Blog Tour - Blud and Magick Review and Giveaway

 Darla Summer thinks she's just a normal teenager. She lives with her uncle Edwin, and they travel around an awful lot for his job, so Darla is always the "new girl" at school. It has gotten to be pretty normal for her. What she doesn't know, but is about to find out is that she is really from a different place called Trivaesia, where she was born from the ashes of a man they called the Shadow Lord. But his followers have now found her and they want to take her back to Trivaesia so that the Shadow Lord can be reborn and regain his previous power. It's up to Darla and her to navigate the terrifying dreams that she's having and make up her own mind once and for all, about whether she is good or evil. 

This book was a really fun read. I liked the characters, the action packed plot, and the fantasy of a land called Trivaesia. I really loved the way this book ends. I liked the way that Darla learned that she might have evil inside her, but she also has good inside her and the choice of who she will be is really up to her. This book is a fun book for young adult and even adult readers.

I was able to read an e-copy of this book that I got from Netgalley.

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'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 …

Blog Tour - Sweet is the Work

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. The women highlighted in this volume demonstrate the valiant and noble history of sister missionaries in an account that is sure to inspire readers to boldly go forth to share the truths of the gospel.

My review: Here's another great non-fiction book for women to read! I was fascinated by the accounts of some of the first female missionaries includ…
