Nora

I would like to thank the author Tamar Bobokhidze for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. 

Now, I have been reading many children’s books that dealt with a child’s first day at school, but I was quite surprised and honored that the author Tamar Bobokhidze had given me a free copy of her newest children’s book “Nora’s First Day at School” along with artwork by Salome Eqizashvili and I must admit that it was quite a cute experience to read through!

The story begins with Nora going to Bumble Bee Academy Daycare for the first time and she is really nervous about going. Her father then comforts Nora and tells her that everything going to be alright. Nora then meets her new teacher Ms. Hilda and Ms. Hilda ends up making Nora extremely comfortable in the classroom. Nora was also able to make new friends with her classmates and introduce them to her special toy giraffe Raffee.

Tamar Bobokhidze has done a great job at writing this book as all the characters are extremely adorable to read and I liked how the setting of this book, which takes place at a daycare center, has an extremely friendly environment! I liked the fact that Tamar Bobokhidze focused on the issue about making children comfortable on their first day of school by encouraging both kids and teachers to be as helpful as they can to a new student. This book would be extremely helpful to both parents and teachers who are dealing with kids who are afraid of their first day at school and this book would help teach them how to allow the new students to get used to their new surroundings and make friends easily. I loved the fact that Tamar Bobokhidze made all the characters extremely helpful and friendly with each other, especially Ms. Hilda herself as she is probably one of the most helpful teachers I had ever read in any children’s book as she does all she can to make sure that Nora is comfortable at her new school. I really loved the fact that Nora’s classmates also played their part in making Nora’s first day of school a comfortable experience as they were willing to play games with her and made her feel welcome in the classroom. Salome Eqizashvili’s artwork is adorable to look at as all the animal characters have large and cute looking eyes and I loved the friendly atmosphere of the daycare center itself.

The reason why I gave this book a four-star rating was because I felt that the story was a bit slow at some places and sometimes it was hard for me to get through certain scenes because of the pacing.

Overall, “Nora’s First Day at School” is a truly cute book about going to school for the first time and about how you can conquer your anxiety on your first day of school by making friends and having a helpful teacher! I would recommend this book to children ages three and up since there is nothing inappropriate in this book.

A Moment for Tara: Her heart or her pack? (Prime Prophecy Series)
A Moment for Tara: Her heart or her pack? (Prime Prophecy Series) - Tamar Sloan Tara is bound by duty to her pack. As the firstborn, she has plenty of responsibility but none of the power that comes with being the heir alpha - as long as her mother's streak of birthing girls continues. So when she falls for one of her best friends, the twin boys from the neighboring pack, she's horrified to realize she fell for the wrong one. Torn, Tara must decide what's most important: her heart, or her pack.

I loved this story. Tara's voice is fun and compelling, and the strain between her and Mitch as she tries to navigate her feelings is palpable. It also sets up the major dilemma for the Prime Prophecy series. An excellent and tantalizing short story that makes me want to read more.

Coolest book about History
The Girl King - Meg Clothier

The first page or two of the Girl King book was slightly difficult to get through, i had no idea what the names belonged to or who they may be referencing, but once you get past that this book was splendid.

The characters were awe-inspiring, and so different to one another, i adored the different cultures and types of speech.
Watching Tamar grow into the queen was fantastic, she had to get through such difficult times and learn new things that no one ever expected her to go through (sorry for being vague trying to avoid spoilers) personally i love it when someone has to fend for themselves, after living a life of luxury, and Tamar did a pretty decent job.
The relationship between her and her sister when they grew up was adorable, sweet and tender, they both learnt so much in their time separated, and both grew for the better because of it. I wont even touch on Sos except to say i feared for him, he was such a kind, caring and wonderful boy, so different from the teenager he was when we first met him.

Now the best thing about this book is that its based 'loosely' off history!! isn't that fantastic! the author told us at the end what was and wasnt true, which im thankful for because my facts on history suck - Meg did an excellent job and I'm so glad i picked up this book.

There's some information on her as well as a portrait if you can locate it.

The Broken by Cohen, Tamar (2014) Paperback - Tamar Cohen

How often do you hate every single character in a book? I did not like anyone and veered between peeking between my fingers at the selfishness of Dan and Sasha and putting my head in my hands at the stupidity of Josh and Hannah. The author is talented and the story appealed but I couldn't get past the irritation factor nor did the ending come as a surprise. The descriptions of living in London were good and I liked the style of writing.

War Of The Wives
The War of the Wives - Tamar Cohen

 

My deepest sympathies, ​M​rs. Busfield.  What?  I am Mrs Busfield.  ​Everyone was confused, but the cat was out of the bag.
        ​
Mr. ​Simon Busfield ​had two lives and two wives, and he was the only one who knew. Well only he and his accountant and his financial advisor, but definitely not the two women he claimed to be in love with and married to...one for 28 years and one for 17 years.

Despite the serious situations in the book, THE WAR OF THE WIVES is entertaining and humorous. Once you think the surprises are over, another one pops up.

WAR OF THE WIVES moves back and forth between Selina and Lottie's life telling how Simon managed to lie and cheat and remain married to both women at the same time without their knowing it.  He must have been some major organizer to pull that off.

​I enjoyed WAR OF THE WIVES even though some parts were a bit hard to believe.  I actually didn't like ​the two wives, Selina and Lottie. They both were self-centered and if you ask me a bit naive.  How could they not know? Their children were a bit odd as well.

If you need a light, entertaining read, I suggest reading WAR OF THE WIVES.  The ending was heartwarming and one that had yet another surprise. 4/5  

This book was given to me free of charge and without compensation by the publisher in return for an honest review.
