    1. First off, I have to say I thouroughly enjoyed this. This book did it's job, it kept me entertained. Was it mindblowing? No Was it Fun? Yes Do I think you should read it? Yes (if you like Young Adult books)Imagine you can hear voices, voices of Plants. Daisies, Lilies, Trees, Grass, Potato Plants sounds good right??? But, you can also hear the voices of poisonous plants, Snakeweed, Moonseed, Larkspur.They all call out to you, they all have motives To save, to heal, to poison, to kill. The only p [...]


    2. The Poison Diaries was different enough to hold my attention, but I not sure that it would be everyone's cuppa.Jessimine is a young woman living a pretty isolated life with her botanist/apothecary father in (from what I could gather) the late 1700's. Her father is obsessed with finding cures made from plants that were lost generations ago. The cures were lost.t the plants. Yep, pretty strong Creepy Mad Scientist vibe rolling off of this guy.For the most part Jessimine is a dutiful daughter who t [...]


    3. Sixteen-year-old Jessamine lives with her father, an apothecary, in an abandoned church she calls "the cottage". Her father's obsession is a forbidden garden where he keeps deadly and poisonous plants from around the world. Jessamine lives a boring life- taking care of her father and the plants, writing in her journal, doing household chores. Until a stranger shows up at her home with a present for her father. The present is Weed, a strange and introverted boy, whom with Jessamine builds a frien [...]


    4. Three stars: I recommend this book with some reservations.The Poison Diaries is a book of dark suspense, filled with the innocence of first love and a treacherous betrayal. It is hard for me to review this book. I find myself conflicted on my final rating. While there are aspects of the story I enjoyed, the majority of the book is ominous and it leaves you with an unsettled feeling. This book is about Jessamine, a young innocent, sheltered, flower bud; who for the most part has lived in isolatio [...]


    5. Wow. This book wasfascinating. And filled with an awful lot of cruelty. Well-written and engaging, I read this book in a couple of hours this morning while I was supposed to be waterblasting the front veranda -- I just could not put it down.I actually guessed fairly early who the villain was, and that they were poisoning someone in order to squeeze information from Weed, but it was still a punch in the stomach to have it confirmed. How dare they? How could they? Poison someone just for the sake [...]


    6. I thought this book would be so much betterLet me start off with Jessamine. Pros? Eharently she's pretty. Cons? Don't get me started. She is one of the silliest, weak-willed female protagonists I've read in awhile. Naive to an obvious fault, she is willing to tell her entire life story (and her fathers, including the bit about where he keeps all his deadly poisons) to the first stranger that comes along. Naturally, this person is Weed. And, obviously, she falls in love with him if for no other r [...]


    7. I read this pre-release ebook on HarperTeen. I must admit that I'm not generally a fan of reading ebooks on the computer - I like to be able to travel while reading: the bed, the couch, the floor, at the table while I eat, etc. So I don't read a lot of books at the computer, but a lot depends on if the book is worth it. If it engages me and keeps me interested, then I don't notice that I'm tethered as much. This one definitely kept me interested, and engaged. I really enjoyed it, and in fact up [...]


    8. This was kind of a disappointment. I was interested in the concept, the idea of a character who can communicate with plants. And it started out fine. I liked the idea that Weed, the one who can hear plants, would be happy to eat meat but not plants, because carrots communicate him while bacon does not. That was an interesting take. But eventually, I got bored with the characters. I got bored with a story that went nowhere for far too long. And when one character went from being kind of a jerk to [...]


    9. BLURB -Jessamine Luxson lives with her father, Thomas, an apothecary, in an isolated cottage near Alnwick Castle. Thomas’s pride and obsession is his locked garden full of dangerous plants, which Jessamine is forbidden to enter.When a traveler brings an orphan to their cottage, he claims the boy has special gifts that Thomas might value. Jessamine is drawn to the strange but intriguing boy, called Weed. Soon their friendship deepens into love. Finally, Weed shares his secret: He can communicat [...]


    10. 3.5One line review: What a strange little mindfuck of a bookNot-one-line-review:**This review is going to be somewhat informed by the fact that I read the first two books in the series before writing either review, so I know what happens next and how it all fits together.  Because of that, there will be times that I will reference book 2, which I wouldn't generally do, and I am sorry for that, but I promise to try to avoid spoilers.I have to start by saying that I found The Poison Diaries to be [...]


