The Throne of Fire

This is the second book in the Kane Chronicles series. In book 1 you meet Sadie and Carter Kane, witness their dad dying and learn with them that they are young magicians. Their job is to keep the balance between the House of Life and Chaos. At the end of the last book, Sadie and Carter sent out a tape with messages for other young magicians to come and train with them at Brooklyn House and at the beginning of this book we meet a few of those that answered the call. Carter has been given a message that they only have 5 days until Apophis rises from his cage in the underground to come back and make Chaos rule over the Egyptian House of Life. In that 5 days Sadie and Carter must find the 3 pieces of the Book of Ra and they are all hidden all over the world. First they must rescue the piece hidden in the Brooklyn Museum, but in order to do that not only must they get past the spells that are hiding the book, but they must get past the wedding that's being held in the Museum. This does not go well, of course, Sadie awakens the guardian of the book and then their friends awaken the spirits guarding the windows. The result is bedlam, all in the middle of this wedding. Will Sadie and Carter stay alive and be able to find all the pieces of the Book of Ra before Apophis and Chaos rule? I don't know, you'll have to read it and find out! This was a fun book, I love how the two characters narrate what happens to them! My 10 year old is loving this series, I had to hide this book from her to be able to read it first, and as soon as she discovered that I had it she was constantly asking me if I was done yet. I can't wait to read more of Sadie and Carter's adventures (or misadventures!)

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 …
