I bet Archer has a section covering the Honeypot (Espionage using sexual or romantic bait) in his book. #honeyhoney #ABBAinAugust

The Honey Farm | Harriet Alida Lye
post image

Mediocre Litsy reviews on this one but it‘s on my Goodreads tbr.... Cynthia‘s bee farm is suffering from a drought so she transforms her home into an artists colony with free room & board in exchange for help. Two artists fall in love but the summer is filled with ominous events (lice, frogs, oh my!) that leave Cynthia feeling unsettled. Doesn‘t sound quite like a thriller but not a romance either. I‘m very curious....

MicheleinPhilly Lice??? Are they 6th graders?? 1y
Reviewsbylola I‘m definitely intrigued by the lice. Can you elaborate? 1y
Meredith3 Sounds weird, I don‘t hate it though 🤔 1y

If you love southern fiction, this one is for you!

CeeCee is only 12 years old when she is sent to live with her aunt in Savannah in 1967. She spends the summer getting to know her quirky neighbors, while also battling some truths of her own.

I‘ll be honest, I dislike southern fic, so this one wasn‘t my favorite, but a lot of my friends on GR gave it five stars. #honeyhoney #abbainaugust

Kalalalatja I have to ask, as someone who hasn‘t really read Southern fic, why don‘t you like it? 1y
Cinfhen I agree, this was ok 1y
Mdargusch I never did read this but maybe I will. 🤷🏼‍♀️ 1y

Reviewsbylola It just feels too fluffy and saccharine for me. Apparently The Help is southern fic though and I loved that, so maybe there‘s hope! @Kalalalatja 1y
Mamashep It was a bit safe. But I did love the characters. 1y
Kalalalatja Ah, that makes sense! 1y
LeahBergen I like what is usually termed “Southern Gothic”; you know, the darker and nastier stuff. 😆 1y
Reviewsbylola Yessssssss. I can totally get down with that!! @LeahBergen 1y
emilyhaldi Lol I‘ll be honest too.... this ain‘t for me. I‘m with @LeahBergen dark and gothic vs sweet and fluffy any day! 🖤 1y
Reviewsbylola I can‘t really imagine a book you would hate more tbh. 😂😂 @emilyhaldi 1y
Meredith3 Hmm I‘m not sure how much southern fiction I‘ve read 🤔 1y
emilyhaldi LOLOL 1y

jenniferw88 @Cinfhen 😂 I was actually looking for books to read for next year (I'm compiling my own list of prompts to use) when I stumbled across the question and thought 'that will do for today!' 😂 1y

Honey Wilkes is in love with Charles Hamilton and everyone assumes they will be married until Scarlett O‘Hara swoops in and takes him for her own. Honey‘s sister, India, resents Scarlett for that devious action and blames Scarlett for her brother‘s death. Honey does not make it into the movie, however, and India becomes a combination of the two characters.
#honeyhoney #abbainaugust

Betty Other characters were omitted from the movie too. 1y
emilyhaldi Fun fact!! I didn't know she was omitted from the movie. Clever thinking on this prompt 😉 1y
Reviewsbylola I really felt for poor Honey. Scarlett is ruthless!! 1y

They say you catch more flies with #honeyhoney, but I‘m not interested in catching flies, so I went with an almond croissant instead 🥐 (no, I don‘t know what I‘m talking about either, I‘m grasping at straws with this prompt 😅)

It is new book, coffee and croissant o‘clock in my world, and I‘m so ready to continue my #ManBooker longlist binge with this beauty 👌

#ABBAinAugust #Currentlyreading

AnneCecilie Really looking forward to hearing your thoughts about this one. The cover is stunning though 😍 1y
Mdargusch Great photo though! 😁 1y
emilyhaldi Oooohhhh so looking forward to your thoughts on this one!! (And omg I'm obsessed with anything almond but especially croissant🤤 1y

