Waiting on Wednesday: Scythe by Neal Shusterman

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine

 What I'm waiting for...


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.


Why am I waiting on this book? I love Neal Shusterman so much and I'm so, so excited for this book. I'm not kidding when I say that I've been looking for giveaways of this ARC everywhere, lol. It sounds really awesome and since I love his writing, I'm sure this will be epic!
