Cindy  | 384 comments Does it have to be a specific flower or can it have Flower in the title?

The word "flower" is fine, too. :)

Melissa Coyle | 1557 comments I have my book picked out, but will not get it read before the end of the month. I Thought of Daisy by Edmund Wilson is also found in the 1001 Books Before you Die list.

Great job, Cindy!

I've had mine picked out for awhile, Melissa, but haven't gotten to it yet either. I usually leave the monthly minis open for a couple extra weeks so people can finish up. Sometimes the best laid plan go awry. :D

Srividya Vijapure (theinkedmermaid) | 221 comments I just finished reading Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein for this challenge. I liked this one better than the first book, Code Name Verity, in this set of companion books/series.

megan | 914 comments Just finished Snow Flower and the Secret Fan. Absolutely blown away!! So glad I committed to this challenge. Snow Flower would have collected dust on my shelf for years had I not.

That's a lovely thing to hear, Megan. I'm always so pleased when one of the minis works out that way. :)

Congrats to you, too. Srividya!
