One Paris Summer

One Paris Summer

On 7/20 Faith McLaughlin wrote: Please excuse this short review. I’m not near my laptop right now so I’m having to use my phone. I loved this book! Honestly, the main reason I wanted to read it was the topic of Paris, which is my absolute bucket list dream trip. The setting, the romance, the way the author deals with divorce…all ...

The Curse of Crow Hollow

On 8/5 Faith McLaughlin wrote: There is a witch in the mountains, who some say deal with demons. She will curse anyone who gets close enough. Four teenagers decide to stay the night in the mountains and they end up too close to this town legend. Are they cursed or is there another reason they’re acting strange? I loved the beginning ...

Center of Gravity

Center of Gravity

On 7/29 Faith McLaughlin wrote: I wasn’t sure how I would feel about this book since it was more of an adult topic and I usually stick to ya but I loved it! In my opinion, it was the perfect psychological thriller. It makes you question your life and the people you surround yourself with. It made me wonder how well I really know ...

Whenever You Come Around

Whenever You Come Around

On 7/13 Faith McLaughlin wrote: his book is about Charity Anderson, an author from Kings Meadow. Charity leaves her Boise home to write her new romance novel and ends up running into her old high school crush, Buck Malone.

A Sparrow in Terezin

A Sparrow in Terezin

On 6/25 Faith McLaughlin wrote: I think I loved this book even more than the first one! The way Kristy combines the past and the present is just amazing. I don’t want to give too much away but the story tells of Sera in the present day and Kája in 1942. I love the stories and how they’re intertwined and it’s full of faith, love, ...

Summer by Summer

On 5/18 Faith McLaughlin wrote: I still have a hard time forming an opinion about this book. I didn’t hate it but I didn’t love it either. The first part seemed a little too slow and I was waiting for something more exciting. Then when it got to the action part of the story, it seemed like things were too fast, even concerning ...

Lizzy & Jane

Lizzy & Jane

On 3/23 Faith McLaughlin wrote: I really enjoyed this book. I loved the relationship between the sisters and being a culinary student, I loved the focus on food. I loved how their family came back together through a tough situation. I also loved the references to Austen’s books. Overall, a really good read! :) Sorry I don’t have ...

Both of Me

Both of Me

On 2/26 Faith McLaughlin wrote: I really loved this book! I hate reading books when I’m busy because I feel like when I take a long time to read a book, it makes the book feel slow and lowers my enjoyment. I did read this book when I was busy so it did take a while but I still loved it! Elias was a character you couldn’t help but ... Review for Both of Me

All's Fair in Love and Cupcakes

All's Fair in Love and Cupcakes

On 12/27 Faith McLaughlin wrote: While I did enjoy this book as a light, fun read, some of the storyline just seemed a little too predictable and "fluffy" for lack of a better word. The only way I know how to describe it is like when you watch a movie on a channel like Hallmark. A lot of the movie will be devoted to telling the story ...

Motherless

Motherless

On 11/21 Faith McLaughlin wrote: It’s hard to put this book down. It’s also hard to give a review of this book without giving too much away. It’s about two siblings dealing with the loss of their mother. It got confusing at times and it’s one of those books you try to figure out the whole time you’re reading it. Even though ...

The Princess Spy

The Princess Spy

On 11/21 Faith McLaughlin wrote: This retelling of the Princess and the Frog turned out to be really charming! It sort of reminded me of The Princess Bride, from what I’ve seen of it, with the sword fighting and the romance. It seemed a little bit slow in some parts but it was nice to have that instead of the normal insta-love in ... Review for The Princess Spy

Hit

Hit

On 10/21 Faith McLaughlin wrote: I don’t really know what to say for this book besides I wanted to love it. It wasn’t my favorite but I still liked it. The characters didn’t really connect with me. They seemed too one-dimensional. Also, I was left at the end wanting to know more and wanting to know exactly what happens. Instead, ... Review for Hit by Lorie Ann Grover

Destined for Doon

Destined for Doon

On 9/21 Faith McLaughlin wrote: I loved this book! It seemed like it was focused more on Mackenna and Duncan’s story even as it’s showing the “zombie fungus” and how it’s affecting the kingdom. At first, I wasn’t sure how I would like that because I think Veronica is my favorite character but I ended up loving it! I can’t ... Review for Destined for Doon by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon

The Confession

The Confession

On 9/19 Faith McLaughlin wrote: I enjoyed this book but not as much as I thought I would. Maybe I’m just more suited to the young adult genre but it took me a while to get interested in the plot of this book. Once I did, it was an easy read and I enjoyed it but it wasn’t my favorite because it just didn’t keep me interested from ... Review for The Confession by Robert Whitlow

MindWar

MindWar

On 8/11 Faith McLaughlin wrote: I wasn’t sure what to expect with this book because to me, it seemed like a book geared toward more of a male video-game loving audience. I want to apologize right now for judging this book in that way because it completely wasn’t. While I loved this book, I’m pretty sure I could hand it to my ... Review for Mindwar by Andrew Klavan

The Butterfly and the Violin

The Butterfly and the Violin

On 7/17 Faith McLaughlin wrote: I absolutely loved this book! I haven’t read a lot of historical books, so I wasn’t sure how I would like it but it was just beautifully written. Everything from the harsh realities of the camps, to the more modern story of Sera and William was amazing in detail. I loved how everything was connected ...

Running Lean

On 6/24 Faith McLaughlin wrote: First of all, I really loved the cover of this book. I completely fell in love with Stacey and Calvin’s relationship. I loved that the author showed us both of the main characters minds, letting us know what each character was thinking and feeling. Self esteem issues affect a lot of people today because ...

On 3/7 Faith McLaughlin wrote: I really enjoyed this book! I found that I could relate to Veronica and her love of books and I loved the friendship between her and Mackenna. I think the cover is gorgeous and it just makes you want to travel to Scotland! I liked Duncan, so much so that I actually think he overshadowed Jamie a little.I ...
