Blog Tour: Things to Do Before the End of the World by Emily Barr

Hello, reader!

I’m back again with another blog tour stop for a tour hosted by The Write Reads! Today, I’ll be talking about a book that caught me off-guard, a YA thriller called Things to Do Before the End of the World by Emily Barr!

But, before I continue, I want to make sure to thank Dave @ The Write Reads, for giving me a spot on this tour and Penguin, for providing the free e-ARC in exchange for my participation. It is appreciated, as always!

Now, let’s get to my stop on this tour!


“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 . . .”
