Book Review: The Maze Runner Series by James Dashner

One of the books that’s been on my TBR pile for years was James Dashner’s dystopian trilogy, The Maze Runner. With so many books out there to read, it’s too easy to let a new series slip from your mind. Especially when you read so many series already. It wasn’t until I saw the trailer […]

Book Review: Allegiant (Divergent Book #3)

I bought Allegiant when it first came out last November, but decided to put it on my TBR pile until I could re-read the first two books in the series. It’s been two years since the last book, so many of the events were kind of spotty. I’m glad I did that. It allowed me […]

I was right and also wrong. Winter’s […]
