attention full time to writing.
