Process to filter from collection

I made a default app from a SharePoint list of books. I want to be able to easily search (filter) any of the Sharepoint list columns: Text_Title, Text_Author, Text_Publisher, Text_Description (multi-line), Text_Location (choice), and Text_Course (lookup). But, from what I understand, and you may have guessed, this isn't possible due to the multi-line, choice, and lookup columns. I've seen it hinted elsewhere you can create a collection, then search (filter) the collection as a work-around. I, however, am going around in circles trying to find the right 'steps' to accomplish this from scratch. Can anybody point me to, or provide here the instruction to accomplish this.
