Mind Games

Sofia (Fia) and her blind sister Annie both have extraordinary talents. Fia has perfect instincts, she always knows just what to do. Annie is able to see the future, mostly Fia's future. They were both recruited by a school for girls with talents like theirs, but what they didn't know was that the school was a training ground to exploit the talents of the girls, not train them. Now both Annie's and Fia's loyalties are kept for the school's good by threatening the life of the other sister. Fia has been sent to kill a man, and she doesn't know why, she does know that Annie will die if she doesn't. When the man shows kindness to a lost puppy, Fia knows that she can't kill the man, Adam, she knows that Annie will die, but only if she can't find a way to fool the man that sent her to kill Adam. She knows that as long as none of the seers can see her plans to save Adam, Annie will be safe. What she can't know however is just who really ordered Adam's death and when she finds out, it will tear her apart.

When I finished reading this book my first thought was "Wow!" This is not a plot that you see every day. The plot is full of action, adventure, traitors, and sisterly love. I really liked the characters too. Annie and Fia both feel like real people, caught in a real situation. And the ending.... I was pretty shocked about the way the book ended, I'm not going to ruin it for you though! I'm so excited that this is going to be a series, I can't wait to read more books about Fia and Annie.

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'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 …
