Everbound

Spoiler Alert!: Don't read this if you're still planning on reading Everneath!

It's been two months since Jack was taken to the tunnels in place of Nikki Beckett, and it's starting to seem as though she's losing him to the Everneath. He isn't always lucid when he comes to visit her in her dreams. Nikki knew that this day would come, that Jack would slowly lose himself and his life in the tunnels, but she's not ready for it. She knows that she must find Cole and his band and figure out a way to get to the Everneath and rescue Jack before it's too late. When she finally does find Cole, he refuses to take her to the Everneath, until she blackmails him into going. The Everneath isn't quite what Nikki was thinking it would be, there are dangers she could never have imagined. And there's also a bounty on her head. But with Max, Cole and Ashe, a friend of Cole's, Nikki is ready to take on whatever danger she has to, including the Queen, in the name of loving Jack.

When I finished Everneath, I knew that I had to know what happened in the rest of Nikki and Jack's story. I loved how Jack at the end gave his life for Nikki, and how she knew that there really wasn't anything that she could do about it, but become his anchor the way that he was an anchor for her during the feed. I really like Nikki, I liked how Cole becomes a hero for her in this book, even though he's told her that there aren't heroes. You don't see a lot of Jack in this one, but he's still great in the parts that he is in. I liked the plot, and all of the detail in the Everneath. I was super amazed at the ending, I didn't see it coming at all! Can't wait to read more. This book is basically clean, there were a few mild swear words. 

I was able to borrow this book from my local library.

Blog Tour - Stu Stories: The Adventures of Dirt Clod and His Sidekick Bird Bones

About the book: Stu Sanderson is no ordinary eighth-grader. Not only is he seven feet tall, but he also vanishes into thin air, duels knights and ninjas, lifts the downtrodden, and woos the best-calved girl in school. Become a middle-grade legend with Stu and his sidekick, Bird Bones, on the journey of a lifetime in “Stu Stories.”

My review: This is a fun book written for middle grade boys. It doesn't seem as though there are all that many written for this group, so I always enjoy seeing new ones. 

I liked the way this one is written. Stu is who the book is about, but the way it's written is through the eyes of his friend, Bird Bones. That makes the things that happen to Stu even more funny because you don't know how the things happened. 

This book reminded me a little bit of "Sideways Stories from Wayside School," because it's a collection of several stories that kind of fit together to make a whole story, but they also stand on their own. I thought the stories…

Favorite Friday - Relative Race

Our family doesn't watch very much TV at all. Most of what we watch airs on BYUTV. We are big Studio C fans at our house. And this show, Relative Race is one of our very favorites. We recently re-watched the whole first season because the second season starts on Sunday and we couldn't wait! 

This show is a reality type show. There are 4 couples who start on one side of the country and race to the other side, meeting new relatives along the way. Last season they took their cell phones away very first thing and they had to use paper maps to get where they needed to go, which was sometimes a problem for all of the contestants. Anyway, each team is given a specific city to go to. They have to make it to the city, then take and send a selfie with a city sign. Once that happens they get a challenge to complete and then they are given their relative's address. Then...they have to spend the night with their relatives, which seems to me like it could be very awkward! But last season…

Changed Through His Grace

About the book: "Have you been changed by grace?" In this insightful book, Brad Wilcox explores this life-altering question in depth. Christians throughout the centuries have used grace to describe God's favor, goodwill, and love. However, grace is more than a description of God's attributes. It is the help, power, and strength He offers as we choose to engage with Him in striving to attain those attributes. It is the help, power, and strength He offers as we choose to engage with Him in striving to attain those attributes. Grace is different from the Atonement. It is not Christ's suffering, death, and Resurrection. Rather, grace is the power that flows from those sacred moments. Grace is not a priesthood ordinance, but essential ordinances invite greater and greater endowments of grace into our lives. Grace is a divine gift, but like any gift, it must be received.

In this book, Brother Wilcox uses real-life stories and personal experiences to demonstrate how we c…
