The List

Ashley Barrett moves to California to stay with her cousins for the summer, she's working on her list of 25 things she wants to do before she gets married. Her mother and both of her sisters were married really young and Ashley didn't think that would work for her, so when one of her sisters made a joke about her getting married right away on her eighteenth birthday she sat down and made a list. Theres a bunch of crazy things on her list, things like going skydiving, spending time touring Europe, going to school abroad and getting her master's degree. She's in California working on her goal of learning how to surf board. She meets Matt at the singles ward and figures that she can also get her goal of having a summer romance out of the way at the same time. Matt is an awesome surfer and even gives lessons. She gets her cousin, Dave, to kind of trick Matt into giving her lessons. Meanwhile, all the girls in the singles ward are after Matt. Who wouldn't be, he's cute, super nice and available! But will Ashley be able to follow her own rules and have her heart stay free from being entangled with Matt, or will she fall hard for him, just like a surf wipeout?! This was a really cute romance. I enjoyed reading it, in fact I had a hard time putting it down. I kind of knew how it was going to end up, but I was really excited to see how it got to that point. This was a super clean, fun, happy romance!

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…

SeaQuest Aquarium Giveaway

For this week's Friday Favorite (I's only Wednesday!) I want to tell you about something new that I got to try out just last week. It's the SeaQuest Aquarium located in the Layton Hills Mall in Layton. 

This is a pretty new thing, it actually just opened in November. It's new, it's beautiful and there really is nothing like it located in Davis County. And actually, the way that it's been set up there isn't a whole lot like it out there. You see, it's not just an aquarium, it's really an interactive experience. There are only a few exhibits in the whole aquarium that have animals in them that you can't/shouldn't interact with. Those exhibits have high walls on them so you really can't interact with them anyway. Everything else has low walls. You can touch, feed, examine pretty much anything you see here. That makes it so much more than an aquarium.

I love the way it's set up in areas. Each of the rooms has a different and fun …
