in Non-Fiction by

For the past few decades, we have been celebrating #AmericaRecycles as a way for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to recognize our nation’s progress on recycling, making a better future for generations to come. Go green today and pick up one of these environmentally conscious reads… and don’t forget to recycle when you are done!   Silent Spring, Rachel Carson Silent Spring has come a long way, where it was first published as excerpts in 1962. The book itself changed the way we look at the environment, and actually spurred revolutionary changes in that laws that affect our air, land, and water in America today.

Lonely Planet’s ‘National Parks of America’ is the Perfect Earth Day Read

in Non-Fiction by

I consider myself very lucky to live in a country where each state is so uniquely different. Within many of our states, national treasures can be found in the form of enthralling and eclectic landscapes at our national parks. I’ve had the opportunity to visit several of them and each experience has been vastly different: Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, Dry Tortugas, Mammoth Cave, the Redwoods and Mt. Rainier. So during National Park Week (and also Earth Day), it’s no surprise that I’m currently loving the most recent Lonely Planet book on my TBR list. I can say with full confidence that after reading Lonely Planet’s National Parks of America: Experience America’s 59 National Parks (Lonely Planet, April 2016) that their experts have a…

Battle ‘Ships: The 100’s Bellarke vs. Clexa

in Fiction by

In our last Battle ‘Ships column, we tackled The Vampire Diaries, pitting Stefan/Caroline (“Steroline”) ‘shippers against Klaus/Caroline (“Klaroline”) ‘shippers. It should come as no surprise that “Klaroline” won by a landslide on our poll, proving once and for all (at least on BookTrib!) that Klaus and Caroline are meant to be. This time, we’ve picked a ‘ship with even more of a contentious fanbase: The 100. Based on a young adult series by Kass Morgan, The 100 tells the story of a future world desecrated by nuclear war, with the only survivors living on a spaceship called the Ark. But when it becomes clear that the Ark can’t sustain life much longer, 100 teenage prisoners are sent to earth to see…

Video: Missed It? Battle ‘Ships: The 100 Featuring Kass Morgan

in Fiction by

As you might already be aware, BookTrib has a new column called “Battle ‘Ships,” where we compare two relationships on a popular TV show (or book series) and let the fans engage, and vote for their favorites. With the epic return of The CW’s The 100 finally in sight (that was a long hiatus, guys) we thought it would be a fun experience for fans near and far to have Kass Morgan, author of The 100 book series, on BookTrib Live to chat with one of our staffers (who happens to be a die-hard The 100 fan). They’ll talk about the romantic entanglements (Bellarke, Clexa, Clexamy, Princess Mechanic, Kabby, really anyone and anything) in her books, as well as what’s happening on its TV counterpart.…
