I am thrilled to be a part of the Ultimate Blog Tour for Kristin Ward’s novel After the Green Withered, winner of the 2018 Best Indie Book Award. This dystopian novel is the first book in a series, also titled After the Green Withered, which is aimed at a young adult audience. The story follows an eighteen year old named Enora as she graduates high school and is enrolled in an academy where the elites and heads of society graduate and are doled jobs. Despite not wanting to go, Enora has no choice. The change would give her parents more water credits, which they desperately need. But the lack of water isn’t the only thing Enora and her world struggle with. There are other forces at work. Everything isn’t as it seems, and secrets better left hidden are slowly brought to life.

Quite some time ago, I read the first volume of a manga about a young girl and her pet giant spider living in a post apocalyptic world. Finally, I’ve read the second volume. Giant Spider & Me: A Post Apocalyptic Tale, Vol. 2 by Kikori Morino continues the story of Nagi and her giant spider, Asa. The second volume ended on a bit of a cliffhanger, and the story picks right back up where we left off here. Nagi’s home was damaged in a storm. Unable to repair the roof herself, she must venture into town and find someone willing to do the work. However, most people see giant spiders as monsters, not pets, and contention arises.

4 Fictional Podcasts for Audiobook Lovers

I discovered podcasts before audiobooks. I know that might sound funny to some people, but it’s true. Everyone around me is off listening to the audiobook version of the latest hot new book release, and I’m standing in my kitchen ignoring my burning dinner staring at my Google Home as I listen to a fictionalized podcast.
