No, you didn’t mis-read the title of this blog. I, the lover of Fantasy, finally found a sci-fi book that I absolutely love. I never thought it would happen because up until now the sci-fi books I’ve read haven’t captured my attention. Turns out I was just waiting for the right one.
This week has been flying by and it’s probably to do with the fact that we have a long weekend coming up in the UK thanks to a bank holiday next Monday. I also have next Tuesday off from work, so I plan on getting a lot of reading done. Can I finish two books in one long weekend? We shall see.

This book is amazing! I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started it. I had heard some great things about it, but it has completely blown me away. Scythe is such a unique story and the world is so similar, and still so different. It is set in the future when all the world’s problems have been solved. There is no more death, hunger, poverty. Humans have achieved immortality, and the only way for their life to end is for it to be gleaned by a Scythe. The characters are all individual and we get to see what the Scythes are like and how, underneath it all, there is corruption growing. I’m over 80% of the way through this and I am hoping I can finish it tonight.
What Did You Recently Finish Reading?
I can’t tell you how sad I was that I didn’t have the fourth book when I finished Gathering Darkness. I’m obsessed with this series, the world and its characters (most of them). Things are starting to come together and plots are unfolding. There is so much treachery and I am here for it. I cannot wait to get my hands on the rest of the series, which I will probably binge read in the near future. You can check out my review here.
What Do You Think You’ll Read Next?
So far this month I have been really good and stuck to the TBR that I set for myself at the beginning of the month. Following on from Scythe I am probably going to be reading the fifth instalment of the Throne of Glass series, Empire of Storms. I have some catching up to do before the final book in the series comes out later on this year. After the events of the last book, I am excited to see what will come next for our characters. Once again, it is a humongous book and I think it’s going to take me a while to read. Wish me luck!
I am looking forward to the rest of the month and hope that I can squeeze in another two books.
