This book was slightly nerve wracking to read. Right after the death of my grandfather, this book didn't seem like the best decision but there was something irresistible about the book.

I received a copy of this from the author, Danielle Koste. My thanks to the Danielle for this opportunity. These are my honest thoughts of the book.
This is a wonderful story that explores themes of love, loss, and forgiveness. It has an excellent mental health rep focussed on depression, anxiety and suicide. The main characters are very real and relatable. I fell in love with Jack, and I think most people will. The ...more
I first had the privilege of reading "What the Flower Says of Death" a few years ago via Wattpad. Since then, I've been eagerly awaiting the day that Miss Koste would release it into the publishing world.
Having the opportunity to read this book again after all this time was like revisiting old friends; that's how much of a mark Violet and Jack left on me. Though I didn't remember everything, I found a lot of things coming back to me as I read, and I had the joy of experiencing those re ...more

I went into What the Flower Says of Death totally blind to this author’s writing style. This can be a dangerous or wonderful thing. There’s always the risk of hating the story or how the author writes but thankfully, that was not the case here. I am in love with What the Flower Says of Death.
I read this book in one day and had tears dripping down my face for the majority of it; I mean that in the best possible w ...more
You'd think that suicide plot-lines are too cliché already, but this book gave it a very special twist. Although it is extremely predictable – and let me tell you that what I predicted was on-point – I still love the book.
Character wise, they all have a very distinct aspect to them that gave them so much life. Especially Violet ...more
It did feel a little predictable in some places, I figured the twist pretty early on. But the Author wasn’t trying to hide it, hints were left here and there. Neither of those things took away from the story though.

This review was originally posted on That Book Gal.
I had to really push to read this one at first. It opens right after Violet almost dies by suicide. Thus that drives the story, and she’s still grappling with the darkness and planning another attempt. It is very dark in the beginning.
However, while this book is very dark at times, it’s filled with so much light and hope. It’s honestly jaw droppingly stunning, in the way it’s written, the st ...more

Overall, What the Flower Says of Death by Danielle Koste is a beautiful, emotional, whirlwind story. While this book touches a very difficult topic, the writing and the story are truly exquisite. Even though this might not touch people in the same way, it can be related to everyone. The characters are engaging and are genuinely made for each other. I would like to ...more
