The Council of Mirrors (The Sisters Grimm #9)

Sabrina and Daphne Grimm are no strangers to trouble and fighting monsters. They no all about it, but now that their parents are awake and their Granny Relda's body has been taken over by the Master, they are feeling smothered. Their parents will not allow them to help get Granny Relda back, they say that it's too dangerous. Sabrina knows that they are going to be able to help, because, Hey, they've fought more monsters and gotten out of more sticky situations than they can count! But things are more difficult now, because Granny Relda's gone, and the Grimms are in hiding, because Granny's house is also gone. Sabrina needs to figure out how to help and fast, so she does the one thing she can do, she goes to talk to the mirrors and they make a prophesy that the only way that the Grimm family will when the war is if Sabrina and Daphne lead them. The army that the Grimm family has enlisted wants nothing to do with a couple of kids leading them, but they are soon shown that even if they are young, Daphne and Sabrina have plenty of ideas for shenanigans that just might help the good defeat the evil.

This series has been so fun! I have loved getting to know the characters of Daphne, Sabrina, Granny Relda, Mr. Canis and Puck, not to mention all the other fairy-tale characters. I have enjoyed the spin that Michael Buckley puts on all of these fairy-tales. I am very sad to see the series end! Michael Buckley wrote kind of a thank you to bloggers and readers in the front of this book, so I thought that I would write kind of a thank you to him too. 

Thank you Michael Buckley for writing such a great series, a series where the characters could seem real and jump off the pages. Also a series that mothers could read right along with their daughters and both enjoy and talk about together. A series where daughters could see that they have potential to do great things, even though they are young. Thank you so much!

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 …
