My father had beautiful rose bushes. That gene missed me. I did plant vegetables one year when I was much younger. Radishes, lettuce, cantelopes, pumpkins, beans. It was great! Never did it again. I‘m Thinking of maybe buying a tomato plant to grow in a pot on my porch.

Doesn‘t come out until August, but it was calling me. Great thriller with an unreliable narrator. When Liv falls asleep she loses memories of the last two years. And things have happened! I own two of her other books, The Escape Room and Night Swim. They are both moving up on my TBR!

1. Definitely back. My dream would be to go back to the mid 1600‘s in Quebec to meet my ancestors. But I‘d have to learn French too.

2. I just read Sea of Tranquility, the new Emily St. John Mandel, out April 5. There is time travel involved. And it‘s great.

Mickey7: A Novel | Edward Ashton
post image

I haven‘t read science fiction in years and this was so much fun! Mickey7 is an Expendable on a colonizing mission. His job is to do the dangerous stuff. If he dies doing it, they just generate a new one.
In this book, we get a good story along with a thoughtful treatise on immortality. Is a new Mickey the same as the old Mickey.
Read it! It‘s good. Release date: Feb. 15

I adore snow!! When I snows I sit and watch it come down. Fascinating.

As for a favorite winter activity? Reading in a comfy chair watching it snow, of course.

Climate change is really putting a damper on snow in SE Michigan. As a kid we got lots, now we seem to get so much less!

My favorite thing to do? Watch out the window while it snows. I‘m pretty much an indoors lady.

As a former children‘s bookseller, I sold so many of these every winter. I so love this book.

I‘m grateful for blankets. I‘m addicted to blankets and throws. And, since I‘m always cold, I almost always have one on my lap.
