May Mini Challenge

Flowers are blooming / Spring is blooming

May is the time of year when we finally have lots of flowers out after the long winter. The mini challenge for May is very simple - just books that have flowers on the cover or in the titile of the book.

Edited so we can get more good books!! Let expand the theme a little - Spring blooming. Books with flowers, trees or plants on the cover which make you think of the new growth of Spring!

Depending on how much you read the challenge can be to find 1, 3 or 5 books with flowers. If you do more than one how about trying to find different flowers for each?

Anyone else? I'm having trouble finding books with flowers on the cover which are also at least loosly PNR/UF. Guess the genres don't lend themselves too well to it!

I love the Ghostwalkers series!! I just finished Murder Game and it was fantastic! The books just keep getting better as the series goes on!


message 25: by Kimberley (new)

Kimberley (Trillianne) | 373 comments Glad to hear it Valorie, wondering how it can get better. This one seriopusly clicked with me yesterday lunch time so ended up with a 2 hour lunch (oops), I just couldn't tear myself away and the same on the train home last night (I almost missed my stop).
I find the telepathic side totally fascinating and it adds a gripping facet to the story.
