Scythe
Scythe | Neal Shusterman
Two teens are forced to murder maybe each other in the first in a chilling new series from Neal Shusterman, author of the "New York Times" bestselling Unwind dystology. In a world where disease has been eliminated, the only way to die is to be randomly killed ( gleaned ) by professional reapers ( scythes ). Citra and Rowan are teenagers who have been selected to be scythe s apprentices, and despite wanting nothing to do with the vocation they must learn the art of killing and come to understand the necessity of what they do. Only one of them will be chosen as a scythe s apprentice. And when it becomes clear that the winning apprentice s first task will be to glean the loser, Citra and Rowan are pitted against one another in a fight for their lives."

I loved the world building and the philosophical thoughts in the diary pieces. The second half of the story was predictable but I still enjoyed it. After finishing I immediately downloaded the 2nd audiobook.

Lovesbooks87 This is not something that I normally read but I inhaled both of these books and hate that I have to wait until November for the last one to come out! 1mo

Had to snap this quickly while Radar was looking. He‘s not a lap cat but will hang next to me and chill. Really enjoying this book after a few duds. I am torn between Litsy-ing or reading though. I can‘t watch the last GoT episodes right away and habe to stay off social media for the next two weeks. 😱

I've been listening to this one with my 13yr old and it's taken us a while to finish, but that isn't because the book wasn't compelling. Our time in the car together these last few months was rare. We were both on pins and needles as the main characters finally made it to winter conclave. This was an awesome ride of a book. ☆☆☆☆☆ I've already bought book 2!

Just finished this and it was pretty good. Was not expecting that ending at all. I like the concept of the book and about how they handle the idea of how everyone has different ideas about death. In this world only a scythe can kill and all of them have their own unique way of dealing with it. I can only hope our future isn‘t like this.

Listen folks, it‘s a YA series and I ploweddddd through the first two books. It‘s a great, fast read and such an interesting concept. Highly recommend if you want a fun, engaging read . Disappointed that the third book of the series isn‘t on audible... ⛏ #arcofthescythe #YA #Scythe

Great YA book! I'm a huge fan now and must get to the library asap to get the sequel. ?

The setting is a dystopian world where death can not occur naturally, so some people are chosen as Scythes to "glean" others. It raises so many ethical and moral questions, but it's wrapped up in an exciting story so at first you don't realize what you're absorbing.

I'm excited to read the next one. ?

Starting all these today. I try to keep a book, graphic novel, and an audiobook all going at the same time.

Queen of the Air is my current audiobook and it hasn't been reviewed on Litsy yet. I love anything circus related, so I'm excited to read it.

I've heard so many great things about Scythe. I'm 80 pages in and enjoying it so far.

I haven't started March yet. It's been on my TBR for several months.

Anyone read any of these?

Klou I haven't, but Scythe is on my radar. Enjoy! 4mo

Does anyone ever find that writing reviews for your favourite books is the hardest? How can you be expected to sum up every reason that you love them in 450 characters or less? I‘ve been putting off writing this review for DAYS because I just can‘t do it justice. It is SO good. It makes you think about things like what would happen if we achieved everything we wanted, or what does it mean to be human, but it ALSO has a fantastic plot. PLS READ IT.

TheBookKeepers Right!!!! The Litsy character limit really challenges me to get creative with my reviews lol!!! The struggle is real! I loved this book too!! 5mo

I love this book! I just reread it with my high school book club, and I got so much more out of it when talking with the students. Morality, mortality, deciding for yourself what you believe...Shusterman creates a story that makes readers question their own beliefs in a way that is thoughtful, as well as engaging. My students have really enjoyed our discussions about it so far. And although it is a young adult novel, everyone will enjoy it.
