Floral Faves: Romance Covers Andrea Loves

[fa icon="calendar"] Jun 12, 2020 9:45:00 AM / by Andrea

Summer in South Africa is ending; pouring rain has started to creep between days with blue skies. Even when it's sunny outside, these days it always kinda feels like the skies are grey. And at least once a day, I remember that I was supposed to be in Seoul, Korea right now for cherry blossom season, and then my heart aches even more. So! I’ve compiled a list of books that bring the much-needed spring blooming feeling with their covers.

I hope you find something that gives you that clear sky, sunshine feeling.

natural-enemies

 

Natural Enemies, by Roan Parrish

“Such a little thing, a plant. But it’s like hope in a pot.” This book is spilling over with passion for plants. It’s also a really good book to read in moments like.. life right now, for sentiments like this: “The gift of nurturing something into being was one I deeply wanted to share with the kids I’d gathered. Because bringing something into being meant you could do the same to yourself, if you ever needed to.” 

Currently in Kindle Unlimited or for purchase at Amazon.

 

tell-me-how-you-really-feelTell Me How You Really Feel, by Aminah Mae Safi

You should read Margrethe’s review

In it, she shares what’s magic about the book, why she wishes it existed when she was a teenager, and tells us that it’s an homage to the Gilmore Girls Rory-Paris ship.

The Language of Cherries, by Jen Marie Hawkins

“When Evie is forced to move to Iceland for the summer, she takes her canvas and paintbrushes into the picturesque cherry orchard behind her guesthouse. She stains her lips with stolen cherries in the midnight sun and paints a boy she’s never met. Oskar is startled to discover Evie in his family’s orchard, and even more surprised to see himself on her canvas.”

100 Days of Sunlight, by Abbie Emmons

Tessa is home-schooled, writes poetry, and runs a blog. She temporarily loses her eyesight (for 100 days) after a car accident. One Goodreads reviews says “If you love contemporary YA, teen romance, deep storylines, witty characters, and WAFFLES, definitely check out 100 Days of Sunlight!” and I plan to do exactly that.

Wild Beauty, by Anna-Marie McLemore

The top Goodreads review says “This book should be covered in rose petals and leave a rose petal everywhere it’s been just so everyone knows it’s been there." So... yes!

work-for-it
Work for it, by Talia Hibbert

Griffin is the scowling giant who prefers plants to people. Keynes is sharp-tongued, sophisticated, beautiful. Free. “When the prettiest man I’ve ever hated shows up at my job the next day, I’m not sure if I want to strangle him or drag him into bed. Actually—I think I want both.” (Content Note: this book includes depression, anxiety, references to past sexual trauma and forced outing, references to a parent who died by suicide.)

pansies-2

Pansies, by Alexis Hall

By the Romance sorcery that is typical with Alexis Hall's writing, a childhood-bully Romance is turned into a story that made my heart feel like it had flowers blooming inside it. It’s also got one of my all-time favourite covers, which captures the feel of the story so well. It’s recently been released on audio, which is definitely my preferred method of reading these days.
