With lush blooms in hand, discover how to build stunning arrangements. Accompanied by beautiful photographs of displays in Martha’s home, bursting with ideas, and covering every step from seed to vase, Martha’s Flowers is a must-have handbook for flower gardeners and enthusiasts of all skill levels.

2. Decluttering at the Speed of Life: Winning Your Never-Ending Battle with Stuff by Dana K. White

You don’t have to live overwhelmed by stuff—you can get rid of clutter for good!

While the world seems to be in love with the idea of tiny houses and minimalism, real women with real families who are constantly growing and changing simply can’t purge it all and start from nothing. Yet a home with too much stuff is a home that is difficult to maintain, so where do we begin? Add in paralyzing emotional attachments and constant life challenges, and it can feel almost impossible to make real decluttering progress.

In Decluttering at the Speed of Life, decluttering expert and author Dana White identifies the mind-sets and emotional challenges that make it difficult to declutter. Then, in her signature humorous approach, she provides workable solutions to break through these struggles and get clutter out—for good!

But more than simply offering strategies, Dana dives deep into how to implement them, no matter the reader’s clutter level or emotional resistance to decluttering. She helps identify procrasticlutter—the stuff that will get done eventually so it doesn’t seem urgent—as well as how to make progress when there’s no time to declutter.

4. How to Manage Your Home Without Losing Your Mind: Dealing with Your House’s Dirty Little Secrets by Dana K. White

Bring your home out of the mess it’s in and learn how to keep it under control.

“The dirty little secret about most organizing advice is that it’s written by organized people,” says blogger, speaker, and decluttering expert Dana K. White. “But that’s not how my brain works. I’m lost on page three.” Dana blogs at A Slob Comes Clean, chronicling her successes and failures with her self-described “deslobification process.” In the beginning she used the name “Nony” (short for aNONYmous), because she was sharing her deep, dark, slob secret. Now she has truly come clean—with not only her real name but the strategies she has developed, tested, and proved in her own home. She has learned what it takes to bring a home out of Disaster Status, which habits make the biggest and most lasting impact, and how to keep clutter under control.

In How to Manage Your Home Without Losing Your Mind, Dana explains that cleaning your house is not a onetime project but a series of ongoing premade decisions. Her reality-based cleaning and organizing techniques debunk the biggest housekeeping fantasies and help readers learn what really works.

1. Lovers and Newcomers by Rosie Thomas

By the bestselling author of The Kashmir Shawl, the mesmerizing novel of old friends reunited…and torn apart once again.

Rosie Thomas, beloved by readers for her brilliantly realized characters and twisting, page-turning plots, turns her “sharp nib” (Washington Post Book World) to a group of older friends in this evocative story of camaraderie and its challenges.

Miranda Meadowe decides a lonely widowhood in her crumbling country house is not for her. Reviving a university dream, she invites five of her oldest friends to come and join her to live, and to stave off the prospect of old age. All have their own reasons for accepting.

To begin with, the omens are good. They laugh, dance, drink and behave badly, as they cling to the heritage they thought was theirs for ever: power, health, stability. They are the baby boomers; the world is theirs to change.

But as old attractions resurface alongside new tensions, they discover that the clock can’t be put back. When building work reveals an Iron Age burial site of a tribal queen, the outside world descends on their idyllic retreat, and the isolation of the group is breached. The past is revealed – and the future that beckons is very different from the one they imagined.


2. The Big Chili by Julia Buckley

First in a delicious new mystery series filled with casseroles, confidences, and killers…

Lilah Drake’s Covered Dish business discreetly provides the residents of Pine Haven, Illinois, with delicious, fresh-cooked meals they can claim they cooked themselves. But when one of her clandestine concoctions is used to poison a local woman, Lilah finds herself in a pot-load of trouble…

After dreaming for years of owning her own catering company, Lilah has made a start into the food world through her Covered Dish business, covertly cooking for her neighbors who don’t have the time or skill to do so themselves, and allowing them to claim her culinary creations as their own. While her clientele is strong, their continued happiness depends on no one finding out who’s really behind the apron.

So when someone drops dead at a church Bingo night moments after eating chili that Lilah made for a client, the anonymous chef finds herself getting stirred into a cauldron of secrets, lies, and murder—and going toe to toe with a very determined and very attractive detective. To keep her clients coming back and her business under wraps, Lilah will have to chop down the list of suspects fast, because this spicy killer has acquired a taste for homicide…


3. Lover Awakened by J. R. Ward

#1 New York Times bestselling author J.R. Ward’s wildly erotic and ferociously inventive series continues as the most fearsome member of the Black Dagger Brotherhood discovers just how tempting the night can be…

A former blood slave, Zsadist still bears the scars from a past filled with suffering and humiliation. Renowned for his unquenchable fury and sinister deeds, he is a savage feared by humans and vampires alike. Anger is his only companion, and terror is his only passion—until he rescues a beautiful female from the evil Lessening Society.

