Thoughts: I started this book back in October and I enjoyed the concept and premise but just wasn't motivated in my reading. I finally got to finish it and really enjoyed the book. I am now looking at getting the next book in the Jack Spratt series, The Fourth Bear, as I enjoy the fairy tales mixed in with adult humor! I would highly recommend this book for a fun read.

Summary: In Cassia's society, Officials decide who people love. How many children they have. Where they work. When they die. But, as Cassia finds herself falling in love with another boy, she is determined to make some choices on her own. And that's when her whole word begins to unravel.
Thoughts: I enjoyed this book but I think I had higher expectations for it than it lived up to. It is a Young Adult book so I was thinking it would be along the lines of a Twilight or Hunger Games. It was a good read but this story didn't quite work for me as in similar books I have read. I'm sure this won't stop me from getting and reading its sequal Crossed which came out in November.
Those are the books I've read for January. I have started my next two books for February. I am currently reading a church book called The Minister's Wife which is a book about being a minister's wife, the privileges and pitfalls that come with the job. It has been a helpful book so far and enlightening in several ways. I can only hope this book may help me in better serving my husband, church and firstly the Lord.
