Imperfectly Beautiful

Rebecca and her twin Regan are living very different lives. Rebecca lives with her family in Utah, and her life and marriage are not as perfect as she would like. Regan lives a single life in New York City, she has a great job as a fashion designer, yet she too yearns for a family. Unfortunately, she hasn't met the right man just yet. Regan is getting kind of nervous because there is a serial killer, his victims look eerily similar to the twins with blond hair and green eyes and he seems to be moving westward with his latest victim in Colorado. That's just a little too close to Utah for comfort to Regan. She warns Rebecca to be careful. But will Rebecca be able to be careful when it counts the most?

I really enjoyed reading this book. I liked the characters, I liked the plot, and I thought that the ending fit really well. I think that Diony George is able to write books that are well written and that leave you hanging just a little bit. I thought that the twin connection between Rebecca and Regan was really well done. I also liked that she showed Rebecca getting pretty close to making a mistake that she would forever regret, but Rebecca was able to make the right choice and remove herself from the situation. It just goes to show you that we all can be tempted but also be able to rise above such temptations. 

I was able to win a copy of this book! 

I hope that you all have an awesome New Year's tomorrow, I'll be spending some much needed time with my family. I'll be back to posting on January 2nd with a new book!

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 …

About the book: Young Women serving as missionaries today are carrying on a noble legacy of faith and dedication that extends back to the early days of the Church. But who were the brave women who paved the way for modern-day sister missionaries? In Sweet Is the Work, author Breanna Olaveson delves into a previously unexplored history that demonstrates the unique ability of women to carry out the errand of angels. Discover the powerful experiences of twelve of the earliest sister missionaries, from the first single proselytizing women in 1898 to some of the well-known sisters in Church history who were themselves pioneering missionaries.
