In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren.
This week I bought some more $5 books, and my local Angus and Robertson was closing down (aww!), so they also had some YA fiction for 50% off. I've told you before, I just can't resist a book sale!

I also entered a Goodreads giveaway a few weeks ago, and I won. I'd had a bad day, so when I arrived home and checked my email, I was super surprised to find an email from Goodreads advising me to expect my book in 4-6 weeks.. Well, it arrived 5 days later, and I'm very excited to get the opportunity to read it!
The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh (ARC) - from Pan Macmillan Australia on Goodreads
The Victorian language of flowers was used to express emotions: honeysuckle for devotion, azaleas for passion, and red roses for love. But for Victoria Jones, it has been more useful in conveying feelings like grief, 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, Victoria has nowhere to go, and sleeps in a public park, where she plants a small garden of her own. When her talent is discovered by a local florist, she discovers her gift for helping others through the flowers she chooses for them. But it takes meeting a mysterious vendor at the flower market for her to realise what's been missing in her own life, and as she starts to fall for him, she must decide whether it's worth risking everything for a second chance at happiness. - (Goodreads)
