Cress

Cress has been trapped in a satellite orbiting the earth for more than seven years. This time has given her lots of opportunity and practice at becoming a hacker. If she hadn't been imprisoned in the satellite on Queen Levana's orders, Cress most likely would have used her hacking skills for the benefit of the Lunar Empire. But she was imprisoned on the Lunar queen's orders so Cress has used her hacking skills against the Lunar Empire, most recently to hide the ship of the fugitives Cinder and Carswell Thorne. She's just finished a game when she receives a Comm from none other than Cinder herself and Cress is thrilled to receive an offer for Cinder to rescue her. The plan is already set in motion when the woman who imprisoned her shows up for an unannounced visit and ruins everything. Cress' satellite is sent hurtling toward Earth on a collision course and Cress knows she's to blame for whatever ill befalls Cinder and her crew. Will Cress be able to survive the fall? Will Cinder be able to stop Queen Levana's plans before it's too late?

I really love this series! I love how it's based on fairy-tales but set far in the future. I love the characters and the way we've gotten to know them through several volumes of the book. The plot of this book is filled with action, adventure and danger just like the previous two volumes were. I was really glad to find that the series doesn't end with this story, putting off the sadness of the ending for yet another book. Make sure to read these in order or you won't have any hope of understanding what's happened previously. I can't wait for the next book in this exciting, clean series! 

I was able to borrow a copy of 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 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 …
