My TBR List - ...Bring May Flowers




And the Winner is...


With 50% of the vote!

******************

Welcome to my May 2016 edition of My To Be Read List, hosted by Michelle @ Because Reading. This is a monthly meme where we offer up 3 choices from our TBR pile for our readers to pick from to help us make the super hard decision of "what do I read next?" a little easier and to whittle away at the ever growing TBR Mountain! 

Theme: ...Bring May Flowers, a continuation on last month's saying/theme. This month all my titles have flowers in them.  ;) Feel free to leave me a comment and tell me which you chose and why.

The poll will stay open through Friday 5/13 , and I'll update this post with the winning book on Saturday 5/14, then post a review on the last Saturday of the month, 5/28.

If you think this sounds fun and would like to join (the more the merrier, because we love voting!) please head on over to Because Reading where Michelle lays out the rules for us!

And the choices are...

From Goodreads:

The country may be struggling through the Great Depression, but the good ladies of Darling, Alabama, are determined to keep their chins up and their town beautiful. Their garden club, the Darling Dahlias, has just inherited a new clubhouse and garden, complete with two beautiful cucumber trees in full bloom.

But life in Darling is not all garden parties and rosemary lemonade.

When local blond bombshell Bunny Scott is found in a suspicious car wreck, the Dahlias decide to dig into the town's buried secrets, and club members Lizzy, Ophelia, and Verna soon find leads sprouting up faster than weeds. The town is all abuzz with news of an escaped convict from the prison farm, rumors of trouble at the bank, and tales of a ghost heard digging around the cucumber tree. If anyone can get to the root of these mysteries, it's the Darling Dahlias.
From Goodreads:

(Pink Carnation #11) In October of 1806, the Little Season is in full swing, and Sally Fitzhugh has had enough of the endless parties and balls. With a rampant vampire craze sparked by the novel The Convent of Orsino, it seems no one can speak of anything else. But when Sally hears a rumor that the reclusive Duke of Belliston is an actual vampire, she cannot resist the challenge of proving such nonsense false. At a ball in Belliston Square, she ventures across the gardens and encounters the mysterious Duke.

Lucien, Duke of Belliston, is well versed in the trouble gossip can bring. He’s returned home to dispel the rumors of scandal surrounding his parents’ deaths, which hint at everything from treason to dark sorcery. While he searches for the truth, he welcomes his fearsome reputation—until a woman is found dead in Richmond. Her blood drained from her throat.

Lucien and Sally join forces to stop the so-called vampire from killing again. Someone managed to get away with killing the last Duke of Belliston. But they won’t kill this duke—not if Sally has anything to say about it.
From Goodreads:

October "Toby" Daye, a changeling who is half human and half fae, has been an outsider from birth. After getting burned by both sides of her heritage, Toby has denied the Faerie world, retreating to a "normal" life. Unfortunately for her, the Faerie world has other ideas...

The murder of Countess Evening Winterrose pulls Toby back into the fae world. Unable to resist Evening's dying curse, which binds her to investigate, Toby must resume her former position as knight errant and renew old alliances. As she steps back into fae society, dealing with a cast of characters not entirely good or evil, she realizes that more than her own life will be forfeited if she cannot find Evening's killer.

  3. Surprisingly, I went with The Mark of the Midnight Manzanilla even though I'm not really into vampire books. But this one really sounds interesting.

  4. I like the sound of the Dahlias book. However, the Manzanilla one sounds good too.

  5. These all sound good. I enjoyed a novel by Lauren Willig in the past quite a bit, but I went with Rosemary and Rue because that's more in line with what I'm in the mood for. :-) I hope you enjoy whichever one wins!

  7. I voted for Rosemary and Hue as that's the only one of these three that sounds familiar. And who doesn't like a good Fae story?

  8. I love your theme ideas!! I voted for the Dahlia's ---it sounded lighter and sometimes that makes for a good transition book if you are in the mood for something more fun.
