  1. I've only read one of these, though others are already on my TBR list. THE LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS is the one I've read and I enjoyed it. It spoke to my passion about adoption and fostering, and flowers. I worked in a floral shop for several years.

  2. I loved Me Before You, and actually taught it one summer in France--we used it as an example of characgter. Also enjoyed After You, though it wasn't quite as good as the first one. I've been wanting to read The Language of Flowers, so I'll put it on my list.
