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 Maze Runner:
I finished this book a few weeks ago.  I really liked it.
It was about a group of boys who were placed in the 'glade'.  A big place that is almost like a prison for teen boys.  No way for escape, only the Maze that is on the outside of the big walls.  Everyday a big door opens for the gladers to search the Maze and then the door closes for the night.
Thomas comes just like all the other gladers did.  Through a big elevator that comes from the ground, with his memory erased.  But Thomas is different.  He feels like he knows the place and even some of the gladers say they have seen him before.
Thomas triggers the end of the glade.  Will the gladers be able to accomplish what they had hoped to do from the beginning...find a way out of the Maze?

The Scourge Trials:
This book is the second book in the Maze Runner series.
Thomas and his friends thought they were through with all hardships, but they were wrong.  Everything about the W.I.C.K.E.D. program is mysterious and things they thought were real they aren't sure if they are and they can't tell the good guys from the bad guys.
Now they must go through another trial...the scourge.  This time it is promised to be much harder.  Will they be able to do it and how many more of them must die, to accomplish what W.I.C.K.E.D. hopes to accomplish?

Because of Mr. Terupt:
This book was amazing.  Another read-out-loud for school that had me at least in tears.
This story is about the teacher Mr. Terupt who comes along side each of the children in his class and makes a difference in their lives. The children don't know how much they need him and love him until an accident happens...
