The days are getting noticeably shorter and I’m glad I got the chance to read Garden Spells while it was still summer, what with all the gardening and flowers and that cheeky apple tree. Thanks for reading Garden Spells with me. I thought it was a nicely written story if a little shallow on the subplots. It’s definitely piqued my interest in cooking with edible flowers though; I’ll have to try some of those recipes from the last post.
The nice folks at BelleBooks were kind enough to send a copy of Sarah Addison Allen’s In My Dreams, an audio collection of short stories that’s due out Nov. 1. Watch the blog for a review of the audiobook and a special giveaway to come!
