    That is SO COOL that you were quoted in The Prey!! So I just gasped and oooohed for you. I can’t wait to read your review of The Intercept. My dippy dad still hasn’t noticed I bought it for him and put it on his Kindle. Thank you for the Challenge shout-out!

  18. kimbacaffeinate

    Anytime cupcake and hello you need to call your Dad and ask him if the format on his kindle changed or if some thing is wonky with yours!

  19. Holly

    Ooh, you got Dare You To!!!! I’m jealous! I also joined the NA challenge this week. It was too perfect considering I’ve already read several this year.
