Well, day 6 is over and the final day of the Biannual Bibliothon is fast approaching…and I still have three more books I need to get through in order to achieve the ultimate goal of reading 7 books in 7 days. Of course, it will be completely alright if I don’t achieve the feat of reading that many books because I have read four books in the past few days already. That is more than I have read in a while, and for the most part, I really enjoyed what I have read!
Today I finished Scythe by Neal Shusterman for the challenge to read a predicted five star read. Right when I finished it I rushed to the computer and ordered the second book because it was SO good. The world is so intriguing and unique, and the characters are so real I had to keep reminding myself I was reading a book. Honestly though, this book was fantastic. It takes place in a world where humans have conquered everything: death, disease, poverty…really everything bad that we face in the world today. However, to keep the population in check, this world has Scythes to kill at random. This story follows two apprentices to a Scythe, Citra and Rowan, both whom do not want to bear the weight of becoming a Scythe but have no choice but to learn the ways of these killers. So, so fantastic and I am so happy to give this book a solid, well deserved 5/5 stars!
I also managed to listen to a bit more of Blue Lily Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater, but I did not manage to actually find the time to sit down and read it. I was surprised I was able to finish Scythe even, because while I started off the day being productive; reading, writing, and catching up on blog posts, I ended up feeling really sick all of the sudden. For a few hours I wasn’t able to do anything, setting me back on just about all the tasks I wanted to get done…including getting further into this book. Overall, I got about one and a half hours more listened to this book which brings me almost halfway. In the actual book I believe I am on page 150ish and things are getting interesting. Well, they were already interesting, but I am excited to sit down tomorrow and power through the last 150ish pages to see whats happens!
Anyways, that is all for this update! I am still very behind, but somehow, still hopeful as I have been saying the past few days. Tomorrow’s reading to do list is: finish Blue Lily Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater, start and finish A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab, and start and finish Legend by Marie Lu. Will I be able to get all that done tomorrow? Who knows!
