Open Letter: To The Next Occupier

To the Next Occupier,

This is tough to write which is weird because you are never going to read this. I mean you might but let's face it it's unlikely. You might be wondering why I am writing this? This isn't to you, this is to those who are actually reading this. Well at the beginning of this month. I graduated. From my degree from somewhere, I have spent the last three years of my life. But the thing is that I spent two years of my life in this house. Now your house. It wasn't perfect but let's be real what is. I thought that this could somehow be a self-help to you on how to live in that house but I think that this is for me and let's be real you will figure it out. A chapter of my life has literally ended. Two years of my life were spent in that house but so much happened there and I know that by writing this it might help. 

So let me begin by saying this was not what I was going to write today. Every time I see this in my drafts, I think No way, I think I ki…

Number 1: The characters

So this is mainly for Tyler who is just a great character who is well developed and is someone that you can see grows throughout the novel. This may not be a good thing for Tyler's character but seeing the consequences of the actions is just so interesting to see. This is partly because it is set over two periods, one set in 5 years …

Two Reviews: Scythe by Neal Shusterman and The Wonder Of Us by Kim Culbertson

*I am reviewing this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own. *
Title: Scythe Author: Neal Shusterman  Publisher: Walker Books Source: Publisher Rating: 4.5/5 stars
(Amazon|Goodreads)

Book Summary:

A dark, gripping and witty thriller in which the only thing humanity has control over is death.

In a world where disease, war and crime have been eliminated, the only way to die is to be randomly killed ("gleaned") by professional scythes. Citra and Rowan are teenagers who have been selected to be scythes' apprentices, and despite wanting nothing to do with the vocation, they must learn the art of killing and understand the necessity of what they do.

Only one of them will be chosen as a scythe's apprentice and as Citra and Rowan come up against a terrifyingly corrupt Scythedom, it becomes clear that the winning apprentice's first task will be to glean the loser.
