Girl Birthday

Happy August everyone! I can't believe summer is almost over like didn't it just start last month?
Well anyhow.

Recently I finished reading A Time to Speak; the second book in The Out of Time Series by Nadine Brandes. Yes I know I'm a little late. But I'm not a very avid reader, okay?

But guys, I loved it. Like LOVED it. I didn't think I would like it as much (because Jude.... *cries* he was like my favorite character) but it blew my mind. I love Nadine's ability to craft a story and include such a great message.

I think these two statements sum up the main theme of the book:
"Love God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength. I don't think He wants us to keep asking and dwelling on His specific plan or will. He wants us to dwell on and seek Him. Then our decisions will be made from our love for and relationship with Him. We are free to take action in whatever means we want as long as we seek Him and allow Him to guide us." ~Solomon Hawke in A Time to Speak
"The promise of uncertainty changes how I live. It urges me to live... more as if the very seconds prior to every sunset will be my last. That's the way its suppose to be. " ~Parvin Blackwater in A Time to Speak 
AND I CAN'T WAIT FOR BOOK THREE! Ah, and have you seen the cover release for it yet? EPIC.

Also, if you haven't read A Time to Die or A Time to Speak, you can find out a little more about them on my recommended book list.

Have a great week everyone!!
