Blog Tour - Accidentally Me



About the book: WANTED: Pretend stalker. No experience required. Tall, dark, and quirky preferred. Sabrina is desperate to go to her dream college, but her parents want her to stay close to home. If she wants to maintain her perfect child image, Sabrina must break rules that even her rebel sister keeps.

My review: Sabrina...Sabrina...I loved Sabrina in this book. She's just graduated from high school and she's ready to go to college. Only her parents have decided that she needs to go to Boise State because it's close to their home and cheaper. The problem being Sabrina wants to go to Caltech. She knows it's perfect for her intended major. Since she knows there is no way her parents will agree to let her go where she wants, she decides to get a stalker so that they will see she's not safe at home and let her go...I know, flawed thinking!

That's where things get a bit crazy for Sabrina. Because she really doesn't have a stalker and she doesn't really know anyone that could pass for a stalker. So where else do you find a stalker but Facebook. And that's when she remembers Calvin, a guy she knew from high school who would be the perfect stalker, and he agrees to do it for a measly $50. But Sabrina doesn't count on the amount of lies she's going to have to tell about having a stalker. 

It was kind of sad the way Sabrina though of herself as an accident. She thought about it an awful lot because she mentioned being an accident several times. I loved that by the end of the story she saw herself in a bit of a different light, helping her confidence and self worth to grow and feeling that she really does deserve to be happy and live a good life.

This is a cute young adult read that is clean and fun. I loved reading it!

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…
