Tiger's Curse

Kelsey is and orphan she lives with her guardians Sara and Mike and their family. She has just finished with high school and decides to get a summer job. At the unemployment office she's hired to be a temporary worker for the circus. Can you believe it: THE CIRCUS! Pretty crazy. She's a little bit apprehensive because part of her duties are supposed to include helping with the tiger. Her first day of work she shows up at 6 am, and spends the whole day helping with routine things, selling tickets, snacks and souvenirs, and cleaning up after the shows. But the second day she gets to help with the tiger. At first Kelsey's kind of scared, but soon she realizes there's really nothing to be afraid of, in fact, she feels a certain connection to the tiger, Dhiren, she even reads poetry to him and she also gives him a nickname, Ren. All to soon, her two week temporary job is nearing a close and the tiger is bought by a man, Mr. Kadam, who wants to return the tiger to India to a sanctuary so that it doesn't have to be in captivity any more. He offers Kelsey the job of going with him and taking care of the tiger while he does other things. She agrees and thus begins her crazy adventure across India with the tiger, Ren, who she learns quickly is really a very handsome prince who was cursed hundreds of years earlier. I LOVED this book, I had a really hard time wanting to put it down. I can't wait to read the other two books, which I already have on hold at the library. I JUST CAN'T WAIT!!!

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 …
