Reading Challenge Update #5

Heaven Changes Everything by Todd and Sonja Burpo- I am really glad I came across this book. I had no idea it had been written, or others there after the original book of Heaven is For Real. That book really touched my heart and my faith. And this book in turn, really helped me appreciate the first book that much more. This book really talks about what Todd and Sonja Burpo learned from their son and how they have taken those lessons and lived sharing it with others. It is broken down into small chapters and is considered a devotional, but I read it in 3 days.

Crossed by Ally Condie- I liked this book more than the first part. I feel like this is where the action really begins and in Matched we just got the set up. In this book we see the protagonist Cassia really take on the role as the lead and guide us through her journey to find Ky and the Rebellion. I feel like with all dystopian novels you have to keep your mind open to what can and can't be. Some aspects are left rather vague and things always seem to fall into place for the sake of the novel but it doesn't bother me. Also, I liked that the chapters alternated between her point of view and then Ky's. 

What are you reading these days? Anyone else just want to own all the books and stay in bed for days with your dogs and read on?
