The Death Cure by James Dashner - Book Review!

Image
Hello, everyone! I'm back with another fun book review! This time I'm reviewing The Death Cure by James Dashner. It's the last book of The Maze Runner series. But enough about that! Let's get on to the review!
The Death Cure is where things get interesting in this trilogy. Both the boys and the girls have made it back to WICKED, and WICKED gives them an option. They can have their memories returned or choose to live in ignorance. Thomas isn't buying it, though. He's starting to question the intentions of WICKED and if those intentions are worth hurting all of these kids. Now, they are on the run again, but this time they are determined to take down WICKED, and they'll try with some help from familiar faces.
I really enjoyed this novel, but if you know anything about my tastes, I tend to favor the final book of a series. However, for the most part, I do think that this book merits my liking of it. There was suspense and drama and new love interests and all…

The Scorch Trials by James Dashner: Book Review!

Image
Hello, everyone! I'm back with another book review! Today I'm reviewing The Scorch Trials by James Dashner. It is the second book of the of The Maze Runner trilogy. But enough about that. Let's get to the review!
The Scorch Trials starts at the safe house where those who have survived the attack and the maze are staying. They wake up one morning, Teresa is gone, and it turns out that WICKED is still playing games with these kids. They tells the kids that they have all been infected with a virus called the Flare. The only way for them to get the cure is for them to make it to a specific location by a certain time. They all know that they don't have a choice. They set out, but they don't know who to trust or what is actually real anymore. Things take a turn when a friend becomes an enemy, and the race to the cure turns into a full out war.
There are a lot of good things happening in this novel. I love the fact that while I was reading, I couldn't be a hundred …

The Maze Runner by James Dashner: Book Review!

Image
Hello, everyone! I'm back with another fun book review. This time we have The Maze Runner by James Dashner. We're starting off this dystopian series with a bang. But enough about that, let's get on with the review!
The Maze Runner tells the story of Thomas. He wakes up in a elevator one day knowing nothing except his name. He ends up in the center of a giant maze where forty other boys await him. So far, there isn't a way out of the maze, but Thomas is determined to be a maze runner and figure out how to escape. The situation turns dire when the first girl appears in the maze with a mysterious message. Now it's do or die to get out of the maze.
This is a really cool concept that I've never seen before in dystopian young adult literature. These children are brought into the center of a maze without their memories. One great thing I love about this genre is fighting the control of the authority. In this book, they don't even know who that is. They don't k…

Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters: Movie Review! (Spoiler Free)

Image
Hello, everyone! I'm back with my long awaited movie review of Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters! Now, there has been a lot of controversy surrounding this movie and the producers and the distributors and whether or not we will be getting a sequel. As always, I hope for a sequel because then you have a chance to improve the franchise (and make more money but what do I know). But enough about that! Let's get onto the review!

Now, in case you've never read the book this movie is based on, I will provide a short summary for you. This movie tells the story of two girls. One is a Moroi, a vampire who is considered good and can wield magic. The other is a Dhampir, a half vampire half human hybrid that is stronger and faster than Moroi and lives to protect the Moroi. The Moroi is Lissa who is a princess, can do strange magic, and has a enemy. Rose is the Dhampir who is determined to protect her best friend Lissa with her life. The movie tells the tale of them coming back to school …

Hello, everyone! I'm back with another fun book review! It's the final installment of the Vampire Academy series, Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead! As much as I want to congratulate myself on getting to this final post for the Vampire Academy series, we need to get down to business. Let's get on to the review!

Last Sacrifice continues right were Spirit Bound left off. Rose is being charged with Tatiana's murder. Dimitri tries staying away from Rose, and now the both of them are on the run. Rose thinks the way to solve both the troubles with court and give Lissa some say so about the new age of legal Dhampir guardians is to find the missing Dragomir. Emotions flare once Dimitri and Rose are forced together to right the wrongs of their community.

I really love this book. So many things are coming to head, and I have to say that I love how Rose and Dimitri are forced to work together. We all know that Dimitri loves Rose. He just doesn't feel that he deserves her. Seein…

Hello, everyone! I'm back with another fun book review! We're getting close to the end of the Vampire Academy Series. This review is of the fifth installment of the series by Richelle Mead. So, let's talk about Spirit Bound, and let's get on with the review!

In Spirit Bound, Rose has made it back to St. Vladimir's Academy after failing in trying to kill Dimitri. She tries to move on with her life, including graduating, starting a relationship with Adrian, and trying to rebuild her image after going rouge. Dimitri is making it difficult with his threatening love letters, and things only get worse when Rose believes she has found a way to bring Dimitri back from being a Strigoi. The only thing is that it requires help from the one and only Victor Dashkov.

There is a lot going on with this novel. Rose is trying to hold onto some kind of hope that Dimitri can come back to her. They decide to break Victor out of prison. Dimitri is constantly trying to kill Rose. Lissa …

First off, DO NOT READ THIS REVIEW IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THE FIRST THREE BOOKS OF THIS SERIES! That is in all caps because I would hate to spoil this series for anyone, but let's get down to nitty gritty of this book. This book is about Rose's journey to find Dimitri who is now a Strigoi. Her plan is to hunt him down and kill him, but will she be able to kill the one she loves? While Rose is on the other side of the world looking for Dimitri, Lissa is dealing with Rose's departure and what that means for their friendship. She's realized that Rose had a part of her life that she couldn't share with Lissa. Then new girl Avery moves to St. Vladimir's, and she has her sights set on Lissa. Everything comes to a …
