Rise of the Elgen (Michael Vey #2)

Michael and his friends, are heading home to Michael's apartment to regroup after their first battle with the Elgen. There's Jack and Wade, who used to be enemies of Michael, but since he saved their lives now they're his devoted friends, Taylor, Michael's girlfriend, she's electric like Michael one of her powers is that she can read minds, Ostin, Michael's best friend and partner in crime, and several electric kids who are loyal to Michael, Zeus, Grace, Abigail, and McKenna. The kids call themselves the Electroclan and they know that they need to come up with a way to get Michael's mom back from the Elgen and fast. But first, they need to use the info that Grace downloaded from the Elgen's computers to find out just where they are hiding her. They need a safe place to do that, and the first place that comes to mind is Michael's apartment, but what they don't realize is that the Elgen is already there, and at Ostin's apartment too, waiting for them to come back so they can capture all of the kids again. The Electroclan must outsmart them, figure out where Michael's mom is and get her back and they must do all that without getting captured again.

This book was a wild ride, with tons of action, the Elgen try again and again to capture the Electroclan and at first they seem to be successful. But the kids are more resourceful than they are given credit for and they are able to escape trap after trap and even escape from the guards after being caught. The plot in this book moves quickly, it didn't take me long to read, mostly because I wanted to find out what happened next. The ending is a cliff-hanger leaving you wanting to know more of the story! I can't wait for the next Michael Vey adventure!

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 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 …
