Beautiful Redemption

Ethan has awoken in the other world after jumping off of the tower in Gatlin, which he felt he needed to do to save all of those that he loved. He misses Lena terribly, but he is now with his mom. He soon determines that he's kind of between earth and Heaven, in a place where spirits who haven't finished everything they need to do wait. He also finds out that he can go back to the real Gatlin, but no one there can see or hear him. He knows that he needs to get a message to Lena that he's okay, but without people being able to see or hear him he's uncertain how. He discovers that he's able to move things around, with great effort. This leads him to the idea of using the newspaper to get a message to her. That makes him feel a little better, but he knows that he needs to get back to Lena, and he's willing to do pretty much anything he has to do to get back to her, including risking his eternity and anyone's life that gets in the way. But will things work out in his favor?

This book really kept me on the edge. I am kind of sad to see the end of this series. I've enjoyed getting to know Lena, Ethan, Rid, Linc and all of Gatlin. I liked the way this book went back and forth between Ethan and Lena's perspective. I thought that the ending to this series worked. I was glad to finally see Ethan's mom a little bit, it made the story feel complete. This book did have a few swear words, and some violence, but nothing beyond that.

I was able to borrow this book from my local library.

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 …