    11. I bought this book at Alnwick Castle, where the gated Poison Garden really strikes you as powerful - even more so once you have read this book. Visiting the Poison Garden at Alnwick Gardens can only increase your enjoyment and understanding of this young adult historical tale. This is a fantastic quick read which will leave you impatient for the next instalment.I liked Jessamine's spunk and nature, Weed's weirdness, and her father's evil plots. The characters are passionate to a flaw: Jessamine [...]


    12. I have been looking forward to reading this book. The plot sounded so intriguing. How could I resist a historical fiction centered on a poison garden ( I <3 gardens,) based on a real garden. Really, it’s my cup of tea.However, much to my chagrin I really did not like it. Jessamine is a sixteen-year-old girl who lives in a cottage with her apothecary gardener father Thomas, near Alnwick Castle. They live an isolated life, only called on when there is a need for a cure for the sick. When not [...]


    13. Just when you think it’s all been done before, here comes Maryrose Wood to blow everything out of the water. THE POISON DIARIES is the start of an ambitious series that combines history, magic, romance, and evil into a fast yet resonant readE POISON DIARIES unfortunately starts out rather slow and off-putting. The writing feels a bit stilted, the setup hard to believe. Jessamine was unappealingly weak, and her father difficult to define in his hardness and obsessiveness. I honestly did put the [...]


    14. Rating 3.5/4 StarsI enjoyed this book. It is not a long book and I read through it rather quickly. I loved the author's style of writing and the concept of the book intrigued me from the beginning. What pushed this book up a notch from just alright to a really enjoyable read was the love story between Jessamine and Weed. It is simply one of the sweetest love stories I've read. There was just something about the way Maryrose Wood portrays their relationship from the beginning right through where [...]


    15. For the longest time, it’s just been Jessamine Luxton and her father, a skilled apothecary. Her mother died long ago, and when her father is away to heal people, she is alone except for the plants in the gardens. She wishes more than anything to have a companion, but when Weed arrives, little does she know what kind of companion he’ll turn out to be. Weed is a shy and mysterious boy who knows little more about himself than others do. He has a strange knowledge of plants that fascinates both [...]


    16. A mediocre book with a ridiculous ending that made me want to knock off any remaining stars it had left.It started off as a three-star book, readable but unimpressive. I got to the last 100 pages and decided it was a 2-star book. I skimmed most of the way to the ridiculous end, and had it been a paper copy would have thrown it across the room. It was that bad. The premise is interesting. A boy that can talk to plants—but this reveal isn't made until halfway through the book. We don't actually [...]


    17. In the beginning it was slow. At first I almost gave up in the book, then I hit chapter four, thats when things really started to get interesting. It certainly did pick up when Weed, started to do strange things. I was very intrigued from the start.Now, this book was written well, and the plot, drama was great. In the end, it had some very unexpected surprises and I really need to know what happens next.ke NOW!The Poison Diaries is what it is, poison. It seeps into you forcing you to finish the [...]


    18. The idea behind The Poison Diaries is interesting: magical talking plants. But Ms. Wood could not decide if she was writing Bronte or Morgenstern. At times the characters display irrational passion: but then a plot machination or big inconsequence happens along and you go, "Pwah! This is stupid!" Although the technical quality is reasonable, the beginning is slow, the antagonistic plants have no strong motive, the plot falls falt in the middle, and the characters do character 180s without having [...]


    19. Thank you Tara for suggesting this for me, I loved every minute of reading it!!! I honestly can say that I have never read any book like this. The written was old style and so different to books these days which is why it took some time to get in the feel of it. The whole plot too was great,epic and different! It was so sweet and romantic in it's own twisted way. Unfortunatly The ending was not the best and could've been a bit better. But overall it is diffently a unique book that is deffinetly [...]


    20. This one wasodd. The first 2/3 is fairly unexceptionable and a bit slow, and then things go completely weird in the final third. Not to give too much away, but wicked plants are involved. The plant lore doesn't have any gaping inaccuracies, and the tone is sparsely but spookily Gothic. If the main characters had been at all likable and their relationships nuanced, much else could have been excused.I'm not sure what I was expecting. I've been to Alnwick Castle (but sadly left England just before [...]


