Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Spies, Lies, and Allies by Lisa Brown Roberts and hosted by Entangled Teen. I will have a little about the book, an excerpt, a link to my review, and a giveaway.
About Spies, Lies, and Allies:
Summers are supposed to be fun, right? Not mine. I’ve got a job at my dad’s company, which is sponsoring a college scholarship competition. I just found out that, in addition to my job assisting the competing interns, I’m supposed to vote for the winner. Totally not what I signed up for. There’s a crazy guy running the competition like it’s an episode of Survivor. Then there’s Carlos, who is, well, very distracting –– in a good way. But I can’t even think about him that way because Crazy Guy says any fraternizing on the job means instant disqualification for the intern involved. As if that’s not enough, an anonymous weirdo with insider intel is trying to sabotage my dad’s company on social media…and I’m afraid it’s working. Much as I’d love to quit, I can’t. Kristoffs Never Quit is our family motto. I just hope there’s more than one survivor by the end of this summer.
I wanted to do another fun topic today that’s not book related. I have really started to enjoy traveling and I have a bucket list of places I want to visit. I thought I would share some (not all) of them here.

Amsterdam This one is really high up on my list and I’m hoping to make it there in a few years.
Down The TBR Hole is a meme created by lost in a story that revolves around cleansing your TBR of all those books you’re never going to read and sort through it all to know what’s actually on there.
Most of you probably know this feeling, your Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when you’re scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well that’s going to change!
It works like this:
Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
Order on ascending date added.
Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if you’re feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
Read the synopsesof the books
Decide: keep itor should it go
As before, if there are no comments below the cover, I just don’t really remember adding the book to my list. I will be doing 15 again this week.
The Disposables by David Putnam While this sounds good, I just don’t see myself picking it up anytime soon.
Today I thought I would do something a little different. I love music and wanted to share some (not all) of my favorite bands. I’m going to include a video from each one (my own concert footage if I have it).
State Champs I’ve seen them live multiple times and they are one of my favorite live bands. They will be at Warped Tour again this year.
