The 5th Wave Blog Tour: My Survival Pack, Audio Extract, Trailer and How to Win a Signed Copy!

Welcome to my stop on The 5th Wave global blog tour! The 5th Wave is not only one of my favourite books of this year but one of my new all-time favourites, so I’m really honoured to be one of the blogs from around the world selected for this tour.

First of all if The 5th Wave isn’t on your radar yet I urge you to stop what you are doing right now and check out my review here to get a better picture on what this amazing book is about and to hear my thoughts on what makes it so mind blowingly good, then when you’re done come back to this post as I have four exciting things to share with you today!

The Trailer 
Find out more about the waves that shatter our world in this trailer! 

Listen to an Audio Extract! 

What I’d Pack if I Was a Survivor 
• Books on Survival, First Aid, Plants and their Properties etc: 
Admittedly I know very little about survival in the wild, how to heal certain injuries, which plants are poisonous or good for healing etc. so I feel like these books would be vital to my survival. Plus how many characters get snuffed out over something as simple as not knowing if a plant is poisonous or how to properly dress and clean an infection? 
• As many none perishable food items and bottles of water that I can carry along with water purifying tablets. 
• My copy of The 5th Wave 
To feel less alone and for some helpful tips and tricks! 
• First Aid Kit 
• Matches
 No rubbing sticks together for me! 
• Basic hygiene supplies 
• A journal and pens 
I need to write to keep sane. And I’d like to think if my time was up somebody would find it one day and learn our history if there were any survivors. 
• Photos of my family 
• Sleeping bag, tent, blanket 
• As many knifes as I could carry
• Solar torch 
• A change of clothes and sewing kit 
• My phone 
In The 5th Wave power is gone and a phone would be useless but I’d like to keep mine in case the power ever came back on. It may be a way of contacting people I used to know when this is all over. 
• Compass and Map 

 Win One of Ten Signed Copies of The 5th Wave!
