In honour of this month’s release of Thunderhead, the second book in the Scythe series I decided to partake in the Kiss, Marry, Glean shenanigans. I had made a list of thirty book characters for the Not Good Enough Tag, so I decided to also use them for this!
In the world of Scythe, death has been conquered and there are people whose job it is to glean people to keep the population in check to a small degree. So instead of the classic (is it really classic? probably not) kiss, marry, kill – it will be doing kiss, marry, glean.
Without further ado, here are my victims:
Kiss: Thomas Cresswell (Stalking Jack the Ripper)
Marry: Rhysand (A Court of Thorns and Roses)
Glean: Eliza (Eliza and Her Monsters)
Sorry Eliza, but I have to marry Rhysand. I’m pretty sure the internet would be in an uproar if I did anything else – and I like Thomas’ brain, so he gets the kiss.
Kiss: Ronan Lynch (The Raven Cycle)
Marry: Magnus Bane (The Mortal Instruments)
Glean: Kitty (To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before)
Oh Kitty you’re a child and unfortunately that means you’ve been gleaned. Sorry kid.
Kiss: Kaz Brekker (Six of Crows)
Marry: Maxon (The Selection)
Glean: Apollo (Trials of Apollo)
Kiss: Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)
Marry: Leo Valdez (Heroes of Olympus)
Glean: Cath (Fangirl)
Kiss: Shazi (The Wrath and the Dawn)
Marry: Newt Scamander (Fantastic Beasts)
Glean: Emika Chen (Warcross)
Kiss: Manon (Throne of Glass)
Marry: Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles)
Glean: A.I.D.A.N. (Illuminae Files)
Kiss: Carswell Thorne (The Lunar Chronicles)
Marry: Jace WhatsHisName (The Mortal Instruments)
Glean: Iseult (Truthwitch)
Kiss: Adroma (Zenith)
Marry: Percy Jackson (Percy Jackson)
Glean: Fire (Graceling)
Kiss: Helene Aquila (An Ember in the Ashes)
Marry: Batman (Batman: Nightwalker)
Glean: Alex (Magnus Bane)
This round was impossible… I don’t even know who to choose… Agh!! I let Twitter decide this one for me.
Kiss: Hermione Granger (Harry Potter)
Marry: Will Herondale (The Infernal Devices)
Glean: Wonder Woman (Wonder Woman: Warbringer)
What did you guys think? Are you going to glean me for picking your favourite character? Have you read Scythe and fell completely in love, like me? I’d love to know what your answers would be. Let me know in the comments below!
