Special Book Feature: The Gaia Effect by Claire Buss (plus giveaway!)

It’s only March 2017 but I’ve managed to read seven books this year. Although this volume seems little compared to frequent book readers, I would like to keep the momentum going by reading other genres as well.

The Gaia Effect

The Gaia Effect by Claire Buss


One of the books that I’ve read recently that is quite far from the usual style I dig is ‘The Gaia Effect’ by Claire Buss. This is her first novel and the journey to getting her work published is an interesting one!

But first, let me share the blurb of The Gaia Effect:

In City 42 Corporation look after you from cradle to grave. They protect you from the radiation outside the wall. They control the food, the water, the technology and most important of all, the continuation of the human race. Kira and Jed Jenkins were lucky enough to win Collection but when their friends start falling pregnant naturally, everything changes. How long has Corporation been lying to them? Is it really toxic outside the wall? As the group comes to terms with the changes in their lives they discover there is a much more powerful and ancient force at work, trying to bridge the gap between man and nature.

Interesting, right? For some reason, I was imagining two Hollywood stars playing the role of Kira and Jed. I also have a Filipino version in my head but I wouldn’t reveal who I had in mind (unless you force me..).

Paris Hilton collaborated with fellow socialite Nicole Ritchie for the reality-based show ‘The Simple Life’, which garnered positive reviews from the critics. I can say that Paris Hilton is one of the most successful reality TV stars ever.
