As a Gardener I may know a few Plant Obsessed People. I could definitely identify with Crazy Talk To Plants People. Lots of witty dialogue. This a book for Gardeners. I understand the Gardener vs Bunny Horde dilemma but a couple times it turn a bit unsettling. I have good bunnies in my yard. Gracie and Bun-Bum are well behaved. 🐰

Crinoline_Laphroaig It did however take me almost 6 weeks to read this book. Partly because it's one busiest times of the year in the garden. Too much to do! Also I kept laying it aside because a New Release or Library Hold would come in. Finally towards last third of the book I really wanted to know what happens or maybe I was just tired of it on my nightstand. 6mo
Tamra This sounds fun! 6mo
Tamra Did you know there is a “Front Yard” by this author too? I was looking for your tagged book on Libby and instead found this other. 6mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig @Tamra I need to read that as well 6mo
CouronneDhiver Interesting! 6mo

Serious climb up Spring Mt TBR! 9 Books including whopping big Middlemarch. Juliet Stevenson Audiobook was perfection. 3 more #readwhatyouloveproject2019 with Chronicles of St Mary's. Read my first Neil Gaiman for #booksandbrewsclub and promptly read another. Sprinkle in a few friend's recommendations and kept up with Readalongs. 🧗‍♂️📚🤓

December is all about Christmas books, Long awaited Queen of Air and Darkness, One last Phryne, and Poldark. I'm determined that Poldark is off my shelf this year. 📚

✔ Phryne #18 this morning. Almost thru Lost for Words for #booksandbrews on Sat. 🤞 Audio of DOA before Sun Premiere of Outlander. Then I begin my audio adventure thru Tolkien. Lord of Shadows will be a skim thru to get ready for Queen of Darkness on Dec 4. Nov is good month for books on food and The Great War. And then there is Poldark I'm determined to finish series this year. Takes up way to much shelf space. 📚

Quite a climb up #mounttbr w/Phryne. Two #greatamericanreads - Dunces & Alaska. Several #bookclub & #readmyshelves reads.
Most Inspiring - We Should All Be Feminists
Long Awaited Favorites - Guides to Getting Lucky & Petticoats and Piracy.
My Absolute No 1 Favorite - Finally reading how #malec adopted Rafe in The Land I Lost. I laughed, I cried, I just got all the feels. 😍

Took a long lunch so I could finish and be able to donate to the library when in town tomorrow. A friend gave me the complete series. I am determined to get them off my shelves by the end of the year. It really is just one very long soap opera. I'm finally past where the show is. Makes for more interesting reading. Last few pages were particularly enthralling.

"Hold, sir! I am armed." ?This is is awesome Elizabeth moment. Rest is a convoluted story that involves Gretna Green elopements, bigamy, mistaken identity, duels, and falling for the person who has always been there trope. Big mess of crazy.

Leniverse Oh dear. I do have a weakness for duels and mistaken identities. It's a shame this one doesn't do it well! But yes, Steampunk Darcy has airships and airpirates, robot servants (automations), slime rain, laser pistols (but sadly no dueling) and obvious romance. 😂 2y
