It is a truth universally acknowledged, that few Pride & Prejudice retellings are allowed precious space on my All Things Austen. bookshelf. This was Library borrow that I will definitely buy a Print Copy for my Forever Shelf. P & P is, I think the hardest Austen to modernize. Whole 'you must marry or starve in the hedgerows' doesn't work in our Western society. Soniah Kamal brilliantly makes it work in Pakistan. 🤓

😱 The horror! Milk has gone bad. About the only tea I like with lemon is Lady Grey. Maybe it's the hints of citrus? Lots of surprises in Timeless Gave me all the feels! Biffy and Lyle. 😍 I want a ride in Dandelion Fluffy Upon a Spoon aka Buffety. Madam Lefoux is always a delight. That ending! 😲

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. 2w

Quite different that other Granchester novels, no mysteries to solve. Glimpse of Detective Sidney. 📺 & 📚Sidney go their separate ways later in the series, this will appeal to Fans of both. Sidney becoming Sidney in War, Peace, Faith, and Love. All the moments that make him the man he is. Insight into a beloved character. Sidney could convince me to go to Church. 🤓 #sidneychambers #bookvstv

April is time to get back in the garden; which means Audiobooks. Working my way through Chronicles of St Mary's and keeping up with Parasol Protectorate Readalong. 📚

I found this at used bookstore not long after returning home from a trip to The Willa Cather Foundation & Memorial Prairie. Writing style is a bit dated. No big tell all moments; just straight forward account of Willa Cather's life & writing. Absolute best part was inside was newspaper clipping dated Sep 15th 1973 from the National Observer. Article about life of Willa Cather. Also small notice of the death of Edna Lewis. 😁 #treasuretrove

Crinoline_Laphroaig It's made me want to read complete works of Willa Cather in publication order. Cather feels like a Summer read. I've not read some of her lesser know books just 1mo

Detectives named Ian. I always end up wanting to give them a hug & make them a cup of tea. Edinburgh comes across as more character than just setting. Has me longing to go back. As to Goodreads review about Sex & Violence; 'Bosh and Bumkum' as Ian's boss would say. Murder mystery, yes there is a bit of violence. Nothing so graphic, that it bothered me to read it before bed. Sex? Barely any & mostly implied. Definitely read next in series.🤓

"Like many great cities, Edinburgh had a variety of moods. It could be warm and welcoming, in the boisterous, dangerous way of Scottish cities, sly and beckoning as a sloe- eyed whore, or grim and foreboding." Loving descriptions of city. Only had a day there. Himself had been graciously following me around Jane Austen's England; let him pick what to do. He picked Castle & Royal Mile.Would love to go back & settle in for awhile.

Honestly I'm reading this because someone on Goodreads gave it 1Star Review instead of Shelving it as DNF. Don't know how to make a dedicated DNF shelf? Delete book and move on. It's not fair to give a bad review just because it's not 'Cozy' mystery you prefer. While they didn't actually finish the book; they did count all the Swear words they came across. 🤪

Deeply disappointed that main character Paige never wears anything remotely like the gorgeous cove. It's all dowdy outdated business wear, cut offs & stained tshirts. Pet Peeve of mine when cover doesn't match character. Aside from that it's a great story on dealing with grief, the suburban obsession with turfgrass, crazy office politics & gardening as therapy. I personally work out my worries with weeding.👩‍🌾

Quiet rainy Saturday. 1st part I wasn't sure what was going on. Checked Goodreads reviews and saw that it was 3 Novellas that came together in the end. Once I started 2nd part I was hooked. Excepting getting up for more tea, I finished book in one 'sitting'. Few unanswered questions at the end but that went with not knowing all about people who disappeared in WW2. 📚 #springstacks #lazybookday #mountbr #covercaughtmyeye #literarygardens

A friend recommended Sonali Dev to me. Her 2nd book in series Bollywood Bride has been in my TBR for awhile. I don't think you have to, but since my Library had this 1st one, thought I would read in order. Wasn't crazy about this one. To many Romance Novel Tropes: misunderstanding, helpess female, & bad boy changed by good girl. Going to read next one and give author another chance.

Liked the Irishnish of the language & setting. Although book is in Co Mayo, in my mind I kept picturing Inistioge in Co Kilkenny. Didn't seem like Instioge was hiding any deep dark secrets while I was there, but you never know when you are outsider in a small town. Really wanted to like this one but just couldn't do the violence & descriptions of dead people. Did want to know the ending. ☘☘☘ #skimmedandreadlastfewchapters

Obviously I'm a plant person. This book was in the free library at local coffee shop, I excitedly took it home. Weird but I was intrigued by plant lore. Then let's just say if you are animal lover you will be appalled. Skimmed last few Chapters. Unlikeable main character got even more unlikable, crazy people crazier, and then there's a even weirder ending. If it wasn't for the plant portion of the book it would have been a total waste of time.
