I'm a crazy happy reader. I'm always reading several books at once. A spiritual or self-help, a novel and an audio book are always competing for my attention.

I'm away walking the Camino, so I haven't wanted anything too heavy - literally and figuratively :). More about the Camino another time...

This is what has been accompanying me.

The Language of Flowers By Vanessa Diffenbaugh

This was a lovely, easy read about a young girl with a troubled childhood who is taken in by a florist, Renata, to help work in the store. 

The best part of the book however, is that flowers themselves almost become characters in their own right. 

It delves into the Victorian meanings of flowers and what they say when arranged together. One could give a bunch of flowers or a posy, and everything would be said by the flowers themselves. No note required. 

Simply a lovely book.

Born A Crime By trevor Noah

I got this on audible, narrated by Trevor himself, and found it IMPOSSIBLE to stop once I'd started. 

It covers his life in a township and anecdotes from his life that paint such a vivid picture, you almost feel you're right there with him. 

I know I'll listen to this again and again. It makes me miss home terribly listening to all the stories.

Water For Elephants by Sara Gruen

This one is next on my list to read.

The book got mixed reviews so I'm not really sure what to expect except a lot of erotica by the sounds of it.

Here goes...
