This book was really hard for me to rate I did liked it a lot I simply LOVED some of the characters in this story and it could have been a 5 stars book but all that talk about God and prayers was definitely not for meLet me get this strait it s not that I don t believe in God truth being told I don t now how much I do either but I don t like reading about this subject and I had to skip entire paragraphsExcept for this little discomfort the book was amazing that s why the high ratingIf there were crickets in the room they would have provided the soundtrack to the silence that hung so loudFinley I loved Finley and BeckettThey were so cute and funny I laughed at their jokes and couldn t wait for them to realize how great they were together I wanted to be their friend because I loved

my hand and pulled me along They ll probably send me a thank you note Also Finley was smart and cute and different from all the other girls he had seen I could understand why a guy like him could like a girl like her It was not just that she was normal and that she was playing hard to get it was the way she talked to himthey were paying the same game talking the same language they were like two pieces of puzzle perfectly fitting together And I loved them bothAre you here about the pigMrs DoyleNo I cast a glace over my shoulder Though I brought one with meFinleyThere were so many funny scenes involving them and I laughed so much that I could almost forget about the Christian references in the book AlmostAnd there was Mrs Sweeney and her taleShe was cold in the outside but as warm as summer sun in the inside She had such a tragic destiny and I wanted so badly to change something in her life to bring some joy into her last days to make her smile to give her a bit of happiness as a last gift but I think Finley was better at itShe and Finley were a perfect match as well The way they didn t like each other in the beginning the funny little fights they had the way they responded one to another with the same amount of sarcasm They were both lovely and they both broke my heart with their painAre you ready for me to read Finley I took her outstretched cup and placed it on the bedside tableI was ready ten minutes ago If you wait any longer I ll have time to write a novel meselfIf I had one word to describe this book it would be touching because it touched my heart in a way I didn t think it would be able to and I m really glad I read this book Review originally posted at ReadingAfterMidnightcom Book Source ARC via NetGalleyBlog EN Facebook Twitter Tumblr Bloglovin Blog RO This was not the light fluffy read I thought it was going to be It tackled several heavy topics which made for a much deeper meaningful read Full RTC Wow Yeah So How do I say this I unladylike fell head over heels in love with this book You Dance and Cultural Diversity know that happy place everyone has Well this book took me to mine in a smooth long and laughable journey Mrs Sweeney had me choked up I had so much sympathy and admiration for her as a person and if her sister hadn t shown and offered her the forgiveness she seeked I would have had some serious assicking to do When she went a piece of my heart went with her I was so sad until I imagined her harrassing everyone up there and that had me in stitches I new Beckett was genuine from the start Finley got me so frustrated and annoyed at times She s meant to be a heiress herself and all she does is compare herself to others when she s not exactly lower down in the social class scale is sheOverall though Loved this book it was cheesy at times but it had a sense of normalcy too it that you find yourself able to relate to it and get into the story uite easily Wow This book was so much than I was expecting The cover makes you think it s going to be a light romance and the synopsis doesn t really tell you how serious the subject matter is or how much truth is spoken in the words of this storyAt its core There You ll Find Me is about healing from past wounds Hotel heiress Finley love her name by the way goes to Ireland two years after the death of her brother hoping to escape her home and party girl reputation She s been through therapy but she s still grieving I automatically liked Finley first because of her spunk and later because I sympathized with her pain She s a perfectionist and some of the things she does will really frustrate you You even watch her control freak tendencies slowly screw up her life and you want to reach into the book and shake herAnd while the romance was really uite sweet it wasn t what made me love this book Sure Beckett was adorable and a really nice guy so refreshing to see a nice love interest in a YA bo. In a small cottage house in rural Ireland Finley is forced to face a past she can't outrun When Finley books her trip to the “Emerald Isle” as a foreign exchange student she hopes to create a new identity and get some answers from God After all since her brother’s recent death God seems to have forgotten she even exists Now all she wants to do is let her heart heal see the sights in her brother’s favorite country and work.

