The lion king(1994)(24lk)

Autorid:Justine Korman Fontes, Don Williams



The exciting tale of Simba, a young cub who earns his place in the Circle of Life, is retold in the classic Little Golden Book format.


Kes ei tea siis meist lugu lõvipoeg Simbast. Minu jaoks oli see punkt lugemiseväljakutses kõige raskem. Kuna olen sündinud 1994 aastal, siis andis ikka otsida. Esimene kord kui see raamat ilmus oli aasta 1994 ja 1.jaanuar. Kuidagi õnnestus mul ühe tuttava kaudu saada selle raamatu koopia. Kaanepilt on jah aastast 2003 aga loodan, et see ei häiri. Kellele siis loomalood ei meeldi. Ma soovitada ei oska, kuna valisin enda sünniaasta järgi raamatu. Aga tegu oli vahva looga ja lugesin seda inglise keelsena, kuigi ma kirjutan postituse sellest eesti keeles. Mulle on alati meeldinud loomalood ja ma arvan, et järgmiseks punktiks saabki see, kus peategelane on koer. Kes siis neid ei armastaks! Päikest kõigile, siin Võru kohal igatahes särab täies hiilguses.



Cord’s Chance (Men of Mercy #7)(2018)

Cord’s Chance (Men of Mercy #7)(2018)(249lk)

Author:  Lindsay Cross



He thought he was done. His career as a special forces sniper was over. He’d lost his leg and his dignity in that ambush. Now, after nearly a year of rehab, he was fighting the toughest battle in his life: prove he was still worthy to serve.

His chance:
Contract with a security firm to pull protection for a rancher by the name of Sam Bishop. If he succeeded in routing out the bad guy, Cord would be back on the team.

The bonus:
He’d be able to get the hell away from all the counselors and therapists trying to tell him how to come to grips with his PTSD and missing limb. There were no emotions and feelings in west Texas, just rough necks and grit. Exactly what he needed.

The catch:
Sam’s real name is Samantha and she’s not a codgy old man – she’s the one girl from Cord’s past he never got over. He thought he’d lost his chance with her, and now that he wasn’t a whole man, he didn’t deserve her.

Samantha is determined to show Cord he’s everything she ever wanted. Her biggest battle isn’t the stalker threatening her life: it’s making Cord see he’s worthy of her love and so much more.

My opinion of the book.

Oh, I loved the book so much that I forgot to go sleep. Just keep reading and reading it. Story was about Cord and Samantha. I am glad that they get together. Perfect couple and so good reading that I hope someday I have chance to read more books in this series. I hope that author is writing more stories. She is so good at it. This was a great story about healing and second chances, with some suspense added in. Cord and Samantha were good friends in high school, but Samantha always had a crush on him. Cord didn’t think he was good enough for Samantha, so he kept her friend zoned and kept his feelings hidden. There second chance happens several years later when after being injured, Cord is assigned to protect Samantha from a stalker. Why he did it and when they come back together, you my friends have to read it. I garantee that you don,t even notice when book is over. I loved it and I am happy to read it.

Yet, as Liesl helps shoulder the burden of running her family’s inn, her dreams of composition and childish fancies about the Goblin King must be set aside in favor of more practical concerns.

But when her sister Käthe is taken by the goblins, Liesl journeys to their realm to rescue her sister and return her to the world above. The Goblin King agrees to let Käthe go—for a price.

In exchange for her sister’s freedom, Liesl offers her hand in marriage to the Goblin King. He accepts.

Down in the Underground, Liesl discovers that the Goblin King still inspires her—musically, physically, emotionally.

My opinion

I loved this book so much, that I can,t wait, when I can read next book in this series. I am happy, because this book was a recommend from my friend and I hoped that could be good. Oh, Goblin King and Liesel, they were such a lovely couple. I hoped that ending is little different, but that ending was suprise to me. I hope, that I can read more books in this series and I want that more and more. Author is unknown for me, but now I need more this books from her. She is a good author and please if she could read my review, please maybe she can left me a comment down the post. When I started to reading it, I just can,t stop doing it, I just keep turning pages and enjoyed this story so much. I will definitely recommend this book to my friends.

My opinion

So cute book, that I liked all pictures what was inside of it. Of course it’s for kids, but it was good reading to me too. It covers a variety of babies from the animal kingdom doing things baby animals do. The images are amazing, clear, and so fun. Most pages have more than 2 pictures on them. Lots of info is included, little tidbits are added tastefully here and there without being cluttered. Very well organized. Colorful, bright, and informative.

I hope someday I have love in my life too and somebody loves me so much as Raylan loves Amber.

My opinion about the book

This time book concentrates to David and Lori’s  marriage.  How they find themselves again and how much pain and tears where there, but I loved it so much like the other books what I have read in this series. I loved the book by first page to last page, because it was so good that I just keep reading and reading when it just ended. I will recommend this series to my friends and I hope they read it too. Thank you Lindsay to opportunity to read four books in this series so far. I hope that I have time to read more books in this series. I just can,t stop reading, it was so good and so smooth writing that it just make me feel very good and exiting. And ofcourse this is a stand-alone book, but I  recommend reading the other books in the series, and reading them in order, to get the best enjoyment out of the series. So hot book that I just haven,t chance to quit reading it. Thank you Lindsay such a good work and I hope you keep writing!! Thank you and read if you like it!
