I finally mailed off my last two books for #Round14 of #LMPBC I enjoyed both groups so much #GroupO and #GroupC Thanks to all for all of the great new book selections! I read books I might not have picked up independently and that‘s the best part!! Here‘s a photo of my daughter and I on July 4th. We are on vacation which has made it hard to read as much as I like. But if there‘s any reason not to read, family vacation time is it!! Happy summer!!

BookBosomed1 So glad you participated! Also, lovely photo. :) 1mo
julieclair What a beautiful photo! Looks like you‘re having a great vacation. 😀 I have still not started The Murmur of Bees, my last book for Round 14 Group O. 😞 It got crowded out by July books. 🙃 But I‘m really looking forward to it, especially since it will have the whole group‘s comments! @sprainedbrain @BookBosomed1 1mo

kspenmoll Lovely photo. Love your daughter‘s sunglasses! Hope you enjoyed or ate enjoying your vacation! 4w

How do I say how much I enjoyed this novel?! Just beautiful and I‘m buying another copy to keep in my personal library. The writing was reminiscent of Isabel Allende and I found myself stopping occasionally just to savor a passage. Lovely story with characters who grew on me and a plot that allowed me to escape into the story without looking back. The beginning was a tad slow, but once hooked, I couldn‘t stop reading! 4.5/5⭐️

Readergrrl @julieclair I just read your email to me. I was a little busy this May and June and it took me longer to finish than expected, but I just popped it in the mail to you today. Once I sat down with this novel, I just flew through it! I think you‘ll love it. My apologies for its delay! 2mo
julieclair Looking forward to reading it! No worries about the delay… I have plenty of other books to read, lol. I was just worried it may have “disappeared” from my mailbox… we have been having some problems with that in my neighborhood lately. 🙁 2mo
BookBosomed1 I sent the next two books to you today. @sprainedbrain sent one early to me, so they are now ready for you. Should be there Wed/Thurs 2mo
julieclair Just starting this one today. Not sure where June went! Hoping it‘s okay for me to be late in returning it to you, @sprainedbrain . This has been such a fun group! I‘ve enjoyed reading with you ladies for my first #LMPBC. @BookBosomed1 @Readergrrl Many thanks to @suvata for hosting this wonderful activity! 1mo
LoverOfLearning This is one of my favorite books of all time. Yes the word beautiful fits so perfectly to describe this novel especially the ending. 4w

I enjoyed reading this sweet story. The characters were colorful and charming and I enjoyed the story. While not the most complex plot line, it was just what I needed after reading some heavy literature. Respite after some dark literature is just what I needed! Thank you for sharing with me, @BookBosomed1 I really am glad that I got to know Blue Bishop and her eclectic family! 3.5/5 ⭐️

A lost 400-year-old garden, filled with statues, set in a thick and verdant forest, that harbors clues to an ancient and mysterious puzzle? Yes, please!! Endearing characters, a bit of magic, and the perils of a wartime setting? Even better!

Thanks, @Readergrrl , for this fabulous pick for #LMPBC Round 14 #GroupO.
