Remember I was crazy excited about this book?
I thought I was definitely going to love this book.

Turns out I was absolutely and 100% right. Well, kind of. I 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 review:

Wow! This book was so much more 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 story.

At 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,...more

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 me.

Let me get this strait, it's not that I don't believe in God (truth being told I don't know how much I do either), but I don't like reading about this subject and I had to skip entire paragraphs.

Except for this little discomfort, the book was amazing, that's why the high rati...more

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 pain.

Finley 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...more

I thought this was going to be a heart-warming story, but I wasn't crazy about it at all.

First 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 quick 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. Sweene...more

Hani bazı kitaplar vardır, eline aldın mı ve daha okumaya başlamadan "İşte bu." dersin. "Beni Orada Bulacaksın" da o kitaplardan.. Nasıl anlatsam bilmiyorum ama çok hoştu, çok güzeldi. Dün gece kitabı bitirdiğim de, durup düşünmeden edemedim. Kitabın bölümlerini, en önemlisi "bir şeylere olan inancımı" tekrar gözden geçirdim. Yani bir kitap gibi değildi, okurken resmen uyarladım hayata. :)

Zaten İrlanda'ya olan müthiş bir hayranlığım var ve bu kitabı almamdaki en önemli etkenlerden biri de oydu....more

I wanted to read this book so when I saw this book up on netgalley, I couldn’t deny the temptation. I requested it in a heartbeat. And I’m so glad I was approved.

I do admit that it didn’t entirely meet my expectations, needless to say it was still a good and refreshing story. I kinda like Caleb + Kate (a Christian fiction too) better but the plot of There You’ll Find Me is charming with a tinge of realism. Some may have an impression that books like these tend to be preachy, which is not. Regard...more

Original post at One More Page

When I was younger, I used to write stories about a group of friends who lived in Ireland. It was just a random country I picked out in the world atlas, and I thought I liked the sound of Ireland as a setting. Of course, I really knew nothing of the country then, and it wasn't until later on that I read and watched some stuff about Ireland on TV that I realized none of what I wrote was even the least bit realistic. But my recent trip to Europe got me to meet a YFC m...more

This is such a beautiful book.

I can't really find the words to describe my feelings after reading, but I can say this: There You'll Find Me is heart wrenching and emotional. It's a wonderful story about loss and love and one girl's struggle to put back the pieces of her life shattered by a tragedy.

I had to pause for a while and gather my bearings after I finished reading this. I was a bit misty eyed when I leafed through the last page.

One of the most adorable an...more

Normally, Christian Fiction? Not my thing. And yet, THERE YOU'LL FIND ME has me feeling a bit different. A good portion of it is Finley's struggling to find her center again, her faith. I cannot say that I could connect to her while reading about her struggle but I did believe it. As an MC she's quite different. I liked that she's stand-offish and that she had a goal in mind in everything she did. I enjoyed her trying to find her place... with her family, in her academics, with the new boy she'd...more

Wow. Yeah. So.
How do I say this. I unladylike fell head over heels in love with this book.
You 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 ass kicking to do.
When she went, a piece of my heart went with her. I was so sad until I imagined her ha...more

Yes,I admit I was expecting a good old contemporary romance. But it was so much more than that. I was enjoying it so much I didn't even think about the romance.

Do you remember this scene from Pride and Prejudice?

I felt so good while watching that and through the whole book I had the same feeling,like there is something bigger than me in this world.

Two years ago Finley lost her brother Will and now in her senior year of high school she is in Ireland where her brother was spending...more

*Originally posted on my blog, Read Love

This was my first experience with both NetGalley and Jenny B. Jones (thank you, Thomas Nelson!). I'm happy to report it was a positive one. I don't have a lot of experience reading Christian fiction, so I was a little surprised that There You'll Find Me felt very contemporary. In fact, in the early pages, I was looking for differences to set it apart from similar mainstream releases like Anna and the French Kiss. On the surface, these two titles seemed sim...more

This is one of these books that took me too long to read and Zemira told me that this was a must-read. Finally I got some time and read this book. As expected I was too stupid for not reading it right away.

For starters this story took place in Ireland. I haven't read a lot of books that were placed there. It's always USA or UK so yeah the change of setting was nice. But There You'll Find Me is a story about Finley who is searching for something. After her brothe...more

This is definitely one of the best book i've read. And i could definitely say that i started the year with a BANG! since its one of the first books i've read as the year enters and i'm definitely happy about it definitely not dissapointed!

