Jessie's a normal young single adult living in Seattle. She's had a bad relationship and a bunch of really bad blind dates, so she's sick of that scene and pretty much has become a work-aholic to compensate. So she's pretty mad when her roommate Sandy signs her up for one of those LDS dating services. Sandy convinces her to at least look at the profiles of the three men who were matched to her by the sight and there's one who looks pretty promising. She sends him a "wave" and soon they're sending e-mail messages back and forth. All too soon they decide that maybe since their messages seem to work for them, they should meet. Enter Ben Bratton, an amazing very attractive person and completely perfect for Jessie. But Jessie is having a contest at work with a man named Craig and she just doesn't feel as though she has a lot of time for a relationship right now. And Ben's been burned before by a previous girlfriend who thought work was far more important than a relationship. Can Jessie figure out what's most important before Ben moves on to someone else? I bought this book a few weeks ago, when I bought it, it had just come out, I hadn't seen any reviews or anything on it. Most of the time I just borrow books from the library, because it gets pretty expensive to buy all the books that I read (not to mention our bookshelves are already running over!), but I loved Melanie's two previous books The List and Not My Type. I just knew this book would be a great, funny, romantic book and I wasn't disappointed. I loved this book! I loved everything about it, the characters, setting, humor, you name it! I hope that there are more books coming from Melanie pretty soon!

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 …

About the book: Young Women serving as missionaries today are carrying on a noble legacy of faith and dedication that extends back to the early days of the Church. 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. Discover the powerful experiences of twelve of the earliest sister missionaries, from the first single proselytizing women in 1898 to some of the well-known sisters in Church history who were themselves pioneering missionaries.
