Some Are Brilliant...Some Are Not...

Finishing this...it's about a magical family of mostly daughters. Eons ago a magical flower was discovered deep in the jungles of some exotic places...rain forests, Borneo...places like that...ok...get this...Serena brings this one amazing flower...a gardenia-like flower home with her...hidden in her mass of lovely hair! That one flower is the start of a perfume dynasty but...the perfume gives the wearer success! I love this book! It's magic...but just a teensie bit...and rivalries...and relationships...and lovely smells! And now the flowers are changing and the business is going down! Which dysfunctional sister will step in to save the day? My lips are sealed...oh...and this book has a fawn...a sweet fawn who follows one of the sisters everywhere. If the magic didn't get me...the sweet baby fawn would have...even without any magic. I loved this book!















This one...oh my...I did not love this book...too scripted...too predictable...too much feta...lol...and I wanted to love this book...sigh!















New books! From NetGalley! From Edelweiss! My preferred way to read! Ebooks! Kindle! Amazon! BEA publishers who have reached out to me! Much love and gratitude!






























I might have shared this one already...forgive me if I did. I loved The Summer Girls...by this author!






I am still reading my way through a stack of Last Harvest books from Amazon Vine but I am seeing the light at the end of my bookish tunnel! I have until June 19th to read my over dues. I kind of love this schedule!

Happy Monday!

    2. I think I mentioned last night that I thought our power was going to go out? So I closed down the computer...and it did go out for several hours. Hate that!

      Anyway, I didn't remember that I had entered my comment...glad I got it in there...

  2. I adore Mary Alice Monroe. She'll be here for a lunch next week and I'm still trying to figure out if I can make it.
