Gardening Blooms | Wyatt’s World

In April, scores of readers will head to the local plant store. Get them into the library, too, with books about gardening, from lush dwellings worth dreaming over to utilitarian plans for building flourishing spaces of their own.

Editors’ Spring Picks: Titles That Have Gotten Us Talking

Here at LJ , we receive about a thousand galleys per week. You might imagine that with that volume, it’s all a blur, and sometimes it feels that way. Still there are books that stand out, whether they’re from a beloved author, they’ve had a lot of buzz, they’re in a genre we’re newly addicted to, or—yes, it happens—the cover reeled us in. Here, then, are some of the titles that have gotten us talking lately, with thoughts from us and comments from their authors. A fun part of this for us is exploring materials in an area that’s not “ours”—in my case, that means stepping outside of reference to reveal my devotion to mystery novels. Perhaps it’s time to try some genre-jumping of your own.
