Fins are Forever

Lily Sanderson is just getting used to the way her life is. She is about to turn 18 and renounce her title as mermaid princess of Thalassinia, so that she can stay on land with her true love and boy next door, Quince. One day, however, things change for Lily. The day started out just like any other day. She is has just finished up her Trig class when all of a sudden a large earthquake rocks Seaview High. Wait a minute...this is Florida, Florida doesn't have earthquakes! Later that same night, Lily is having a wonderful dinner of Italian takeout with her Aunt Rachel when there is a knock at the door. Thinking it's Quince coming to have dessert, Lily runs and opens the door only to find the person she least expects...her cousin Dosinia. Doe has been exiled by Lily's father the king, but she won't say what she did, it must have been bad, because not only was she exiled, she was exiled without her powers. It's up to Lily to help Doe come to love humans, and she's not quite sure how to do that, but it probably involves Seaview High and maybe even Lily's ex-crush Brody. 

This was a fun book, I thought that Tera Lynn Childs caught the essence of teenage life really well. I like the characters in these books, they seem like they could be real, even if they are mermaids. There were a few mild swear words, but nothing too terrible, and otherwise the book is clean.

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'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 …
