Not My Type

Pepper Spicer is 23 years old, she works as a manager at a sandwich shop, managing high school students and of course dealing with cleaning up after all of their friends when they trash the shop. She's had a hard year, breaking of her engagement just a week before the wedding, for the second time and all. Now she's just working and trying to pay off the bills from the second almost wedding. But she's had a bad day, it happens to be her birthday and when her little sister picks the one kind of cake that she hates (chocolate?!!) for her birthday cake she just snaps. She ends up tipping the whole cake onto the floor. Her parents decide that she needs an attitude makeover and a job that actually uses her English degree from BYU, so they issue her a little challenge. She needs to write a thank you note to someone every week, and find a real job, or she has to move out of their house. But things are not always easy. Pepper decides to follow her dream of being a journalist at the local paper, but she has really no experience in that field. Her little sister talks her into padding her resume just a little but that blows up in her face in a disastrous interview. Eventually she decides to take a job at a new online magazine as Indie Girl. Indie Girl goes on dates every week and writes hysterical, snarky columns about each of them. But will she find love without all of her extra dates, or will her extra dates just end up in the way? I loved this book, it was so funny! Her dates were terrible, I have never met anyone in real life that had as many terribly funny dates as Pepper! I couldn't put this book down, I can't wait for more books by Melanie Jacobson!

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'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 …

But who were the brave women who paved the way for modern-day sister missionaries? In Sweet Is the Work, author Breanna Olaveson delves into a previously unexplored history that demonstrates the unique ability of women to carry out the errand of angels.