Bella is instantly entranced by the Brother’s seething power. Except even as their desire for each other begins to overtake them, Zsadist’s thirst for vengeance against her abductor drives him to the brink of madness. Now Bella must help her lover not only overcome the wounds of his tortured past, but find a future with her…


4. Beautiful Bodies by Kimberly Rae Miller

From the bestselling and beloved author of Coming Clean, a brave and witty examination of how and why we try to control our bodies with food.

Like most people, Kimberly Rae Miller does not have the perfect body, but that hasn’t stopped her from trying. And trying. And trying some more. She’s been at it since she was four years old, when Sesame Street inspired her to go on her first diet. Postcollege, after a brief stint as a diet-pill model, she became a health-and-fitness writer and editor working on celebrities’ bestselling bios—sugarcoating the trials and tribulations celebs endure to stay thin. Needless to say, Kim has spent her life in pursuit of the ideal body.

But what is the ideal body? Knowing she’s far from alone in this struggle, Kim sets out to find the objective definition of this seemingly unattainable level of perfection. While on a fascinating and hilarious journey through time that takes her from obese Paleolithic cavewomen, to the bland menus that Drs. Graham and Kellogg prescribed to promote good morals in addition to good health, to the binge-drinking-prone regimen that caused William the Conqueror’s body to explode at his own funeral, Kim ends up discovering a lot about her relationship with her own body.

Warm, funny, and brutally honest, Beautiful Bodies is a blend of memoir and social history that will speak to anyone who’s ever been caught in a power struggle with his or her own body…in other words, just about everyone.


5. The Fortress by Danielle Trussoni

The critically acclaimed, bestselling author of Falling Through the Earth and Angelology returns with this much-anticipated memoir of love and transformation in France. The Fortress is Peter Mayle meets Eat, Pray, Love, a gorgeously written account of one woman’s journey to the other side of the romantic fairytale.

“If I had been another woman, I might have been skeptical. But I wasn’t another woman. I was a woman ready to be swept away. I was a woman ready for her story to begin. As a writer, story was all that mattered. Rising action, dramatic complication, heroes and villains and dark plots. I believed I was the author of my life, that I controlled the narration.”

From their first kiss, twenty-seven-year-old writer Danielle Trussoni is spellbound by a novelist from Bulgaria. The two share a love of jazz and books and travel, passions that intensify their whirlwind romance.

Eight years later, hopeful to renew their marriage, Danielle and her husband move to the south of France, to a picturesque medieval village in the Languedoc. It is here, in a haunted stone fortress built by the Knights Templar, that she comes to understand the dark, subterranean forces that have been following her all along.

While Danielle and her husband eventually part, Danielle’s time in the fortress brings precious wisdom about life and love that she could not have learned otherwise. Ultimately, she finds the strength to overcome her illusions, and start again.

An incisive look at romantic love, The Fortress is one woman’s fight to understand the complexities of her own heart, told by one of the best writers of her generation.


6. I’ll Be Damned by Eric Braeden

In this startling candid and poignant memoir, the legendary Emmy Award-winning star of The Young and The Restless, America’s #1 soap opera, chronicles his amazing life, from his birth in World War II Germany to his arrival in America to his rise to humanitarian and daytime superstar for the past thirty-five years.

For nearly four decades, fans have welcomed the star of television’s number-one daytime show, The Young and the Restless, into their living rooms. While they’ve come to know and love the suave Victor Newman, few truly know the man behind the character, the supremely talented Eric Braeden. I’ll Be Damned is his story—a startling and uplifting true tale of war, deprivation, determination, fame, and social commitment that spans from Nazi Germany to modern Hollywood.

Braeden’s journey from a hospital basement in Kiel to the soundstages of Los Angeles has taught him more about joy, heartbreak, fear, dignity, loss, love, loneliness, exhilaration, courage, persecution, and profound responsibility to the global community than he could have hoped to learn in several lifetimes. Growing up in the years after Germany’s defeat, Braeden knew very little about the atrocities of his parents’ generation, until he arrived in America as a teenager—a discovery that horrified and transformed him. Trying to redress the wrongs of his homeland, he has dedicated his life to humanitarian work—even forming the German American Culture Society—working for decades to show the world that what we share as humans is far more important than what separates us from one another.

Told with openness, candor, humor, heart, and occasional raw vulnerability, I’ll Be Damned reveals a man committed to making the world a better, more loving place. Filled with sixteen pages of photos from his decorated life and career, I’ll Be Damned will be a treasured keepsake for Y&R fans, and is an inspiring testament to the goodness within us all.


7. Jane Austen at Home by Lucy Worsley

Take a trip back to Jane Austen’s world and the many places she lived as historian Lucy Worsley visits Austen’s childhood home, her schools, her holiday accommodations, the houses–both grand and small–of the relations upon whom she was dependent, and the home she shared with her mother and sister towards the end of her life. In places like Steventon Parsonage, Godmersham Park, Chawton House and a small rented house in Winchester, Worsley discovers a Jane Austen very different from the one who famously lived a ‘life without incident’.

Worsley examines the rooms, spaces and possessions which mattered to her, and the varying ways in which homes are used in her novels as both places of pleasure and as prisons. She shows readers a passionate Jane Austen who fought for her freedom, a woman who had at least five marriage prospects, but–in the end–a woman who refused to settle for anything less than Mr. Darcy.

