Image
No long babble before or after just the review itself because that is what is post is about and i have enough to say about the book itself that i want you all to read. 

So lets starts: 

Here are the Book facts: 
Title: The Language of Flowers Author: Vanessa Diffenbaugh Language: English Pages: 354 without the dictionary or 362 with it  (Paperback) series: No standalone book Overall rating: 5 out of 5 Summary on the book: 
"The Victorian language of flowers was used to convey romantic expressions: honeysuckle for devotion, asters for patience, and red roses for love. But for Victoria Jones, it's been more useful in communication mistrust and solitude. After a childhood spent in the foster-care system, she is unable to get close to anybody, and her only connection to the world is through flowers and their meanings. Now eighteen and emancipated from the system with nowhere to go, Victoria realizes she has a gift for helping others through the flowers, she chooses for them. But an unexpec…

Book Review: Someday, Someday, Maybe

This was a re-read for me in October and i only doing the Review now, because well I am still working on this regular blogging thing. But better late then never right?

As i said it is a re-read so i already read this book once before which should say something to you all. Most people -myself included in that- re-read books mostly because they enjoyed them the first time enough to want to go back and do it all again. 

This is what this book is to me. I enjoy it enough to want to re-read it, and even after already having read it twice now, i would not have anything against reading it a third time in a year or two, simply because i really enjoyed most of this book enough to read it again. 

Alright into the actual book review now: 

Here are the Book facts: 
Title: Someday, Someday, Maybe Author: Lauren Graham Language: English Pages: 344  (Hardcover) series: standalone, but apparently Graham is writing on a second novel that will pick up where this one left off but when that one will come out? no …

Book Review: Anna and the French Kiss

Another Book Review, because I am hanging behind -yet again- in posting and i have not put anything on my nails in the last two weeks, actually, so i don't have anything else right now that i have ready and done. And lets just be overly honest here for a second: i just want to talk about a book, because i just want to talk about book any time of the day and i wanted to finally post again something -anything. And since i am not in the mood for anything else, lets just go talk about some books, alright? 

Here is another book that i read in October and enjoyed. 

After "Annihilation" -my first Book review by the way ;)- I tried to read Maleficent and was just not in the mood for something like that at all, so I decided that i would read "Anna and the French Kiss" instead, mostly because it sounded and was talked about as a very cute and "must-read" romance book. I wanted something fast and cute, so why not?

Book Review: Annihilation

Yay! Book Review! Who else is excited? I hope i am not the only one, but even if that is the case, i am more then excited for more then one person so yay! (Lets just yay a few more times, shall we? No lets not do that that more then enough)

So lets get a bit more serious here now. 
First of all i did not plan to read this book in October, to be honest i did not even know about this book when i posted one of my very few posts in October, which was my "To-be-read-in-October" Book pile. Amazon? A very tricky and mean side that I just can not withstand in any way or form. I was just looking around, i wanted to get a bit of a head-start with my Christmas shopping and just kicking along and all of a sudden there it was: Annihilation, the cover, the book itself, everything... something just screamed to me: READ ME! READ ME NOW!
Well so i bought it after reading the Summary and so it became a surprise in more then the sense of that i did not know or plan to read this book. 
So before yo…
