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.
Last year I participated in the O.W.L.s Readathon, a readathon based on the O.W.L. exams all 5th year Hogwarts students take in the Harry Potter series. It’s almost time for the 2019 O.W.L. Readathon, and I’m here today with a little information about the readathon for anyone who wants to participate along with my TBR.
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.
I have so many arcs that I don’t even know where to start anymore. I also have more unread backlist books sitting on my shelves than I can count. This weekend I’m going to delve into some of the latter … and a few arc that aren’t exactly new anymore. Below check out a list of mostly backlist, mostly fantasy weekend.
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.
