Blog Tour Spotlight: Things to Do Before the End of the World

Hello, sweeties! I’m excited to be joining my very first blog tour, thanks to Dave from The Write Reads Blog Tours. To think, two months ago I didn’t even know what a blog tour was, and now I’ve joined these wonderful people in shining a light on this thriller of a YA coming-of-age story set right before the end of the world!

Title: Things to do Before the End of the World, by Emily Barr

Genre: YA, Thriller, The End of the World, Coming-of-age

Length: 368 pages

Published: the 6th of May 2021

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

About the author: Emily Barr

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.
