I am so excited to share this book review!!  I've been following GirlDefined for a few years now and have enjoyed every book they have published and have grown and been encouraged so much by their ministry.  I signed up to be apart of their launch team for their new devotional and was so beyond excited to be chosen!  This journey has been so exciting and fun and I'm so glad I got a chance to be a part of it! I love Kristin and Bethany’s heart for the Lord.   They’re desire to put Him above all else in their lives and to share and encourage girls and young women to do the same.   The thing that first stood out to me as I began to read their Shine Bright Devotional was this line in their intro- “just keep in mind that this devotional isn’t intended to replace time in God’s word each day; it’s meant to supplement it.” I think this is so important to realize as we start each new devotional or christian book.   We are meant to read God’s word and be in daily fellowship with Him.   T


The Mysterious Benedict Society:
Reynie, with thousands of other kids takes strange quizzes and meet strange people.  Reynie is only 1 of the 4 people who pass out of thousands: Kate, Sticky, and Constance.  Each kid has a different and unique kind of skill.  These 4 kids meet Mr. Benedict, and two other nice, but weird people.  Mr. Benedict makes these kids into top secret agent.  To stop some danger that is happening.  But this mission is very dangerous and can cost theses children their lives.  Will they be able to make it and  stop The "Whisper"?  I LIKED THIS BOOK A LOT!!!!  

EMMY and the Incredible Shrinking Rat:
Emmy use to have a "normal" life, loving parents, friends, and a nice home.  But that all changed when they become rich.  Her parents just start forgetting about her she does not have any friends and feels invisible in school and she has a mean nanny.  At school she makes a friend with a rat, who can talk.  Then one day this boy at school, Joe, strat talking to her, he also heard the rat talk.  That day everything changes and Emmy try to set thing right, and have  her loving parent again.  I enjoyed this book!!

When Calls the Heart:
Elizabeth is a lovely, unmarried school teacher, who gets sent to teach on the Canadian frontier, she has made up her mind NEVER to marry any of those frontiersman. 
Wynn (frontiersman) seeks the same thing NEVER to marry.  Will they change their mind?  I liked this book!!!!


  1. Hi Aylssa, Great job reading all those books. Miss you a lot. Love Grandma

  2. I'm trying to gauge how much you really like each book. I figure Bold capital letters and four exclamation points means it was your favorite of the three, using the term "enjoy" instead of "like" and just two exclamation points means it could be your second favorite, but then again just a generic "like" and four exclamation points on the third book... Any book with a talking rat would be my favorite. I mean come on, I thought I was interesting to talk to, but a rat... I would use Bold capital letters, "like", "enjoy", I'd even make up a word like "fantastical" or something.

    I mean come on, look at your grandmas post, I'd take a talking rat any day. Ha!

  3. Alyssa!!!! Hello there little miss reader! I love seeing all the books you read, it's so great! I hope you're doing well! I miss you!!! Amanda and I hung out a little last night and we were wishing you and Ev were here ;( Love you girlie!
