We’re partnering with Simon & Schuster for today’s fantastic giveaway, where one of you can take home an immortal prize pack featuring Neal Shusterman’s SCYTHE and THUNDERHEAD! The theme behind this awesome giveaway is TIME, that pesky little thing that’s forever running out.

Do you set New Year’s resolutions? Do you have any reading ones? I’m always setting a goal on Goodreads, and FOREVER failing, so I decided to go easy this year. And the good news? I’ve already read a book! I’m so proud of myself, despite the fact that many of you read a book a day. Time is just so rarely on my side, so I consider this a feat. What are your 2018 reading goals?

Alrighty! Enough of my blabbering. Here’s a little bit more about THUNDERHEAD, which hit shelves on January 9th!


Rowan and Citra take opposite stances on the morality of the Scythedom, putting them at odds, in the second novel of the chilling New York Times bestselling series from Neal Shusterman, author of the Unwind dystology.

Rowan has gone rogue, and has taken it upon himself to put the Scythedom through a trial by fire. Literally. In the year since Winter Conclave, he has gone off-grid, and has been striking out against corrupt scythes—not only in MidMerica, but across the entire continent. He is a dark folk hero now—“Scythe Lucifer”—a vigilante taking down corrupt scythes in flames.

Citra, now a junior scythe under Scythe Curie, sees the corruption and wants to help change it from the inside out, but is thwarted at every turn, and threatened by the “new order” scythes. Realizing she cannot do this alone—or even with the help of Scythe Curie and Faraday, she does the unthinkable, and risks being “deadish” so she can communicate with the Thunderhead—the only being on earth wise enough to solve the dire problems of a perfect world. But will it help solve those problems, or simply watch as perfection goes into decline?

    I read Scythe last year and I’ve been dying for Thunderhead to come out already! It was such a fascinating, well-written, and thought-provoking story. I really can’t wait to continue. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!
