My Double Life

This is one that I've wanted to read for a little while, I've enjoyed other Janette Rallison books and I knew that I was going to get a clean fun story to read with this one. Alexia is a senior in high school, she lives in West Virginia with her mom and her grandma. Her mom's a single mom and won't tell Alexia who her father is, yet! She says that she will tell her after she graduates from high school, but Alexia has never felt completely whole. Alexia is a little awkward around boys she likes and lives a completely normal teenage life, that is until she ticks of her enemy, Theresa, by asking out the boy Theresa likes to the Sadie Hawkins dance. He turns her down eventually, but that isn't enough for Theresa. Alexia finds that Theresa has posted a picture of her on the internet. The one thing about that picture is that Alexia is a dead wringer for mega rock star, Kari Kingsley, whose agent happens to see the picture and comes up with a brilliant plan for Alexia to "become" Kari so that Kari can get her next record done, instead of having to make all kinds of celebrity appearances. Alexia wants to do it, but her mom says no, so she tries to tell that to Kari and her agent Maren, but in the process she discovers that her dad and Kari's dad are the same, so she knows that this is her chance to meet her dad and live the life that she was meant to live. In the process she discovers herself and falls in love, but will everything work out or will everything all fall apart in the end because of all the lies Lexi tells? This was an awesome plot idea. It was funny, cute and I really loved the end!

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 know...it'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 …
