Drowning (Revitalizing Jane #1)

About the book: Revitalizing Jane, Part One Drowning-the brutally honest journey of a divorced mom

It’s only been a year since her divorce so why would Jane Adamson do something as stupid as attempt to date again? Wasn’t her marriage scarring enough? The answer was simple. Her kids. They worried about her and wanted to see her happy again. 

She needed to be happy, she needed to learn to trust again and feel pretty again and feel human again. 

As a mom of five it was too easy to hide herself away and focus just on her kids. Who needs men anyway? 

Join Jane on part one of this six part journey of self-discovery, conquering the past, understanding love, and most importantly… healing—as she finds the woman she once was. 

The full healing series:

Revitalizing Jane
Part One: Drowning
Part Two: Swimming
Part Three: Crawling
Part Four: Walking
Part Five: Running
Part Six: Soaring

My Review: This book is really an amazing one. I found myself really upset with the ex-husband of the book, because I know that though the details of the book may not all be accurate, this book is the story of Jenni's life. The heroine of the story, Jane, starts out the book not believing in her own beauty or even her own worth as a person. But through her counseling session and her dates with Pierce, she comes to know that she is of worth and is beautiful just because she is a person. This is a great message, one that every woman, and man for that matter, needs to know. Thanks to Jenni for putting her life out there so that we can all learn this very important lesson. Can't wait to read the rest of the story!

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

About the author: Jenni James is a bestselling author with thirteen published books, including The Jane Austen Diaries (Pride & Popularity, Northanger Alibi, Emmalee, and Persuaded) as well as The Jenni James Faerie Tale Collection (Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, The Frog Prince, and many more...) 

Jenni has wowed fans around the world with her unique voice in children and teen literature today, always keeping her books clean and wildly addicting.  When she isn't writing, she can be found chasing her seven rambunctious kids around the house.  She lives with her family in Utah and secretly dreams of becoming a ninja or pirate one day.  

Jenni has written Andy & Annie: A Ghost Story and Mansfield Ranch for Trifecta Books.

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 …
