Books With Flower Names in the Title

Summer is the time of beautiful flowers–so what nicer way to think of flowers than in the title of books–right? LOL It’s just for fun, people! When I do these posts I try to use mostly books I’ve read or books on my own TBR.

My review from my old blog: I’ve finally done it! I made it thru a free kindle romance without laughing or gagging!! Ha!! This author, unlike many others of the genre, can really write! I was in the mood to just ESCAPE and this book provided me with a mini-vacation. I won’t pretend this is high-brow literature, but it was low-brow fun of the best sort. Bernard is every down-trodden woman’s dream. Good triumphs over Evil. What more needs to be said? This novella is a pleasant hour or so of escape! Lavender Vows by Colleen Gleason (Medieval Herb Garden Series)

Lilacs

The Lilac Bus by Maeve Binchy (read on a blogging hiatus so no review)

Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly (DNF)

  1. Loved the way you found those daisies! I thought you’d catch me out but I managed to find some books I’ve read that have flowery titles. Yeah. Two are by Welsh authors so I get double brownie points….
    The White Camelia by Julie Greenwood
    The Primrose Path by Rebecca Griffiths

    I’ve also read Wreath of Roses by Elizabeth Taylor

  2. I think I’ve already told you that the original title of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel was These Foolish Things. Some good ones here. Did you not read “The Rose Code” by Kate Quinn? If not, you should. I loved it!

  3. It was so much fun to read about all those books with a flower in the title. If I just had the time, I’d like to look through my book log and find the books I’ve read that has a flower in the title.
