"Where are you from?” I started with what I thought was an easy question.

β€œTrue love, like any other strong and addicting drug, is boringβ€”once the tale of encounter and discovery is told, kisses quickly grow stale and caresses tiresome…except, of course, to those who share the kisses, who give and take the caresses while every sound and color of the world seems to deepen and brighten around them. As with any other strong drug, true first love is really only interesting to those who have become its prisoners. And, as is true of any other strong and addicting drug, true first love is dangerous.” Stephen King, Wizard and Glass

Seems like the cold Tulbach weather has come home with me. It is beautifully cold and rainy. Something to warm up the night.

This is today's #bookhaul πŸ˜‹ I had some gift vouchers left from Christmas and was in some desperate need of retail therapy thanks to a soul sucker of a work day πŸ˜₯ Starting to feel a slight chill in the air in the evenings... bring on winter, hot chocolate and good books!

Tsotsi... Pronounced "tss-ot-see". A slang word common to most South African languages, a tsotsi is a person who is a rogue , a mischief-maker, a criminal, a bad element.
.
.
.
I always try and get some local writers in the mix. Although I have never seen the movie the story has always intrigued me.
.
.
.
Set amid the sprawling Johannesburg township of Soweto, where survival is the primary objective, Tsotsi traces six days in the life of a ruthless young gang leader. When we meet Tsotsi, he is a man without a name who has repressed his past and now exists only to stage and execute vicious crimes. When he inadvertently kidnaps a baby, Tsotsi is confronted with memories of his own painful childhood, and this angry young man begins to rediscover his own humanity, dignity, and capacity to love.

Alosa easily became one of my favourite characters when I read Daughter of the Pirate King... Her ruthlessness. Stubbornness. Her love for her crew. Couldn't wait to get stuck into Daughter of the Siren Queen to continue the story and see where the Alosa Riden 'ship sails to 😍

I haven't read this beautiful classic in many years but it is a book I will always hold close to my heart, partly due to it being set in South Africa and partly due to the phenomenal story and characters.
QOTD : Is there an old classic you will always recommend?

Currently reading: Kopskoot by Rudi van Rensburg

Newly discovered this amazing author in the Afrikaans crime novel section. I'm a huge Deon Meyer fan, so I asked for recommendations on similar authors a while ago at the local bookstore. This book has been sitting on my bookshelf ever since, and now I can't put it down! #afrikaans #read #reading #currentlyreading #murdermystery #crimenovel #southafricanbooklover #southafricanbooks #rudivanrensburg #afrikaanseboeke #blackandwhiteonly #monotone #blackandwhitephotography #blackandwhite #books #booklover #bookstagram
