There is a saying that April showers bring May flowers. It definitely is the case for C&B. For the month of May, read your flower! Pick a flower/plant and either the title or authors last name can match with the specified letter. This is just like the A-Z Challenge.
For an example: You can choose Sunflower, and it could go like:
S- Sarah's Key
U- Unbroken
N- No Country for Old Men
etc.

Please add your flower/plant for this months challenge.

Reconstructing Amelia is pretty good! Took me a second to get into it but as soon as I was into it I went through it in a night

Joy | 110 comments This is a great idea for a challenge :) I'm reading "A Whiff of Scandal" by Carole Matthews which is about an aromatherapist who uses flower oils in her fragrances. Getting me in the summer mood :)

Karen GoatKeeper (goodreadscomkaren_goatkeeper) | 100 comments I think I will go with Hosta as I have found books for most of the letters.
H - Hatchet by Gary Paulsen - done
O - O, Pioneers by Willa Cather - half done but enjoying it
S - Strawberry Girl by Lois Lenski
T - Tales from Missouri and the Heartland by Ross Malone
A - Age of Reason by Thomas Paine - done
S - Song of the Giraffe by Shannon K. Jacobs - done

I guess I will have to read the others later squashed in between summer events.
