Sunday Salon: Book Giveaway

The Sunday Salon.comWelcome to the Sunday Salon. Click on the logo to join in.

I'm enjoying The Language of Flowers, a novel by Vanessa Diffenbaugh. I learnt that one of my favorite flowers, the peony, really meant anger to the Victorians who assigned meanings to flowers. What to do with my box of notecards with those pale pink peonies, and with the yellow roses that mean jealousy, infidelity. Just have to make sure that the people I write to aren't interested in the language of flowers!

Thanks to HarperCollins, I'm giving away three books of Sanctus: the Novel by Simon Toyne. I describe the book as a religious thriller in the style of The DaVinci Code, but even more outrageous! Click here to enter the giveaway, which ends Oct. 4.

What have you been reading this past week?


  1. The Language of Flowers has really been received very well and I can't wait to read your thoughts as well. So far, it sounds like a book I definitely need to pick up sooner rather than later.

  2. I have been sitting on my hands, trying not to impulsively order The Language of Flowers from Amazon.

    But I really, really want to read it!

    So what do you think I'll do? LOL


  3. I'm waiting (and waiting and waiting!) for Flowers to come to my library. I think it will never get there!

    My Sunday Salon is Re-Read-Less-Ness. I hope you will stop by!

  4. I think you will be safe with those cards because not too many people know the language of flowers anymore.
    I have been reading a classic, Mysteries of Udolpho, and so far so good. Small print + big book=month long read :)


I love getting comments and your thoughts...
