Wednesdays in the Tower (Castle Glower #2)

It's a Wednesday in Castle Glower, Celie's not expecting anything to happen, the castle only adds rooms on Tuesdays, you know. But the castle has been acting strangely lately, and Celie is unable to find the schoolroom. Not for lack of looking, mind you, it's just not where it normally is. In it's place, a long spiral staircase. When Celie emerges, it's into a roofless space, and inside it she finds a large orange egg, the egg is hot to the touch. Whatever kind of egg could it be, Celie is uncertain, but sure that someone else will know. But whenever Celie tries to show anyone else the special room, the stairs leading to it disappear and they all end up in the schoolroom. It's obvious the castle wants Celie to keep the egg a secret, but why? Celie, her family, and their beloved Castle Glower are back in this fun sequel to the popular Tuesdays in the Castle. 

I love this series! I really love the idea of a castle that can add rooms whenever needed, or just because. I love the imagination that this series can bring to young readers. I love the characters, Celie and her family, and the castle are very lovable. I love the plot of this book, there were some really funny moments as Celie is working to keep the secret of the egg. I loved the ending and how it really left itself open for another book, which I hope will be coming really soon!

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 …
