The Maze Runner: A Review

The Maze Runner by James Dashner [A Review]

Beautiful Series

 

  IF YOU AIN’T SCARED, YOU AIN’T HUMAN.

When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He’s surrounded by strangers–boys whose memories are also gone.

NICE TO MEET YA, SHANK. WELCOME TO THE GLADE.

Outside the towering stone walls that surround the Glade is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It’s the only way out–and no one’s ever made it through alive.

Dorothy Must Die: A Review

Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

photo(1)Synopsis:

I DIDN’T ASK FOR ANY OF THIS. I DIDN’T ASK TO BE SOME KIND OF HERO.

Through these tales–hilarious and wrenching, tender and outrageous–William begins to understand his elusive father’s great feats, and his great failings.”
