They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera is a style of writing that I've never seen before.
Initially, I thought that the title giving away the ending would make it difficult to stay interested in
the plot. But, I was proven very wrong. This book takes you through a roller coaster of emotions
as it jumps through lots of action and adventure with the main characters. The whole time you're
reading it feels like there's a ticking clock counting down until the end, and as you get closer the

This adventure fiction book by Adam Silvera was definitely one of the best books I have ever
read. It all begins when two total strangers get a call from Death Cast saying they are going to
die in the next 24 hours. Both download an app that finds them a best friend to live out the last
hours of their life. They set out on a mission to live a lifetime in one day together. This is a
wonderful book told by many different perspectives that merge into one plot for one amazing
book

We really don’t know what the afterlife is like. Each religion has their belief and there are
stories of people who have caught a glimpse, but we never truly know for ourselves until we
experience it. In Matt Haig’s The Midnight Library the reader is offered another possibility: what
if there is a space between life and death where you have the chance to experience a turn you
didn’t take or an opportunity you missed? Starting with a list of regrets, you get to experience

Scythe brings you to the future where everything is perfect, and humans have surpassed death, and reached a point of immortality. The Thunderhead, an AI that controls the functions of government and civilization, only stays separate from the Sycthedom. The Scythes are the only way that people die, since being “deadish” is a stage that lasts at most a couple days. Two teenagers, Citra and Rowan, are brought together under an apprenticeship of a highly respected scythe and trained to become the killers of society.
