Since I just bought a Kindle Fire, I decided to keep an ongoing list of books that I have stayed up way too late reading. Please feel free to leave comments with your favorites books or books that you think I might enjoy! I am always looking for something new to read.
Mile 81 by Stephen King (Short Story) – I didn’t love this story, but I didn’t hate it either. Most surprising to me, is that it’s a story about another killer car. Remember Christine and From a Buick 8? Killer cars. Mile 81 - about another killer car. I think the killer car thing has been a bit overdone. I also didn’t like the unnecessary and crude language. To me, it just takes away from the story, rather than adding to it. I did however, think that this was a creepy story that will definitely make you stop and think twice before playing good Samaritan again.
The Maze Runner (Book 1) by James Dashner –
The Maze Runner I really enjoyed a lot. If you liked The Hunger Games or Divergent, then this book is a must read. It’s pretty much the same concept – a group of teenagers thrown together in a place unfamiliar to them without any adults. But the story line is completely different. After I read this book, I started calling people shanks and looking around corners for Grievers. Well, until people starting giving me weird looks. Then I stopped.
The Scorch Trials (Book 2) by James Dashner – This book picks up right where The Maze Runner left off, and I really enjoyed this book too. You kind of feel a bit lost to why everything is happening, but I think it’s all going to tie together nicely in the last book. I hope. Because right now, I’m not sure if WICKED is good, or well, wicked.
The Death Cure (Book 3) by James Dashner – While, I liked this book, it was my least favorite of the three. It didn’t hold my attention as much as the other two. There was a lot of fighting and violence, and I’m pretty sure Minho could benefit from some anger management therapy. I am torn about how it ended too. I liked the final ending, but not the details that lead up to it, and I felt like some questions went unanswered. Watch out for those Cranks.
UR by Stephen King (Short Story) – I liked this book way better than the other short story by Stephen King, Mile 81. What’s funny about this story, is that it’s about a teacher who orders a Kindle. A special Kindle. So, your reading a creepy Kindle story on your Kindle. Weird. I just wish it was longer, I think that this was a story that would have made a great book. I was surprised with the ending. I thought that the ending would be a bit darker, not so happy. But overall, I liked it and it was a quick, easy, and creepy read.
The Secret Life Of Cee Cee Wilkes by Diane Chamberlain
150 Pounds by Kate Rockland – Meh. I had high hopes for this book, and I was let down. I didn’t like it. The characters weren’t relatable and were too extreme. I don’t think that it portrayed bloggers correctly. Everything that the two main characters did was to the extreme. There was so moderation or room to grow. The characters did change for the better by the end of the book, but it wasn’t believable. It was an easy read, which was nice, but not my cup of tea.
Celebrity in Death by J.D. Robb – J.D. Robb is a pseudonym for Nora Roberts. I love Nora Roberts, and I love the “In Death” series that she writes as J.D. Robb. You can read each book seperately and still understand, but it’s better to read the series in order. I really like Celebrity in Death, and thought that it had a good story line. There wasn’t too much crazy stuff going on with Eve and Roarke, which was nice because sometimes a lot of happenings are jammed into each book. I can’t wait for the next “In Death” book.
