I was recently introduced to a new young adult series by Ally Condie, which starts with a book called Matched. Here is the summary from Amazon.com in case you would like to read more about the first book:
Cassia has always trusted the Society to make the right choices for her: what to read, what to watch, what to believe. So when Xander's face appears on-screen at her Matching ceremony, Cassia knows he is her ideal mate . . . until she sees Ky Markham's face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black. The Society tells her it's a glitch, a rare malfunction, and that she should focus on the happy life she's destined to lead with Xander. But Cassia can't stop thinking about Ky, and as they slowly fall in love, Cassia begins to doubt the Society's infallibility and is faced with an impossible choice: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she's known and a path that no one else has dared to follow.
Now that I've finished the first book, I've already purchased the second book, Crossed. I just started reading it, so I am anxious to see what happens next!
Once I'm done with the series, I'll be on the lookout for other book recommendations. Let me know in the comments section which books you've enjoyed this year!
The December portion of my happiness project has been focused on spirituality and faith. I am trying to focus on the quote above that says, "If it's meant to be, it will be." Basically, that is my way of remembering that God has a plan for me and all I need to do is accept that and try to follow whatever direction I receive.
Like I said in my last post, I don't want to disrespect anyone else's beliefs, so I'm not going to go into too many details about how I'm working on my spirituality this month. I just wanted to give everyone an update so you know I hadn't forgotten about this blog or my happiness project.
Next month I'll be working on my health & fitness. I figured January is the most popular time to work on these due to the common New Year's resolution to lose weight.
I am looking for some recommendations for bible studies. The last one I did was by Jennifer Rothschild and I enjoyed it. I'm looking into Beth Moore and Joyce Meyer as options for my next bible study. If you've tried one that you would recommend, please let me know in the comments!
My name is Beth and I live in Denver. I am a single lady in my 30's and wanted to start sharing my awesome and amazing life through a blog.
