Crazy Hair Ladies Workshop GIVEAWAY and some books

http://natashamay.blogspot.com/p/on-line-workshop.html
Hi everyone! We had ice "issues" in my country that broke a lot o trees and power poles and we were without electricity for 10 days. Check THIS out to see how it looked like. Yes, it sucked big time but I caught up on my reading. :) From actual physical books since my Kindle was not charged.

Have you read The Alchemistby Paulo Coelho? And if not, why not? I had that book sitting on my shelf a long time untouched and I can't believe what I was missing. I'm so glad I've read it and what amazes me even more is that it was written in 1988. This book is actually about our journey through life and following our destiny more than anything.

I continued with Veronika Decides to Diesince it's located in my home town Ljubljana but it's a different kind of book even if the author is the same and I couldn't get through it.

And to continue with this topic I finally read Eat, Pray, Love. I saw the movie and I wasn't really impressed by it so I wasn't keen on reading the book either. But I had no choice now since I was bored out of my mind. :) Again, I'm glad I read it. It's different than what movie led me to believe. The romance part is very subtle and it's more about the author's spiritual journey.

The sequel Committed: A Love Storyby Elizabeth Gilbert is not really to my taste and I was struggling to read it when I finally gave up on it. It was too much research data in there.

Another book I avoided for a while was The Fault in Our Starsby John Green. I really didn't want to read a sad cancer story but again the book surprised me. I mean, I still cried my eyes out but the story was really good and the writing style was really good although I went into reading it with a little prejudice since I know John Green from his YouTube channel and I wasn't really sure if he's any good at writing. Let me tell you, he is.

Of course I also finished the The Hunger Games Trilogyand loved it. I loved the movies as well and I can't wait for the third one to come out.

  1. I love The Hunger Games Trilogy, did quite a bit of crying while reading them. Yes, I'm a wimp.

    Sorry about the weather issues. We are kind of on the same boat. It blows.

    I wish I could paint, so I could enter your giveaway or take your class. But I've share it, so a lucky person can create some awesome lady with magnificent crazy hair!

  3. Sorry you had such bad weather, we were lucky here, no snow and almost no ice in western Germany. Paul Coelho's books are wonderful, and the Alchemist is a fantastic book. Valerie

  8. I will not be complaining about the snow and ice we have after seeing those dreadful ice-encapsulated car scenes! How does one exist is a situation like that? And 10 days with no electricity, how did you stay warm?

  10. Thanks for visiting my blog earlier:) I am following and thank you for the giveaway offer- I do love your paintings! I read Eat Pray Love and took notes and some great quotes from it, so I had to get the movie-much preferred the book. I can't imagine having no power for 10 days-so glad you were able to handle it so well. I'd have been pretty miserable after a few days.

  16. It sounds like your country and my little speck in the USA are fighting mother nature these days. I would love to win a spot in your upcoming class. I follow you so I can gather some inspiration from these girls with the wild hair. It would teach me so much to be able to take your class. Thanks for the opportunity. I will wait patiently for that magic number!

  17. OH MY!!!!!! 5 Days is the longest I have had to go with out power... it was tough and we didn't have anywhere near the amount of ice you had. The photos totally blow me away. I would have read the whole time too. Thanks for another chance at one of your fantastic classes :)

  18. Holy cow all your reading! I wish I had time to read some books, but it's really been ages. In fact, the last six or seven books I ordered online have not even been read! I would also like to read John Green, but haven't picked one yet. (Of course, I still have the problem of no time to read lol.)

    I love Paulo Coelho's books but haven't read Alchemist though.
    Best wishes with your workshop :)

  24. Wow thats a lot of reading!!! Atleast you had that to keep you busy. Good luck with your new art course, looks fabulous! :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I read a lot - but I know what you mean about books we judge in advance. Happened to me recently when I started a book that I thought was another story and loved the book (even though I wouldn't have picked it up if it wasn't for my title confusion). Glad you've gotten your electricity back - 10 days is a long time. Also glad you could see some benefit to a bad situation!

  26. Good to hear that the power has been restored. Last year in winter we too faced it and it was not easy.
    Paulo Coelho is one of my favorite authors and the Alchemist is a favorite of mine.
    Thank you for the great giveaway.

  27. Wow, do you ever read a lot! I'll have to put "The Alchemist" on my reading list, sounds like a good read.

    Good luck with your art workshop.

  28. I am such a Paul Coelho fan. I do believe The Alchemist tells us everything we need to know about reaching our personal legend. work through the fear and we can have it all. Working on that. Also loved Eat, Pray, Love. Sorry I haven't been around - crazy busy with my art and just got over a bought of typhoid fever!!! shock and awe. Have fun with your class big hugs, Donna

    Smiles from Belgium,
    Saskia :)
