This week I'm listening to Darkness, Be My Friend, the fourth novel in Marsden's Tomorrow series. (I reviewed the second and third books earlier this year.) If you are unfamiliar with the series, the general premise is that Australia has been invaded by enemy forces, and a group of teenagers must find a way to survive and to help their families and country. I'm just about halfway through Darkness, and Marsden has stayed true to the earlier novels: an amazing combination of adrenaline-pumping action and realistic character development and introspection. I can't say enough about these books.
The Tea. Fall is in the air, and I'm drinking one of my seasonal favorites: Stash Tea's Decaf Pumpkin Spice, which the company describes as "A delicious blend of naturally decaffeinated black teas and natural pumpkin spice flavor combines with nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and clove." It's really yummy and perfect for fall.
The Assessment. Ellie and gang are living in war zone. They miss tea and would drink whatever flavor they could find. But I'm going to say that before the war, the kids would have liked pumpkin spice tea in the afternoon when doing homework or after finishing their chores.
What are you reading or listening to this week? I love an Australian setting, can you recommend some titles I should add to my wish list?
Thursday Tea is hosted by Anastasia at Birdbrain(ed) Book Blog. Here's how it works: Tell us what tea you are drinking (and if you like it). And then tell us what book are you reading (and if you like it). Finally, tell us if they go together.
