Anomaly by Kristen McGee “Thalli has fifteen minutes and twenty-three seconds left to live. The toxic gas that will complete her annihilation is invading her bloodstream. But she is not afraid.”*
Anomaly is a story of love, boundaries, and believing that you are something greater than what society tells you to be. All her life Thalli has been programmed to follow orders and never think outside the box. When she starts questioning her surroundings, her program, and feelings…where she lives, this kind of thinking leads to death. It’s only when she is about to die that she becomes alive.

Together they start a secret club calling The Dating Games, or DG. Their first mission is to help each other get dates for the homecoming dance. The only problem? None of them have dated before! Okay, maybe that’s only one of the many problems they run into… This is the first book of The Dating Games series, written by the popular Christian author Melody Carlson. This is different than anything she’s written before, and it will be interesting to read the upcoming books!

Good Belly Whether you want to start the New Year healthy, are having any sort of stomach troubles, or are just looking for a tasty beverage, you should try out Good Belly Probiotic Juice Drinks. There are so many good things about it: there’s a special kind of probiotic strand in the juice, it’s organic, and comes in either shots or quarts (I tried the quarts in several different flavors and highly recommend them). Some of the drinks are gluten-free and others provide a multivitamin. The only thing that is lacking is that these great-tasting drinks are actually not 100% juice. But because this is an innovative company, I’m sure they’re working towards a wider variety of options. I took Good Belly as part of their 12-Day Challenge and felt much better after doing so. You can also try their 12-Day Challenge and receive coupons by signing up at goodbelly.com.
