Paige Turned by Erynn Mangum - REVIEWED

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Paige Turned
TH1NK (April 1, 2014)
Erynn Mangum


A few things about her:

So, if we were having this conversation in person, we would probably be hanging out at Starbucks or one of the cute coffeehouses in town. I’m nuts about all things coffee, I’m crazy about all things pink and girly, and I love, love, love the Food Network! I’m married to my best friend and the most amazing guy ever, Jon. He is amiable toward coffee, does not like anything pink or girly and tolerates the Food Network. So, we make a good match! In July 2010, we became parents to one of the funniest, cutest, sweetest little guys in the whole world (and nope, we aren’t biased at all!), our Nater-Tot, who is legally known as Nathan. Most days, I’m cleaning up messes, making goofy faces, trying to fit some writing in, and just LOVING the life that God has given me!


Despite her valiant efforts, Paige Alder seems stuck in chaos. Her new job as youth intern keeps her hopping from coffee shop to coffee shop all summer long, but at least she’s loving the one-on-one time she gets to spend with the girls. The unfortunate side-effect is that now, four weeks of laundry fills her apartment. Plus, she barely has time to help her sister and best friend with their weddings! And even worse? Something is definitely wrong between her and Tyler. She apologized for what he thought he saw happen with Luke. Can’t they move past it? Or could there be something he’s not telling her—something that could change everything?

My Thoughts:
Eventually is my least favorite word ever.  I’m with the people at Nike on this one. Just do it, for Pete’s sake.”  (p 41)

I totally adore Paige Alder!!  She is so real (for the most part) in her relationships!  She has learned to be more honest with herself and others, and that is really important considering the fact that her sister and best friend are getting married and she is sorting through her own relationship crisis! 

I love, love, love the way Paige takes such tender care of the young ladies she works with and ministers to.  I love the way she is there for her friends an eats ice cream and laughs until she can barely breathe! I love the snarky way she thinks  and responds to things, and most of all, I love that Erynn Mangum’s books make me laugh and teach me deep truths all at the same time!

You really need get to know Paige Alder folks!  She is a really special lady who is learning how much she is loved by God and how tenderly He takes care of her.  This is a fabulous series! You can go HERE to read my review of Paige Rewritten.
