Reviews by Funto
On 11/20 Funto wrote: Don't let the cover fool you, "Falling Like Snowflakes" is more than a sweet holiday season romance. A lot of the time, I was afraid for the characters yet the book is well balanced in that there are many moments where you'll smile and laugh with them. I liked both the characters of Beau and Eden. But ... Lovely Read - Great characters - Wonderful dialogue
On 10/8 Funto wrote: Reading the very first book in the Chapel Springs Romance series, Barefoot Summer, I was pretty curious about Ryan and the story surrounding his divorce. Even from book one where he only made a couple appearances, the eldest of the Mckinley children immediately catches your attention with his caring ... Fun, heart-melting and very real!
On 9/24 Funto wrote: Love Arrives in Pieces served as a lovely surprise. At first, reading the back cover summary, I feared the story might be déjà vu, reminding me of a few books I had read. However, it was a beautiful story all on its own with very little similitude to anything I'd read. The characters of Stella and ... Lovely story - Beautiful symbolism and themes
On 8/7 Funto wrote: This Fairy Tale Romance Collection (constituting 5 different novels) by Melanie Dickerson was overall a sweet and lovely read. The overall target audience is young adults but I believe these medieval romance novels are stories that everyone can easily enjoy. While there is a slight continuity between ... Christian retelling of everyone's favorite fairy tales
On 4/6 Funto wrote: Meadow and Colin's story is a sweet one. Wanting to make up for his past, Colin longs to earn Meadow's trust. But despite desperately needing his help, she has a hard time trusting him. Raised in an abusive home and having been the object of ridicule in high school by Colin's friends, Meadow is still ... Sweet romance fit for a rainy day
On 1/22 Funto wrote: I was immediately pulled into this riveting tale from the very first page and hardly put it down until it was over. I found the main character, Margaretha, to be endearing. She had a great love for her family and her home and she was quick and willing to help out the stranger, Colin. I liked how Margaretha ... Adventure and Romance
On 8/28 Funto wrote: This was a pretty informative read. In fact, out of all the WWII books I've read, this is the first that was from the perspective of a German fleeing the Red Army. It gave an insight on the condition of the German civilians during the period, as we follow the story of German American, Gisela and Mitch, ... Interesting and informative (though not for the light-hearted)
On 5/24 Funto wrote: I'd heard quite a bit about this book and the one before it, "The Single Woman" so I was quite excited to pick it up. The book did not disappoint and lived up to expectation. The book is a sort of autobiography starting from a disastrous attempt to ride in a plane headed to Las Vegas in spite of her ... I've Never Been to Vegas But My Luggage Has - Funny, engaging, and just plain honest
On 3/26 Funto wrote: This book is just so fun to read! Right from the first page. If you love anything detectivey (that should definitely be a word) or if you're a Sherlock Holmes fan then you'll love this. The culprit was unpredictable and rather original. Overall, I really enjoyed Annie and Taggert's story. Annie is easy ... Fantastic read!
On 9/3 Funto wrote: I loved how nothing about this book was predictable. Little surprises kept popping up and I couldn't but keep reading. And oh, the flashbacks! I really looked forward to those. Apart from the story itself, I especially liked the way it was written. You know you loved a book when you finish it within ... Very enjoyable read!
On 6/25 Funto wrote: If you like a good suspense with a totally unpredictable culprit and a nice romance mixed in, then this book is definitely for you. And if you like anything to do with the FBI and something that looks like the CSI television series you'll love this book. The main character Kariss Walker is extremely ... Unpredictable
On 1/21 Funto wrote: Deep! That's one word to describe this book. I like the way the author took the idea of "eating at the table" and "feeding" people and just expanded on the many implications, physical as well as spiritual. It gave me a whole new insight. I had found Kat Davies to be a little annoying in the first book ... Book Review: Come to the Table - Great sequel!
On 12/29 Funto wrote: I chose to review this translation to see what all the hype was about. As I read The Voice, I have to say that it felt like reading the Bible for the first time in a long time. I actually enjoyed reading the Bible in this translation although at first it took a little getting used to. It basically reads ... The Voice Bible - Review
On 11/13 Funto wrote: If you like a good mystery novel, then this book's for you. The "villain" was hard to work out. The book has quite a couple mysteries (right from the beginning and things that kept popping up) that kept you wanting to know what would happen next. The romance was sweet but I would say it definitely could ... A good mystery novel!
On 9/9 Funto wrote: Quite honestly, I'm one of those people who like their books with a little bit of romance in it and for some reason, the back cover summary of Stand By Me still got my attention. Despite the lack of romance, I still absolutely enjoyed this book. And it's the first Christian fiction I've read with near ... An enjoyable read!
