Emmalee

Emmalee Bradford is starting her senior year in high school, she's friends with plenty of people, but her BFF is away at college. Knowing that having a good female friend is very important, she starts looking around for the perfect replacement. As soon as she sees Hannah, she knows that she will be someone that she can makeover into the perfect BFF, and maybe even find her the perfect boyfriend along the way. She starts by getting to know Hannah, and it's clear right away that they have a lot in common and will be awesome friends. But setting her up with the perfect hot guy is not easy, she settles on Elton Bloomfield, the senior class president, but Emma learns quickly that you can't just make love form when it's not there. That doesn't stop her from trying again though. Will Emma find the perfect someone for Hannah? What about her self? 

This book is so cute! I love the way that Jenni James writes. This whole series is clean, fun and romantic. I love the way the characters from the other books appear too, I always enjoy knowing what's happening with old "friends" I have made in books. I love the modern twist that she puts on the old classic Jane Austen stories. Emmalee is really a fun character, she sees herself as just a normal girl who happens to have a great smile, so she doesn't really understand why others see her as a stuck up girl who doesn't know how to have fun. I also love how blind she is to her own love life when she thinks she has such a good grasp on everyone else's. Chase is the perfect boy next door in this book, I love how Emmalee sees him just as an older brother figure, or she thinks she does anyway. I can't wait for the next book in this series!

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 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 …
