#freebook Thank you @PutnamBooks for this copy to review!
•
Ania Khurana is one of the leading socialites in Delhi, India. She knows who comes from old money and new, and all the latest gossip, After Ania has successfully found a love match for her spinster aunt, she sets her matchmaking skills to work on her new friend Dimple. Ania's childhood friend, Dev, encourages her to find something more worthwhile to do than to arrange the love lives of others.
•
Does this synopsis ring a bell? Polite Society is described as a modern reimaging of Jane Austen's Emma. Notice the key word, reimaging. This is not a retelling of Emma, character for character or chapter by chapter. The author cleverly took Emma and gave it a Bollywood spin and sprinkled it with a dash of Crazy Rich Asians. I find Austen's works translate well into South Asian culture where class status and arranged marriages are part of the fabric of society. The author navigates the reader through Delhi's elite social circles with insight and a colorful cast of characters. As I read this, I could definitely follow threads of Emma, and yet, the author put his own creative spin on the plot and characters, delivering elements of surprise. I really enjoyed that Ania has aspirations to be an author and shares her love of reading with Dev. Austen lovers might expect this to be a comical, light hearted read, and while there is humor, at times the plot felt dark and tragic to me. Although, the story of Emma has timeless appeal, its clear that a modern day Emma, might find the field of matchmaking littered with land mines in a world where people can easily hide who they really are. Just like Emma, the plot leads Ania to self discovery, especially in matters of her own heart.

Bombastic Friday Florals because it was the last chance for a colour explosion!.....
-
Foam free, it only took me an hour to arrange and photograph. Rain was lashing at the window and then, quite magically the sun came out so I was able to take pictures quickly...yay 😃
-
I’ve been wanting to use that urn for ages, I purchased it from my friend Rebecca @vintage_and_colour last year, or maybe the year before and walk past it daily 🤦🏻‍♀️, so pleased I did...
-
I’ve also walked past Panicum ‘Frosted Explosion’ every day and not used it at all this year. It sows itself here and I just move a few plants together, about 10 or 12 in case I need it, perfect here I think....
-
Berries are so abundant this year and my Cornus kousa ‘Norman Hadden’ is groaning under the weight...see on swipe...
-
Normally the Blackbirds devour them...they are edible and certainly look appetising but have you ever tasted one? 🤢....I see a lot of kousa  seedlings springing up next year, I’ve only just cleared the last lot but potted a few babies....
-
Hope you all enjoy a wonderful weekend, whatever you’re up to, I’m hoping to go on some lovely autumn walks with Freddie....and possibly Bibba cat!...

QOTD: Have you ever read a book that felt different but at the same time good to you?
•
•
I have The Curious Incident of the Dog at the night Time’ for my coursework. I began reading it yesterday and now I am done with 100 pages. When I first updated my current read, many DMs told me about how good that book is. It definitely raised my expectations and now I think the book exceeds expectations (perhaps exceeds Hermione) because the narration and the character building is so different and feels so good. More updates coming soon♥️

QOTD: Who are the characters you know now that you would have wanted to read and hear growing up? 📚

______

#FantasyonFriday wants Favorite Quotes and I LOVE this quote from @roshanichokshi's ARU SHAH AND THE SONG OF DEATH: "All I'm saying is no one can take your place if you make room for them." Aru's mom is a smart lady, and frankly, I think this is something that everyone these days could do well to remember. But gosh, as hard as it hit my heart now, these are the words I needed when I was Aru's age. 💔

Aru is so much of what I was at her age: active and sarcastic and brash and her very existence is LOUD. But that doesn't come without insecurity. That doesn't come without the feeling that someone "cooler" or "easier to handle" won't come in and take your place amongst your friends. I love Aru for a lot of reasons, and several because she's the awkward and larger than life character I needed in puberty. 💖 .

A stack of my favorite blue books for this week’s #10photochallenge —————————————
📘As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust by Alan Bradley: The 7th book of the Flavia de Luce series. If I chose my favorite series based on the number of rereads, this series would be my favorite.
📘The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey by Trenton Lee Stewart: The 2nd book of The Mysterious Benedict Society. I haven’t read it in a long time, but I remember it being very good. I’m looking forward to rereading it again when I find time. 📘The Hollow by Agatha Christie: This was the first Agatha Christie mystery I read, and the interesting psychology of the characters’ thoughts and actions made this book very interesting.
📘Little Women by Louisa May Alcott: This is one of my favorite books. I loved following the journey of the March sisters.

