The Source Book Review | AD

Hey everyone it’s Zainab, welcome or welcome back to Zainab Chats! Today, I’m going to be reviewing a new book called, ‘The Source’ by Ifunanya C Ogo. It’s a very interesting novel, so when Ifunanya reached out to me and asked me if she could send me the book and share a review, I was so excited, but don’t worry all the opinions in this review are genuine! so we are just going to jump right into the review! Some spoilers ahead.

My Opinion:
The Source is a fantasy fiction book with very interesting characters and story lines. It tells the stories of Madison and Jason waking up on an Island with no memories of who they are. Madison and Jason are trying to figure out who they are and what they’re doing on the island. One of the most interesting things about the plot is everytime the two of them would go to sleep, they would dream one of their memories! For the rest of the story, they are trying to piece together their memories to try and figure out their purpose on the island!

My favourite thing about the book was the whole concept itself. The fact that Madison and Jason both find out they’re transcenders (people with powers) is so cool and the way there’s a lot of backstory to the plot such as different types of particles and types of sources really draws you into the plot more!

I also loved the idea of ‘The Master’ being someone who has discovered the most about their transcender powers. The sense of him being a bit of an anonymous old man nobody really knew much about added some mystery to the story which I really enjoyed!

There was a lot of multiple narrative in the story (the story being told in different perspectives) which was really unique but sometimes I did find it a little bit confusing. If you do like stories being told in different perspectives I’m sure you would enjoy the book more! Also, in terms of the pace, it was quite fast which I actually really enjoyed as I felt I could indulge into the story more!

Synopsis:
A girl, unwanted in the world, wakes up on an island, pleasantly deserted. Memories gone, nothing holding her back, she is free. A boy, who prides knowledge over anything else, realises just how much he doesn’t know, especially about himself. Alone in a strange land with no memories, his intellect is all he has. Then they find each other again. Memories return slowly, and with them, a myriad of questions. And then their powers. With them, the children realise what they must do.She must find the Source.And he must confront the darker unknown side of himself, one that will destroy them both if not dealt with…

Top 5 Favourite Productive Apps

Hey everyone, it’s Zainab! Welcome back to the blog, I know during lockdown a lot of people have been struggling with productivity, so I want to share 5 apps or websites that can help with productivity!

Before I get into the list, I just want to say thank you so much for 90 followers! I really appreciate it! we are so close to 100!!! Let’s just jump into it!

  1. Pinterest
    For those of you who don’t know what Pinterest is, it’s essentially an app where you can share ideas on basically anything! I personally don’t use it anymore but if you need study advice or advice for organising, I can guarantee you will find something on there to help with productivity!
  2. Google Calendar
    This is probably the best calendar app I’ve ever used! On Google Calendar, you can categorise your events as well as set reminders and goals for yourself to get things done throughout the day! It’s probably my favourite app out of the whole list!
  3. Beautiful AI
    If you haven’t heard of Beautiful AI then you are missing out! If you don’t know what it is, then I’ll tell you! Beautiful AI is a presentation software that allows you to make amazing slideshows in such an easy way! Not to mention, it’s free!
  4. Google Keep / Apple Notes
    Both of these apps are very similar, you can use both Google Keep and Apple Notes to take notes on anything you need to do, whether it’s your school homework or a daily to do list! I personally use Apple Notes, but I know Google Keep is great if you want to make your notes look aesthetic!
  5. Google Jamboard
    I love using Google Jamboard! If you don’t know what it is, Google Jamboard is an interactive whiteboard! You can add all your ideas into one slide, as well as add sticky notes, sketch on it and present to an audience! It’s a great way to keep all your ideas together and then save them to Google Drive! You can either access it online or use the mobile app!

So, that’s it! I hope you enjoyed reading about these 5 softwares, hopefully you can use one of them to help increase your productivity!
