I spent the last week curled up on the couch with a nice cuppa tea and a blanket when it was chilly becuse of the rain and read a whole bunch of books.

I love to read, and drink tea.
Generally at the same time.

This is a story of an orphan girl who has just been released from custody of the state at the age of 18. It recounts her struggles to survive in the world with no education, money or even a place to live. The only thing she knows is flowers and how they communicate messages. Throughout the book, she tells her story of the present and how it entwines with her past, as a child of only 10 and how she "ruined" her chance at a family. Its a beautifully written book, filled with angst and love. The details in the language of flowers and the way they make the characters react is mind blowing. Along with all the family drama, there's a hidden love story that would be the basis of her new life.

I have yet to read this book, I think I'll start later, but from what I've heard its a forbidden love story between two of the performers in the night circus. We shall see.

I'm a blogger from Johannesburg. Would you expect to see ant other book than 'Mushy Peas on Toast? Best seller by the blogger of A story of a Joburg Girl who is finding her own way in the city of Gold.

Keep Reading!

With Love,
