Finding June

June Laurie is just your typical LDS 16 year old girl. Her best friend is Joseph and they both love to act, June's been in commercials and high school plays and things, but she's about to get her first big break. It seems that the popular crime drama, Forensic Faculty, has seen June's picture and want her for a recurring role. June is thrilled, it's her favorite show and she'll get to play opposite the heartthrob Luke Leighton, every girl she knows will be so jealous. But Joseph, not so much, he's excited for June, but every time Luke's name is brought up, he becomes kind of quiet. Hollywood life moves really quickly for June, it's a world full of paparazzi, fans, and never really knowing who your friends are. Luckily, she still has her best friend Joseph to keep her grounded, but for how long?

I really enjoyed reading this book. I thought that June and Joseph were likable characters, who could go to pretty much any high school in the US. I liked the plot, I've never really thought about what would happen if the quintessential girl next door landed a role on a popular show. I liked the way that June was given choices as to how she would act in certain real life situations. I liked that she was able to find herself and her voice and be able to stand up for what she believed in. She has to make some hard choices, choices that she knows are going to cost her personally for things, but I like how she believes that she is worth more and is able to make the right choices. This book is a clean, fun read and I can't wait to read more of June's adventures! 

I was sent an e-copy of this book, no other compensation was given.

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…

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 …
