For beginners and experts alike, it‘s everything you need to know about saving, storing, and sowing seeds, dividing plants, cutting bulbs, cloning, and transplanting your plants. It also covers plant names, propagation, and reproduction so you can successfully determine the right method to use on your plants. This book is such a great resource! So happy I found it 😊

Vessel: A Novel | Lisa A. Nichols

The lone survivor of a space mission returns six years later, long after being presumed dead by everyone, including her husband, daughter, and friends. Things are different. Something happened on that mission, but she can‘t remember what. It‘s like there‘s a block on her memories...put there by intentionally...but the crew was alone...right? This could be a stand alone or the setup to a sequel. Plenty of tension and psychological drama.

A fun read about the chemistry of food. The “why” and “how” of cooking and baking made accessible, entertaining, and fun. Very approachable style, with engaging writing. The nice thing is that it talks about everyday items you already have in your kitchen, like flour, salt, milk, and eggs. Everything you need to know about boiling, freezing, volume, substitutions, and having fun in your kitchen.

The Good Luck Girls | Charlotte Nicole Davis

Aster, Clementine, Tansy, Mallow, Violet. Loved the world building and characters, including Zee. The book was about the Good Luck Girls, and all the horrors that actually entailed. A wonderful mix of dystopian and western, with a strong dollop of survival, friendship, coming of age, responsibility, and adventure. Aster has so much more to do, and there‘s Violet, and I really want book two now so I know what‘s next! More please!

This collection of short stories showcases black women and girls in different ways, not as society expects them to be. Loved the opening lines of the first story: “We walk down the halls like we are coming to beat you up. Even teachers move out the way.” Your expectations are set...but they‘re your expectations, not who these young women are or could be if people saw beneath the veneer. Each story tells a tale, and each is interesting.

Eve Silver knows gothics. Perfect atmosphere, sticks to the gothic elements with a nod to modern sensibilities, and while parts of it were predictable (it‘s a gothic), there was a well done surprise included. If you like gothics, this was a good one.

I‘d been eyeing this one and after listening to an interview posted by @MandaMT gave it a try. There are several things I liked. Berens covers vegetables like parsnips, radishes, turnips, rutabagas, celery root, and kohlrabi. Loved the introductions and how she gave advice on selection, storage, and even glycemic indexes. The recipes were followed by variations so you could experiment with more options. Nice illustrations too. ⬇️

SW-T The actual recipes didn‘t do much for me though. However, they‘re starting points for new techniques and possibilities. So considering all the pro‘s, going with a pick on this one. 3w
MandaMT That‘s how I feel about the recipes too! Some have worked for me, some have not. But it does give me a lot of stuff to try. 2w

Perfume: The Alchemy of Scent | Jean-Claude Ellena
post image
Pickpick

An interesting look at the history of perfume and it‘s evolution into the scents we know today. From how your olfactory system works, to the chemical components of fragrance, and how natural and synthetic ingredients become a well-blended fragrance. It was interesting to see how cultural trends, science, and improved technology shaped changes in fragrances as well. Somewhat technical, but still accessible.

Mae and Mona were both women used to being in charge, which fueled a lot of their conflicts. Colm and Arlen were okay. While it wasn‘t bad, it was interesting to see the whole scheme revealed in the last chapter. Book two sounds like it might be better. It was interesting to see that Mae never considered what her plot with Val would mean long term. 🙄

Described as Pride & Prejudice with dragons 🐉

Too predictable for me. Not a series I‘ll continue. Did like the mythical creatures and how they were woven into daily life. Aliza was ok but Alistair made a horrible first impression and never recovered. He later apologized and said he wanted to be better, but it felt manufactured. Some characters stay with you long after you finish the book, but none of these will stay with me. Fell flat overall.

Thoughtful, timely, and engaging, though perhaps a touch dry at times. Blackstone takes the time to distinguish between the childless and the childfree. She combines existing data with original research to dispel myths about the childfree and discusses societal, religious, and cultural preconceptions about parenthood. Worthwhile read, whether you‘re childfree, have kids, or are undecided.

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 😊
