Invaluable

16 year old Eliza has things pretty good. She has a great family that loves her, an amazing best friend Jill, and almost boyfriend Jason who leaves her really sweet love notes in her locker almost everyday. The thing is: life is really hard when you're in high school! Jill has a new boyfriend that takes up almost every minute and Eliza's younger sister Courtney is beginning to be very distant, Eliza's not sure quite when that even happened. Just when Eliza needs help the most her great-grandmother, also named Eliza, starts visiting her in her dreams, unfolding the deeper meanings of the Young Women values for Eliza and showing her some pretty incredible women, examples of those values, and what they had to go through in their lives. Eliza treasures this time with her long dead great-grandmother, even as she knows that it will soon come to an end, but what she doesn't realize is just how fast these lessons will become necessary to help Eliza, Jill and even Courtney. I LOVED this book. I really enjoyed the way the Young Women values were portrayed, I haven't been considered a Young Woman in a really long time, but I enjoyed the lessons on the values and I learned quite a bit myself! Eliza is a wonderful character, searching to find herself and do what's right, and the end of the book was amazing! I think all Young Women should read this book to find out for themselves just what the values of faith, divine nature, individual worth, knowledge, choice and accountability, good works, integrity and virtue really mean for them and in their lives!

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…

Kayaks and Kisses

About the book: Brynn Caley is about to start her dream career running an outdoor sporting goods store when an out-of-town business guru makes his own offer on the property. Coerced into forming a temporary partnership, Brynn, with her ski experience, finds she has to work with fishing expert Gage to run the year-round shop. 

Through a series of innocent misconceptions and a few blatant lies, Brynn doesn’t realize that the handsome single guy on the construction crew is her new partner, and he doesn’t want to set her straight until he can gain her favor. She, on the other hand, would do anything not to work with the stuffy businessman she’s only met through email. 

Inspired by the movies You’ve Got Mail and The Shop around the Corner, Kayaks & Kisses is a heart-warming tale of finding love in autumn leaves, outdoor activities, and new friendships.

My review: This book was so fun! I loved that it's loosely based on one of my very favorite movies, You've Got Mail. There was at …
