Books I Read This Week 2017 – 04

I started my week with Scythe because my friend Amy said it was her favorite YA read last year and this book has no audio so I sat and read it and I really loved it. Shuserman is a wonderful writer and I really enjoyed the different premise of this book. The utopian take, the lack of love triangle, the few twists and turns and the fantastic ending. A really enjoyable read.

I then decided to tackle The Diviners which I’d been intending to read for two years but hadn’t managed to. This book is long and it took me quite a while to get through it. In the end, I am glad I read it but I don’t think I will read the others in the series. At least not yet.

I wanted something different after I finished the Diviners so I read The Future of Us because it was checked out on my Overdrive. It was a quick read and had some interesting ideas around how our choices, our perspectives and the trickling impact of small events.

And finally I read the The Bear and the Nightingale because it was on Amazon’s top list for January. It wasn’t as smooth and easy to get through as I thought it would be. Maybe it’s because I listened to this one when I should have read it. But it was still interesting and the language is quite lovely. If fantastical stories are your thing, you might like this one. For me, it ended up being a slog and I could have done without it.

Not as much of a range this week. YA and fantasy/science fiction heavy. We’ll see what next week brings.
