Hey, (mood) readers!
Wishlist Wednesday is where I talk about a book that I have not yet read and want to add to my book collection. It doesn’t matter if it had been published before or a future release. All that matters is that I want to read it.

For this Wednesday, 7th of November, my book pick is:
Scythe by Neal Shusterman
^^^ FYI: These are affiliate links. No pressure.
Read about the book on Goodreads.
Thou shalt kill.
A world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery. Humanity has conquered all those things, and has even conquered death. Now scythes are the only ones who can end life—and they are commanded to do so, in order to keep the size of the population under control.
Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice to a scythe—a role that neither wants. These teens must master the “art” of taking life, knowing that the consequence of failure could mean losing their own.
Why Do I Want to Read This?
Look at that blurb and tell me you are not enticed. Hard, right? This has been on my Want To Read shelf on Goodreads for so long and this has been a part of my wishlist for a similarly long time. I know everyone is excited about The Toll but I have not even read the first one yet, as usual. Oops. Hope to find a copy of this on my local bookstore or my favorite secondhand shop.
