Out of order - The Maze Runner series

Dear diary,

I had something in mind for today's post but I don't seem to be able to put my book aside so I've decided to keep this short and tell you why I'm not my usual beauty chatty self.

I started reading this a couple weeks ago and I didn't like it at all, I found it very boring and childish (sorry guys, you'll have to excuse me as I'm not in my teens anymore, my thirties also gone forever...) but I was committed to reading the whole series to get the overall picture of what this story was about.

I loved reading The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and I looked up more dystopian books until I found a few and decided to make 2014 a dystopian themed reading year. The Divergent series by Veronica Roth kind of let me down a bit, they are ok but I feel they are targeted to a younger readership. After this I read the Eve trilogy by Anna Carey and liked it better and then I got to The Maze Runner by James Dashner.

I've seen the two Hunger Games movies and I liked the second best, I'll have to wait for the third to come out and watch them in a row to see if they are better that way. 

Although I haven't seen the Divergent movie yet, and didn't like the books, I have the feeling I will like it more than The Hunger Games.

And keeping it weird I liked The Scorch Trials better than The Maze Runner.

All the silly dialogue with amnesia is kept more natural and the story itself is more entertaining than the first book.

I just started reading The Death Cure this morning during my lunch break at work and the moment I got home and had finished making dinner I sat down at the table, switched on my E-book and continued reading where I had left off while eating my pasta dish.

I hadn't prepared any posts over the weekend but I already had an idea of what I wanted to write about this week. And then, my plans changed when, for the first time since I started blogging in August last year, I seriously thought about skipping posting today so I could continue reading.

So this is the reason why I'm currently out of order until my next post. I hope y'all are still following me on Thursday!

For the love of a good read,


  1. Ooh lots of people I know didn't like the first book, but then they liked the second and loved the last. I like you doing break posts about books; you should do some more often!

    1. Thank you, I don't like doing them as I'm awful at descriptions. I feel I always use the same adjectives over and over again. We had a subject at school when you had to read a text and discuss it: my worst grades ever! I was great at maths and science but grammar: a nightmare. I still will follow your advice because I love reading so I'll pop in a book related topic once in a while. Thanks for your good advice and blogship = blogger friendship ( just made that up, maybe it does exist already).


I love reading your comments, please feel free to express your thoughts. Thank you for visiting my blog, I really appreciate it.
