Publication date: October 15th 2018
Genres: Adult, Comedy, Romance
It’s the year 2216, and ever since Lydia Humsworth was little, she’s heard stories about electricity that used to light up skylines and planes that soared through the sky like birds. There were also stories about The Shift, which plunged the world into darkness nearly two hundred years ago and gave some people magical abilities. These people came to call themselves sorcerers.
Now, in the small village of Aldea, sixteen-year-old Lydia is training to be a Fighter in hopes of one day protecting her village. Her best friend, Daniel, spends his days working long hard hours on the farm. Humans and sorcerers have always seemed to coincide peacefully, but when Leonardo Kinch–a deranged sorcerer who blames humans for the death of his family–starts a war against humans, nothing is as they believed.

When war rages across the country, Lydia and Daniel must do everything they can to stop the war and stay alive, or risk the human race falling into extinction.

Spookathon is a week long readathon hosted by Lala from BooksandLala. It begins today, October 15 and runs until 21st October. The aim is to read anything that is spooky. There are optional challenges and you can do as many as you like. I don't expect to read all of these books but I thought it would be fun to create a TBR anyway!

Relaxing: The Good, The Bad And The Ugly

Not every day is the same. Some days can be fun and cosy, like sitting on a great big sofa. And other days feel like being thrown at a giant cactus. Whether you’re going through a hectic project at work or you’re struggling with a complicated relationship at home, bad days happen to everyone. Stress is, unfortunately, a natural part of your day. As a result, most people have come up with their own coping mechanisms to escape stress. And thankfully, there are plenty of options for you to leave behind your worries and help your mind to relax. However, relaxing doesn’t come without risk. There is a healthy balance to maintain, namely relaxing is important, but not as much as learning how to manage your stress effectively. Here’s a little overview of how relaxing can sometimes put your health at risk.

Appreciating Yourself Just A Little More

Are you someone who always smiles when you look in the mirror? Maybe not, but you at least have something good to think whilst you’re there, right? Maybe you’re someone who can always be proud of what you achieved, because you know you’ve tried your best in whatever you’ve set your mind to, and you can look back with a sense of accomplishment?

But if you can’t do any of those things, then now’s the time to change your habits.
