March 30, 2021

It’s finally Spring and I am back on the blog horse! Today we’ll have some fun matching books and flowers. How, you might ask? We will take a look at each flower’s characteristics and match it with a book. Simple right? The only problem is the massive amount of possibilities. If you don’t see your favorite flower and it makes you sad, let me know in a comment below and I’ll add it to the list asap. More rep is never a bad thing!

Now, should we start with the obvious one first?

The Rose

Characteristics: classic, full of thorns, symbol of passion and love
Native to: Asia and Europe

The Beautiful by RenΓ©e Ahdieh

This might be a bit on the nose but I’m going with it. Celine Rousseau flees from Paris to New Orleans to escape her sins and start a new life. The new city is thrilling and the acquaintance of the enigmatic SΓ©bastien Saint Germain leads Celine to an underground world where things lurk in the shadows. Without a doubt full of passion and obstacles.

The Lily

Characteristics: classic, long-lasting, symbol of purity
Native to: Northern Hemisphere

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

The white Lily is a big and elegant flower that reminds me of Evelyn Hugo and her demanding presence. This old-school starlet is both stubborn and brave but also fragile on the inside and her story is full of hurting. We get a perfect mix of sparkling diamonds, scandals and the dark side of old Hollywood. I’m not a big crier but this one made me shed a few tears over the price Hugo payed for fame.

The Gerbera

Characteristics: bright, colorful, symbol of rejuvenation
Native to: South Africa and Asia

Josh & Hazel’s Guide to not Dating by Christina Lauren

Josh and Hazel are two of my favorite characters of all times. I love these two – both together and apart. They’re complete opposites – one is tidy, one is a mess – but that’s what makes them fun. They have a bumpy history and when they realise they should just be friends, they set up a bunch of blind dates for each other. When things begin to escalate, they get stuck in a whirlwind of mixed feelings and crappy dates. So bright and fun!

The Lotus

Characteristics: grows in mud, pure, symbol of rebirth
Native to: Australia and Southern Asia

Gumiho by Kat Cho

Another easy choice. Gu Miyoung is half human, half Nine-Tailed Fox. She survives by feeding on the souls of men – but only the ones no one will miss. She hides in plain sight in busy modern Seoul with her mother, where no one suspects a thing. That is, until she reveals her true form to high schooler Jihoon while saving him from a Goblin attack. Fans of K-drama, anime or Asian folklore will LOVE this one.

The Carnation

Characteristics: delicate, soft, symbol of motherhood
Native to: Europe and Asia

Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo

This might seem like an odd choice but there is a very delicate story of grief within these pages, as Acevedo’s words speak to the soul. The different family dynamics and the young girls searching for a real home while dealing with the loss of a parent.. I can’t even. It’s such a beautiful book with such amazing representation. Read it!

The Sunflower

Characteristics: cheerful, big presence, symbol of light
Native to: America

Felix Ever After by Kacen Callender

The very moment I started to write Sunflower, I knew this book was the perfect match. Felix is trans and while he feels secure in his skin and his personality, he can’t escape his hormones. He just wants to experience love and he goes out of his way to find it. this book deals with a lot of heavy but important topics but at its core, it’s really about a bright young man finding a way to shine on his own.

Goodreads rating: 4.4
