Rules of Engagement

Samantha Skyler is a BYU coed. She's just like any other BYU coed, she goes to all the singles events, dates the boys that ask her out, hangs out quite a bit with the boys that live in her ward. She has some amazing roommates, but she's ready to move on with her life. Things don't seem to be working out that way though. The boy that she's been dating just told her that it's a better idea to be "friends" than to date. Unfortunately he's the dad of her family home evening group and that means that she'll see him at least once a week for a while longer and she'll have to see him flirt with all of her FHE sisters. FHE is just ending when Harrison Bean shows up at their apartment. He tells the roommates that he will be able to get them all engaged by the end of the semester, only a month away if they will all agree to follow his plan. It takes some convincing, but soon the roommates, Stephanie, Ashley, Emma and Brooke agree to follow his advice. What happens next is just a comedy of errors with roommate pitted against roommate. But will any of the girls really find her Prince Charming among the guys from their singles ward?

I think I actually read this book when it came out a few years ago, but I really didn't remember anything about it. It's a pretty zany story with all kinds of crazy college stunts in it, prank pulling, kicking a hook hanging from a ceiling, and boyfriend stealing are all a part of the plot. This is a cute story, a quick read with nothing overly heavy in it.

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'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 …
