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

Books from March (Pt. 1)

The Power of Six
The Second book in the Lorien Legacies serious and a really fun and adventurous book.  I read the first one a couple of weeks ago, I am Number Four, and really liked that book also. 
John Smith must leave Paradise, Ohio now, because of all the destruction. He, Six, and Sam leave  hoping to find the other four and along the way hid from those who are searching for them.  Not only do they have to hid from Mogdorians, but also the authorities of the US who think they are terrorist.
Number Seven is also hoping to reunite with the others, but can't leave the convent until she is 18.  She is stuck feeling hopeless and useless, with no training and a distracted guardian, who was suppose to train her to battle the Mogdorians.
~There is cussing in this serious and also a lot of drama centered around relationships and going back and forth between liking this girl and that girl.  There is some flirting and kissing (one kiss in particular that I didn't like and feel was inappropriate). 

I really liked this book!  It reminds me a lot like The Giver, where the people are controlled by the Officials who choose who you marry, what you will eat, where you will work, and how long you will live. Though in this book they do have feelings. 
Cassia is happy and content with her life and trust everything to the Officials, until she sees two different faces for her match.  She now is face with a hard decision that won't go away, will she marry Xander or Ky?  The Officials never make mistakes and Xander is suppose to be her Match, but her feelings for Ky are budding...
The whole society seems to fall apart for Cassia and the once perfect life, where the Officials make the decisions for her, isn't so perfect anymore.
