It's a Mall World After All

Charlotte is a senior in high school, she works after school in Bloomingdale's as a perfume sales woman. This comes in handy, because you never know what you're going to see in the mall. One afternoon, Charlotte is selling perfume as normal when she sees her best friend's boyfriend, with another girl. It seems to be far to friendly to be a casual thing, and so she confronts Brianna as to the fact that Bryant is cheating on her. Thinking that she'll make sure Brianna is okay the next morning in school, she arrives at Brianna's locker expecting to find her devastated and in tears. But no, Brianna is just fine and not at all happy with Charlotte, she feels that Charlotte has accused her boyfriend unfairly, when he did nothing wrong. Brianna even lets Charlotte know that she doesn't want to choose between her and Bryant, code for she'll choose Bryant over Charlotte any day. Charlotte knows that something's up with Bryant and she's willing to go almost any length to prove it to Brianna, but will she be able to prove it or does Charlotte just have a grudge against Bryant like everyone says that she does? I love Janette Rallison's books, she manages to hit high school life right on the head in every one of her books. Her characters seem real and the situations they get themselves into are hilarious! This book is so funny and so worth reading, and since it's written for young adults, it's a fast reading book too!

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 …
