Book Update.

So anyway I have been reading a few books lately I thought I might tell you about them.

The Miracles of Prato.
It was an interesting book but probably not one I would have chosen myself. You can find out what I thought about it here.

The Book Thief.
This is a book about a young girl named Liesel Meminger living in Germany in the late 30s and early 40s. She starts to take books and learns to read, from these books. It also portrays her relationships with those who live around her and how her foster family hides a Jewish fist-fighter from the Nazis. As well as her growing up.
I found this book really interesting as it gives a different perspective on that era not least because the narrator of the book is Death.

The Secret Life of Bees.
Lily Owens runs away from home with her black housekeeper in the summer of '64 when  race riots where breaking out cause of the new Civil Rights Act. She stays with the Boatwright sisters who teach her about bee keeping and she learns about her mother whom Lily believed she had killed when she was 4.
It was an interesting book because of the racial aspects but I thought there was too much wierd religion. The sisters were Catholic but with there own rituals added in and it seemed to me that it was completely devoid of God and the whole focus was on Mary, like she had God's power. I googled the author and found out she had journeyed into feminine spirituality and I found it kind of wierd.

So the next book I will read is The Time Traveler's Wife.

30 days of blogging - Day 29 - In this past month, what have you learned

In the past month I learnt thaqt I am still a private person there are some things that I don't like to share, and that I feel uncomfortable sharing. I also learnt that I still have trouble keeping up with things I have committed to sometimes, especially if they are not essential.

I also realised again that I love my family and that they are really important to me.

30 days of blogging - Day 28 - A picture of you last year and now, how have you changed since then?

So how have I changed well I've had my ears pierced. I think I've lost some weight. I have finished my TAFE course. My mother told me that I have matured a whole heap in the last 12 months. I guess I also feel a lot better about myself ( most of the time ).

30 Days of Blogging - Day 27 - Why are you doing this 30 day challenge

I am doing this challenge because I have been highly irregular about doing posts on my blog and I thought that if I did this then it would get me into the habit of blogging more regularly. It has been interesting and I will try and more regularly post now.

30 days of blogging - Day 24 - A letter to your parents

Dear Mum and Dad,
I just wanted to say thank you for being my parents I love you guys so much. I also wanted to thank you for introducing me to God who is perfect and understand's everything that is happening.
I know that you love me and that you want what's best for me but sometimes I feel that you are expecting me to do things your way and that you are not letting me work out the way that is right for me to do things. Yes, you are older that me and therefore have more experience in this world that I do but we all need to learn our own way even if that does include making mistakes.
I'm sorry that I don't always show you that I love you but I want you to know that I really do, and I just have to work out how to do things myself.
God bless

30 Days of Blogging - Day 22 - What makes you different from everyone else

Well everyone is unique so I'm different from everyone else in that way.
Also I have a harmless pattern on my rettinas but it is different from the other ones that people have but it is most similar to bear track pattern.
I had a benign cancer removed from my chin a while ago and it was very unusual, the doctor had never seen it before and had to look it up in his book.
I read an interesting range of books, fantasy, historical fantasy, (Christian) Chick Lit, biographies, Christian Self help and anything else that takes my fancy.

Blizzard - cause when my sister was little she used to call Blizabeth and so the rest of the family called me Blizzard.

Biff - mhy other brother likes to play around with being Kiwi and stuff

Fliz/Flizabeth - my sister had to do a biography on someone she knew for school and she chose to do me when she was writing it in her book she accidentally put an F at the beginning instead of and E and since then she sometimes calls me that ... and she is the only one who is allowed to.
