The Savage Grace (The Dark Divine #3)

This is the third in the Dark Divine series. Grace and Daniel had been able to save Grace's brother Jude at the end of the last Dark Divine novel. This one starts out with Daniel stuck in his werewolf form as a white wolf. Grace is uncertain how to help him escape from this form and it's breaking her heart that he seems to be pulling away from her, even though she also fights the wolf that lives inside of her from the bite that Jude gave her. Jude is currently living in the basement of their father's church because he doesn't trust himself not to turn back to the wolf and fight against Grace and Daniel again. But there are problems coming. The whole town is on edge from the apparent wolf attacks that have been happening. One local grocer has even bought pure silver bullets and donated them to the cause. This is especially dangerous for Daniel, as every night he howls loudly enough for the whole town to hear and it's terrifying everyone. There also will be a challenge as Sirhan, a leader of a pack of werewolves is close to death and he needs a successor, this will be a bloody battle full of traitors and with no other option than death or victory.

I have to say that I had a hard time getting into this one, I think part of it was that I didn't remember what had happened in the last novel very well. I do like Grace, and I think the whole werewolf controlling themselves thing she does is pretty amazing. I like that she's just a normal pastor's daughter who is trying to take care of her brother, boyfriend, injured dad and sick mom, even while finishing her senior year of high school and fighting the wolf that lives inside her. The battle scenes in this one were pretty intense. I did like the ending as well. I'm not sure if there are going to be more in this series, but I hope so! I want to know what happens with Grace and Daniel.

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 …
