The Gardener in me wants to grow Blue Eyed Marys. Happily Missouri Botanical Garden says it's possible. https://www.missouribotanicalgarden.org/PlantFinder/PlantFinderDetails.aspx?taxo...
This is one of those books that doesn't have a lot of happy moments but still manages to make you feel hopeful. It helps you to remember how far we've come(although there's still a lot that needs done) in the matter of equality.

Crinoline_Laphroaig Been hearing good things about this book for awhile. Then this happened:
https://www.mhpbooks.com/jojo-moyes-new-book-bears-striking-similarities-to-a-re...
Reese Book Club picked JoJo Moyes book for it's November read. Which in my mind didn't seem fair. It will get a ton of sales because of Reese. I wanted to read this one because it came out first.

Your favorite books to get you in the mood for Thanksgiving? 🦃🦃🦃

Hoopiefoot I know it sounds strange, but for me it‘s Moby Dick. I spent one very quiet Thanksgiving in grad school alone reading Moby Dick, eating pie, and cat sitting for my friend. It was delightful & now I always think of Moby Dick at Thanksgiving. 1w
Crinoline_Laphroaig @Hoopiefoot What a delightful memory. 1w
Sace I tend so associate A Tree Grows in Brooklyn with Thanksgiving. I did one of many rereads when my daughter was in college and just my husband, daughter and I spent Thanksgiving together. That's only happened twice. Normally we are with the in laws. 1w

I should have read this series in order. When I read The Proposal back when it was Reese's Book Club choice, I found it kinda Meh. I really liked this first one in the series. Would probably like 2nd one more having seen Carlos as the friend, now I want to see him as hero. Yes this one had that angsty bit where you just want to yell at characters 'JUST SAY WHAT YOU FEEL'! But worth it for a good happy ending. 💑

Crinoline_Laphroaig Looking forward to reading next in the series and Christmas one. It was synopsis of Royal Holiday(Christmas Romance in London, with characters of a certain age) that made me take a second chance on this series. I now see why so many people like it. 1w

emmaturi I hadn't realised this was a series! I also wasn't too impressed with The Prosposal. Which is the first one? 1w
Crinoline_Laphroaig @emmaturi 1- The Wedding Date 2 - The Proposal 3 - The Wedding Party 4 - Royal Holiday 1w
TheBookStacker I‘ve read all of them in order and the proposal is still my least favorite. 🤷🏽‍♀️ 1w
Crinoline_Laphroaig @TheBookStacker At this point I can't even remember the end of The Proposal. My Library has it, so I'm gonna skim through it while waiting on hold of Wedding Party. 1w
Crinoline_Laphroaig @TheBookStacker Library Hold is way long. Worth buying? 1w
TheBookStacker I burned through Royal Holiday on a 4 hour plane ride so I‘d say yes. But I‘m biased because I love all holiday type books. 1w

Now for the eyeglass rant. She squints. She orders from memory rather than put her glasses on in front of a good looking man. I've got no patience for this. I've worn glasses since I was 8 years old. Thick lenses, got called 4 eyes, can't see anything without them glasses. All y'all that don't need them until you're 40 and then just for reading? Just suck it up a put them on! 🤓

Crinoline_Laphroaig This had so much going for it. Charleston, historical mystery, old houses and gardens. All of which are things I love. But it's hard to like the Heroine Melanie. She's incredibly dumb when it comes to men. Continually acting like a teenager when she is 39 years old is off-putting. She guzzles Cokes (the soda not the drug) eats nothing but sweets, & calorie laden Southern food yet never gains weight. Doesn't help with the likeability factor. 3w
Crinoline_Laphroaig Love interest Jack isn't much better. Most of the time he's an ass. Although his 13 year old boy humor is a match for Melanie's silliness. If the romance had been between people who acted like adults, it would have been so much better.

So happy to hear The End. Been listening to off & on since my Austen in August reread of Northanger Abbey. Thought I should have a frame of reference to what Jane Austen was poking fun at. I could only take so much of the Histrionics & would bail for awhile. Apparently no Editors in 1794 when this was published. It rambles on and on. Finally I can get this 31 h 15 m 42 s mess off my phone. 🙄

Been repotting & rearranging house plants for winter. Great Audiobook. Multiple narrators so it was easy to realize you had switched character viewpoint. Spies with Literary twist. I vaguely remember struggling through Dr Zhivago as a teenager, probably after watching the movie. Didn't know any of its publication history, so I found Cold War drama of that fascinating. And I want the dress on cover. 👗

Crinoline_Laphroaig @Lynnsoprano Here in Oklahoma we always have that one cold snap so you have to bring everything in. Then it warms up again. But it's starting to cool back down. I need to clean out my herb bed for fall. Summer herbs are gone but Rosemary, Sage, and Lavender look good all winter unless we have bitterly cold winter. Then after that time to plant bulbs. Lots of audiobook time! 4w

Definitely deserving of my hoarded tea from India. Writing is witty. Interesting look into Indian American families. How they balance Traditional Culture with Modern Life.
I particularly loved the message of standing up for yourself. To not be afraid to live your life as you are right now. You don't have to look like a supermodel to be happy. Also be sure to read the heartfelt Author's note.
Now if only I had some Gulab jamun. 🤓

Wow. School Stress these days. “They make us think the grade is more important than the learning, and that‘s messed up. We‘re all overwhelmed. You‘re not alone.”

But on the bright side. Flirting by quoting Harry Potter. 🧙‍♂️

Slajaunie It‘s not about the grade either. It‘s about the test score. ☹️ 1mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig @Slajaunie I don't have children so I don't know anything about this in real life. I realize this was fiction but I was appalled by the fact a High School kid was getting 5 hours or less sleep at night so he could keep up with all his classes. 1mo

Suffragettes - the ultimate example of Well Behaved Women Rarely Make History. Good balance of Romance and Historical Fiction. A bit of fluff, yet still inspiring read of Rebellious women who earned my right to vote.

Crinoline_Laphroaig I appreciate this trend in Book Covers. Interesting modern artwork instead of cringeworthy heaving bosoms. It reflects that there is more to the story than just romance. You don't have to be embarrassed to be seen reading in public. #coverlove

As a Vegetarian I had hard time w/ discussions of hunting & descriptions of animal skins. Glad neither Georgie or Darcy participated in killing of animals. I'm not saying it should have been left out. It is historically accurate. As is depiction of British Aristocracy. It's the ugly side of the British empire. It just made it less of the happy read I come to expect from this series. 🕵️‍♀️ #royalspyness

Crinoline_Laphroaig I did like was Georgie and Darcy working as a team. Learning to make compromises in their marriage.

Very reminiscent of Daphne Du Maurier's writing style of Rebecca with English Estate called Cloudesley, Family Secrets, and Forbidden Love.

Reading Historical novels I often find myself wondering what I would do if I lived in that Time Period. Don't think I would have been a very good nurse but I would have made an excellent Land Girl. Land Girls and Herb Garden was the most interesting part of story. Rest was fairly predictable. It lacked Author's usual sparkle that I've come to expect from reading her Royal Spyness Series. Different genre so understand change in tone. 👩‍🌾
