How to Take the Ex Out of Ex-boyfriend

Giovanna has it all, she's got great girlfriends, an amazing twin brother and a great boyfriend, Jesse. Jesse is a popular boy and all of his friends are popular too, which leaves Giovanna feeling a little overlooked. Those types of girls never want to talk to her beyond a few superficial remarks. When her brother, Dante, decides to run for student body president, Giovanna just knows that Jesse will throw his support behind Dante and help out with whatever he needs help with, so she's completely surprised when he does just the opposite and becomes campaign manager for Dante's opponent. This makes her furious and she very publicly dumps Jesse to help her brother by being his campaign manager, thinking she can rub it in Jesse's face later. This plan backfires on her rather quickly, Jesse seems to move on way more quickly than Giovanna would like, and she realizes right away that she still really cares for Jesse and that she's made a huge mistake. Can Jesse forgive her after the very public way she dumped him and all of the mean things she does to him afterward?

I really enjoyed the story of this book. The plot was funny, how many bad things can happen to one person! I laughed really hard after the party scene when Giovanna and her friend, the preacher's daughter take some drunk boys home. They really should have seen that one coming! I thought that the characters were well done, really all of Janette Rallison's YA books are amazing. I love that they are clean, funny and well written.

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 …
