Review
I love, love, love this book. Dave Ramsey's program really works, and this book helped my husband and I to pay off a ridiculous sum of debt in a very short time. Dave does a great job of explaining the financial world in terms that are clear and simple. He makes it easy and fun to learn about finances, and how to change your spending behavior. I would highly recommend this book to anyone!   The total money makeover: a proven plan for financial fitness

Such a fun read! If you loved The Hunger Games or Divergent, you would love Red Queen. While there are some details that I didn't enjoy (like some character inconsistencies), it is still an excellent ride. Full of love, war, rebellion, surprise and betrayal..it ends on a great note, leaving you hungry for the sequel! I'll be waiting for its release.   Red queen

I loved this book! People are "matched" based on their genetics, habits and tendencies in order to produce people who are genetically superior. Because of this, there is no disease, or anomalies like colorblindness or cancer. The main character loves her society until she starts wondering and piecing together her lack of freedom and agency. Very enjoyable and well written!   Matched

The Bachelor + Royalty + a social caste system = The Selection. I liked this book, but I think that it is written on a much easier level than some of the other Young Adult Fiction that I've read. I like the general idea of the story, and her main characters are likable. Overall, I think a great read for 9-13 year old girls...but still fun!  The Selection
