This single book challenge is only good for one month! From February 1 to February 28.

Mission: Find and read one book with a title that SOUNDS LIKE a Romance but is NOT a Romance. This could mean hearts, flowers, pink, love, letters, heartbreak. Have fun with it!

Some Non-Romance titles:
Flowers for Algernon
White Oleander
Red Dragon
The Pink Suit
Beloved
Sputnik Sweetheart
Heart of Darkness

P. S. I don't hate Valentine's Day. Who could hate a holiday devoted to chocolate?

Ohhh I like this... hmmm I'll have to see what I can dredge up! Perhaps The Fruit of The Tree by Edith Wharton?

I think Fated by Benedict Jacka might work for this.

I found a book called Rose in a Storm by Jon Katz. I found it on our library's site. It sounds like I should enjoy it.

I am going to read The Triumph of Night actually. It should fit I think.

Roses are Red by James Patterson should work well!

I have started a book about a dog called Rose, called Rose in a Storm. So far, so good.

I finished Rose in a Storm by Jon Katz. If you like animal stories, this is a good one-it takes place during a major blizzard in upstate New York.
