It's Monday! What are you Reading?

Hosted By Sheila @ Book Journey I have never participated in 'It's Monday! What are you Reading?' and am pretty new to this book blogging adventure but am excited to be able to join in! I only hope that I can keep pace with everyone so that I am not the only one saying "Ummm...still reading xxxxx" every week!! LOL :) That shouldn't be a problem at the moment though as I am on holidays for the next 3 weeks so no work distractions are in the foreseeable 3 week future.

This week I am reading The Language of Flowers By Vanessa Diffenbaugh. I have only read the first 60 or so pages and am already keenly searching for my own text about flower meanings which I have found very interesting! I am enjoying it so far - definitely an easier read than Safran Foer but I think that's a good thing for me at the moment. Beautiful cover on this book too! I have included an interview with Vanessa Diffenbaugh about the book below along with the Amazon book description. I am really enjoying it so far! 

I am also reading 100 Things By Sebastian Terry. The story of this guy's adventure is amazing. If you don't know his background, then check out his website by clicking here. His book is fantastic and I have found myself at various points so far laughing, crying, gasping and even rolling my eyes! But there is a serious side to Sebastian's 100 Things adventure as it was the death of a close friend that motivated him to begin the journey and he is now raising money for Camp Quality which raises funds for fun-filled camps for children with cancer.

Here is the Product Description from Amazon. 
Have you ever allowed yourself time to think about what's really important to you? Something you have always dreamed of doing? In a moment of reflection after the loss of a friend, Sebastian Terry's answer is a list of 100 things, the things he's always wanted to do. Sebastian incredible adventure which sees him Get Shot in Columbia, Crash the Red Carpet at the Cannes Film Festival and Cycle Through Cuba - all in an effort to ensure he lives a life without regrets. Now more than halfway through his list, Sebastian has released that his journey is part of something so much bigger ... 100 Things is a humorous, action-packed story for anyone who's ever dreamed about living every day like it was their last.


  1. The Language of Flowers is on my TBR list. I too find the meaning of flowers interesting, so sounds like a good book for me. Enjoy your reading!

  2. The Language of Flowers is one I want to get to this year. Have a great week of reading.
