Love Changes Everything

I received a copy of LOVE CHANGES EVERYTHING: FINDING WHAT’S REAL IN A WORLD FULL OF FAKE by Micah Bertaeu from Revell in exchange for an honest review.  It includes a forward by Jentezen Franklin.

I found this book refreshing in the light of other “self-help” books that deal with “true love” and “soul mates.”  I’m not saying true love and soul mates don’t exist.  I just don’t care for a lot of those books that make it seem as if you should dive into a relationship with the first person who makes eye contact with you. 

This book talks about the kind of love that you need, the kind that helps you grow, that helps you to help other people.  Love should make you the best version of yourself.  It shouldn’t bring you down.

Ooh, I loved this book!  The chemistry between Henry and Sophie flows well.  It never felt forced, nor did it ring with insta-love.  There’s enough adventure and action to keep the story moving.  At times, its more an adventure novel than a romance.  The world building is superb.

I received a copy of FINDING LADY ENDERLY by Joanna Davidson Politano from Revell in exchange for an honest review.

I planned to just read a few chapters, but ended up reading into the night.  I’d expected a Christian historical romance, but this is so much more than that.  There was plenty of mystery to keep me guessing, yet it never felt frustrating.  There was excitement in every chapter.  I loved that the main character started out as a rag peddler.  I’d never read a book about a rag peddler before!

This book brings to life London of the 1800s.  If you’re looking for an adventure, look no further.

Matt Cox is a master when it comes to writing an intriguing middle grade book.  He has the voice down.  He has the feelings of attitudes.  I really liked that the main character (Kelly) is interested in her parents.  A lot of middle grade books have the character outright hating his or her parents, or disregarding them altogether. 

This is a fresh, original take on superheroes, perfect to go along with the superhero movies that are so popular right now. 

This is the first book, so that’s exciting.  We get more Ubergirl!

(The cute illustrations are done by Anna Grey.  They’re colorful and great for catching a child’s attention.)

This is such a cute book.  Its perfect for little kids who are learning to love books, and it will be enjoyed by adults during read-aloud times as well.  I’m planning to share this with my son when he’s older.  He loves country settings, and I know other children who do too.  Five stars.

THE MASTER KEY by T. K. Toppin

This book has everything about Josie that I loved in the first installment.  She was still quirky and lovable, but with flaws that enhanced her personality. 

I loved the role the great-niece played in the story.  Overall, if you like past versus present tales, this is one for you.  Its unique to keep you guessing, but contains everything you love in a good story.

This book starts off with a bang and doesn’t let go!  I didn’t set aside enough time to read this and ended up staying up until 2am to finish as much as I could read. 

Josie is spunky, a real heroine to root for, flaws and all.  She knows what she wants and works to get it.  She reminded me a lot of the heroines in the Lords of the Underworld series.  5 stars!  I’m excited to have the second installment and can’t wait to start it.
