Scarlet - Lunar Chronicles #2

Scarlet is a young woman living in France. It's the future, I'm not sure exactly when in the future, because the time seems to be numbered differently. Scarlet is worried, because her grandmother has disappeared. She knows that something bad has happened to her, because her tracking chip was left in the farmhouse where they live. The police are certain she left on her own, mainly because of the tracking chip, but Scarlet knows that kidnappers would cut out the chip happily to avoid being tracked by anyone. Scarlet is trying to go about her regular life of delivering vegetables in her community, but it's hard when the rest of her life is turned upside down. She knows that she must get the police to see her way of thinking, before it's too late for her grandmother. But then she meets Wolf. He's a strong street fighter, supposedly looking for work on her vegetable farm. But Scarlet is sure that he can help her find her grandmother. 

Meanwhile, Cinder is still in prison, with no chance of not being executed by her crazy lunar aunt. But she's had some help and with a little more help she's able to escape prison and New Beijing. But she must find a way to stop her aunt before it's too late for her country and her world. But how is that possible? What connection can these two teenage females possibly have?

I really enjoyed the first book in this series, Cinder is a must read! I was expecting to have this whole book be about Cinder and what happens to her, so I was really surprised to have it start out with Scarlet. I did like though, how the plot lines of the two young women dovetailed together. I liked the characters, there was tons of action and betrayal. All in all this book was an awesome sequel to an awesome book!

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…

Kayaks and Kisses

About the book: Brynn Caley is about to start her dream career running an outdoor sporting goods store when an out-of-town business guru makes his own offer on the property. Coerced into forming a temporary partnership, Brynn, with her ski experience, finds she has to work with fishing expert Gage to run the year-round shop. 

Through a series of innocent misconceptions and a few blatant lies, Brynn doesn’t realize that the handsome single guy on the construction crew is her new partner, and he doesn’t want to set her straight until he can gain her favor. She, on the other hand, would do anything not to work with the stuffy businessman she’s only met through email. 

Inspired by the movies You’ve Got Mail and The Shop around the Corner, Kayaks & Kisses is a heart-warming tale of finding love in autumn leaves, outdoor activities, and new friendships.

My review: This book was so fun! I loved that it's loosely based on one of my very favorite movies, You've Got Mail. There was at …
