Books Read in April



Mockingjay (The Hunger Games #3) By Suzanne Collins
Excellent end to a excellent trilogy loved it 5/5



Georgia's English Rose By J.T. Harding

Short story about two girls in world war 2 who fall in love and have a lot of sex discovering each others bodies bit by bit. Would of liked more story though other then then sex 3/5



Before I Go To Sleep By S.J. Watson

A woman wakes up everyday not knowing where she is and who the man she is sleeping next to is in 51st date style memory loss, this is a thriller though and kept me guessing right to the end everytime I thought I had guessed what was going to happen I was wrong, a good read 4/5



Warm Bodies By Isaac Marion

Anyone that knows me knows that I am absolutely obsessed with Zombies but yet I had never read a book from the Zombies POV and when I read the synopsis and saw that its a romance a zombie falling in love with a human I thought ewww and then thought I'm gonna hate this but omg how wrong was I, I loved it from the start and absolutely love R the main zombie character. I didn't want this book to end and was sad when it did but I here they are making a movie so yay
One of my fave lines from the book:
"the irony of being a Zombie is that everything is funny, but you can't smile, because your lips have rotted off"
My favourite read of the month 5/5
This is my favourite song at the moment Dr. Zeus - Aag Ka Dariya and it's from my favourite movie Four Lions

Amish

I have always been fascinated by the Amish way of life but don't really know that much about it apart from a Jodi Picoult novel I read a few years back called Plain Truth.
Lately there has been a series on channel 4 called Living with the Amish where a group of teens from the UK go over to America to live with different Amish families a weeks stay with each family. It's a really great series and gives you a real glimpse into the Amish way of life.
I really like the way they live and their values I would love to go and stay with a Amish family for a while think it would be a amazing experience.
The program is on Thursday's at 8pm but you can watch it on 4od where they have the first 4 episodes to watch.

Through that program I learnt of another series which was on channel 4 a while back called Amish- world's squarest teenagers where a group of 5 Amish teens came to the UK to experience our different ways of life staying with 4 very different families over a 4 week period.
I learnt about Rumspringa which is a time when Amish brought up teens get freedom to experience things outside in the world hanging out with mates, dating and some even drink alcohol. Rumspringa ends when the person decides to be baptized as Amish
I just finished watching the series on 4od and it's excellent.

There is a book I'm going to get its
Growing Up Amish: The Teenage Years, by Richard Stevick.
Dear Non-Pregnant Person,
I hope you find these guidelines helpful in your interactions with pregnant women, as failing to follow them may result in serious physical harm. If you are thinking, surely she doesn’t mean me – then you should probably read this twice.

1. The appropriate response to a couple telling you they are having a baby is ‘Congratulations!’ with enthusiasm. Any other response makes you a jerk.

2. Through the wonders of science, we now know that babies are made ONLY by the mother and father – not grandparents. Unless the baby is in your uterus or you are the man that helped put it there, you may not ever use the phrase ‘my baby’.

3. On the same note, unless you made the baby as defined in 2, the pregnancy, birth, and raising of the child are not about you. You do not have input. No one wants to hear your opinion unless they ask for it…

4. The body of a pregnant woman should be treated the same as any other body. You would not randomly touch someone’s stomach if they were not pregnant, nor would you inquire into the condition of their uterus, cervix, or how they plan to use their breasts. Pregnancy does not remove all traces of privacy from a woman.

5. Likewise, no woman wants to hear comments on her weight…ever. A pregnant woman does not find it flattering that you think she is about is pop, must be having twins, looks swollen or has gained weight in her face. Telling her she looks too small only makes her worry that she is somehow starving her baby. Making such comments invite her to critique your physical appearance and you may not act offended. The only acceptable comment on appearance is ‘You look fabulous!’.

6. By the time we are 20-30 years old, most of us have picked up on the fact that the summer is hot. We are hot every summer when we are not pregnant. We don’t need you to point out that we will be miserably hot before the baby comes. Nor do we need to know how badly you will feel for us because we will be pregnant during the summer and how glad you are that YOU will not be pregnant this coming summer.

7. There is a reason that tickets to Labor & Delivery are not yet sold on Ticketmaster. Childbirth is actually not a public event. It may sound crazy, but some women really do not relish the idea of their mother, MIL, or a host of other family members seeing their bare butt and genitals. Also, some people simply feel like the birth of their child is a private and emotional moment to be shared only by the parents. You weren’t invited to be there when the baby was created, you probably won’t be invited to be there when it comes out either.

8. Like everything else in life, unless you receive an invitation, you are NOT invited. This includes doctor appointments, ultrasounds, labor, delivery, the hospital, and the parent’s home. You do not decide if you will be there for the birth or if you will move in with the new parents to ‘help out’. If your assistance is desired, rest assured that you will be asked for it.

9. If you are asked to help after the birth, this means you should clean up the house, help with cooking meals, and generally stay out of the way. Holding the baby more than the parents, interfering with breastfeeding and sleeping schedules, and making a woman who is still leaking fluid from multiple locations lift a finger in housework is not helping.

10. The only people entitled to time with the baby are the parents. Whether they choose to have you at the hospital for the birth or ask for you to wait three weeks to visit, appreciate that you are being given the privilege of seeing their child. Complaining or showing disappointment only encourages the parents to include you less.

Sincerely,
All the Pregnant Women in the World

Doctor Who

I am totally obsessed with Doctor Who at the moment, I have never been into this sort of thing but Aleesha is obsessed more then me she gets up in the morning first thing she does is stick a episode on.
First episode I saw was the one with the statues in that big old house was great I then seen some series 3 episodes round my mates yard.
So I started watching it from the beginning about a week ago am half way through series 2 I wasn't sure if I would like David Tennant as the Doctor because I liked Christopher Eccleston so much and oh I just realised he's in 28 days later but yeah anyway I really like David Tennant which Aleesha is very happy about cos she is forever going on that David Tennant is the best Doctor ever.
I watched the episode today with the alternate universe got really sad when Mickey decided to stay behind I really started to like him alot it was strange at first cos I've seen him in alot of movies all based in London hood and he always plays the nasty fucker in them.
Fuck sake just got out the bath and he has been messing with the litter tray there is cat litter literally all over the kitchen floor thank god its clean cat litter so I can just hoover it up hopefully he will just go to sleep on the bed now dunno why he is doing this.
