Arc of the Scythe #1
Scythe was one of the books that I had added to my Goodreads “to read” shelf, solely based on the striking cover. (surprise, surprise I know) It draws me in; I am entranced by the colors. I didn’t even know what it was about really, when I ventured into Barnes & Noble on Black Friday last year. My parents were with me, which is embarrassing enough since no one needs to see how I obsessively pet and inspect a book before purchasing it. Watching that is like watching an archeologist unearth a dinosaur bone. (Probably not the best analogy, but go with me here.)
Well, B&N had signed copies of Scythe as part of their Black Friday promotion, and after wandering over and picking it up for the fourth time, my dad was finally fed up with following me around and demanded I “give it here, I am getting it for you.” So, thanks dad, this was a great book to end 2016 on!