A couple of weeks ago I got to read ‘the secrets we kept’. A book written about a book. So ofcourse I now got the urge to read ‘doctor Zhivago’ myself! A book I have had on my shelves for ages, but never picked up! #book #books #bookstagram #bookworm #booknerd #bookaddict #bookaholic #booklove #booklover #lovetoread #ifreads #instabook #bibliophile #thesecretswekept #watwenietvertelden #laraprescott #doctorzhivago #borispasternak #booksandflowers #flowersandbooks #thehouseofbooks #vintagepublishing #russianliterature #russianclassics #penguinclassics

Is it still dark?.........
.
.
.
.
......was the slightly ridiculous question that came from the bed this morning as the tea arrived (very luckily we have a tea fairy).
.
.
And that’s the thing about this time of year. Everything is the other way round. There’s no point being outside early as you are in the summer as frankly I’m not that good at #cuttingflowers in the pitch black. .
.
I have however become quite nifty at spotting a slug at 50 paces in the near gloom of the evening while the owls hoot away.
.
.
And what has this got to do with #buttonholes I hear you cry? Well I’ve decided that we all need to wear them more often. Just because they are beautiful and look splendid. My grandfather always did. So here’s to the newly invented buttonhole day. Will you be wearing one today?

I will fight for those who cannot fight for themselves ~ Diana ⚔

Which are your favourite superheros? Mine are Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Arrow 🏹 
Wer sind eure Lieblingshelden? Bei mir sind es Wonder Woman, Aquaman und Arrow🏹

She will become one of the world's greatest heroes: WONDER WOMAN. But first she is Diana, Princess of the Amazons. And her fight is just beginning. . . . 
Diana longs to prove herself to her legendary warrior sisters. But when the opportunity finally comes, she throws away her chance at glory and breaks Amazon law—risking exile—to save a mere mortal. Even worse, Alia Keralis is no ordinary girl and with this single brave act, Diana may have doomed the world.(Klappentext)

Wonder Woman – als Heldin geboren, zur Legende geworden
Eigentlich will Diana, Tochter der Amazonenkönigin, nur eines: das Rennen gewinnen, in dem sie gegen die schnellsten Läuferinnen der Insel antreten muss. Doch dann erblickt sie am Horizont ein untergehendes Schiff und bewahrt Alia, ein gleichaltriges Mädchen, vor dem Tod. Doch wie Diana vom Orakel erfährt, ist es Alias Bestimmung, die Welt ins Unglück zu stürzen und Krieg über die Menschheit zu bringen. Um dies zu verhindern, reist Diana mit Alia ins ferne New York – und wird unversehens mit einer Welt und Gefahren konfrontiert, die sie bislang nicht kannte ...(Klappentext,Unbezahlte Werbung)

#freebook Thank you @williammorrowbooks @sarahmmccoy and @tlcbooktours for this copy to review!
•
At almost the very end of Anne of Green Gables, Marilla comments on how Gilbert Blythe reminds her of his father, John Blythe. She tells Anne people used to call John her beau, but  they'd quarreled and she wished she'd forgiven him when she had the chance. "So you've had a bit of romance in your life, too," said Anne softly. Marilla responds "Yes, I suppose you might call it that. ...Everybody has forgot about me and John. I'd forgotten myself. But it all came back to me when I saw Gilbert last Sunday."
•
Marilla of Green Gables is Marilla's coming of age story from the age of 13 to age 36. We get insight into her family life and how a tragedy left her bearing the responsibilities of housekeeping, while caring for her father Hugh and her brother Matthew. Her mother's independent, unmarried sister casts a big influence on Marilla, motivating her to reach out beyond the safety and comfort of home in Avonlea. With her friend Rachel, she gets involved in the Ladies' Aid Society doing charitable work for orphans, some of which are children of runaway slaves from America. Moved by their plight, she is determined to make a difference. There is also the friendship and love of John Blythe, who sees a future with Marilla.
•
Its been ages since I started reading the Anne series ( I confess I still need to finish it), but this novel really captured the essence of LMM's work to me. The lush descriptions transport you to Avonlea and Green Gables, making this a great comfort read. I thought the author did a fantastic job with Marilla's story, by showing how events, politics, and family shaped her into the nurturing yet independent woman who raises Anne Shirley. Her story is bittersweet and a bit heartbreaking, but I absolutely loved this book and would count it as one of my favorites this year.
•
I've included a link to the publisher in bio if you'd like more information. Now available in paperback.

A few more from last weekend’s  dried flower wreath workshop. Just also wanted to introduce attendee @emmasmithsf , pictured here with her talented daughter, local San Francisco author of children’s books! She tells the most riveting stories of Journey the first wolf to travel to California in a long time, To Live on an Island, a day in a life of a young boy on San Juan Island, and chapter adventure books for kids to include escaping fire and weathering a blizzard, and coming soon a story of a dog who saved the family goats in the Sonoma fire, and the back story of the alligator in the San Francisco Academy of Sciences. I love her writing and the illustrations that accompany her books, and I love that the stories are local stories of animals that we have heard of in the news!! She draws the young readers in with interactions with children in her stories. As an adult I enjoy her books just as much as my children and even more as I know what a great writer she is! Her website is up on my link! Her books are available on Amazon! I think part of the idea of having a workshop dinner was to get to know one another and we certainly did that! #driedflowers #driedflowerwreaths #localwriter #sfauthor #childrensauthor #flowerdinner #intimatedinnerworkshops #flowerworkshop #bayareaflorist #dinneronthelawn #morganhill #gilroy #morganhillflorist #morganhilllife #morganhillmoms #flowersandbooks
