Thank you to @lovebookstours for my gifted copy for the tour!
This little book is filled with little things to do every day and encourages you to think about kindness – what you think it is and how you pass it on – what are your expectations in regards to kindness?
Obviously there is an importance in being kind to others but you also need to be kind to yourself and Thurston really breaks it down with tips on what to change in your daily life so you can do both!
My favourite tip included in the book has been thinking about my screen time. I’ve got back on the forest app and I’m really trying to reduce my time on my phone and laptop which really helps me focus – I actually read a whole book in a day which I haven’t done for a long time.
My favourite quote from the book is “Comparison is the Thief of Joy” – so true! I think this is especially important for users of social media, comparing yourself to someone else is a guaranteed way of putting you in a down mood (and it’s hard to stop, but you can do it!).
I’d recommend you get this book to cultivate your own kindness habits and see how it improves your physical and mental health and also check out the charity 52 Lives!
Her destiny was death. The shadows brought her back.
Wrongly accused of her brother’s murder, Sonara’s destiny was to die, sentenced to execution by her own mother. Punished and left for dead, the shadows have cursed her with a second life as a Shadowblood, cast out and hunted by society for her demon-like powers.
Now known as the Devil of the Deadlands, Sonara survives as a thief on the edge of society, fighting for survival on a quest to uncover what really happened to her brother and whether he is even dead at all…
