A Farewell to Charms (Princess for Hire #3)

Desi has made level 3 in the Facade Agency, she's preparing to be Matched to a princess and never sub for another princess again. She's not sure how she feels about that, because she's only been with Facade for six months and she hasn't subbed for very many princesses. She's thrilled to be the youngest sub to ever reach level 3, but she knows something that's really bothering her. After her last adventure she learned something dark and sinister about Facade and she's not quite sure what to do about it. She's hoping that her handsome friend Reed (of course she doesn't have a crush on him, her best friend Kylee does, so Desi certainly doesn't!), who she found out works for the male version of Facade will be able to help her figure out what to do about her secret. But will Desi be able to fix it before Facade realizes what she's doing and has her sub-sanitized?

I really have enjoyed this series. I love Desi, I love all of her faults and her caring heart. I love her friends, and especially the princesses that she subs for. I'm sad to see the series end, but I did like the way that it ended, even though it is the end (is that confusing enough for you?!)! I hope that Lindsey Leavitt writes more of these kinds of books/series for teenage girls!

I'm finding that I don't have as much time as I would like right now, so for awhile (most likely the rest of the school year) I'm going to go back to just three posts a week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday, unless something spectacular comes up or I'm able to think up an idea that doesn't leave me reading five brand new books every week.

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 …
