Blog Tour - The Jane Journals: Liam Darcy I Loathe You


About the book: Lizzie, Nila, Alice, Cate, Vivian, and Fiona—six girls about to begin a writing assignment that changes everything. From cute crushes to dances and dresses, they’re recording it all, and so is their teacher. This modern makeover of Jane Austen’s beloved novels follows your favorite stories in a high school setting. Perfect for new fans and devoted Austenites alike!

My review: I LOVE Jane Austen's novels, so I was way excited to find this modern day re-telling of them. This was so fun! I loved that this story is told from the point of view of the girls' journals. That made me feel almost like I was back in high school dealing with many of the same situations the girls were. It was also fun how the teacher who gave them the assignment also made sure to write in her journal about her life. It was fun that this book is a blend of all of Jane Austen's novels, not just one and that there is a handy guide in the back of the book to let you know just which book all the characters are from, I was able to piece together just where each of the characters belonged from it. This book is just plain fun! If you're looking for a quick, easy, clean fun read, look no further than this cute book!

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 …

About the book: Young Women serving as missionaries today are carrying on a noble legacy of faith and dedication that extends back to the early days of the Church. But who were the brave women who paved the way for modern-day sister missionaries? In Sweet Is the Work, author Breanna Olaveson delves into a previously unexplored history that demonstrates the unique ability of women to carry out the errand of angels.
