Prom and Prejudice

I've been wanting to read Elizabeth Eulberg's first novel The Lonely Hearts Club for about a year now, but for some reason our library's never gotten a copy of it, but they did get a copy of her second novel Prom and Prejudice. Lizzie is a scholarship student at the prestigious Longbourn Academy. Scholarship students aren't treated well by those who are paying to attend, they are made fun of and occasionally someone purposefully dumps their drinks on their dresses at fancy receptions (this really happens to Lizzie!) Lizzie's roommate Jane and fellow scholarship student Charlotte are the only two girls in the whole school that haven't been rude or mean to Lizzie. Jane is just a sweetheart, but her younger sister Lydia is another story! When Lizzie meets Will Darcy, who goes to the Pemberly boy's school, at the upperclassmen reception, she realizes that he's no different from any of the stuck up girls at Longbourn. As soon as he finds out that she's a scholarship student he takes off and refuses to have anything else to do with Lizzie. Prom is a big deal at Longbourn with the girls going to fancy designers to have elaborate dresses made for them. Most of the girls want to go with a guy from Pemberly. Lizzie wants nothing to do with the few that she's met. Will she survive her junior year at Longbourn? This was a fun spin on Pride and Prejudice. It was an easy read, I read it in just a few hours. I thought the story was engaging and the characters were really true to Jane Austen style! I really want to read The Lonely Hearts Club now!!!

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 …
