November Book Haul!

This month I was able to pick up some popular (mainly fantasy) books that coincidentally are all quite red! It has been a while since I have stepped into a bookstore and this month, I went in not one but two bookshops! #heaven

Here are the books I picked up this month:


Scythe by Neal Shusterman 

I have heard quite a bit about this book. It follows a world where everything has been cured and the only way that people can be killed is by the hand of a scythe. Scythes are members of society that are chosen to have this duty. They are told to 'glean' humans according to the statistics of how people died and the demographics of people that died before death was stopped. Everyone fears the scythes but they leave them to 'glean' as it is deemed necessary to maintain the size of the population. In this book we follow two characters who are chosen to potentially be scythes.

I have already started reading this book and I am really enjoying it so far. It is quite unique from what I have read in the past and I'm finding the writing style fast-paced which is perfect for me.

4 Spiritual Ways To Improve Your Mental Health

When it comes to your mental health, you may feel like you’ve got self-care covered. And yes, self-care is keeping your body clean and healthy, and it may be applying a facemask some days. However, embracing the spiritual could bring you one step closer to finding your true and happy self, and if that’s true, then we think it’s worth a try. Even if you currently think it’s all made-up fluffy stuff, it has actually been linked to good mental health and a strong sense of self. So, here are four ways to give it a go.


1. Meditation
Meditation is really good for your mental health, even if you think that it sounds a bit cliche. Taking some time out to think about what has really happened in your day - what you’re happy about, and what you want to change going into tomorrow - will keep you in touch with your inner sense of self, and focused upon the little goals that you’ve set for yourself. Headspace is a useful app if you need a bit of guidance.

Are You Neglecting These Key Areas Of Health?


When it comes to your body, are you in control? Do you feel as if you’re as healthy as you can be? Do you care about how you feel in yourself? How much energy you have? And really making the most out of your life? If this is the case, then it’s just so important for you to be healthier. And, be honest with yourself, do you feel as if you’re currently being as healthy as possible? Do you make conscious efforts to feel good and energized and healthy at all times? Would you agree that you’re in the best condition of your life, and that none of your own actions are putting your health at risk? It’s likely to be that your answer is no here - because so many of us aren’t all that sure on what we can do for our health levels.

And that’s okay. It’s okay to be unsure. But as long as you want to be healthier and you’re willing to learn, you can turn things around quite quickly. Or maybe you’re someone that is making quite the effort to get your health under control. And you care about your body and feeling good? Are you’re really sure that you’re doing all you can, but you’d love to know if there’s more you can do? Well, you’ve come to the right place. Because we’re going to run through the key areas of health that you may be neglecting, and what you can do about it.