L don t think I imagined I was going to love it this much I read it four days ago and I still think about it and smile but let s get down to business here s the reviewThere are times when you like a book because the characters are funny or because the story is goodThere are times when you love a book because you relate to it or maybe because it spoke to youAnd then there are times when a book pulls at your heartstrings and makes you different than what you were before reading it A book that changes your life they call it There you ll find me did that for meIt was so much different than any book I ve read before It was poignant and captivating lyrical and beautiful and much than your ordinary Young Adult book Full review here Two things I love about books is that they take you to places that you have never been and make you feel things that you have never felt I loved this book because not only did it take me to Ireland after reading this I really love to visit Ireland it also made me feel the familiar feeling of loss and painFinley Sinclair was struggling after the death of her brother Will Her brother left a journal documenting his trip to Ireland and how he found God there Trying to find out for herself what her brother discovered there she decided to set off to Ireland On her way there she met the famous Beckett Rush who turned out to be than who she thought he wasFinley had to struggle with a lot of things her brother s death her family school her audition piece a certain boy God and most of all herselfI honestly don t now where or how to begin this This would probably be the longest review I will ever make This book indeed helped me a lot It helped me face the issues in life that I am currently having It touched so many aspects in my life if not allWhen I was reading the book it was as if I was the one narrating the story and not Finley When I started the book I was like okay she met him at the plane and then what But as the story progressed that s when I really got the whole pictureIn the book Finley Pilgrim Snail kept on complaining that no matter how hard she tried calling to God he never answered She felt alone and depressed She developed an eating disorder that she refused to admit even though shenows that its true She was a walking disaster waiting to happen only she was too preoccupied with so many things that she failed to notice itShe was having a hard time accepting her brother s death She refused to let go of the pain the loss and the heartache She found it so hard to let go of her favorite brother Her role model Her goal was to finish the audition piece that she dedicated to Will She hoped that after that everything would go back to normal But things would never go back the way it used to be No matter what she does it would never bring back her brotherYou could either stay or move forward that is one of the lessons I have learned in this book Either you mull over the pain over and over again or you let everything go and let God help you move onThis book helped me overcome my own pain my hurts and my regrets I try and convince myself and others that I have already gotten over the fact that my ex bf had left me and my daughter but I really haven t nor did I really got over my Mom remarrying I do regret not being able to graduate One other important thing that I failed to let go until now is the death of my Dad I just realized after reading this book that I haven t really moved on from his death He was my Will I loved him than anyone else in my family He was my role model I was a daddy s girl I thought I gotten over it a long time ago but I was wrong I didn t deal with it I just supressed it It was my coping mechanism I should have nown but I was too blind to see it but finally I am free all thanks to this bookGod does move in mysterious ways I also thought he wasn t listening to me any but I was wrong He spoke to me He spoke to me through the pages of this book Thank you Ms Jones for making this book I am forever a fanLike Finley I also selected my own verse Here it isLet us not be weary in doing good for at the proper time we reap a harvest if we do not give up Galatians 69Before I end this review I would just like to add that Finley and Beckett were two amazing characters I loved Finely because she was real and vulnerable and so is Beckett Finley and Beckett s love story is inspiring I think I already gave away most of what the story is about in this review I will just leave you guys to discover why their love story is inspiring I hope every girl would get their own Beckett someday Sweet and funny YA at its best 375 starsThe humor was SPECTACULAR and overall this was a really good book I give it slightly less than 4 stars because it didn t uite reach my expectations There was so much touchy feely romance and so little of God because Beckett Rush was on the scene 247 and Finley believed God to have temporarily abandoned her prayers her life It s a regular excuse leaving God on the back burner during the Christian book because the main character simply isn t listeningThat being said this book was very good The romance was okay if a bit much and the story was original I found it difficult to put down The ending was a disappointment with at least two large aspects the novel left unresolved I enjoyed There You ll Find Me However it dumps me back on the hunt for a Christian book with minimal romance between a guy and girl and LOADS of romance between a girl and Jesus Christ. As Beckett Rush’s personal assistant she finds this famous wild child is not uite what he seems And as she grows closer to the mysterious actor her own secrets refuse to stay put As things begin to unravel Finley takes desperate measures to control her own life and fill the empty spaces her brother left behind When it all comes crashing down Finley must discover how to give her past to God if there’s to be any hope in her futu.

