Princess for Hire

Funny thing about this book, I actually started reading the second book in the series first, I'll talk about that one in just a few days, but I decided that it would be smart to read them in order, so I got this one from the library really quick and stopped reading the other book. Desi is just a normal, everyday girl. She will be going into the 8th grade soon, she has a job at the pet shop at the mall, and she has some ex-best friends that are now enemies. She's working at the pet shop one day, dressed in a great big gopher head, when she sees her crush Hayden flirting with her ex-best friend Celeste. This is terrible enough, but then Hayden and Celeste come over to where she is standing and Celeste figures out that it's Desi under the head and unmasks her in a most embarrassing way. Desi's not sure why, but she seems to be invisible, almost like...vapor. She is pretty depressed and not sure what to do, so she makes a wish on some fish and the next thing she knows there's someone popping out of a bubble in her bathroom. The someone says that her name is Meredith and that she has Magic Potential, which basically means that she can become any princess that wants to have a substitute. But when Desi seems to mess up her first few cases, she wonders if Subbing is really for her. I really enjoyed this book, it's such a fun story, not to mention that I'm sure most of us have felt like Desi does, invisible vapor. And who doesn't want to see someone come out of a bubble and become a princess, even if only for a little while??!

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 …
