Thunderhead
Thunderhead | Neal Shusterman
Rowan and Citra take opposite stances on the morality of the Scythedom, putting them at odds, in the chilling sequel to the Printz Honor Book Scythe from New York Times bestseller Neal Shusterman, author of the Unwind dystology. The Thunderhead cannot interfere in the affairs of the Scythedom. All it can do is observe--it does not like what it sees. A year has passed since Rowan had gone off grid. Since then, he has become an urban legend, a vigilante snuffing out corrupt scythes in a trial by fire. His story is told in whispers across the continent. As Scythe Anastasia, Citra gleans with compassion and openly challenges the ideals of the "new order." But when her life is threatened and her methods questioned, it becomes clear that not everyone is open to the change. Will the Thunderhead intervene? Or will it simply watch as this perfect world begins to unravel?

I finished Hap and Leonard and now I'm reading the second book of the arc of the scythe books by Neal Shusterman, one of my favorite YA authors. Also my lovely mother's day card from my daughter as a book mark that I've used for the past few years 😂 I'll have to laminate it soon so it doesnt fall apart! Who else uses random or personal little things as book marks?📚🔖😍

Holy Cliffhanger!

I enjoyed this one probably more than the first book Scythe, and I loved that one too. Shusterman does an excellent job of making the reader think about moral issues, while delivering a fast-paced, creative story full of action.

I can't wait for the next one to see what twists he comes up with for our junior scythes.

Eos462 I have really enjoyed this series. It has its predictable moments at times, but not so much that you 2ant to slap the author. I really love the world. Do you feel its a little instalove-y though? Maybe instalove isnt the right word, because the romance definitely plays more on the backburner. I hope there is more time spend in the next one with the two MCs interacting to make it feel more natural. 2mo
Addison_Reads @Eos462 I kinda feel like the romance was just sorta tossed in, so yes, it is a bit insta-love. I'm thinking we'll get more of just the two of them in the next installment, especially considering how this one ended. I agree with you though, the world created is really well done. 2mo
Bklover Just got this one and looking forward to it! 2mo

Thunderhead is a solid story and I definitely want to know what happens after this cliffhanger, but it did not draw me in as much as the first book.

I‘m not sure why I do this to myself! How long do I have to wait for the next book??? 😳😳😵 That ending though. I was totally engrossed through the whole story. What a ride. I think I might have liked this one more than the first. They were both very good. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

TheSpineView The wait is terrible! I think I read somewhere the next book is coming in 2020. Sigh.... 3mo

Substitute teaching at a renaissance school is like my dream. When I get my teaching certificate, I am going to work my tail off to get a job here. They've spoiled me to the point where gen ed HS kids bug me. 😂 Like these kids are so independent and on task that I've been able to finish all my homework for the week, & nearly finish my book and it's not even noon. So glad I brought a second book for the rest of the day. 🤓📖

Omg this book takes like everything good from the first book and explodes it (I mean this in an epic, good way). Philosophy? Boom. Plot? Boom. Thunderhead? Boom. Scythedom? Boom. It all gets bigger and more detailed and better and more corrupt and more fascinating and more ominous and this was SUCH A GOOD SEQUEL. Like seriously people. You MUST read this series. I can‘t stress it‘s quality enough. Idk how I‘m supposed to wait for book 3 now.

Finally finished Thunderhead just now. That cliffhanger!! Honestly this book got a little sluggish in the middle for me, but the end picked up quickly and become really interesting really quick. Greyson, poor boy went through hell in this book and I only want him to be happy. Now to sit and wait to find out what happens to everyone.

Well I made it to 13 hours for the #24in48 I‘m kind of disappointed with myself with the low amount even though I felt like I was reading for forever. I tried but I‘ll have to try harder next time. I did manage to get two books finished, I don‘t know how some managed 4-5 books that seems so unreal.
I end with the start of Thunderhead, I still love Rowan, still annoyed by Citra but intrigued by newcomer Greyson. Let‘s see what happens.

Donald.Elbert I didn't even make three hours so feel proud! You did great. 7mo

That cliffhanger!!!! Cannot wait for the 3rd book in this series!! If you enjoyed the pace and flow of Scythe, you will not be disappointed with Thunderhead. I loved the added “voice” of the thunderhead in between chapters. There were more surprises in this one than the first book in my opinion. Great read and can‘t wait to come back to this futuristic world!

The second book is just as good as the first. I especially liked where the author took the story. I see so many places this could go and there were several loose ends to go forward with. Now I want more!
