NOTE: These “reviews” are as simple as it gets (and mostly for tracking purposes)! They will have a rating, first thought, narrator thought (quick), and will officially be filed 🙂  Listened for Fun (Audible) Overall Rating: 4.00 Story Rating: 3.75 Character Rating: 4.25 Audio Rating: 4.00 (not part of the overall rating) First Thought when Finished: The Harvesting is a story that grew on me over the course of the story and I am very curious as to where it is heading! Quick Thoughts: This was a Dewey’s Read-a-Thon listen and I was scared in the beginning that I had selected wrong.

I found myself tuning out for parts and coming back to find I didn’t think I missed much. I gave it 40% (which for this book is about the time to listen to a whole other book) so I think I gave it enough to decide if it was for me. It had a little too much angst (in both stories) to appeal to me. Also, I hope YA authors don’t act like the authors in this book because if so I hope to never hang out with them. I am guessing though it was an exaggerated version of authors in NY. There are plenty of great reviews for this book please go read them. The things I did like: the pacing was fantastic and the writing was tight. I have never read Scott before but […]
