The Princess and the Sorceress

About the book: When Genevieve was sent to the future, she didn’t think she’d be able to fit in. A year later, she has great friends and the chance to go to college—something that wouldn’t have been possible in her own time. 

Jenny is just getting the hang of being a princess and can’t wait for her wedding day. What she doesn’t expect is a visit from Maurelle, an evil fairy bent on destroying everything Jenny holds dear. 

When Jenny and Genevieve are switched for a second time, they are thrown back into worlds they never thought they’d see again. If they're unable to stop Maurelle in her quest for revenge, they will be forever cursed to remain in a time not their own.

My review: I was way excited to get to read this sequel to The Princess and the Prom Queen!

I love the way that Jaclyn Weist writes. Her stories are full of grand adventures, great characters and the occasional evil sorceress with her dragon. This book is no exception. It's an awesome fairy tale type book that you can let your child read and at the same time enjoy yourself. There's tons of twists and turns and you'll be surprised by just how everything ends.

I loved the way the book starts out. Jenny's getting married to her prince when right in the middle of the ceremony she suddenly finds herself slammed to the gym floor in the middle of a basketball game in PE. Talk about a crazy moment! She's not sure quite what happened but knows that she was supposed to be permanently in the past while Genevieve stayed in the future. And what in the world happened to Sam, anyway?!

I love that you see things through both Jenny and Genevieve's eyes and I love the way that you can see the ways that Genevieve had changed in the future as opposed to how she had been when she lived in the castle in the past. 

I loved the magic of this book. There's fairies, a dragon, an evil sorceress, an enchanted tower, love, time travel...pretty much anything you could want in a book!

Make sure to pick up your own copy of this great book! Here's an Amazon link

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

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 …

Worth the Wrestle

About the book: Why can’t I seem to conquer weaknesses that plague me?” “How do I know if I’m receiving revelation?” “Will the Lord forgive me after what I’ve done?” “Why can’t we seem to get ahead financially even though we faithfully pay our tithing?” “What if the Church’s position on gay marriage bothers me?”

Those are just a handful of the countless questions Sheri Dew has heard people ask over the years. “May I answer these questions,” she writes, “and any questions you may have, by posing a different question: Are you willing to engage in the wrestle? In an ongoing spiritual wrestle?”

In Worth the Wrestle, Sheri examines the process of asking good questions—whether those questions be doctrinal, procedural, historical, or intensely personal—and learning how to get answers. She demonstrates how to live by faith while seeking greater light and knowledge. And she testifies of principles that are worth wrestling for and of understanding that can be gained in no other way.

My review: Wow…
