Where Dandelions Grow by Lydia Howe {Book Review}


Today I’m going to be writing the FIRST EVER BOOK REVIEW ON THIS BLOG! *applause*


Where Dandelions Grow v1.21
I’m reviewing Where Dandelions Grow, by Lydia Howe. This book will be released on 26th September (tomorrow). Congrats on getting this wonderful book published, Lydia! I’m really glad that I got a chance to read this beauty.


Cousins are forever, or at least they’re supposed to be. 
What happens when your world falls apart and your dreams are mocked by those closest to you? 
Destiny’s idyllic childhood full of laughter and cousins abruptly ended when her mom uprooted the family to move them across the country with strict instructions to never talk about Swallow Ridge again. Eleven years later Destiny moves back to her hometown, determined to find her cousins… and answers. 
Plagued by generations of bitterness and manipulation, Destiny hides her life-long goal – unwilling to let anyone else trample her fragile dreams. But life in the cozy town full of dandelions teaches Destiny there’s more to life than what she’s been taught. 
Is it possible Swallow Ridge not only holds the answers Destiny so intensely searches for, but also the hope?

(taken from Goodreads)



I’d definitely rate the plot of this book 5 stars, because it was the plot that made me want to continue reading.


There were many characters in this book, including Destiny,Lexie,Kamryn and Teal (the four cousins), Mrs Reed (a wise and kind woman who knows everything about Destiny’s family), Erin(Destiny’s mother) and so many more!
I’ve only mentioned a few of the main characters.



I really liked the characters, especially Destiny and Teal.


I loved how the book was formatted. Nothing more to say. 🙂



Overall Rating:


I’ve not really been a fan in terms of Young Adult Fiction, but this book was just the other way round. I loved every word, every sentence, every paragraph, every chapter and the entire story. Thanks so much Lydia for a great read. I recommend this book to everyone out there!

And so, I hope you enjoyed this little book review! Make sure to read this wonderful book.

*Note:I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for writing a review. This review was also based on my opinion, no one else influenced me.*

Also, a quick shoutout to Rachel’s Double Scoop Writing and Photography Contest! Check it out and sign up. 😀

And that’s about it! See you all very soon. 🙂

  1. Hi Mirra, I received your invitation to follow your blog and I was curious as to how we know each other..? Thanks for inviting me to follow, your blog is very pretty and I also like your header! I was also wondering, what religion are you? I am a Christian and want to shed Christ’s Light to all (that happens to be the name of my e-magazine, Christ’s Light 😉 )
    God bless! 😀


  2. Okay, this is the THIRD time now that I have seen this book just floating around coyly on different websites – Amazon, Goodreads and yours. It’s like the UNIVERSE is trying REALLY, REALLY hard to make me read this book which soynds AWESOME, by the way.

    Oh well, if it’s SUCH A BEAUTY, I guess I have no choice than to read it. ☺

    Lovely review, Mirra. ❤
