5 eBooks with a Flower on the Cover

“If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.”– Frances Hodgson Burnett

Hello, dearies!

Welcome to the blog once again. It’s been a while since I made a book list, so I went with a flower or flowers theme because I thought that May deserved it, to be honest, it is more a nature theme.

These books with a flower (nature) on the cover are either on my TBR or are new to me, and I thought you might like to check them out. They are also available in paperback if you’d like to get them.

Let’s get started.

Hello, dearies! 📖

Here we are once more, another book challenge and this time about the books that are most tempting on my shelf. It was not easy to choose.

5 Christmas-related Books for this December

What’s Christmas without a little light reading about Christmas? 🎁 🎄

Hello, dearies!

Is December going well? Every day seems to get colder over here, but we don’t have snow so it’s only that, cold, cold, cold. 🧣🥶

Today, I decided to bring a little Christmas back as I did in 2020, though I did this in 2018 as well, they were not all related to Christmas, you can still check those out and maybe find another good read that you haven’t seen before.

Okay, let’s start with this 2021 Christmas-related book recommendations. Oh, they are not from this year but I saw this time around and thought they looked interested enough.

Note: This post contains affiliate links, which means I get a tiny commission if you get one of the books, but the prices do not change for you. Thank you for understanding.

Deck the Hearts

By Rachelle Ayala

Opposites attract and sparks fly in the delightful small town of Christmas Creek.

Holly Jolly lives for Christmas. It’s the only time of the year, as far as she’s concerned.

Gordon Gills doesn’t need a reason to hate the holiday season. He doesn’t see the point.

Gordon returns to the mansion he inherited and finds Holly making a mess with her Christmas decorations. Unfortunately, his great-aunt’s will stipulates that he must make merry every Christmas if he wants to keep his inheritance.

Holly is determined to infect the grouchy Gordon with every dose of Christmas cheer she can muster and show him what Christmas is really about.

Fool Me Twice at Christmas (A Fake Engagement, Small Town, Holiday Romantic Comedy)

By Camilla Isley

There are two types of relationships: fake and real.

Chuck and Kate’s used to be real, oh-so-real. But after she broke his heart four months ago, leaving him, it became all just pretense for the sake of their entwined families.

With parents who are best friends and business partners, it’s not easy for Chuck and Kate to announce they’ve split up. But with the holidays looming over them, they can no longer keep pretending.

Chuck and Kate head home for Christmas, determined to tell the truth—and end up accidentally engaged instead. The more they try to pull apart, the more the Universe seems to push them back together, shortening the road to the altar. And when just-for-show kisses stir up forgotten feelings, things get even more complicated.

Now, with the midnight hour approaching, will Chuck and Kate’s relationship turn out to be fake or real?

On Christmas Avenue: A Christmas Romance From Hallmark Publishing

by Ginny Baird

Everybody loves a parade!
Well, everybody except Evan…

Evan, the county sheriff, knows that businesses are struggling in the small town of Clark Creek. But unlike the mayor—who happens to be his mother—he doesn’t think that hiring a “Christmas Consultant,” whatever that is, will help. Especially when this Christmas Consultant proposes a holiday parade that seems likely to overwhelm his staff and leave the town in even more debt.

What’s up, December?

Wow! First Day of the Last Month of this 2021.

Happy December, dearies! I trust this one started full of reading and happy thoughts for everyone.

Since it’s already here, then we might as well make the best of it, right? No point in crying over spill potion. As 2022 comes closer and closer, it has become increasingly and shockingly obvious that all the books I was supposed to read this time around did not happen. I had a few difficult months and still going through it all, but have decided to keep going. 💪

Life Events and 2 Reading Lists

Hi, dearies! 

I trust you’re all safe and well. 🍂 This one is a little off the track, but I wanted to mention I might not be as active this month; I have been dealing with some personal things with my family and will be focusing on them for September. 🍂 

My father needs heart ❤️ surgery, and we’re in the process of saving up and receiving any small contribution to help us achieve this goal, you can see the crowdfunding here, and if you can share, that is also a way of helping us. 

As I said, this is happening right now, so that’s why I’m kind of on a hiatus this month, not many posts on Instagram or here on the blog, but I’ll be back soon, hopefully. And thank you to all who have reached out or shared the news.

Fiction – Graphic novels & comics I didn’t know

I was taking a quick look on Smashwords today and saw this section on Graphic novels, though I think it should be more like Fiction with a touch of graphic? Well, at least the ones that I saw didn’t have much comic on them.

Hello, dearies! ✨

Happy 4th of July ✨ to those who celebrate it. I was taking a quick look on Smashwords today and saw this section on Graphic novels, though I think it should be more like Fiction with a touch of graphic? Well, at least the ones that I saw didn’t have much comic on them.

So, I saw these and thought you might like to check them out too, I haven’t read them or anything, I just read the titles and thought that they could be included in the TBR, so don’t take my word for it. 😂📚

Here we go.

If you read The Duke and I then you should read… 👀 📚

If you read the Duke and I then you should probably/would probably read these romance books.

Hello, dearies! 

I know, it has been some time since I published a new one, and this one not even a review? The horror! 

I have been working in my mundane job, and my reading has been the lowest in months. I am supposed to be reading The Brightest Night (which I have loved so far) but I stopped before half of it was over because I want a clearer mind to pay attention to it, so you might say that I am in a reading slump. Nothing to do with my last read, I love the Origin and Lux world.
