It's Monday, What Am I Reading?

Well, actually it's Tuesday, but who's really counting anyways, right?

The Maze Runner (Maze Runner Series #1)Title: The Maze Runner.
Author: James Dashner.

"When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he’s not alone. When the lift’s doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade—a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls. Just like Thomas, the Gladers don’t know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they’ve closed tight. And every thirty days a new boy has been delivered in the lift. Thomas was expected. But the next day, a girl is sent up—the first girl to ever arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers. Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind."

My Thoughts:

Currently I'm right at the part when the girl appears just one day after Thomas just appeared, and their trying to figure out what's wrong with her, why she's here just one day after another newbie showed up (usually there's only one new person a month, and its always a boy), and what the note she was holding could mean and change things.

I've been told that this book is similar to the Hunger Games in a few ways, and as far as I've read it is. Teenagers are trapped in this land, needing to play and win at this game, to be able to escape and save themselves. I'm really liking it so far, and I'm excited to see what Jame Dashner and his series has in store for me!

  1. My cousin has been hounding me to read it because of the Hunger Game similarities. Can't wait to hear your thoughts!
