Book 55: The Scorch Trials

9 Jul

The Scorch Trials (Maze Runner #2) by James Dashner

I didn’t really like this book. I felt like it didn’t really flow as well as I should have. And I really didn’t like all the romance drama. It was very bleh. I want more dystopia world drama! I’m in no ways a Teresa/Thomas shipper, but Brenda just annoyed me. And now she can also talk telepathically with Thomas. eh. I did like the revelation of a group B. Girls rule, figured out the maze faster and had fewer casualties. But other than that,I don’t have really all that much to say about the sequel.

Book 42: Specials

14 May

specialsSpecials (Uglies #3)  by Scott Westerfeld

 

I love Tally as a Special. She is so bad-ass. And I much prefer the thinking sensation to be icy rather than bubbly. Shay was so cold, (which was the intent I’m sure) but she definitely made a good villainess-bestfriend. I liked Andrew’s cameo. 🙂 Zane’s death was meh. I didn’t really hard-core follow ship (Tally/Zane, Tally/David, Tally/Peris, if anything a Shay/Tally or Cory/anyone would have been interesting). I absolutely loved the rescue scenes. Shay talking to drugged Tally, priceless. Cured Dr. Cable and her quips, the best. I’m glad war was able to be avoided, so Tally does not have that on her conscience. Overall it was a good ending to a good series.

Book 40: Pretties

prettiesPretties (Uglies 2)by Scott Westerfeld

Uggggh Why are boys so stupid. David David David, if it was you lying in that bed would you want Tally to leave you behind. Gawd you had to bring the pretty card into play. But I can’t put all the blame on you, fricken Tally the two-timing Crim. And Shay! Why why why did you have to turn to the dark side, I can understand you feeling betrayed, but the Specials! Icky. What I did like in this was Croy, oh you ninja you. And Zane’s measurement of beauty, “milli-Helens” haha I’m going to start usin that.

Book 33: Uglies

I thought this was okay. I liked it and I like all the tricks Shay and Tally pulled but it didn’t quite pull me in as much as I thought that it would. But what I really want is a hoverboard and the crash bracelets. I have tried to balance on a skateboard and man was it hard, so those crash bracelets would definitely come in handy. But alas I shall continue to read and hopefully I will enjoy Pretties more.

Book 32: The Kill Order

2 Apr

thekillorderThe Kill Order (Maze Runner #0.5) by James Dashner

This is the prequel to the Maze Runner. It focuses on the teenage Mark, and his life after the flares. I liked the juxtaposition of Mark’s present circumstances, with his initial circumstances right when the flares hit(especially that he remembers those memories when he is dreaming). But I also felt that when I was reading this, Mark was not a teenager, I had to remind myself that “oh yeah he’s only seventeen.” Which is not a bad thing, considering he went through a world apocalypse, so he’s probably a bit more mature than your average seventeen year old boy. But yes good book, and am excited to continue on this Maze journey.

P.S. The cover is pretty cool, and fitting ne?
