About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Swipe book review

Swipe is a book written for young adults, but grown-ups will want to read it, too.  It's that good.  Logan Langly is quickly approaching his 13th birthday which means he will get The Mark.  The Mark (pictured on the cover above) is a tattoo of sorts in the future which allows you to get a job, purchase items, vote and more.  The problem is that when Logan's sister, Lily, went in to get her Mark 5 years ago she disappeared.  And not only that, Logan believes someone is now watching him, following him, spying on him.  His parents don't believe him; they think he's being paranoid.  The truth is, Logan and two of his friends are unwittingly involved in something much bigger than they know.  When the new girl, Erin, gets involved things really get intense.  You see Erin's father (FBI/secret service type) has been brought in to fix "a problem", and Erin is intrigued enough to find out what exactly that problem is.  Swipe is full of secrets, action, intrigue and spy like adventure.  I couldn't put it down!  The next book in the series will be coming out this Fall and you can bet that I will be one of the first people to get my hands on it.  Great job, Evan Angler!

*I was given a copy of Swipe from Book Sneeze in exchange for my honest opinion.  No other compensation was received.*

Amy- You should read it with Roo! I gave my copy to Mandy so she could read it. Cannot wait to read the next book in the series as there are questions that I need answered! Like right now... Lori
