The Pursuit

About the book: Let the chase begin . . . 

Six years ago, with the financial collapse of her country and the death of her parents, Carrie Ashworth swore to protect her siblings. She has fought to build a life for them in her illegal clan. Now home and recovering from a government-spread virus, she's ready to pursue a little happiness of her own. With Greg.

Greg Pierce has no plan to join the growing rebellion or their "Live free or die" mentality. Even after compulsory military service deepened his hatred of President Rigsby's regime, he wants nothing more than to leave it all behind and start a quiet life with Carrie in Logan Pond. But when word reaches them that Oliver, their patrolman friend and protector, is missing, Carrie and Greg are thrown into a race for survival. Chief Jamansky has discovered Oliver's little secret and now he wants revenge, forcing their clan to consider abandoning Logan Pond forever.

In this battle for siblings and friends, for homes lost and freedoms stolen, the citizens must ask: How far would you go to pursue happiness?

The stakes are pushed to their boundaries in this highly anticipated final book in Rebecca Belliston's Citizens of Logan Pond trilogy, bringing her epic love story to an unforgettable end.

My review: I was looking forward to the conclusion of this series, because Liberty left me really hanging and I wanted to know just what happened to all of these characters I had grown to love.

I like Carrie, I love the way that she is so naive and really still expects the best of really everyone and everything around her. But at the same time, her naivety, gets her into trouble in the world that she lives in. I love the way that she goes through many hard things and is really able to bounce back from her hard times and still be okay. I love the way she's really into gardening and wants to use that to unite all of the rebels in the area and trade for things that everyone needs and wants. 

I like that Greg is really an opposite to Carrie. He is less naive and really knows how the world they live in works and that's good, because he's seen lots of the way the world operates and he's able to get himself and really their whole family out of sticky situations all the time.

Carrie's siblings are pretty prominent in this one, and I love the way that they think and that they are able to care for themselves and bounce back from their difficulties as well. 

For me, this book did not disappoint! It was full of surprises and the whole thing left me hanging plot wise until the very end. I was happy with how everything turned out, it really was a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy.

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 …
