Welcome back guys!
Today I am back with another Life Hack/ Organisation post that will hopefully provide you with some much-needed advice and motivation to living happy and healthy (despite the junk food presented in the cover image).
If you remember, I did a post last month titled “12 Things I do To Stay Organised & Stress-Free”, which outlines the things I do that are guaranteed to help anyone stay organised and stress-free. In this post I outline reasons why it should be common practice to make your lunch after you have finished your dinner.
- There is food everywhere!
- You have time to make your lunch, preventing you from running around like a crazy person in the morning and pulling together an unsatisfying concoction usually consisting of a tuna can and bread – which I have done many times. Hence saving time to do other stuff the following morning.
- You will save money because you’re not buying your lunch.
- You will eat healthier since you are not eating out and you’ll know what is going into your mouth, making you feel a lot less guilty about what you are eating.
- You won’t pack more food than necessary. Since you have just eaten dinner, you are now full and will not want to eat anymore, hence you will be less willing to pack more food for the next day. do not feel the need to pack lots of food for the next day.
- You will feel healthier, and your body will thank you 🙂
Welcome Back Bookaholics!
Welcome back to another Book Review!!
Today I am going to discuss with you all what I thought of the first Magnus Chase and The Gods of Asgard novel, Magnus Chase and The Sword of summer by Rick Riordan. I did an anticipation post for this over a year ago which was titled; Why I can’t wait to read… – I know cool title right?
It has been a ridiculously long time since I have read Magnus Chase and The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan, the first book in the Magnus Chase and The Gods of Asgard series, but despite the time frame, I still remember how I felt reading this amazing book, due to its lasting impact it has had on me.
After becoming super obsessed with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, especially Thor and Loki – who are played by the fabulous Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston respectively – I started researching Norse Mythology as we had touched on it briefly in school and I had read up on some myths and legends on Tumblr. As I became further invested into Norse Mythology and some other mythologies I turned to Rick Riordan – who’s books I shamefully have never read – and saw that he was releasing a novel based on Norse Mythology called Magnus Chase and The Gods of Asgard, which I knew I just had to read.
Being the first ever Rick Riordan book I have ever read – sad? I know right – I had super high expectations, and trust me I was NOT disappointed!
About The Book:
Magnus Chase has always been a troubled kid. Since his mother’s mysterious death, he’s lived alone on the streets of Boston, surviving by his wits, keeping one step ahead of the police and the truant officers.
One day, he’s tracked down by an uncle he’s never met—a man his mother claimed was dangerous. His uncle tells him an impossible secret: Magnus is the son of a Norse god.
The Viking myths are true. The gods of Asgard are preparing for war. Trolls, giants and worse monsters are stirring for doomsday. To prevent Ragnarok, Magnus must search the Nine Worlds for a weapon that has been lost for thousands of years.
When an attack by fire giants forces him to choose between his own safety and the lives of hundreds of innocents, Magnus makes a fatal decision.
Sometimes, the only way to start a new life is to die . . .
Magnus Chase and The Sword of Summer is the first book in another one of Rick Riordan’s epic series which does feature one character from his Percy Jackson and The Olympians series – although I am not going to mention who – I will say that this person is a relative of Magnus’s and you DO NOT need to have read any of Rick’s books prior to picking up this one. As I said previously, I haven’t and I still had an enjoyable reading experience.
I borrowed the Australian paperback edition from a friend of mine – and a mad Percy Jackson fan. I treated this book like it was gold. And it certainly looked like it…
