  2. I really enjoyed a Deadly Education. Those flowers are gorgeous. Happy reading and stay well.

    Anne - Books of My Heart This is my Sunday Post

  3. I'm curious about the hardcover book journals. Gorgeous flowers. :)

    Have a good week!

  4. The flowers are such a welcome splash of colour:)). And I absolutely loved A Deadly Education and looking forward to the next one. And thank you for sharing the fact that there's a remake of Rebecca - I loved the classic and the book, so it would be fun to catch up with this version. Have a great week, vvb.

  5. I might give the updated Rebecca a try. Have a good week!

  6. I need to finally read Rebecca so that I can watch the new adaptation. Have a great week!

  7. I love getting flowers at the Farmers Market! The Autumn bouquets you have pictured are so beautiful. Enjoy!

    I was just looking into the refreshed re-make of Rebecca for possible viewing this last weekend. Went with some other horror flicks instead, but I'd like to watch this version of Rebecca. I love the Alfred Hitchcock classic version, too.

  8. So many good horror/thriller books this week - perfect for October reading for me.
    I love those bright autumn flowers! The book journal sounds interesting.
    I'm glad you liked the re-make of Rebecca.
    Have a good week and happy reading!

  9. Pretty flowers.

    I'll be curious what you think of THE SEA OF LOST GIRLS.

    Hope you had a good week.

  10. Making journals from books sounds like a fun project!
