So, somewhat a little late today. Yesterday was a stressful day which ended up in a couple of hours at the hospital, however baby boy is fine, thank goodness. But yes, today’s blog post escaped my mind through the stress!
I thought I’d do a quick post to let you know what I’m currently reading, and I’d love to know what you’re reading too!
An Innocent Baby by Cathy Glass
I love Cathy’s books, and this one has me hooked already!
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…
As they navigate first love and family expectations, can the three teenagers pull off the ultimate heist and bring about a green rising?
I loved this one so much! I have loved every book written by Lauren James, and this was no exception.
I loved the storyline, and not only because it is so current (other than the magical aspects of course), but because it is so informative. It really opened my eyes to the effects of global warming.
It has really inspired me.
I loved the Greenfingers, and everything that they represent. I wish I had my own greenfinger ability! It was so cool what they managed to accomplish in such a short space of time, and from space too!
The relationship between Hester and Theo was lovely too. I liked how they made each other stronger.
This was a brilliant read, and I look forward to Lauren’s next book!
Enter the world of me, Panda, plus my sometime-friends Cat and Teddy. You will find us living our best lives, trying (and occasionally succeeding) to be kind to each other. The cat is quite nice but can be a little bit selfish. Teddy can come across as very nice, with his squeaky voice and looking so tiny and helpless. But I must warn you, Teddy can be a vicious little backstabber, actually.
This is a book of nice illustrations and some words from which you will likely gain some sort of inspiration. Like:
‘Just because you’re struggling, it doesn’t mean you’re failing… But it might do.’ ‘Nothing beats kindness,’ said the cat. ‘Gin does’, said Panda. ‘If you don’t stop saying inspirational things to me, I’m going to punch you up the hooter.’ ‘You OK, hun?’ asked Panda, but he was just taking the piss. ‘We’re just so, so lucky to have each other as friends, and it’s going to make a marvellous book.’
This was such a great read! It certainly made me smile! 😆
It was so refreshing to read something so honest and humorous.
I laughed out loud multiple times. If you want to smile then you must pick this one up.

Zero, Repeat, Forever by G.S. Prendergast
He has no voice or name, only a rank, Eighth. He doesn’t know the details of the mission, only the directives that hum in his mind: Dart the humans. Leave them where they fall. His job is to protect his Offside. Let her do the shooting. Until a human kills her…
Sixteen-year-old Raven is at summer camp when the terrifying armored Nahx invade. Isolated in the wilderness, Raven and her fellow campers can only stay put. Await rescue. Raven doesn’t like feeling helpless, but what choice does she have?
Then a Nahx kills her boyfriend.
Thrown together in a violent, unfamiliar world, Eighth and Raven should feel only hate and fear. But when Raven is injured, and Eighth deserts his unit, their survival comes to depend on trusting each other…
