Michael Vey Battle of the Ampere

Michael Vey has just destroyed the Elgen Starxource plant in the Amazon jungle of Peru, but he finds himself alone in a camp of Amazonians. They are taking good care of him, and are even able to quickly heal his broken foot. He discovers another electric kid at the camp, Tessa, she also was able to escape from the Elgen and has been hiding in the jungles of the Amazon. Now though, the Peruvian army is out to find Michael and the Electroclan and they will kill everyone who gets in the way. Michael and Tessa must get away from the innocent Amazonians before they are killed and they must find the rest of the Electroclan and get them away from the Peruvian army before they are killed as terrorists. After saving their friends, next on the agenda is getting rid of the evil Dr. Hatch. He and the electric kids are busy wreaking havoc for the Elgen on board their ship headquarters, the Ampere. Dr. Hatch has an evil plan to take over the world, can Michael save his friends and stop Dr. Hatch's plan before it's too late?

I really have enjoyed this series. It's perfect for teenagers. Michael is a character that's easy for them to relate to, he's a teenager with teenage problems who cares about the world and saving it before Dr. Hatch messes everything up. All of his Electroclan friends are also willing to save the world, even to the point of losing their own lives. I love how each one of them are an individual and they all make their own choice about just what they are willing to do in the fight against Hatch. The story line of this book is action packed just like the others with crazy jungle chases and heroic rescues. I didn't want to put it down even for just a few minutes. I really liked the ending, because it means that there will be even more of these books to read!

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…

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 …
