Today, I get to share quite an exciting mood board I created for the blog tor of the amazing The Extinction Trials by S.M.Wilson
“Betrayal. Sacrifice. Survival.
Welcome to the Extinction Trials.
In Stormchaser and Lincoln’s ruined world, the only way to survive is to risk everything. To face a contest more dangerous than anyone can imagine. And they will do anything to win.
But in a land full of monsters – human and reptilian – they can’t afford to trust anyone. Perhaps not even each other…”
My full review of this incredible book will be up in a few weeks time, but today I get to share my moodboard and talk you through my choices. If you haven’t read this book yet then you absolutely need to. It is exceptional. If you don’t believe me, go check out some of the other stop on the blog tour and see what they’ve got up to!
Extinction Trials: mood board
I think my moodboard captures this book, or at least my imagining of the book, really well. I tried to capture scenery most prominently as this was the thing that stood out most for me. The amazing scenery and the characters of this book make this an interesting and deepening book – their relationships with each other, and their emotions towards each other complicate everything!. From climbing treacherous cliffs to prove bravery and ability, to wide open land with the threat of dinosaurs, to actual threat of dinosaurs, I’ve tried to capture the essence of this book in my mood board. I could’ve gone on with this mood board for pictures and pictures, but I definitely am happy with the finished result.
I’d love to know what you would include in your mood board! Let me know in the comments. This book is brilliant and I implore all of you to read it!
If you have already read it and would love to know more about the second book, check out #SundayYA this Sunday as Susan is the guest of honour talking about book 1 and revealing the cover and title of book 2.
If that’s still not enough, if you sign up to Usborne’s YA newsletter you can get a sneak peek at the first chapter of book 2. I know I can’t wait! Sign up here.
Thank you so much Usborne (especially Stevie) for letting me join this amazing blog tour! Check out the rest of the stops on the blog tour and join us on Sunday for #SundayYA Extinction Trials!
