This book was really good. It's one of a kind and really puts you in the main character's shoes. Highly recommend 💜

Tamra @DogMomIrene definitely a man of his time and yes, thank goodness no Twitter! 😏 1d
Tamra @MicheleinPhilly exactly! 😜 1d
Tamra @GingerAntics no inhibitions! 🫢 1d
GingerAntics @Tamra that‘s for sure. Love the descriptions, though. It could have been “these women are so ugly,” but no. Far more poetic than that. 🤣😂🤣 1d

The book tells the life of Kya, "The Marsh Girl" who has been abandoned by her entire family before she is old enough to take care of herself. Her one day at school teachers her how different she is from everyone else who lives in town. She spends the next several years fighting to survive on her own with little help. She lives in the marsh among her wildlife friends, but still yearns for human connections. Man vs nature is a key theme. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I dunno. I liked each aspect separately, but not all together. Like the beautiful nature writing, the unique characters, the murder mystery, the romance… I felt like if the book had committed to being “a mystery” or “a romance” or something I might have felt less on the fence. The beautiful writing is SO THERE. I just wasn‘t wholly on board with the choice of genre. It wasn‘t quite for me, but I would definitely recommend it to others :)

Did you know most earthworms in the U.S. are non-native, including nightcrawlers? I picked this because I enjoy Stewart's Kopp Sisters books. She made worms interesting and I learned how important they are. First book finished for #MarvellousMay @Andrew65

Tamra This was a very interesting portrait of worms! 4d
Andrew65 Sounds very interesting, well done 👏👏👏 4d
Linsy I might need to read this one! Saying I loved Wicked Plants is an understatement. 3d

This is such a lovely book, it gives you a little overview of a different animal from British wildlife day by day for each day of the year. Each days reading is very short and it‘s beautifully written. Also got this second hand for Qa so it‘s been a great buy!

I give this book a so-so because before reading it I wasn‘t really into birds, so all the tweeting (actually spelled tweet noises) was a little too intense for me. But, I don‘t give it a thumbs down either because I learned so much from this book. I definitely notice and listen to the birds more, and feel more part of the natural world. Which I think was the objective of the author. The 1st and last chapter are great; Perfect gift for any birder.

I am OVER THE MOON (no pun intended) with my #recipeswap surprise from @ErinSueMreads 😊 Beautiful book selection, it's just what I needed. Plus, I have not one, but THREE new Tarot cloths that I can use in my practice! This was such a generous addition to the swap 💜

I'll let you know when my card gets here! My local post office has been pretty short-staffed, so it may be a bit...I can't wait to see what recipes you picked! @BennettBookworm
