The Horn of Moran

In the six months since Alex's last adventure he's been studying to be a Wizard by corresponding with Whalen Vankin, meeting with him would be preferable, but Whalen is currently on an adventure of his own. He's also been exploring his own dad's Magic Bag and trying to get to know him, even a little bit. One day, he receives a note from Whalen telling him that Silvan Bregnest, the leader of his last adventure is putting together a new group to go on another adventure. Whalen tells Alex that it's up to him, but that he thinks just maybe Alex would like to go on the adventure. Alex jumps at the suggestion, meeting Bregnest as suggested and signing on for a second adventure to find The Horn of Moran, a very important artifact for the known land of Alusia. Along the way Alex will get to see two friends get married, vanquish a bully in a comical way, outwit some goblins and make a host of new friends. All in adventure's name.

I was hoping that this second book was as good as the first and I was not disappointed in any way. I found Alex in this book to be the same steady, honorable, true personality that he was in the first book. In this book Alex, and readers, meet some new friends as well as make better acquaintance with some old friends. I still love the adventures in this book. I was quite surprised with who turned out to be the "bad guy" in this book, I like the way that it shows that we can each decide to be good, or to be "bad" by the choices that we make in our lives. I like how Alex again faces temptation but is able to stay true to his character. This is a great series, so excited to read the 4th one in February!

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 …
