The-ShipThe Ship by Antonia Honeywell

This is quite different to my usual type of read but I am enjoying it. I’m about 50% through and I feel that the ship has this cult community developing and I have no idea where it’s heading….

The blurb

WELCOME TO LONDON

BUT NOT AS YOU KNOW IT

Oxford Street burned for three weeks. The British Museum is occupied by ragtag survivors. The Regent’s Park camps have been bombed. The Nazareth Act has come into force. If you can’t produce your identity card, you don’t exist.

Lalla, sixteen, has grown up sheltered from the new reality by her visionary father, Michael Paul. But now the chaos has reached their doorstep. Michael has promised to save them. His escape route is a ship big enough to save five hundred people. But only the worthy will be chosen.

Once on board, as day follows identical day, Lalla’s unease grows. Where are they going? What does her father really want?

WHAT IS THE PRICE OF SALVATION?

I recently finished reading…

DisclaimerDisclaimer by Renee Knight

I felt that the majority of this book lived up to the hype despite being quite slow in places however I was a little dissatisfied with the ending; it didn’t ring right for me but the on the whole delivers.

The blurb

When an intriguing novel appears on Catherine’s bedside table, she curls up in bed and begins to read.

But as she turns the pages she is sickened to realize the story will reveal her darkest secret.

A secret she thought no one else knew…

What’s up next?

      Worth the read but I would say don’t spend a tenner on a hardback, get a library copy or wait for the paperback!

    ‘The Ship’ sounds really interesting. Something on the back of the latest dystopian trend but with a cool origin story concept. I’m intrigued. Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday! Don’t forget to add your link for others to come exploring. 🙂

      It’s definitely that and quite out of my comfort zone. It’s managed to hold my interest so far so just hoping the ending doesn’t disappoint.
      Thanks for stopping by Sam 🙂
