Arcade Catastrophe (The Candy Shop War #2)

Nate, Summer, Trevor, Pigeon and Lindy know that something's up when a couple of large men dressed in suits approach them after a full day of trying out their magical candy. They can only hope these men didn't see the stunts that the kids were doing on their bikes, but no such luck! The men let them know they did see them, but that they were specifically searching them out because John Dart and Mozag the magician are missing. The men know that the kids have had dealings with them in the past and are hoping that Nate and his friends have some information to find John and Mozag. Unfortunately the kids haven't heard from either of them, but they agree to a meeting if Lindy's guardian, Mr Stott approves. Mr Stott knows that something is very wrong if both Mozag and John Dart are missing and reluctantly agrees to the kids helping, with the exception of Lindy. The kids, and the men soon come to an agreement: the kids will infiltrate Arcadeland, a new amusement park and the men will be back up if necessary. But what the kids find is a surprise and more than either the kids or the men planned on!

I LOVE Brandon Mull's books and this one is no exception. He writes in such a way that you are engaged in the story line before you even realize it. This book is quite long, 426 pages, but I was able to finish it pretty fast. The story sucks you in and you move through pages rapidly. I loved the adventure in this book, who doesn't want to have candy that gives you super powers? The characters are believable. All in all this is a great book, I highly recommend it.

  1. My son has loved these books. I haven't read them yet, but should. We've met Brandon a couple of times at book signings and he is such a nice man.

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 …
