#hyggehourreadathon I spent most of the day on the couch not feeling well- and sweet Saoirse was next to me for most of it. The view out of my window has been a lot of birds i need to identify and yellow yarrow and a late blooming yellow Iris. I‘m sharing my new cozy seating area- i did not use it tonight but i hope to this Summer- on the left is the simple set up, on the right the view. The book was a perfect cozy mystery! Highly recommend.

Chrissyreadit @kspenmoll you inspired me to post my new seating area by your comment on @AllDebooks post. 2w

I‘m so happy to celebrate this season and hope you are too! This is a low key month of Summery Stuff! @AllDebooks has a check in thread and @TheBookHippie has a #wanderlunch thread So i‘d like to ask are there any special June/Summer/MidSummer traditions you‘d like to share?

Chrissyreadit My Summer tradition: My mom, daughter and I all have Summer Birthdays and often host or reserve a Full tea to celebrate (at least in past 8 or so years) Some years it‘s just my mom and I and some years it‘s a gathering- hoping this year to be a gathering one with my daughter present. 2w

I wanted this to be a book i loved- A witch with ability to sense and communicate with animals, an enemies to lovers trope but the angst and poor decisions of the main character really irritated me quite a bit.

This is 26th in the series and i loved it. They are cozy and formulaic. They are not as intense as the first few in the series- definitely growing more cozy in some ways. I love that the author includes NYC history and this book centered around patent medicine and muckraking.

Librarybelle I have a bunch in this series and have yet to read any of them! They sound so good. 1mo

Just finished this #naturalitsy buddy read from April- and I loved it. It was a slow savor through the months. I appreciated the authors battle with depression and the way nature could alleviate the symptoms. I also see nature as healing, although some days are a physical struggle- and was reminded that sometimes it takes work and effort and will be hard initially but in the end will pay off with wonder and perhaps serenity. #litsolace

I will admit- i‘m overwhelmed by astrology, terms, ideas. one thing i liked most about this book was the big focus on New Moon- for beginnings and Full moon for release. I am soothed by cycles and this part did not feel overwhelming with positions and dates and times etc…. I think I would like a copy one day for myself. #travelingstars24

JenniferEgnor I tried to understand astrology, I didn‘t get far. I used to do moon rituals all the time, one for each phase (waxing, waning, full, dark, new). There‘s something so mysterious and magical about the moon. 2mo
wanderinglynn How you feel about astrology is how I feel about tarot! 😆 I get astrology so much more than tarot. 2mo

Does anyone else love Sarah addison Allen as much as I do? In some ways she gave me sanity….I was feeling stressed and depressed with 2 very young children and saw a copy of Garden Spells - at the grocery store! It was an absolute total splurge for me at that time. But i remember reading it and the escape lightened my mood and gave me a much needed break. Anyone else have a book that really helped you through a hard time?

This was not my favorite Heyer- but a lot of that is because I do not speak French and was too tired to use google translate. The story was a Grease in reverse- and I liked the overall end result. Everyone wants Phillip to change- but when he does they realize the original was better.

I love Stephen King- and my late 80‘s reading were full of King, Koontz and Saul. Margaret Atwood (also a favorite) wrote the intro to the 50th anniversary edition- and the Times shares it- It is filled with nuances and information that only make me love Stephen King even more.

i have enjoyed this cozy series- also simultaneously wishing for some vegan cozy mysteries- Are there any?
I like the set up- the main character does seem to insert herself in situations that even for a cozy I‘m surprised work- but they do and it‘s a romp with a grilled cheese shop owner, and all her friends.

planting plans? when do you start planning? What are you planning?
So far my plans are “sort of” simple. I‘m going to try and grow lavender from seed using my greenhouse- so i can plant it around the fenced in part of my yard. My other plans are zinnias and Sunflowers and wildflowers. My last plan is adding 2 plum trees and an apple tree- and using farmers markets for all my fresh food needs. #natuaralitsy #litsolace #springequinox

Princess-Kingofkings I placed an order from Burpee yesterday. For the first time, I ordered a Buddleia plant. They say the butterflies love it! 🦋 3mo
