Happy Tuesday, Savvy Readers! We hope you had a fabulous long weekend! How was your family day? Did you get to spend time with your family? With friends? Or did you get some much-needed down-time? Whether you got to relax or were kept busy this weekend, we’ve got just the thing to help you get through the week! Keep reading for this week’s My Book Pledge Featured Read.
Award-winning author, Kenneth Oppel, has brought us fantastic reads like the Silverwing trilogy, Airborn, and Half Brother. Now, Oppel brings us the first in his explosive new trilogy, Bloom! If you’re like me and have loved Oppel for years, you will love this thrilling, apocalyptic sci-fi. The real potential of his plot is truly terrifying, and a great, timely read for everyone!
It was just rain. But after the downpour, odd black plants begin to shoot up. They bloom—and form Venus flytrap-like pods that swallow animals and people. They bloom and throw off toxic pollen—and feed.
Suddenly—They. Are. Everywhere. They take over fields and twine around houses. If you try to cut them down, they just grow back. The whole world is covered in them!
Strangely, three Salt Spring Island teens seem immune. Anaya, Petra and Seth each have strange allergies—and yet not to these plants. What’s their connection? What’s their secret? A week ago, they wouldn’t have thought they had one. Now they may be the key to humanity’s survival. They’d better figure it out fast—the invasion has already begun.
This first book is a can’t-put-it-down, can’t-read-it-fast-enough action-thriller trilogy that’s part Hatchet, part Alien! Perfect for fans of everything from Stranger Things to Little Shop of Horrors, Bloom is just the latest installment in Kenneth Oppel‘s incredible catalogue of books. And, good news, readers: the next two books are coming your way in Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 respectively, so you won’t have to wait long at all to fully immerse yourself in the world of Bloom. Don’t miss your chance to add this fabulous TBR to your My Book Pledge shelf today! Before it’s too late…
