Insurgent

This book starts off right where Divergent ended. Tris and Tobias have just finished shutting down the simulation and escaped from Dauntless headquarters, but now they are on the run. They must stay one step ahead of Erudite in order to stay alive. They start out hiding in Amity headquarters, but the rules there are very strict. There is to be no fighting, and both Tris and Tobias know that they really aren't going to be able to not fight, especially with Peter there. Tris catches Peter in her room, he's stealing the hard drive that she's kept the info from the simulation on, it also has video of her father being shot. Tris has had a hard time with her parent's deaths so close together and right in front of her, so this it's devastating for her when Peter steals the hard drive. So much so that she hauls off and hits him...hard. She and Tobias know that that's pretty much the end of their sanctuary with Amity, but it doesn't matter anyway, because before they are able to escape Erudite is right there, and they must escape, this time to Candor. But Tris knows that Candor will make her tell the truth about Will and she hasn't told Tobias yet, let alone his girlfriend and her best friend Christina. Will the truth truly set her free?


I would definitely have to say that I liked Divergent better than Insurgent. I thought that the plot of Divergent was clearer, and I know that I liked the ending of Divergent way better. The ending of this one confused me a bit, I still don't quite understand what Veronica Roth had in mind with the ending of this one, but I hope it will be revealed in the next book!

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…

Favorite Friday - Book Launch for Piper Pepper The Garden Sprite

I like to go to book launch parties! It's really fun to be able to meet the author of a book you've enjoyed reading and be able to talk to them just a little bit. I've had a ton of fun doing that. And I've met some really AMAZING people too! 

And I also like children's books, so I'm really excited to tell you about, not only a launch party coming up in Lehi next week, but about the book that will be launching.


About the book: Meet Piper and her three toad brothers in this first book of the series as they hop and fly around Piper's Garden. Piper loves her garden, with its petunias, violets and bell peppers. What Piper has a hard time with is her three toad brothers. They set traps, eat her food and race past her and through her garden. Will Piper be able to put that all aside when her brothers need her help? Piper Pepper the Garden Sprite is set in beautiful Alberta, Canada. With the Rockies and vast prairies as the backdrop, Piper helps us to see the sometime…

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 …
