Book of the Week
Crashland, by Sean Williams: Is the second in a trilogy of futuristic teen reads, set in a time and space that is very different to our own. The main player is a tenacious seventeen year old gal called Claire Hill, who claims to be real. She has to claim this because she lives in a world of clones. It is a complicated world, filled with complicated things but as long as you stick with the main character you will be able to see your way through. There is a little love, there is a lot of technology and heaps of action. Just as you need to know more, it ends. These books have to be read fast and furiously, but they raise deep questions that the world and especially teens are grappling with, so you will think about the issues long after you have read them. Despite being part of a trilogy, the book can be read as a stand-alone.
Crashland was given to us for review purposes by Penguin books South Africa, we were not paid for this review and the opinions expressed are our own.
That’s us… Hope your weekend has been a fabulous one and we are so looking forward to another week of blogging with you all… not to mention a GiveAway or Two…

I always enjoy these “fabulous ” posts, but this week I especially loved the links about care baskets & widows – both are applicable & timely for me right now. Thank you for taking the time to share.
Enjoy your summer nights! xo
Oh Christi, Those posts were so practical and useful and there have been times when I really could have used them in the past. It is really good to know how to go alongside folk in a way that is helpful. Wishing you all the best, and thinking of you this week.
Oh, I love when you post!
The first link took me to the guy who took photos of books….but you did lead me to google hugo and elsa’s camping list — and you’re right! It’s time to go camping!
Oh Rachel, Thank you so much… I fixed the link, really thanks for pointing that out and don’t they just make it all look so glorious!!! Hope you have the best week ever!!!

Thanks Cat, I may never achieve the perfect pic of my gang… but we sure will have fun trying to get it!!! Hope you have a great week!!!
Thank you for the link to the cancer care package. I have two friends busy with Chemo at the moment and this is something that I know they will appreciate besides for the meals we take.
Hi Wendy, Isn’t that Care Package post the best, so thoughtful and so practical. It is so good to hear what folk really need, rather than what we think they need. I completely love it. And thank you for stopping by, I hope you have a fabulous day!!!
