Clockwork Prince

This is a sequel to Clockwork Angel, which happens to be a prequel series to The Mortal Instruments series. I haven't read any of The Mortal Instruments series and the books still make sense, but you definitely want to read Clockwork Angel before this one. Tessa lives in Victorian London. She moved there from the United States, because her brother Nate asked her to after her Aunt Harriet died. Unfortunately, Nate only wanted her to come to London because The Magister wanted to marry her and use Tessa's power that she didn't even know she had for himself. Tessa was rescued by the Shadowhunters, who she still lives with at the start of this book. But there's a possibility that the safety that Tessa has found with the Shadowhunters could be taken away. Charlotte, the director of the Institute, is being threatened. Certain Shadowhunters no longer want her to be director. It's up to Tessa, Will, and Jem to figure out just why they want Charlotte gone and ultimately to find The Magister, before he comes after Tessa again. This book was full of great action and adventure. Not to mention one of my most favorite times and places. Victorian London is an amazing place, full of mystery and magic. I enjoyed the plot, although I thought the language could be improved.

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 …
