Unsinkable (Titanic #1)

It's spring 1912 and the Titanic is ready to start it's maiden journey from England to New York. 4 young passengers are about to embark on the most amazing and dangerous journey of their lives. There's Paddy, a young orphan from Scotland, he's a stow-away running for his life. Sophie is an American, a young woman who spends an awful lot of time bailing her mom out of jail after one of her "Votes for Women" rampages, she and her mom are delivered to the Titanic by the local police. Juliana is a wealthy young woman whose father is always looking for the next new thing. And last but not least Alfie, a young steward, his mother abandoned him and his father is shoveling coal into the Titanic's engines. All of these young people's lives will intersect on the most amazing ship ever built. But will any of them survive the journey.

This book is really fun! I volunteer during the summer for a literacy event for elementary age kids that our city has. This was one of the books that the older kids book club read. I was really impressed with the story line. I thought that the author did an awesome job of making the reader want to read the second and third books in the series. It's kind of obvious just what's going to happen to the ship, but the characters are another story! I'm really excited to read the next two books in the series to find out what will happen to all of them.

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…

Kayaks and Kisses

About the book: Brynn Caley is about to start her dream career running an outdoor sporting goods store when an out-of-town business guru makes his own offer on the property. Coerced into forming a temporary partnership, Brynn, with her ski experience, finds she has to work with fishing expert Gage to run the year-round shop. 

Through a series of innocent misconceptions and a few blatant lies, Brynn doesn’t realize that the handsome single guy on the construction crew is her new partner, and he doesn’t want to set her straight until he can gain her favor. She, on the other hand, would do anything not to work with the stuffy businessman she’s only met through email. 

Inspired by the movies You’ve Got Mail and The Shop around the Corner, Kayaks & Kisses is a heart-warming tale of finding love in autumn leaves, outdoor activities, and new friendships.

My review: This book was so fun! I loved that it's loosely based on one of my very favorite movies, You've Got Mail. There was at …
