The Death Cure

I finally got to read the last book in the trilogy!!!!! I literally finished it in 2 hours because I just HAD to find out how everything ended! Hopefully I don’t ruin anything in this review for those who haven’t read it yet! The book opens up with Thomas in isolation from everyone else because he apparently has the Flare…

The Scorch Trials

After reading The Maze Runner (and watching the terrible movie remake), it was agonizing to wait until I could get my hands on the sequel. I literally started it today and finished it in just a few hours – I was that riveted to it! The book takes off where the last one left off: the boys think they are…

Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry

Since this sequel gives no hints at all, I have no problem writing about it and not giving a gap between this and the giver, its prequel. This story is also set in a dystopic future but this time, it takes place in a village. Kira lives here with her mother, Katrina, who is known for her sewing and dyeing…

The Giver by Lois Lowry

When I heard the movie was coming out, I immediately rushed to the library to reread this book so that I could compare the book to the movie. Reading the book reminded me of how much I loved it. This was probably the first book I read on a dystopian(ish) society and it made a strong impression on me. So…
