Mother-Daughter Book Camp

About the book: The Mother-Daughter Book Club goes to summer camp in this seventh and final installment of the Mother-Daughter Book Club series!

After so many summers together, Emma, Jess, Megan, Becca, and Cassidy are reunited for one final hurrah before they go their separate ways. The plan is to spend their summer as counselors at Camp Lovejoy in a scenic, remote corner of New Hampshire, but things get off to a rocky start when their young charges are stricken with a severe case of homesickness. Luckily, the girls have the perfect cure in mind… 

My review: I was so excited to find an extra book in this series after the author said that Wish You Were Eyre would be the final one! I've loved each and every one of these books, the girls and their moms have become almost like a second family and I love the way that they always watch out for each other!

I loved this one. It's in the same format as the other books in the series, except this time the daughters go to camp as counselors, so the moms don't really play a huge part in it. But that's okay. I loved the whole camp idea and there was one scene that left me laughing out loud, so funny! 

I loved the way the girls came up with an idea to help with the campers homesickness...what better way to cure homesickness than to read a good book together. With treats, of course! 

I also loved that you see the story through each of the girls eyes. I loved the way each of them has grown through this book, but through the whole series really, this book mentions just a little bit of that. I liked the way that life was not perfect for any of the girls, but for Emma in particular, and each of them finds a way to be happy anyway. They all find ways to move on with what's coming next in their lives...college. I'm imagining that they are all having a great college experience and learning tons about themselves and life in general. And, of course, they're all reading a good book somewhere. 

I'm going to miss this series, luckily I can read it again anytime I want. This is really a great series for any young woman to read. Maybe even with her mom!

I was able to borrow this book from my local library.

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.
