Loved this book 💕 The designs aren‘t overly complicated, and you can use a lot of them indoors or outdoors. There are step-by-step illustrations. There‘s something for every budget and gardening skill level. Also, I love that after care was included, so you know how to care for your completed garden. You don‘t need tons of space to create your dream garden. Definitely a keeper.

This book is a new favorite. It covers a broad range. From the physical mechanics of speech, to Susan B. Anthony, Hillary Clinton, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Disney princess movies, the Supreme Court, Circe by Madeline Miller, open office cubicle culture, tips on how to interrupt and tips on how not to get interrupted, political representation quotas, and more. A very approachable, engaging, informative, practical, inspiring read. Loved it 😊

Speaking of Summer | Kalisha Buckhanon
post image
Mehso-so

“I wanted to find the books where the authors had fangs, horns, and blisters on their knuckles.”

I like Buckhanon‘s writing, and her previous book Upstate. I did not like this book. This book isn‘t about Autumn, it‘s not about her missing sister Summer. It is about unreliable narrators, mental illness, trauma, how black men get shot and there are riots, but how so many black women go missing in silence. It‘s about struggle, both real and unreal.

SW-T While I didn‘t care for the book, and found it rambling and slow, I did like the things it covered, even if not the method. Plus, the eight pages that turned everything around and revealed the big plot twist seemed too far in. After the big reveal things made more sense, though the story itself didn‘t improve. 5d

I‘ve heard about their podcast, but I haven‘t listened to it. That said, you don‘t have to follow their podcast to enjoy their book. The book is about their personal lives, how to get on in the world, practice self care, cultural and societal issues, eating disorders, listening to your gut instincts, and the difference between politeness and kindness. They‘re advocates for personal safety and inner strength and worth the read.

To be clear, there‘s nothing wrong with this book. It‘s clear, informative, and there‘s a lot of interesting content. On the other hand, it read like a textbook, and it was a depressing reminder about how huge a role racism and oppression played in the founding of the United States and their continued impact today. There was some positive content too, but the reminders kind of overrode everything else for me. Best read in small doses.

Fake Like Me | Barbara Bourland

A satire on the art world, as well as the complications of establishing an identity. Are you who you think you are, or more what other people experience? A young artist has to recreate her art after her studio burns. Her idol has died, but she gets a chance to stay at the same retreat as people who knew her idol. Only things aren‘t so clear cut or idyllic as she thought. There are deep secrets here that might change her view of everything.

Jade War | Fonda Lee
post image
Pickpick

Hilo, Shae, Anden, Wen, Bero, Mudt, and the rest are back. I‘ll admit to liking Jade City a bit better, but Jade War was more expansive. The clan travels overseas (Anden) and there‘s even more political wrangling. Jade and shine still play a huge role as well. Lee is great at world building and creating a complex but believable empire for her characters to maneuver around in. Jade Legacy should be interesting when it‘s released!

Well, after a judge ok‘d the confiscation of “inappropriate” books at the Rio de Janeiro book fair, activists bought them and handed them out for free. Plus, the local paper put an “inappropriate image” on the front page.

A very interesting read, but also saddening too. While things have certainly improved, it‘s depressing to think people out there still believe in things like eugenics. While a lot of this isn‘t new information, it‘s still well presented. A worthwhile read.

Really enjoyed this book and the women in it. I like that Lee loosely modeled Felicity, Sim, and Johanna on real women who didn‘t fit the mold and struggled against inequality in their respective fields.

Felicity and her companions were flawed, scared, brave, determined, and true to themselves. Loved seeing her interact with Monty and Percy. Even at the end, the women stayed true to themselves, and were determined to live on their own terms.

I‘ve heard this described as Game of Thrones meets Gladiator. Not sure if that‘s accurate, but overall, this is an African inspired revenge fantasy. It features a diverse cast, female mages called the Chosen, dragons, and our hero Tau, set on revenge after a devastating loss. I didn‘t like Tau much, but his motives and actions led the story. I‘ll say this wasn‘t for me, but I did finish and I can see the appeal for others. Love the cover though 😊

Lovely idea book. It covers design basics, theme gardens, such as attracting pollinators, and how to add color, texture, and interest to your garden. It also goes into adding visual interest and focal points with things like walls, arches, rocks, planters, benches, and fun garden statuary. The photographs are gorgeous and inspiring. A lovely book overall, with an emphasis on creating your dream garden, not on plant care. Tons of ideas included.

Ali gets her old college friends get together and then one of them is raped. Even worse, Karen says Ali‘s husband Mike did it. Secrets unfold, and relationships are tested. While it was predictable in places, it was well done enough to keep me reading. Plenty of tension between the characters, the backstory was revealed in flashbacks, and multiple narrators helped move things along. A fast and easy read.

This was a fun, action-packed trilogy. Devi Morris started her adventures in Fortune‘s Pawn. Her memory was erased in Honor‘s Knight. In Heaven‘s Queen, Devi‘s back. She‘s tired of government conspiracies, aliens trying to kill her, and people messing up her beloved armor, Lady Grey. She‘s on a mission, but it‘s tricky when you‘ve got a month to live and everyone‘s trying to stop you from succeeding. Good thing Devi‘s stubborn...and in love.