Cinfhen Echoing all the girls!!! 😍😍😍 1y
BarbaraBB Me too! 1y
Kalalalatja @AnneCecilie I only got about 20 pages in, and then I got distracted. The writing style is quite special, and I think I‘ll need to get used to it, but their have been some killer quotes already! 1y
Kalalalatja @emilyhaldi it was divine! It has won the award for Aarhus‘ (my city) best croissant, and I get why 🤤🤤 and the book is interesting, but it takes some getting used to the writing style. I have high hopes for it, so we will see 🤞 1y
Cinfhen I‘m gonna request a Kindle book sample so I can see what the writing style is like. 😉 1y
Kalalalatja @Cinfhen good idea! It won‘t be for everyone, lots of LONG sentences 😳 1y
Meredith3 I feel you! No idea what to post with this prompt today. Beautiful book cover! 1y

First book that popped into my mind for #HoneyHoney . #ABBAinAugust

Cinfhen This was a really good read ~ reminded me of THE HELP 1y
Librarybelle You‘re right, @Cinfhen ...I never drew a connection between this and The Help, but they are similar and would be a good recommendation for each book. Thanks! 1y
Cathythoughts Very good 👏🏻👏🏻👍🏻 1y

Mdargusch I loved this book and now I have to think of something different to use! 🤔 1y

Reviewsbylola Good pick! I don‘t remember much of this one either. It‘s been too long! 1y
Meredith3 Nice choice! 1y

The song #honeyhoney brought to mind this entertaining and pretty cheesy movie, as it‘s one of the more memorable soundtrack. There‘s also a sequel to this, which I haven‘t watched. 👂 🐛
🤷‍♀️ that‘s the best I can come up with for today..I feel crappy today. 😕

TrishB Hope you‘re feeling better soon 💕 the follow up film is cheesy and fun too. 1y
batsy Take care and feel better soon ❤️ Sorry I wasn't able to get the Ruth Ware book in the mail this week. I'm thinking I'll do it next week after the long weekend or it'll be sitting in the PO like last time 😬 1y

#AbbaInAugust Day 29: Perfect for #HoneyHoney is Fats‘ Nonfiction picturebook Wednesday contribution today. As noted in her review: The book explores and investigates the different factors that may have caused the disappearance of the honeybees. Overall, Sandra Markle‘s book has a lot of information that sheds light on a rather grave mystery. Full review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-iR9

Cinfhen Love the graphics and book sounds fascinating 🐝 1y
Mdargusch Such a big mystery and so sad. 1y
emilyhaldi I've read a lot of articles about this predicament and it's quite troubling!! 1y
Reviewsbylola Sounds very interesting! 1y

I enjoyed this book of poetry, I know it‘s not traditional and not even poetry to some people- but there‘s room for all!

Cathythoughts Great pic 👍🏻 1y
arlenefinnigan People being snarky about this and saying it isn't really poetry remind me of the Adrian Mitchell quote: "most people ignore most poetry because most poetry ignores most people” 1y
Cinfhen Preach @arlenefinnigan 🙌🏻I loved this collection ~ well done 💟 1y

Suet624 @arlenefinnigan perfect quote. 👍🏼 1y
Kalalalatja @arlenefinnigan perfect quote! 🙌 1y
Erinreadsthebooks Yesssss! I wish people would apply your quote to everything. If we swapped the word poetry with 'religion' or 'marriage' or 'love' but finished with "there's room for all," just think how much better the world could be. 1y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @arlenefinnigan I love that! Great quote 1y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I loved this poetry book too, no matter what you want to call it, it spoke to me too. 1y
Mdargusch I figured this would be mentioned for this prompt! 👍🏼 1y
Readingismyescape I loved this book. It really spoke to me. (edited) 1y
emilyhaldi Someday I would like to give this a read 🖤 1y
Reviewsbylola I haven‘t read this one because I‘m usually pretty picky about poetry, but maybe some day. 1y
DimeryRene This was my first book of modern poetry. And I‘ve been obsessed ever since. I started a blog recently and I talk so much about poetry. Literally obsessed. 💖💖 1y
