Hourglass

17 year-old Emerson Cole sees things that no one else can. Like the Scarlett O'Hara look-a-like standing in front of her front door as she tries to enter. It was for this reason that she was committed to a mental hospital and put on medication. The medication helped to get rid of the visions, but it made her feel as though she wasn't herself. Now she's living with her brother Thomas and his wife Dru, and she's stopped taking her meds, but they don't know that. Thomas has tried a series of things to help Emerson, but each was just more crazy than the last. The latest one being Hourglass. Emerson isn't quite sure just what that one will be, but she doesn't have much hope for it. Then she meets Michael. Michael who doesn't think she's crazy or broken for seeing visions, and he can even see them himself. Not to mention he's really hot and he and Emerson just have this...chemistry. But can she trust him enough to do what they will need to do together? I enjoyed this story, I thought that it was really original. Emerson has quite a sassy attitude. I thought that she changed through the story, as she kind of got to "know" herself and ability. I didn't love the language, it seemed as though there was quite a lot of it, mostly farmer language. All and all a good story though!

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 …
