I picked this book based on the cover alone, and I‘m happy to say it worked out! It was told in three timelines but all centered around one English garden. It‘s so super cold here this week I enjoyed reading about a garden in bloom.
Book That #BeginsWith #Garden Day 3. From my review of this book: Yet again, Chris Van Allsburg effectively played around with the boundaries of the real and the fantastical, taking the reader to an awesome surreal journey you can‘t possibly miss: https://wp.me/pDlzr-1Yo
Just realised I‘m wearing pants that nearly match my book! Book lovers eventually come to resemble their books right?
It's immediately apparent to me how much research went into this book. You can spend a lot of time investigating the illustrations. #gazingbooks
My second Jólabókaflód joy! Thank you so much @MittenGirlPeach for picking such a wonderful book for me - I can‘t wait to read it!, and for sending yummy s‘mores chocolate *and* beautiful pens!! I absolutely love it all!! Merry Christmas!!
#Top21of21. Lots of good reading this year. Loved all these books (even Matrix by Lauren Groff 😮 ).My most MOST favourites are An Episode of Sparrows; Ducks, Newburyport; The Street; Wayward, and I Am I Am I Am. Oh, and The Cazalet Chronicles and all the titles in Laurence's Manawaka series.🙂
Thanks for the tag @Ruthiella @Centique @Nute @Graywacke And thanks @Cinfhen for getting it going!
Well, that was completely delightful. Originally #publishedanonymously (to avoid embarrassing her husband it seems!) This is a quiet novella of daily life… of a beautiful garden, bantering with her husband, her children, and an annoying house guest. Charming, gentle and a lovely escape…. A little gem. #pop21 Just 2 to go!!!
