#LIVEFROMTHEDOCK

Last week I was lucky enough to be invited to the launch of a brand new television channel all about my home city : Liverpool. Made In Liverpool, is a brand new TV channel on Sky dedicated to everything Liverpool and so to be invited to be a part of their launch night was incredible. 

The event itself was held at Panam, on the docks, it was a great location for the night, almost paying homage to its history as This Morning used to be filmed there when it was located in Liverpool. The night consisted of interviews, food, drink, magic and music. 

Upon arrival, I got to meet Fran, the woman who invited me to the event. She was in charge of all of the marketing that had gone into the event, Getting to hear everything that had been done to make that night happen was really interesting. I later got to meet the other blogger who would be coming along: the lovely Hannah at Tink Jayne Adventures. It was so lovely to meet her and get the chance to talk to her throughout the night, and if you by any chance watched the launch, you might have seen us in the background of the shots. 

The programme showcased to amazing things Liverpool has to offer, from theatre, football, shopping, culture and music. The night was a full celebration of everything Liverpool and I am so incredibly happy that I got to be a part of it, if only for the night. 

The night was an outright success and everyone seemed to have a great time, I had a wonderful evening and got to meet some amazing people and even got a chance to have a go in a photobooth or two. The Made In Liverpool channel is available now in the Liverpool area on sky channel 117, and honestly its really great if you ever want to find out more about the city and whats going on.

Relativity by Antonia Hayes
Published 17th January 2017

" Ethan is an exceptionally gifted young boy, obsessed with physics and astronomy.
His single mother, Claire, is fiercely protective of her brilliant vulnerable son. But she cant shield him for ever from learning the truth about what happened to him when he was a baby; why Mark had to leave them all those years ago.
Now age twelve, Ethan is increasingly curious about his past, especially his father's absence in his life. When he intercepts a letter to Claire from Mark, he opens a lifetime of feelings that, like gravity, will pull the three together again."

When I was offered the chance to read this book, for this blog tour, I immediately said yes. The premise of the novel seemed so intriguing and through reading the book, it certainly delivered. 

The novel follows Claire, and her son Ethan, who is exceptionally gifted with an exquisite interest in physic and astronomy, although his gift has its own dark history. Everything they know gets turned upside down when Ethan's absent father, Mark appears in their lives.

"Relativity" was the first novel I read this year, and it really surprised me. I really enjoyed the book, it was a very compelling read, that brought to light many adult themes about grief, guilt and parenting. It had a very heartfelt tone underlying the plot of the relationship between Claire, Ethan and Mark. With the intertwining of snippets of the past to help to narrate the history of the family that plays center stage in the novel, you really feel for the characters in the novel and everything that happens to them.

 I thoroughly enjoyed the novel and it was quite an easy read once you get into the book. Its definitely a novel I would recommend everyone should read at some point in their life.
