The Weaver ARC Review

Thank you to Netgalley and The Parliament House for a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and feelings are my own.

Most writers choose the endings to their stories . . . most writers are not Weavers.


Laney Holden is a freshman at Madison College whose life goes from normal to paranormal in a matter of seconds. When the antagonist in the book she’s writing shoves her down the stairs at the subway station, she learns she is a Weaver. Weavers bridge the narrow gap between fantasy and reality, bringing their words to life.
Laney soon meets William whom she also suspects is a character from her book—one she’s had a mad crush on since her pen hit the paper. But he’s in danger as her antagonist reveals a whole different ending planned for Laney’s book that involves killing William. Laney must use her writing to save the people closest to her by weaving the most difficult words she will ever write.


THE WEAVER is the first installment of The Weaver trilogy. It is an NA paranormal romance set in a small town on the north shore of Boston. It will leave you wanting more.

– Goodreads

I had so many conflicting thoughts about The Weaver. I wanted to love this story, however, it was more of an eh like. The book wasn’t bad by any means, but by the end I wanted it to be over. It was only 238 pages.

The characters were the biggest issue for me. They all seemed flat and overdramatic, if that can even be a thing? None of them were likable. I felt the two male MCs were boring and stereotypical. Just a normal jock and a normal guy from the 1700s. Nothing special. All of Laney’s friends were annoying. Laney was whiney. I feel like if the characters ahd something to set them apart it would have worked much better.

I loved the premise of a writer being able to weave her story to life. It’s such an interesting concept – one that will probably have me looking for the second book in the series even though I wasn’t a huge fan of the characters.