Ok and the fact that he s a teen movie vampire heart throb was hysterical There were so many connections between him and Robert Pattinson I just loved it But what made this book go beyond a cute romance was the real issues that Jenny B Jones deals with depression perfectionism eating disorders grief While Finely is no longer outwardly grieving her brother she s still hurting and she channels her pain into outlets of her life than she feels she can control like her weight At first I was a little concerned with the side comments about how much she was exercising and how little she was eating I was afraid that the issue of an eating disorder would never come up but that subtlety really won me over in the end Finley s border line anorexia is such a non issue at the beginning of the book but blows up by the end just like it does in real lifeThere are a lot of books out there about similar subjects but what separates this one from others is the faith that it s based in There s hope found in this book Finley begins her journey in Ireland totally disillusioned with God and her Christian faith she thinks that just because she can t feel Him He s not there that He s taken a lunch break from her life A huge part of her journey is realizing that she can t fix her life only He canThis break from traditional secular values in a YA book was incredibly refreshing It s hard to find faith based YA books Notable exceptions being The River of Time series by Lisa Tawn Bergren and the On The Runway series by Melody Carlson But I think even non Christian teens will be able to relate to Finley and find truth in this storyI highly recommend this to anyone looking for a positive clean read or who enjoys emotionally captivating stories in sweet romantic packages I m upset because I really wanted to like this book It s a young adult novel following an eighteen year old girl Finley Sinclair as she copes with the loss of her older brother while living with her host family in Ireland on a foreign exchange program excursion There s also a teen heartthrob Hollywood bad boy serving as Finley s love interest named Beckett Rush and yes my apprehension was strong about that aspect So Finley is a Christian And it may seem like a silly reason but that s the main reason why I so desperately wanted this book to be good I m a Christian so I want to read books from the perspectives of Christians without them being labeled as a religious book There You ll Find Me is labeled as juvenile religious so this didn t even accomplish that I could relate to Finley s struggle with feeling like God wasn t speaking to her But that was about itNow I m going to be rather blunt but I think what made this book disappointing for me was the poor writing It s lackluster cheesy insipid and predictable It was young I bet if I d read this when I was fourteen I would ve devoured the whole novel over the course of a weekend Finley deals with a lot in this book but a lot of her struggles weren t delved into too deeply making everything about her seem shallow I didn t have a problem with the fact that she was at times an unlikable protagonist It made her at least seem real But she s warding off Beckett because she doesn t want to repeat all her wild nights and bad choices which never went into any detail so it was hard to gauge just how bad she d really beenFinley is the daughter of a hotel mogul but for all it added to her characterization I wonder why she was written that way she s battling an apparent eating disorder she s hellbent on finding a Celtic cross from her dead brother s journal because she s sure it ll grant her peace and she s on a uest to show Mrs Sweeney an angry old woman with bone cancer Finley was assigned to spend time with for an English classhow that assignment has anything to do with English or literature in general I have no clue that her life is redeemable and forgiveness is possible So in case you re overwhelmed by all of that take heart So was I Too much was going on without focusing on any one thing and it all added up to a boring storyline And I feel so terrible for saying that There s petty girl drama that exists for no other reason than to have a physical human antagonist Antagonists can be inner demons Antagonists can be an eating disorder Anything that eeps the main character from achieving the very thing they re seeking is inherently an antagonist To be honest I only read diligently until page 203 before I skipped to the last few chapters It ended just like I thought it would Wasn t the book for me sadly I thought this was going to be a heart warming story but I wasn t crazy about it at allFirst of all I could not stand Finley The book description said she was witty tough and driven but I thought she was snobby and bitchy She had this been there done that attitude and she was so uick to judge people by stereotypes and label them as a certain type She did that with Beckett She did that with Beatrice She did that with Taylor and the actress types And she did that with Mrs SweeneyWith Beckett the situation was just SO obvious that I cannot believe she could not see it all along especially considering that she was an American heiress who has lived that life before How could she be so blind But of course not She thought she had it all figured outWhich brings me to Remember I was crazy excited about this bookI thought I was definitely going to love this bookTurns out I was absolutely and 100% right Well ind of On her college audition piece for a prestigious music conservatory She plans to use her brother’s journal from his time as Ireland as her guide yet from the moment she boards the plane and sits next to Beckett Rush teen star of the hottest vampire flicks nothing goes according to her well ordered plan The peace and beauty of the Irish village are no match for the chaos that soon becomes her life When she gets roped into working.
