Hello Ink Drinkers, and welcome to my leg of Turn the Page Tours edition for Gleaning by Neal Shusterman. I would like to thank Simon and Schuster for a physical ARC and a finished copy of this book. If you would like to purchase a copy of this book you can do so here.
The New York Times bestselling Arc of the Scythe series continues with thrilling stories that span the timeline. Storylines continue. Origin stories are revealed. And new Scythes emerge!
There are still countless tales of the Scythedom to tell. Centuries passed between the Thunderhead cradling humanity and Scythe Goddard trying to turn it upside down. For years humans lived in a world without hunger, disease, or death with Scythes as the living instruments of population control.
Neal Shusterman—along with collaborators David Yoon, Jarrod Shusterman, Sofía Lapuente, Michael H. Payne, Michelle Knowlden, and Joelle Shusterman—returns to the world throughout the timeline of the Arc of a Scythe series. Discover secrets and histories of characters you’ve followed for three volumes and meet new heroes, new foes, and some figures in between.
Gleanings shows just how expansive, terrifying, and thrilling the world that began with the Printz Honor–winning Scythe truly is.
Not going to lie, it took me so long to jump on the Arc of the Scythe bandwagon. But when I did.. I binge read the series in two and a half days. So when I saw there was an anthology being written about the world I had to jump at the opportunity and I was so fortunate to be picked.
This book has a little something for everyone, but it should be read after the series to fully grasp what’s going on. There are many stories going on — some set before, during and after the setting of the storyline. The stories are not in any type of order but they have a great flow. Some stories are a bit weird, some are on the slower side, but overall the book is giving all the feels. (Im)patiently waiting for the audiobook to come out to experience it all over again.
