Review: The Kill Order is the fourth book of the Maze Runner series by James Dashner, and the events inside take place thirteen years before the beginning of Book 1.

It follows a group of people have that are trying to survive in a world ravaged by solar flares, tsunamis and whatnot which turned the everything we know in an unfavorable place at the expense of millions of lives. In this group are Mark and Trina, childhood neighbors and friends(also lovers), seasoned ex-soldiers Alec and Lana (convenient!), and other stray teenagers Darnell, the Toad, and Misty. They are living in a settlement out in the woods with other people.

Review: The Death Cure [The Maze Runner Series #3] 4/5 (2)
All , Dystopian fiction , Sci-Fi / December 28, 2017

Review: The Death Cure is the third and final book of the James Dasher‘s series The Maze Runner. Unfortunately, I cannot say it was the best one. While it did maintain the quick pace and action-packed chapters there were a few things that kind of broke my heart. But we’ll get to that in a bit.

The Death Cure plot starts with Thomas who had been kept in isolation and finally released by the ‘Rat man’ – Assistant Director Janson. Thomas and all remaining alive Gladers are offered to have their chips removed(the ones that W.I.C.K.E.D. can use to control them) and their memories destroyed. All agree save for Thomas, Minho and Newt who fully distrust W.I.C.K.E.D. and their agenda.

Review: The Scorch Trials [The Maze Runner Series #2] 5/5 (1)
All , Dystopian fiction , Sci-Fi / December 24, 2017

Review: The Scorch Trials is the second book from ‘The Maze Runner‘ series by James Dashner and if you ask me, the most intense one.

If you’re reading this then I am assuming you’ve read The Maze Runner already and you’re hungry for more. If that is not the case then be ashamed, go back in the corner with your book and start reading!

Review: The Maze Runner [The Maze Runner Series #1] 5/5 (2)
All , Dystopian fiction , Sci-Fi / December 21, 2017

Review: The Maze Runner by James Dashner is hands down one of the best and most thrilling books (and series) I’ve ever read. Filled with action, increasing tension and an amazing world building I was so immersed in Dashner’s universe that I could have just as well been part of it.

Dashner’s style and particularly his inclination for face-paced action and impossible cliffhangers at the end of almost every chapter truly made this book an undisputed page-turner.

Review: The Lie Tree 5/5 (1)
All , Children Literature , Fantasy , Mystery / December 14, 2017

Review: I stumbled upon The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge in a second-hand book store while browsing for an undervalued books to add to my never-ending home library(most books there are still waiting to be read, if you must know but that’s another story). What grabbed my attention was the weird cover and the mystery-infused summary. And that was just the tip of the iceberg.

When I first opened the book I was on the defense since I read it is a children’s book and I wanted something exciting, something deep and intelligent, something that would make my mind work rather than tell me things as they are. And thank God, or rather thank Frances Hardinge, I got all of that and more.

Review: The Mist 3/5 (2)
All , Horror , Thriller / December 7, 2017

Review: For those who don’t know, The Mist is a horror novella by the king of horror stories as they call him, Stephen King. Okay, maybe they don’t actually call him that but we have to admit that when we think of horror books the first name that comes to mind along with Lovecraft, Shelly and other personal favorites is Stephen King.

The Mist is a story about a man, David Drayton, whose life turns into a living nightmare, his worst fears coming to life when his home town, Bridgton, Maine, is drown in a bizarre, unnatural mist.
