The Lightbearers Book Tag

I am so excited to share a brand new book tag I created that is inspired by London Shah’s debut novel, THE LIGHT AT THE BOTTOM OF THE WORLD. I have been anticipating this book ever since it’s announcement and feel incredibly lucky that I was able to read an early copy of it.

THE LIGHT AT THE BOTTOM OF THE WORLD is a YA sci-fi set in the future when Earth is submerged under water. British-Muslim Leyla McQueen, a champion submersible racer, is on a dangerous quest to rescue her father from the clutches of a shadowy organization with extreme ideology and methods. With its immersive setting, high-stakes plot, and compelling characters, THE LIGHT AT THE BOTTOM OF THE WORLD needs to jump to the top of your TBR pile!

The prompts for the book tag are adapted from the different elements present in THE LIGHT AT THE BOTTOM OF THE WORLD. Hopefully, this will help motivate y’all to read it! The book tag can be completed/shared on all social media platforms. Be sure to use #TheLightbearers and tag @perusingya when you share on Twitter and Instagram, and link back to YA Book Corner when you post on your blog.
