Hi guys! Today I’m doing something I’ve never done before: participating in a blog tour! I did post a release day blitz for another book a couple of weeks ago, but this is the first blog tour I’ve ever done and it’s honestly really exciting. The best part is that the tour is for one of my favorites books so far this year, Crossing The Line by Meghan Rogers. It’s her debut novel, the first in a series, and I adored it! 😀
So without further ado, let’s get into my stop on the tour! I have a list of Meghan’s top ten favorite things. 🙂
Top Ten List
1. Buffy the Vampire Slayer (and Joss Whedon)—I first discovered the show in eighth grade and it blew my mind. It showed me what storytelling could be and made me seriously want to write.
2. Harry Potter books—Buffy may have made me a writer, but in fifth grade, it was Harry Potter that made me a reader and showed me what books could be.
3. TV in general—Buffy opened the floodgates of TV for me. I love getting to know a group of characters, following them over time, and getting invested in their stories.
4. Winter—The colder, and wetter the better. I’m also in love with cold dreary weather. Even if I have to be out in it.
5. Lion Cubs—The Philly Zoo had lion cubs a couple of years ago and I became obsessed! I mean, come on, look at them!
6. Philly Sports—Baseball and hockey are my favorites, but I kind of love them all.
7. Disney—I love Frozen. And Peter Pan. And the whole Disney World experience. When I sold Crossing the Line I went to Disney World with my family for my birthday.
8. Gummy Bears—I don’t have a huge sweet tooth, but when I get a bag of gummy bears, I tend to eat them all in one sitting and then complain I have a gummy tummy. (This is also why I rarely buy gummy bears).
9. Cheesy fries and Mac & Cheese—These are my food weaknesses. I have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to Mac and Cheese recipes.
But it’s okay because #10 is:
10. Yoga and Running—I never thought I would be a person who lists forms of exercise as one of her favorite things, but it turns out I am. I like yoga because it calms my mind down and I like running because it lets my mind run wild. So, you know, balance!

About The Book
If Jason Bourne were a teenaged girl…
Jocelyn Steely was kidnapped as a child and raised in North Korea as a spy. When her agency sends her to the U.S. to infiltrate the very group her parents once worked for, Jocelyn jumps at the chance to turn double agent and finish off her kidnappers once and for all. She convinces the head of the American spy agency to trust her, but it’s not quite as simple as that: Jocelyn has to fight the withdrawal symptoms from the drug that the North Koreans used to keep her in line, and her new fellow spies refuse to trust their former adversary. Worst of all, there might be some new information to uncover about her parents – if she even wants to find out.
This action-packed spy thriller is part Gallagher Girls, part Alex Rider, and part Bourne Identity.

And that’s all for my stop on the blog tour!
Have you read Crossing The Line? Is it on your TBR? If you have read it, what did you think? I’d love to know! 🙂
I’ll be spending my day reading more of The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey. My review should be up later, if everything works out. 🙂
Until next time…
