Eve: In the Beginning

About the book: The first love story on earth... Haunting... Lyrical... Unforgettable...

In a world where everything is perfect, yet the same day after day, Eve must decide if she wants to live forever in the garden with Adam and never know what lies beyond the walls. When she makes a choice with terrible consequences, the pain of mortality is swift. As she and Adam explore their new world, and her body changes, Eve discovers the sweetness of first love with the man who has always been at her side.

My Review: Wow, I have never thought of the story of Adam and Eve in this way before! I loved this book! I loved the way that Adam and Eve are portrayed. This book takes Adam and Eve from their beloved home in the Garden of Eden, through their fall and into the wilderness, cut off from the God they once were on intimate terms with. 

I liked that the book showed some of both Adam's and Eve's views, during and after their time in the Garden. I loved that it made me think more about Adam and Eve and wonder about how they would have spent their time in the Garden and how they would have adapted after they were removed from it. I liked that it showed Eve after their fall, and she felt...powerless really. Adam is injured and she has no idea how to help him or even how to care for herself in the situation. She ends up basically forced to take help from Lucifer, whether she wants to or not. It left me thinking about the strength of this amazing first mother of ours.

The characters were great, I found myself rooting for Adam and Eve as they were learning new skills after their removal from the garden. I thought that H B Moore did a great job with the character of Lucifer as well, he is a bit mysterious, and a bit creepy all at the same time. I can see how Eve was drawn to him, but also repulsed at the same time.

This book has a great plot that will leave you wanting more! H B Moore is really a master at this kind of historical fiction writing, this whole book was amazing. Don't miss it!

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 …
