Everneath

Nikki Beckett has just woken up in the Everneath where she went to The Feed. Cole, the Everliving who tricked her into going to the Feed wants her to stay and be his queen. But Nikki knows that there is one face on earth that she hasn't forgotten the whole hundred years that Cole has been feeding on her emotions. She knows that she has to go back for Jack. Jack's face is the one thing that she can remember from her life before the Everneath. She also knows that she only has six months to be on the earth before the Tunnels come for her. Six months to make her disappearance of 6 months before up to her grieving dad and brother. Six months to work at going to school. Six months to make it up to her friends, people who now think she's a druggie because of how terrible she looks. And most importantly, six months to make things okay with Jack before she has to leave again. But Cole is not ready to give up, he's going to fight with every bit of tenacity he has to get Nikki to come back with him to be his queen. Is that what Nikki wants? Or does she want to tough things out with Jack and hope he can care for her once again?

I really enjoyed this book! I loved the way that mythology was woven through every bit of Nikki's story. I loved the themes of redemption and forgiveness that wove their way through the story. Just from reading the back of the book, to me the story seemed a little odd, but once I started reading, I really wanted to figure out what was up with Nikki. A lot of the story, especially of what happened before the Everneath is in flashbacks, which don't always work, but I really enjoyed the way they were weaved through what was happening now. I liked that this book was clean of sex, there were a few mild swear words to watch out for.

I borrowed 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…

Favorite Friday - Book Launch for Piper Pepper The Garden Sprite

I like to go to book launch parties! It's really fun to be able to meet the author of a book you've enjoyed reading and be able to talk to them just a little bit. I've had a ton of fun doing that. And I've met some really AMAZING people too! 

And I also like children's books, so I'm really excited to tell you about, not only a launch party coming up in Lehi next week, but about the book that will be launching.


About the book: Meet Piper and her three toad brothers in this first book of the series as they hop and fly around Piper's Garden. Piper loves her garden, with its petunias, violets and bell peppers. What Piper has a hard time with is her three toad brothers. They set traps, eat her food and race past her and through her garden. Will Piper be able to put that all aside when her brothers need her help? Piper Pepper the Garden Sprite is set in beautiful Alberta, Canada. With the Rockies and vast prairies as the backdrop, Piper helps us to see the sometime…

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 …
