Paranormalcy

16 year old Evie works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, she's just a normal teenage girl. Her parent's abandoned her when she was just 3 years old and then she spent a few years in the foster care system. When she was 8, she was brought to the Agency and she's been under the director, Raquel's care ever since. Evie has a special power she can see through glamours of all kinds of paranormals, faeries, vampires, werewolves, you name it. Because of this she's kind of important to the Agency and she gets the royal treatment. One night after she's busted a vampire, she comes home to get some rest and then there's an alarm. The alarm means that she's supposed to stay where she's at, which happens to be in her room, but she gets curious and goes to investigate. She creeps to Raquel's office and what she finds seems crazy, what appears to be Raquel is going through some files, the person pretending to be Raquel has no idea that Evie can see through glamours, so they talk to her just as if they were Raquel, but Evie's not fooled. Evie can see there's something under there, but she can't tell just what the person is. The person almost appears to be the invisible outline of a person, but Evie doesn't really have the time to worry about what the person is, because pretty soon she will be given an answer to a question that will rock her whole world. This was an awesome book! I really enjoyed it, it's just what a young adult novel should be. It was basically clean, very little swearing (I loved how this was handled with the heroin saying "bleep" whenever she wanted to swear, you'll have to read it to know why), full of action, and of course all the vampires and mythical creatures!

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 …
