Found 2 new succulents on sale at Kroger. Propagating a few leaves that didn‘t make it on the ride home. Any tips on saving dying succulents? I love saving plants from stores!

peanutnine Don't overwater and make sure there's plenty of light! I love propagating succulent leaves but they take a bit to grow roots so be patient ☺️🪴 8h
BooksNBowls @peanutnine thanks! I‘ve heard water propagating is faster so I‘m gonna try that next time! These poor plants were dry as bones. So they got some moist soil, no water. ☺️ 8h

Mehso-so

The ending ruined the entire book for me. It seemed like there was this big build up for nothing. And then a little tease at the end. I‘ll post my spoiler below. It was well written, but she could have went a million other directions with this. 3 stars

BooksNBowls I find the last chapter to be pretty unbelievable because a.) he would never risk his daughters safety by getting that close and b.) even if he did, she didn‘t try to talk to him at all?? I don‘t know if I could have let him walk away like that. I felt like he could have tried harder for them all to be together. But whatever, this was a disappointing story. 6d

Seven Days In June | Tia Williams

Pickpick

Okay I enjoyed our #summerheat pick. I love a second-chance romance and the MCs being authors and secretly writing about each other for a decade was super intriguing. This author hit on racial issues in the writing community, mental health, living with an invisible illness, and the affects mothers have on their daughters. A lot of themes packed into this novel and intricately woven together to create these complex characters! 4 stars!!

Okay, Witches! Here are my picks for #GroupW #LMPBC! Let me know which one y‘all are interested in! I think A Discovery of Witches is long, so I‘m leaning away from that one. Blood Like Magic is also 500 pages I think. Practical Magic is the shortest one, but what do y‘all think? I‘m down for anything!

MoonWitch94 All excellent choices! 2w

Siege and Storm | Leigh Bardugo
post image
Pickpick

The story picks up right where it left off with Alina and Mal in hiding and on the run from the Darkling. Alina changes significantly in this book as she claims more of her power. A huge chunk of the book is just them traveling on the road and it was SLOOOW. Great writing, but not as much action in this one. Not until the very end.

It‘s been a long night… last night my brother in law and one of our friends were in a car accident. My BIL is currently in surgery, but our friend did not make it.. He was such a good, genuine person, funny, & never a stranger to anyone. We are heartbroken over this. Please keep our friend‘s wife & little girl in your thoughts in prayers as they navigate this difficult time. His name was Gerardo. 💜

BooksNBowls Also keep my BIL in your thoughts as he comes out of surgery & begins to recover. 2w

This was a rare occasion where I actually watched the show first before reading the books, and I wish I didn‘t! The books do a much better job at world-building, though there were aspects I enjoyed about the show as well (such as showing Mal‘s journey and Alina & Mal‘s childhood/friendship). An excellent start to the series! Diving immediately into Siege & Storm! 😁

Okay, in the end, Confess was just a meh. I didn‘t hate it, didn‘t fall in love with it, just meh. Not sure why, I didn‘t really connect with the main characters. I was so focused on how he knew her before that it was hard to focus on what was happening. Maybe it‘s me? 3 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️

A fantastic ending to a truly wonderful, magical series! I can‘t wait to read more about Jacks in the Once Upon a Broken Heart series. He was one of my favorite side characters.

600+ pages- every book in the Outlander series ✅ (more like 800+ pages, which is precisely why I‘m stuck on book #4 for 6+ months…) #bookmoods

BooksNBowls @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks it‘s definitely has to be extremely engaging and excellent story telling for me to stick it out. I think Diana Gabaldon is brilliant, but sometimes she‘s extremely detailed. I‘m in love with the show so I‘m sticking it out but I haven‘t picked it up in a few months. Might take me years to read the entire series 😬 3w

Slowly working my way through Queen Colleen‘s books.. Decided to start Confess and the art work is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! I love how Colleen makes reading her books a submersive experience, whether it‘s a playlist of songs or these beautiful works of art to go along with the story. She also incorporated her fans‘ REAL confessions and some of them have my jaw dropping, like are these really real?! 😱 I already have a feeling I‘m gonna love this one!

“Twelve hours ago I received the phone call telling me I‘m going to die today, and I‘m more alive now than I was then.” In a world where death is predicted and everyone knows when it‘s coming, 2 boys meet on an app to spend their last day together. Little do they know, while approaching death, they learn how to live. Didn‘t think I‘d like this at first, but the characters grew on me! Beautiful & reflective! How would you spend your End Day?

Verity | Colleen Hoover
Pickpick

I finally did it. I read Verity. It was good and enjoyed Colleen‘s suspense writing. I hope she does more of this in the future. This wasn‘t a 5 star read for me though. There‘s a few things I wanted her to address, a few things I would change. I‘ll share my spoilers below, please don‘t open them until you‘ve read it yourself!

BooksNBowls Firstly, which version do you think is the truth? I think both have truth in them. I think Verity DID do it, but I think Jeremy also knew about it. Yeah, Jeremy isn‘t innocent here. I think he left the manuscript for Low to find on purpose. I was a little let down that her sleepwalking didn‘t lead to anything more sinister or relevant at all. 1mo
