I'm starting on the Maze Runner. I don't know if I'll read the other two. What do y'all think?

I loved the first Maze Runner! The other two I kind of lost interest in them as I read along, but they were pretty good.

I started reading A Time To Die by Nadine Brandes. It's a really good book. :)

I just finished a novel about Zimbabwe's history tilted Out of Shadows." I really fell in love with the characters and feel as if I've learned quite a bit about their country. I would recommend it, with caution to younger readers.

I love the "Grandma's Attic Series". I really like them. Anything by Arleta Richardson is excellent. Also, for the older of you, anything by the Thoenes is excellent.

Welcome, sister, to the loving Bookthief Club. That author must have an Uncle Scrooge money bin by now, that book is glued to the NYT bestseller list. The narration, the dialogue, the themes, it's amazing, isn't it?

Maximum Ride manga! *dances* I read it for the art, but some of the lines are hysterical. Which goes to prove my theory that manga is superior to all other forms of literature. I mean, if you can make MR worth reading, that is talent. (And Iggy...he makes everything better :twisted: )

So. I got the first Harry Potter book. I haven't dared open it yet. Any motivations that I should?
