Rules of Engagement

Annemarie Whitted has watched all of her sisters get married, and she always been the bridesmaid but never the bride. Now, as her youngest sister prepares to get married and her extended relatives are starting to talk about her being an old maid, Annemarie knows that it's time to get serious. She's going to come up with a plan and she's going to catch a husband. She enlists her sister Lisa and brother-in-law Tanner, they will help her come up with and keep certain "Rules of Engagement." The only problem is Tanner's brother, Ben, who always seems to be around and is constantly questioning Annemarie's methods and her rules. As their animosity grows as long as Annemarie's rules, Annemarie begins to really see Ben. Not as the boy that has driven her nuts all of her life, but as the companion that he could be for some lucky young lady. But will Annemarie be able to watch Ben with some other lucky young lady?

I really enjoyed this story. There were many parts that made me laugh out loud. I thought Annemarie was really a character, so addicted to rules and lists that she has to make one in order to be able to find a husband. I liked Ben too, I know that he was really annoying to Annemarie, especially in the beginning, but I thought he was an amazing love interest and character. I really enjoyed seeing the characters that I loved from Glitch make a repeat performance. I hope that there will be more books about this fun group of young adults!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

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 …
