Spotlight: Things To Do Before The End of The World by Emily Barr

Hey everyone!
Today I am sharing a spotlight post for Things To Do Before The End of The World by Emily Barr, so that you can get to know a little about the book.
It was supposed to be my stop on the Ultimate Blog Tour today, but I have been so ill, and couldn’t concentrate enough to get my review written, so the wonderful Dave @ The Write Reads has agreed for me to share my review on a later date of the tour instead.

Book Blurb:

A timely and powerful coming-of-age thriller from the bestselling author of The One Memory of Flora Banks.


What would you do when you hear the news that humans have done such damage to the earth that there might only be a limited amount of safe air left – a year’s worth at most?

You’d work through your bucket list, heal rifts, do everything you’ve never been brave enough to do before?

Olivia is struggling to do any of this. What it is she truly wants to do? Who do she wants to be?

Then out of the blue comes contact from a long-lost cousin Olivia didn’t even know existed. Natasha is everything Olivia wants to be and more. And as the girls meet up for a long, hot last summer, Olivia finds Natasha’s ease and self-confidence having an effect on her.

But Natasha definitely isn’t everything she first appears to be . . .

What Others Have Had To Say About The Book:

“Libby and Natasha really captivated me into the story and It was hard not to read when all the secrets started to come out!”

Ellie Mai Blogs

“I mean I basically read it all in one sitting and I have no regrets.”

“This book is full of drama and suspense, keeping you on the edge of your seat as the story pushes forward and reaches its climax. This is without a doubt a must read for 2021 and a book I will be recommending to everyone!”

Victoria Wilks

About The Author:

“I started out working as a journalist in London, but always hankered after a quiet room and a book to write. I managed, somehow, to get commissioned to go travelling for a year, and came home with the beginnings of a novel set in the world of backpackers in Asia.

This became Backpack, a thriller which won the WH Smith New Talent Award, and I have since written eleven more novels for adults, one novella, and three book for Young Adults, published in the UK and around the world. I live in Cornwall with my husband Craig and our children.”
