My Review This is one of those books that I have had on my mental “to be read” piles for a long time.  I had heard lots of wonderful things about it, but it just took me awhile to get through my rather lengthy queue to get to it.  And now that I have read […]

My Review The Kill Order is the first prequel to The Maze Runner series, soon to be followed by The Fever Code.  This book takes place 13 years prior to the events of The Maze Runner and, although I have read many reviews that expressed disappointment because of the lack of connection between this book and the trilogy, but […]

My Review The Death Cure… the end to a series that I really enjoyed.  And I did enjoy this book, although I am still not sure how I feel about the conclusion!! I have mixed feelings, but I have to wonder if perhaps that is exactly how the author meant us to feel.  These books […]

My Review The Maze Runner had me hooked from the beginning and The Scorch Trials kept that going.  This one was non-stop action and even more of the mysteries of the world they live in are revealed. The Gladers have been told that their trials are over now, but in reality, they are just beginning.  There is no […]

My Review This is one of the few books that I read AFTER seeing the movie, the movie making me want to read it when I previously had no interest.  And I loved it and the premise of the story. The story opens with Thomas, locked in a metal box-like lift that is moving through […]

My Review Soulprint is a new sci-fi/thriller novel with an extremely fascinating premise.  It looks at the soul in an interesting way, looking at it from social and scientific viewpoints, rather than as a part of any particular spirituality.  It takes place in a world in which science has advanced to the point of being able […]

My Review I really enjoyed this novella!  There are a lot of moments in this novella that weren’t in Delirium and others that were, but we get to see them in a totally different light in Hana. Hana becomes much more of a three-dimensional character in this book.  We see much more than the fun-loving, rebellious girl […]

My Review Alex is the last of the Delirium novellas, letting us get to know Alex through his own eyes instead of through Lena’s.  Most of it told of his time in the crypts and then his escape.  It was interesting to see his character change during his time away, but it made me even less sure […]

Annabel

My Review Annabel is the story of Lena’s mother and it really gives readers of the series a little bit of insight to her.  It starts years before Lena was born and shares Annabel’s experience with the cure and her time in the crypts.  Annabel grew up as society was changing and she rebelled against […]

My Review I have such mixed opinions on this last book in the Delirium series.  I have enjoyed the series, but the pacing and story in this one seemed to stall a little bit.  And the ending… I just don’t know how I feel about it! I liked the back and forth POVs between Lena and Hana. […]
