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 Hunger Games

Katniss has always had a hard life, ever since her father died.  She had to hunt for food, trying to keep her sister, her mother, and herself alive.  Life became a routine for her, hunting with her friend Gale and then brining that home to help feed all the hungry people in their district. But that changes the day of the reaping when her young sister, the only person she truly loves now that her father is gone, Prim, is called as the girl of their district to fight in the hunger games. Katniss offers to go in for her, leaving her home and family, mostly likely never to return.  But her last promise to her sister is to try very hard to make it back.
 Peeta is also chosen from their district, but Katniss hardly knows him except as the boy who saved her life because of his kindness in giving her food when she was close to death.
After all the fuss and training Katniss is soon in the arena fighting for her life.  Will she make it out alive even though everything and everyone seems against her? 
I really enjoyed this book!

Catching Fire~
This is the second book in the Hunger Games.  Katniss has lived through the Hunger Games and made history with bringing Peeta out with her also, the first time two people have ever came out alive.  But the capital thinks she has rebelled and she has to prove to the other districts that she was madly in love with Peeta, instead of rebelling against the capital, or her family will die.  But the districts have already started an uprising and nothing can stop as to teach everyone a lesson and to remind them who is the strongest, the capital brings Katniss and the other districts remaining victors back into the arena.  And now chances for Katniss coming out alive again seem impssoible so she puts all her strength into saving Peeta and to make sure he gets out alive. 
I really enjoyed this book also!
