Gabrielle is a climate-change activist who shoots to fame when she becomes the first teenager to display a supernatural ability to grow plants from her skin. Hester is the millionaire daughter of an oil tycoon and the face of the family business. Theo comes from a long line of fishermen, but his parents are struggling to make ends meet. On the face of it, the three have very little in common. Yet when Hester and Theo join Gabrielle and legions of other teenagers around the world in developing the strange new “Greenfingers” power, it becomes clear that to use their ability for good, they’ll need to learn to work together. But in a time of widespread corruption and greed, there are plenty of profit-hungry organizations who want to use the Greenfingers for their own ends. And not everyone would like to see the Earth saved…
I am always very nosy when it comes to seeing what other people are currently reading, listening to and watching. So, to help with my own nosiness, I have started writing a monthly post in which I share what I am reading, listening to and watching. Here is this month's currently I'm...
Another month, means another book haul! Last months haul was small, this months haul is quite a bit bigger. Throughout August I hauled 14 books even though I wanted to buy an awful lot more. This haul consists of a few pre-orders, some presents for myself and some gifted to me by publishers. Here is my August book haul!
August has been a non-stop busy month for me and it has flown by. I've been to the cinema, had a few days out, a quick weekend away and started some more decoration on my house. Here is what happened in August!
The monsters have known each other their whole lives. This is their final summer before college - time to hang out, fall in love and dream about the future. Until they accidentally start a forest fire which destroys their hometown and leaves death in its wake. Desperate for the truth to remain hidden, the group make a pact of silence. But the twisted secret begins to spin out of control and when one of the friends disappears they all become suspects. We know how it starts but where does it end?
August has been long but it is has been a very busy month and I have read a lot of books. Throughout August, I have read a total of 14 books, which is incredible for me. So, I am back with another what I’ve read this month post! I have some thoughts that I wanted to share on the books I read throughout August. Here is a bunch of mini reviews for the books I read in August!
I have killed several people (some brutally, others calmly) and yet I currently languish in jail for a murder I did not commit. When I think about what I actually did, I feel somewhat sad that nobody will ever know about the complex operation that I undertook. Getting away with it is highly preferable, of course, but perhaps when I’m long gone, someone will open an old safe and find this confession. The public would reel. After all, almost nobody else in the world can possibly understand how someone, by the tender age of 28, can have calmly killed six members of her family. And then happily got on with the rest of her life, never to regret a thing.
Subject: You. Missing. Ezra Ahern wakes up one day to find his older sister, Bea, gone. No note, no sign, nothing but an email address hidden somewhere only he would find it. Ezra never expected to be left behind with their abusive stepfather and their neglectful mother - how is he supposed to navigate life without Bea? Bea Ahern already knew she needed to get as far away from home as possible. But a message in her inbox changes everything, and she finds herself alone in a new city - without Ez, without a real plan - chasing someone who might not even want to be found. As things unravel at home for Ezra, Bea confronts secrets about their past that will forever change the way they think about their family. Together and apart, broken by abuse but connected by love, this brother and sister must learn to trust themselves before they can find a way back to each other.
to do what I normally do with a book I enjoy which is pick a quote from it and get designing. So, that is exactly what I did!
I love sharing what is new on my Netgalley TBR each month. I love talking about the books I'm excited for and it makes me even more excited to read them. There have been so many incredible books on my Netgalley shelf over the years and it is a place that I've found so many new authors. Here is what's new on my Netgalley shelf / TBR!
