Finding Jesus: A Review

On each page of Finding Jesus, the Son of God is hidden in a crowded scene--from a rock concert to a wedding to a grocery store. The objective for the reader is to "find Jesus" in the detailed illustrations--and it's not always easy, what with Jesus's propensity for walking on water and turning the other cheek!

If you ever liked Where’s Waldo this is for you. Finding Jesus is exactly that, find him in a crowd. There are sixteen scenes to find him in. I’ve always liked this types of books they are fun to see what else is in the crowd. Like one scene is a movie theater filled pop culture references and then there is Jesus. It was really fun. And a book that is categorized as religious humor, don’t worry. It is tastefully done and nothing offensive inside.

I received this from the blogging for books program for my honest review.

The Princess Spy: A Review

Margaretha has always been a romantic, and she hopes her newest suitor, Lord Claybrook, is destined to be her one true love. But then an injured man is brought to Hagenheim Castle, claiming to be an English lord who was attacked by Claybrook and left for dead. And only Margaretha—one of the few who speaks his language—understands the wild story.
Unable to pass his message on to her father, the duke, Margaretha convinces herself “Lord Colin” is just an addled stranger. But when Colin asks her to spy on Claybrook as repayment for retrieving a lost heirloom, Margaretha discovers that she might be very wrong about both Colin and her potential betrothed.
Warning: This is a 5th book in a companion series, so if you don’t want to know what happens to the other characters, warning.

This story is about Margaretha, and Colin a stranger trying to find a man who killed his sisters friend and his friend. I really did enjoy The Princess Spy, it’s funny, it has action, it has the hot guy and the damsel in distress who isn’t really in distress. Margaretha is really strong, she was the funny one.

But, I do have to say The Princess Spy was a little basic, like I stated before it has the action, hot guy and the damsel, and your generic bad guy. And I did have a problem the title is The Princess Spy and to avoid spoilers Margaretha spies a disappointing amount. I feel the book could have been turned into two books or one really short one, it didn’t really seem to stick to one thing.

I did really like Margaretha and Colin together, it was cute them being friends and falling in love. Maybe just maybe, I will look into the other books in this series.

I was given this book for my honest review from BookLook Bloggers. (booklookbloggers.com)
