I haven‘t heard from my #auldlangspine match at all so I don‘t feel so bad bailing on this. It‘s a long-ish audiobook at 13 hours and I gave it 2 but it felt like a chore. Too overwritten for my taste and I didn‘t connect with the characters or story. It has got some good reviews on here and maybe better in print, but not for me.

monalyisha I‘m sorry to hear that! Never feel bad bailing — & I wish you had more (or any!) engagement this month. I appreciate your participatory efforts! 4w
Reggie I never do this challenge because I would put on my Devil ears and make a list of nothing but the scariest of horror books. There is always worse…..(rubs hands together and laughs evilly.) 😜 3w
youneverarrived @monalyisha I had two great matches in previous years so I‘ll just count those as a win 💕 3w
youneverarrived @Reggie 🤣🤣 horror is one genre I couldn‘t read 🙈 3w

Here are 3 books that each have a beautiful #InsectCover only Weyward is a new book or new-ish since I finished it in October (& loved it-it made my best of 2023 list). The other two I read some time ago but I love the covers & they might be new to you! 🦋🐞🪲🐛🐝💚

Just a #christmasflowers photo for those of you in the Northern Hemisphere - its peony time here in New Zealand. I put some plastic holly berries in there to make it more Christmassy 😂😂 ( @CarolynM $20 worth of flowers from the local fruit shop - love our fruit shop! 😀)

The Language of Flowers: A Novel | Vanessa Diffenbaugh
post image

I just finished reading The Language of Flowers. It‘s a coming of age story about a girl who has just been emancipated from foster care. Basically the only thing she likes besides food is flowers, and her knowledge of them steers her life in an interesting direction.
When I first started it I had a hard time putting it down. It had a satisfying conclusion.

Fresh-Picked Poetry: A Day at the Farmers' Market | Michelle Schaub, Amy Huntington

I really enjoyed this poetry collection book. I thought that it would be perfect for all ages as it is very expressive. The poems are very versatile as it shares the unique adventure of farmer's markets and the hidden joys that come with it.

Sally's Sweet Corn
“Get your roasted corn here!
Can't be beat this time of year!
Eat it fast!
Eat it slow!
Crunch in circles!
Nibble rows.
Wipe the butter off your chin.
Ear to ear, you're sure to grin.
Quick, before it disappears!
Step right up the sweet corn's here!“
