The Maze Runner

I finally read it. After a few years of having people suggest it, I have finally gotten around to reading it.
It's not to say that this isn't the first time I picked up the book, I read the first chapter when it first came out, but I was in the book store and I didn't particularly like it.
Now that I finally did read it, I wish I would have stuck with it a little bit longer because I did really enjoy this book.
I did feel that there were some parts of it that were a little strange. The ending, though it left me hanging enough to make me want to read the next book, for some reason didn't sit well with me.

Anyway, I did enjoy this book when I finished it yesterday.

The Enchantress

The end. The end of one of my favorite series.
I believe it was my school librarian that got me started on the first book many years ago, and never before have I found a book that gets me so engrossed and so eager to learn more about history and the characters than The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel.
And now it has ended.
And my guess of who Marethyu was was right. That made me so happy. That made me spend an entire day reading a book (while I was on the beach) in order to see if I was right.
And that made me so happy.
The one thing that I am critical about of the series is that I don't really like Sophie and Josh. They never just struck me as normal. I guess that is because they weren't normal, but they didn't seem natural, like how twins would be, or siblings would be.

But other than that, great book. I finished it Wednesday and haven't stopped thinking of it.
