Blog Tour - Huber Hill and the Golden Staff of Cibola


Huber Hill, his sister Hannah, and best friend Scott are glad to be home after their trip to Spain, but they are returning home with heavy hearts. They return to their empty homes, because the Brotherhood of Coronado have kidnapped their parents. They know they must find them quickly, it could be too late. They head first to Huber's house, hoping against hope that all will be well there and they can find a clue to lead them to their parents, but unfortunately they encounter one of the kings of the Brotherhood of Coronado, and he almost captures them. But thanks to their friend, Eagle Claw, the three friends are able to escape and head to New Mexico to find their new friends Alejandro and Yesenia. There's only one little problem, none of them are supposed to be driving, they're not old enough, so when Scott gets caught by the police the three teenagers make a run for it. They find themselves as hitchhikers aboard the freight train to Santa Fe. Where they will find a long lost diary explaining how to get to Cibola and find the golden staff. They know that it's imperative to get there before the Brotherhood of Coronado and also Juan Salazar, their old nemesis. But will they be able to do so?

This book is action packed. I love that it's written for pre-teens and teens, but there's plenty to recommend it to adults too! The characters in these books are fun and you really get to know Huber, Hannah, Scott and even Juan Salazar. There is tons of action and adventure, you never know what's going to be around the corner or how everything is going to work out for the kids and their rivals. There was more than one time I was surprised as to what happened next. I'm kind of sad that this is the final adventure of this series, but grateful for the journey. I did think that the ending wrapped everything in the series up, I wasn't disappointed. 

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest 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…

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 …
