It was a slow start, but still held my attention. The characters were being explored and the world built. Then second half took off running. I loved and hated the main characters with zest. The writing was superb. I found myself jumping emotions with each page, hopeful, hopeless, excited, sad, mad, ...

I have to be straight up about the fact that it took me several weeks to get through this book. This is not because I didn't enjoy it because I actually did quite a bit...it's just that once I put it down I didn't feel that overwhelming urge to get back into it again. ¯_(ツ)_/¯ Scythe by Neal Shu...

I highlighted like a pro with this book BUT, as a whole, it wasn't as amazing as its quotes (if that makes sense). The plot was peppered with sporadic action/horrific violence while the rest seemed like it was trying to be deep and introspective....a recipe for disaster?? NOPE, it worked! Kind of......

This book had so much potential. I thought the premise was intriguing, and I actually thought the two main characters, and side characters, were engaging. However, the story took forever to really get going, and the entire book from start to finish was very negative in nature. I could live with t...

I have a lot of mixed feelings on Skythe, its very unique and for that I liked it. Plus Neal Shusterman can definitely write. I found myself a bit bored throughout this one though. It took me several weeks to finish which is unusual. Citra and Rowan have been chosen to train to be Skythes, known ...

Shusterman is the master of taking deep profound issues and addressing them through an action packed story. Like Unwind, this book will make the reader think about matters of faith, life, and death without them even realizing it.On the surface, this is the story of a world that many people dream of....
