Good morning gang!
Today we have another brilliant author taking part in #DesertIslandBooks! Today Susan M Wilson, author of the hotly anticipated ‘The Extinction Trials’ has agreed to be castaway! I bet she would rather be castaway than featured in her own book… it’s pretty intense!! If you’re interested, go check it out on Amazon. I suggest you buy it… it’s going to be a HIT! Go follow Susan, @susanwilsonbook!
Steph, I found this very hard which is why it took so long!
The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox by Maggie O’Farrell
Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton
The Last Town on Earth by Thomas Mullen
The Last Letter from Your Lover by Jo Jo Moyes
Across the Universe by Beth Revis
The Girl with all the Gifts by M R Carey (YESSSSSSS)
My book choices would probably change every day. Day job is nursing and the premise behind The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox reminds me so much of the some of the elderly patients in a mental health ward I came across 25 years ago. Some of them had been in hospital most of their lives and staff didn’t really know why they were there. The Last Town on Earth is an epidemic style book that appeals to my public health nursing head. Jurassic Park has always fascinated me and I continually wonder What If…..? I’m a real sci-fi freak so Across the Universe struck close to the heart.
Snack – chocolate, always chocolate. I am a chocolate addict.
Tea or coffee – always coffee. My favourite is a skinny latte with sugar free caramel. (I’m sure I can arrange that!!)
My music choices reveal my age!
Queen – Under Pressure.
Lionel Richie – Dancing on the Ceiling
Simple Minds – Alive and Kicking
Wham – Last Christmas
Luther Vandross – Never Too Much
Justin Timberlake – Can’t Stop the Feeling
Sam Smith – I’m not the only one
Tears for Fears – Everybody Wants to Rule the World
Spandau Ballet – True
Michael Jackson – Man in the Mirror
George Michael – Faith
The Script – The Man who can’t be moved
Soft Cell – Tainted Love
George Michael and Aretha Franklin – Knew you were waiting
Human League – Don’t you want me?
The one book I’d be left with is Jurassic Park because Michael Crichton is just the master, and Simple Minds Alive and Kicking. Seems fitting for a desert island!
Thank you so much Susan for agreeing to be castaway! Thanks for joining in #DesertIslandBooks! I hope you manage to stay alive and kicking!
