Stealing Magic: A Sixty-Eight Rooms Adventure

Jack and Ruthie thought that their lives would go back to normal after all of the media attention the received for writing their school report on the Thorne rooms. Unfortunately, they were wrong. Ruthie starts having vivid dreams about the rooms. The first being a clue about the Bento box that they left in the Japanese room. When Ruthie goes back to find it, it's quickly apparent that someone else has been there first. There's a note written at the bottom of the note they left in the box, which could be dangerous, because Jack and Ruthie had their names on the note. Then things get weirder when they notice that some of the miniatures are disappearing from the rooms they belong in. Some of those rooms no longer seem to be "animated" which means you can't use those rooms to access the time periods of those rooms anymore. To top it all off, there's an art thief on the loose! Jack and Ruthie must figure out who's taking the artifacts from the Thorne rooms, and quickly, or the rooms might all end up losing their animation.

I really enjoyed reading this book! This is a really fun series,  I love the idea of the Thorne rooms taking you to different places and time periods, it really quickens the imagination. It's kind of fun to think that the rooms that this book talks about are really in the Chicago Art Museum and you really could go see them. I like that I can read these books and enjoy them, even though they are written for a younger audience and our 12 year-old can read the same book and enjoy it too! I would recommend reading the first one The Sixty-Eight Rooms first, because this one talks a lot about what happened in that one.

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 …
