Beautiful Chaos

Ethan Wate just hasn't been the same since he died over the summer. Sure his girlfriend Lena and Amma brought him back from the dead, but things just weren't the same. The things that he used to love like chocolate milk and Amma's cooking just don't taste the same. Things that he used to hate like school cafeteria food do taste good. Luckily Lena's the same, except that it's hard for Ethan to touch her now, it sort of feels like he's going to die. He's not sure just what's going on with him, and it doesn't help when he starts forgetting things that he's known all his life. But Ethan can't really take the time to worry about himself right now. The whole town of Gatlin is suffering from a huge heat wave that has no end in sight, and it's full of Lubbers, crickets that are eating everything in sight. Ethan and Lena are pretty sure that the natural disasters going on are a result of Lena's breaking the order of things when she claimed herself last summer as both light and dark. But how do the go about fixing it? And just what is Amma up to? These questions and lots more will be answered in the 3rd book of the Beautiful Creatures series. I liked the story of this book. I think that I liked the other two more, but the story in this book was amazing. The one thing that I didn't love was all of the language added to this one. I didn't remember the others having quite as much language as this one did. It bugs me that authors think they need to add a bunch of language to make their stories more readable. For me it does just the opposite!

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 …