The past two years have been a struggle for Finley Sinclair as she face the death of his brother, Will on the hands of the terrorists. In a way to fix her life she decided to head to Ireland to finish her senior year and follow her borther's footsteps. Equip...more

Wow!! The charm of Ireland, the angst of young adulthood, and the beautiful craziness of life come together to make this an engaging, moving read! Jenny B. Jones has a winning and creative writing style that somehow combines humor and sincerity in a way that keeps the pages turning and the journey going. And this is one journey that I'm so very glad I took!

There You'll Find Me features quite a cast of quirky characters, many of whom charm the reader's heart despite their unique first impressions...more

A brilliant, upbeat story about a teen's search for peace and answers after losing a close sibling, and I enjoyed it enough to name it a favorite. First YA listed among my favorite books. Finley was witty, sassy, and fun. I enjoyed her even more than the hero (which is rare), and easily related to her need for control. As Finley realized her destructive patterns, I saw parallels in my own life. Books don't usually minister to me on such a level, and it was a huge surprise, coming from a YA.

I can’t believe that I waited so long to get to this book. It absolutely blew me away.

Finley was such a real character; she grieved in more ways than one and with no one to really turn to (especially in a foreign country), she looked for her faith in the landscape of Ireland, where her murdered brother, Will, felt closest to his own faith. She struggled to understand the beauty that Will saw while he studied abroad, and my heart ached for her as she missed the importance and beauty of life in th...more

3/5

I liked the overall message of the story. I think the intentions behind the story are applaudable; and are relatable to some extent: having doubts, feeling alone, lost, angry, questioning ones' faith, and so on. Also, I liked the meaning behind Finley's name, and I liked reading about her journey; YET I somehow still felt like there was something missing. The story, when it came full circle, didn't deliver the emotionally powerful punch I was craving.

I think it was because there were too man...more

This is sweet. Its a great setting and Finley is pretty quirky to read. Its not a bad book to end up with. Jenny B. Jones really got the setting of the book in Ireland. The array of characters all have a voice + are written really well. The story line has some unbelievable elements to it. Some of the movie set stuff, and Beckett conveniently staying at the same hotel when all the other actors aren't is a little far fetched. However, the story flows and looking past that helps. It will definitely...more

Summary: Finley is going to Ireland as an exchange student, hoping to feel closer to her brother who was killed in Afghanistan and who had also spent time there; she is lost, adrift from friends on earth and angry at a God who doesn't seem to hear her. But her plans are radically altered when she ends up sitting next to movie star Beckett Rush on the plane. As the pressure in Finley's life mounts,

Some people have this uncanny ability to get you laughing quite easily, and isn’t that a wonderful thing? Laughter just makes everything better, you’re happy, you’re comfortable, and you really don’t want it to end. Those are pretty much my feelings about books written by Jenny B Jones. The thing that is really a fascinating combo though is that right along with the laughter in that place where you are happy and comfortable, Jenny introduces you to characters that have “stuff” that is pretty ser...more

There's always a book that you manage to never forget. There's always a book that stays in your soul forever. There's always a book that you remember and the oddest times. There's always a book that you just think about and love. There You'll Find Me is one of those books. Which means... 5 out of 5 Irish stars!

What they didn't mention in this summary is how awesome Finley is. She's used to fame. She's not fazed by sitting next to a really good-looking celebrity, aka Beckett Rush. I love her snar...more

I’m not a big fan of contemporary fiction. I’m more of an escapist reader who prefers fantasy, paranormal romance and science fiction but my friend KM from One Page at a Time raved about this book and recommended that I read it, and since she has never given me a bad recommendation, I thought I would give it a try. I loved There You’ll Find Me so much. It made me laugh, made me cry, made me think about all the things in my own life that I try to control when I should really just let go and let G...more

Ya lo terminé y sigo llorando por todo lo que me hizo sentir, por todo lo que me hizo reflexionar y más importante aún por todo lo que me hizo recordar.

What an intense book! There is so much going on in this story. Sometimes, I felt like there were too many different aspects of the story, but then everything really ties together in the end.

The romance between Finely and Becket was absolutely swoon-worthy. Who wouldn't want the most gorgeous movie star to also be such an amazing guy on the inside too? It's interesting how this most ultimate of romantic fantasies is in the book along with such traumatic sissuesand experiences that make u...more
