Wake Up and Smell the Books: Ten Floral Covers

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is all about nature, which is something I haven’t experienced a ton of lately—thank you so much rain, wind, and generally dreary weather! Things are getting so bad I’ve resorted to making flowers with cross stitch. Yeah. It’s been a long year. Anyway, in honor of my new hobby, here are ten books that feature flowery covers.

    Ahh, I need to get back into cross-stitching! My grandmother taught me as a kid, but I haven’t worked on anything for about three years now. I hope you’re enjoying it! Such pretty covers here. The one for Wicked Like a Wildfire is so pretty, and the book itself sounds so good, so I definitely need to check it out. Bloom and Doom sounds interesting as well.

    What lovely, investive titles! Roots of Murder, Bloom and Doom, and Potted Gardener. Really, those cozy mysteries have it best! Do you read a lot of those? I have seen you suggest such awesome book titles throughout TTT.

    I love that you brought in the old school Petals on the Wind! The Belles is probably my favorite from these.

    1. Yes! After picking the theme, I knew Petals on the Wind had to be in here. I read it for the first time a few weeks ago and … well, what a wild ride.

    1. That series has had such great covers—both from its UK and US publishers. I think the art was probably what made me pick up the series in the first place.
