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....
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
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.
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 👌
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. 😕
#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
