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…

Kayaks and Kisses

About the book: Brynn Caley is about to start her dream career running an outdoor sporting goods store when an out-of-town business guru makes his own offer on the property. Coerced into forming a temporary partnership, Brynn, with her ski experience, finds she has to work with fishing expert Gage to run the year-round shop. 

Through a series of innocent misconceptions and a few blatant lies, Brynn doesn’t realize that the handsome single guy on the construction crew is her new partner, and he doesn’t want to set her straight until he can gain her favor. She, on the other hand, would do anything not to work with the stuffy businessman she’s only met through email. 

Inspired by the movies You’ve Got Mail and The Shop around the Corner, Kayaks & Kisses is a heart-warming tale of finding love in autumn leaves, outdoor activities, and new friendships.

My review: This book was so fun! I loved that it's loosely based on one of my very favorite movies, You've Got Mail. There was at …