Illustrated with two sections of color plates, Lucy Worsley’s Jane Austen at Home is a richly entertaining and illuminating new book about one of the world’s favorite novelists and one of the subjects she returned to over and over in her unforgettable novels: home.

Saturday Seven: Gardening

To all the folks joining us for Saturday Seven, please don’t forget to leave your link in the linky list at the end of this post.

For the Judy half of us, spring has definitely sprung. I’ve been working in the yard, trying to fix all the winter issues, and embarking on a new project – building a butterfly/hummingbird/bee garden. I’m so excited.

I’m not one to sit down and read a non-fiction book for the fun of it. However, I have several books that I like to dip into and consult from time to time– especially this time of year. In no particular order, here are some of the gardening books on my bookshelf:

This is a Reader’s Digest book and has some wonderful pictures. My husband and I love a lot of color around our house, and this book has given us some great ideas. The sections are divided into color zones, which I really appreciate…especially when I’m looking for a certain color to add more curb appeal to our front yard.


Some wonderful themes for gardens, if you are looking for ideas. I enjoy just thumbing through this book to get ideas, even if some of them are a little more ambitious that we want to bite off.


This book has been an invaluable help. My husband named our house “Rose Cottage” and, at last count, we have 30+ rose plants. Pruning is always nerve-racking for me…some roses grow on new growth and some on old growth…what to do, what to do? This book tells you!


This book isn’t exactly about gardening, but we love birds and this book has some really neat things you can put in your yard and garden to help encourage birds to hang out with you.


My mama gave this book to me one year for Christmas. Some of the ideas are pretty ingenious, others… I’m not so sure about. But, I’m all for going all natural in my yard (you know, because of birds, bees, butterflies, hummingbirds–not to mention I have a cat who likes to go out).


Not only do I like doing all natural outside, I think we can use a lot of nature’s remedies as well for us instead of picking up a pill bottle. And I love container gardening, so this is a book I use a lot.


I like this one especially because it talks directly to my area. We have a water garden and I’ve gotten a lot of ideas from this book on how to make it prettier.

Saturday Seven: Books Based Around King Arthur

To all the folks joining us for Saturday Seven, please don’t forget to leave your link in the linky list at the end of this post.

I was going to do fantasy books I loved in keeping with last week’s theme of mystery books, but while I was looking around at all the fantasies there were, several books/series that I have enjoyed in the past and had forgotten about came up in the search. So, today, here are seven books or series based on the Arthurian legend.

1. The Once and Future King by T.H. White – a classic and considered one of the best reimagining of the Arthurian legend. Five books that anybody interested in King Arthur should take a look at.

2. Mary Stewart’s Merlin Quartet follows the adventures of a Welsh boy named Myrddin Emrys, who grows up to be Merlin.

3. The Avalon Series by Marion Zimmer Bradley tells the Arthurian tale, but instead of focusing on Arthur and the knights, the books follow the women involved in the events.

So many books, so little time. This week, I asked our reviewers to share some books that they’re really excited will be coming out this year. Here’s a list of seven reviewers’ choices (slightly more than seven actual books):

From Mistflower:

I’m hooked on the Oak Grove series by Lauri Robinson and Kathryn Albright. I can’t wait for Kathryn Albright’s new one in the Oak Grove series, “Wedding at the Rocking S Ranch” by Kathryn Albright (Release date 2018).

From Cholla:

James Patterson has books in two of my favorite series coming out this year. One is “The 17th Suspect” in his Women’s Murder Club series (with Maxine Paetro), the other is “Red Alert” (with Marshall Karp) in his NYPD Red series. I’m kind of a sucker for his books…

From Astilbe:

I’m looking forward to reading “Finding Felicity” by Stacey Kade. It’s about a lonely teenage girl who uses characters from the TV show Felicity to invent an entire life for herself online. I’ve never had the urge to make up a fake life for myself online, so I’m fascinated by people who feel that desire and act on it. This is going to be a very good book, I think.

From Snowdrop:

I can’t wait for C.J. Box to put out “The Disappeared” or for “Antiques Wanted” by Barbara Allan. And Stuart Woods has 3 mysteries coming out this year…”Shoot First”, “Desperate Measures” and “Turbulence”.

From Rose:

Two of my favorite authors have books coming out this year. I can’t wait to read “The Outside” by Stephen King and “Leverage in Death” by JD Robb.

From Poppy:

I’m a big Nora Roberts fan and she has two books coming out this year that I’m looking forward to. “Of Blood and Bone” (Book #2 of The Chosen Ones series) — this series is so unlike anything she’s written in the past and I’m looking forward to seeing where she goes with it. And a single title romantic suspense, “Shelter in Place”.

From Lupine:

I’ve been a Mortal Instruments/Infernal Devices fan forever and now the new Dark Artifices series I’m going a little crazy waiting for “Queen of Air and Darkness” by Cassandra Clare. It can’t come soon enough. Another series I’m really enjoying is the series by Kerri Maniscalco that started with “Stalking Jack the Ripper”. The next book, “Escaping From Houdini” releases this year and I’m so excited!
