Fractured Light

Llona has lots of things she doesn't really like about her life. She's an orphan living with her Uncle Jake, who mostly just plays video games and leaves the house a mess. They've had to move a lot, because Llona is an Aura and she's afraid that the Vyken who killed her Aura mother is after her too. Because she has someone hunting her, Llona tends to be a bit of a loner. Life in high school is really hard without many real friends. But Llona decides that a life without fun and friends is not really any kind of a life. So she lets a few people in, May is her best friend and the one person who truly seems to understand that Llona has secrets. Christian is a boy that Llona just met, he seems to really like her and want to be her boyfriend, but he can be really over-protective at times. With these two by her side Llona feels as though she can face anything...well, at least Mr. Steele's high school math classes. But there are some really strange things happening around Llona. First she finds a woman's shoe on her porch, the shoe ends up belonging to a woman that was killed across town. Next a woman is killed by Llona's car, and this woman also ends up having a connection to her. Llona is afraid that both of these murders were done by the same Vyken, and that it's only a matter of time until she's next. Will she be able to protect herself?

I was actually going to read this book last year, when it came out, but the file that I had from NetGalley didn't work. So I was really excited to be able to sign up for the blog tour for Fractured Soul and be able to read this one too! I'm so glad that the book lived up to my high expectations! The characters were awesome in this book! I loved Llona, she's got a lot of spunk. I loved Christian and May too. The story line was great too, I loved how the story moved right along and had plenty of action. I had kind of guessed who the bad guy was in the story, but I was still surprised at the way the ending played out. This is a way fun series! I can't wait to read the next book.

I was sent an e-copy of this book to review.

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 …

About the book: Young Women serving as missionaries today are carrying on a noble legacy of faith and dedication that extends back to the early days of the Church. But who were the brave women who paved the way for modern-day sister missionaries? In Sweet Is the Work, author Breanna Olaveson delves into a previously unexplored history that demonstrates the unique ability of women to carry out the errand of angels. Discover the powerful experiences of twelve of the earliest sister missionaries, from the first single proselytizing women in 1898 to some of the well-known sisters in Church history who were themselves pioneering missionaries.
