books with flower covers

April showers … bring books covered in pretty flowers.

We love spring. And we love a pretty book cover. So we’ve collected some of our favorite books with flower covers.

We figured gardening books would be too easy, so we stuck with novels and memoir. Some are brand new this spring, some are older, some are covers you may find in a used bookstore. We just couldn’t resist them! (Wish they were scratch ‘n sniff …)

Imagine these beauties stacked on your bedside table … a bouquet of books. Hello spring!
