 Through this book, Brianne attempts to share the deep strength and eternal grace she has seen through the dementia experience with her mother. If you have been forced to walk the journey of dementia, this book will give you the gift of hope that you've been looking for.

the threat below

 Three hundred years ago, something terrifying arose and pushed humanity to the brink of extinction. Now, a small remnant - descendants of the survivors who were able to escape the massacre below - lives above the clouds, on the top of a Mountain.

When they discover that their water supply is being poisoned Down Below, an expedition, including seventeen-year-old girl Icelyn Brathius, must descend and face the monsters, the Threat Below, that wiped out civilization centuries ago.

Icelyn quickly learns that all is not what it seems as she uncovers secrets hundreds of years old and struggles to stay alive in a world where no human is fit to survive.



The storyline is interesting and thrilling. It keeps you guessing to the very end. It has got mystery, suspense, and all the ingredients for a good thriller. I'm definitely looking forward to reading the sequel.

beast

 An urban adventure thriller inspired by the legend of the Narasimha Avatar and explained through Genetics.

It was always the same dream, a dream that began with darkness and blood.



When Assistant Commissioner of Police Aditi Kashyap is called upon to solve a gruesome triple homicide in a Mumbai suburb, she is dragged into the terrifying world of the Saimhas -- werelions -- who have lived alongside humans, hiding amongst them, since ancient times.

Faced with the unbelievable, Aditi has no choice but to join hands with Prithvi, an Enforcer called in to hunt down this seemingly otherworldly murderer.

But can Prithvi overcome the nightmarish burdens of his dark and violent past to unravel the mystery hidden deep within this secret world of werelions? Can he be trusted to save lives, or will he choose to serve a different, more powerful, master?

As a greater conspiracy unfolds and the very survival of humankind is placed under threat, Aditi and Prithvi must race through the dark underbelly of Mumbai -- from quiet suburbs to gritty brothels, from forgotten colonial tunnels to the lights and glamour of the inner city -- in search of a dangerous truth.

In search of a monster.

the talking drum

 It is 1971. The fictional city of Bellport, Massachusetts, is in decline with an urban redevelopment project on the horizon expected to transform this dying factory town into a thriving economic center. This transformation has a profound effect on three African American couples as their own personal transformations take place.



Sydney Stallworth steps away from her fellowship and law studies at an elite university to support husband Malachi's dream of opening a business in Bellport, his hometown--The Talking Drum Bookstore and Cultural Center--which he believes will benefit from the new development coming to the city. For Omar Bassari, an immigrant from Senegal, Bellport is where he will establish his drumming career and will be the launching pad for the establishment of his drumming institute from which he will spread African culture across the world.

However, he's on the verge of losing his foothold in Bellport and his marriage to college sweetheart, Natalie, as his neighborhood prepares to be taken by eminent domain. Della Tolliver has built a fragile sanctuary in Bellport for herself and daughter Jasmine, a troubled child prone to nightmares and outbursts, but that sanctuary is in jeopardy because Della's boyfriend, local activist Kwamรฉ Rodriguez, is--unbeknownst to her--the head of an arson ring torching buildings in the neighborhood scheduled for demolition.

Tensions rise as the demolition date moves closer and the pace of the arsons picks up. The couples find themselves at odds with a political system manipulating their lives and question the future of their relationships.


The Talking Drum by the author @lisabraxton6186 explores intra-racial, class, and cross-cultural tensions, along with the meaning of community and belonging.

 This facial oil from @deyga_organics rejuvenates your skin and provides a healthy glow to it. It is made with rose essential oil, almond oil, jojoba oil, rosehip oil, vitamin e and saffron which is the perfect way to brighten your skin.

It has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of saffron to keep your skin relatively clear of acne. The anti-oxidant content of rosehip helps reduce signs of ageing and keeps the skin looking younger.



The packaging is convenient and travel friendly and the fragrance is amazing so that's definitely a plus point.

And it works really well as a facial oil, but the only thing i don't get is that why they have named it as a 'serum'.

Truth



The seeker after Truth should be humbler than the dust. The world crushes the dust under its feet, but the seeker after Truth should so humble himself that even the dust could crush him. Only then, and not till then, will he have a glimpse of Truth.
