Humans of all cultures have ascribed so much meaning to flowers and plants that you can often miss so much in literature (and in general) without knowing what is going unsaid. If you love flowers, mythology, colorful illustrations, and a dash of history, this is a compendium for you.

I heard a song one day - the siren song of a beautiful book of Victorian style stickers. Alas, I don't write that much correspondence. Finally I realized the nearly limitless crafting potential of such a fun book. Stickers everywhere! Add some gloss, and you've got extra details on your project that totally pop. When you're done with the stickers you can use the beautiful pages for origami. Or you can turn the entire book into a keepsake box. Let your imagination go as wild as some of these stickers.

A stunning gothic fantasy written in V.E. Schwab's masterful, bittersweet and haunting voice. A story about a romance, without a romance (something I very much appreciate in a YA story). A dark tale of yearning and finding oneself in the ruins. CW: Mental illness, self harm

I'm a plant lover, grower, and gardener, but I have never really thought of myself as a garden writing reader. Then Robin and Dale introduced me to the Victorian writings of Celia Thaxter. I was immediately struck with the calming and eloquent writing. Despite the time she was writing, her writing is lyrical and not flowery or weedy. A huge garden on a quiet island off the coast of Maine: my new mental retreat when I need some internal calm.
