Year in Review: Insect Pests

Either it is dry summers or wet winters, a mix of insect problems constantly hit us. These chewing insects devour many different species of plants and can be difficult to treat. Insects like grasshoppers especially love hostas, anemones, and members of the nightshade family. If you are in the need of such plants to grow in your yards, then visit Online Garden Center.

House of Fallen Trees by Gina Ranalli
House of Fallen Trees - Gina Ranalli

Well, I am sad to say that this book didn't work for me. I was very excited to start it and LOVED the gorgeous cover but I didn't enjoy this story. It was very dream-like and that's fine if I am invested in the main character but Karen didn't come alive for me. She was very bland and slightly annoying and though she tried to come across as a bad ass bitch she ran screaming to the menfolk whenever something scary occurred and that was annoying. Many people love and adore this story but I had some issues that I cannot ignore. Here are a few of them:

*An unclear timeline. Someone's lover dies (goes missing?) 6 months previous and this someone later says he's been trying to have sexy times with another guy for the past 6 months. WTF? That makes you a creepy jerk with no loyalty or feelings!

*Unrealistic and sometimes cringy dialogue. "Don't flatter yourself bi-boy" #NoJustNo

*Inconsistent characterization. One character is described as the quickest to laugh and 4 pages later he's a "gloomy Gus". Make Up Your Mind.

*It wasn't scary (to me).

*There was too much tedious telling and not enough showing.

*A lack of well done atmosphere. I should've felt a chill but I didn't.

*A character states animals do not have feelings. Screw you, Rory! Animals do too have feelings #SorryNotSorry

I'm giving it two stars because the dog Dusty lives. And you can yell at me for revealing that but if you are a dog person you NEED to know!

I wish I could write a positive review but I have to be honest.

The Perfect little Nightmare
Dead trees Give No Shelter - Wil Wheaton

This two hour audiobook was just perfectly nightmarish. It hit many of the holy shitake fears most of us have without being predictable. Read by the author, and well done.

Reading progress update: I've read 45%.
Dead trees Give No Shelter - Wil Wheaton

I found this short novella in my library's digital files- read by the writer, it's dark, dark dark, and creeping into the creepy wood. Excellent listening for my morning walk through the dark woods today. LOL