    21. What a convoluted story this book turned out to be!By poison diaries i was expecting the characters (human ones) to be giving us some kind of information about the plants properties. And they do. of the times. What i was not expecting was to find (view spoiler)[plants who will have a voice in the narrative, and that one of them "Oleander", "Prince of Poisons" would be "villainized"(does this word even exists?) trying to separate our two lovebirds (hide spoiler)].Okay, i guess those who love that [...]


    22. I did not finish this book. The reason I did not finish it is because I am sensitive to animals being hurt and they were just being hurt all over the place - a dead cat from drinking in water where the main character dumped some poison, a horse that had been ridden too hard, throwing a rock at a raven (who was eyeing a baby sheep for dinner) then came the part where the other main character was forced to watch a raven kill a lamb that was just being born, and to not do anything about it, and I d [...]


    23. A very good read. I liked the format, characters, plot and more traditional language style. Though I worried that it was getting a little too simple/immature towards the end of the book, it pulled itself back up and impressed me. I enjoyed the way the book was written and the descriptions really helped to create a somewhat mystical atmosphere. The dreams and change of speaking character helped add to the tension and I found it very effective. The book couldve been even further developed and I'd [...]


    24. This was really good. The writing was beautiful, and it was so easy to read because it just flow perfectly. I really liked Jessamine- she was interesting and good at telling her story. I'm not really a fan of Weed. I think it was intended for the reader to feel sympathetic towards him, but I just couldn't. He was annoying and I found it impossible to connect to him, even when he narrated the story. It did start to ramble a bit at the end, but the twist definitely saved it. It was a fun and inter [...]


    25. Didn't think much of it to be quite honest. It was short and boring to be blunt. It dragged on and on about pointless things with half the book seeming off-story. It was nothing special and not the type of book that'll stick in mind once read. I'll probably forget about it tomorrow if it wasn't on GR. Probably won't even bother with the rest of the series to be truthful.


    26. What a weird little book of weirdness. It's a bit dark and a bit gothic and was just hitting the right note for a book to read at the change of the seasons.It starts out ok, a story set sometime in the 1700's about Jessamine, a teenage girl living in a disused chapel with her botanist healer father. Jessamine's father has a poison garden that she is not allowed into. Of course, that's the only thing she really wants out of life, to get in this garden and be allowed to take care of the plants. Th [...]


    27. Das Buch hat mich total enttäuscht. Ich kann gar nicht richtig benennen, was mich so gestört hat. Deshalb habe ich auch den halben Tag mit der Bewertung gerungen, aber schlussendlich muss ich feststellen, dass es mir einfach nicht gefallen hat. Die Protagonistin ist ein derart langweiliger Charakter, über den man kaum was erfährt. Dazu ein junger Mann, der ein Geheimnis hat, welches an sich spannend ist, mir dann zum Ende hin aber etwas zu sehr ausartete. Das Ende war für mich in seiner Lö [...]


    28. Няма да лъжа, корицата ме въвлече във всичко това.Никак не останах разочарована, особено от стила на Мерироуз Ууд, както и от малко по-различен свят. Книгата свърши и добра работа в това да изобрази човешката алчност и как любовта наистина може да бъде отрова. Но същевременн [...]


    29. Official Rating: 1.5Thoughts:Okay. Wow. I didn't expect to be finished with that so quickly.To start off with, I'd just like to say that any book that has (view spoiler)[manipulative, talking plants (hide spoiler)] as the big-bad antagonist is going to leave a bad taste in my mouth.As unfortunate as it is to kick off reviewing books on with a negative opinion, The Poison Diaries just didn't do it for me. At all. At first, it had promise. I wasn't exactly sucked into the novel for the plot, thou [...]


    30. When I bought The Poison Diaries, I really didn’t know all that much about it. I knew that it’s based on a concept by The Duchess Of Northumberland, and her famous Poison Gardens at Alnwick Castle. Being not at all far away from where I live, and a place I’ve been meaning to visit for ages but have never got round to going, this intrigued me along with the amazing synopsis but other than that I didn’t really know quite what to expect of this novel. I’d suggest this is really the best w [...]
