Book Review: Dandelion Dust by Faith Potts

During Black Friday last year, I purchased a Christian YA romance novella I had my eye on for awhile, along with a slew of other indie books. Because the novella is set during the summer, I forced myself to wait until the weather in NC finally warmed up. I’m happy to say that Dandelion Dust was totally worth the wait… so worth it, in fact, that I read it all in one day! 🙂



Charity and Ryder

GAH, could these two be any more adorable?! ❤ Their heart melting love story tore. me. to. pieces. Their chemistry together was impeccable. They were also super relatable, as they realistically portrayed the turbulence of emotions loving someone can put us through. Very well done, and I can’t wait to read more contemporary romance by this author!

The Traven Family

Ryder’s family was well-written and each family member has a unique personality that makes you feel like you know each one of them by the end of the story. My heart ached for them throughout the conflict of the book, and I cried tears of joy with them when God makes a way for them. And y’all, books rarely make me cry.

The Writing

For there not to be a whole lot going on with the plot other than the focus on Ryder, this book had me invested from the Prologue. Faith Potts has an excellent talent for the written word at such a young age, and she has a brilliant future ahead of her as an author. I can’t wait to read more from her in the future!


Rating: 5 out of 5.
