Forgive My Fins

It's pretty hard to be a regular high school girl when you are really a mermaid. Lily has already discovered that. She has to keep an awful lot of secrets from an awful lot of people, especially her best friend Shannen and her huge mega crush Brody Bennett. There's also the pesky boy next door, Quince Fletcher. Quince has convinced her that just asking Brody out is not going to get her crush to be her man, and she's convinced, especially after he turns her down for the big dance in front of the entire student body at lunch! But she's not really sure that Quince's way will work either. Oh well, just one way to find out. She waits in the library for Brody to come, just as Quince claims he will. She's enjoying a wonderfully romantic kiss with who she figures is Brody when she finds out that it's really Quince, who came to make sure that she was okay. This opens up a whole can of worms though, because she's a mermaid. Any man who kisses a mermaid will become one himself, and instantly bond with Lily. Lily's not thrilled about this, she wanted to bond with Brody after all, and she wants to have her dad break the bond. Is it really just the bond making her feel things for Quince, or does she really have feelings for him. I really liked the premise of this book. I liked Lily, and Quince, but it didn't seem as though you really get to know any of the other characters very well. I didn't love the language in this book. There wasn't anything major, but it seemed as though there were a lot of minor words.

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 …
