Deadly Little Games

I kind of had a mixed review on this book. On the one hand, I didn't realize that it was the newest book in the series, so I guess I had to cut it some slack! On the other hand, I wasn't thrilled with the language used in this book. It wasn't as bad as it could have been, so I did finish it, but I'm not so sure that it was worth it to me. Camelia is a junior in high school, apparently she was stalked by an ex-boyfriend not very long before the story opens, I'm guessing that this was a prior book. Her boyfriend Ben saved her from this stalker and saved her life several times, according to this book. Camelia and Ben both have some interesting abilities. Ben is able to touch people and basically know what's in their head, which turns out to be a problem when Camelia starts thinking about another boy that she dated, who happened to also be Ben's ex-best friend and who also was the person that Ben's ex-girlfriend cheated with. Are you confused yet? It gets worse! Camelia gets these premonitions about things that are going to happen, which is why she was thinking about the other boy in the first place. And then there's her Aunt Alexia, who is in a mental hospital for exhibiting the same abilities that Camelia has. If you want to read this book, it would probably be wise to start at the beginning of the series, as for me, I think this is the only book in this series that I will be reading!

Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.

Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!

Not to mention - have you…

Kayaks and Kisses

About the book: Brynn Caley is about to start her dream career running an outdoor sporting goods store when an out-of-town business guru makes his own offer on the property. Coerced into forming a temporary partnership, Brynn, with her ski experience, finds she has to work with fishing expert Gage to run the year-round shop. 

Through a series of innocent misconceptions and a few blatant lies, Brynn doesn’t realize that the handsome single guy on the construction crew is her new partner, and he doesn’t want to set her straight until he can gain her favor. She, on the other hand, would do anything not to work with the stuffy businessman she’s only met through email. 

Inspired by the movies You’ve Got Mail and The Shop around the Corner, Kayaks & Kisses is a heart-warming tale of finding love in autumn leaves, outdoor activities, and new friendships.

My review: This book was so fun! I loved that it's loosely based on one of my very favorite movies, You've Got Mail. There was at …
