Feature & Follow

Q: Have you ever broken up with a series? If so, which one and why?

Oh my gosh, yes. Yes I have. The Maze Runner series by James Dashner. The whole series is about this boy who wakes up one day to find himself in a box that eventually opens up into the center of a maze with a bunch of other boys in a Lord of the Flies type community. They all have no idea how they got there, and they have no idea how to get out. It's another dystopian series and I'd heard really promising things about it, so I gave it a shot.

The first book was extreeemmmeelllyyyy dull (with the exception of 20 pages or so near the end), and after that, I didn't want to touch another book from the series. But a friend convinced me to check out the sequel, and it was slightly better, but still not fabulous. At that point I decided to break it off and give up on the rest of the series (even though a tiny part of me is itching to know what happened to all the characters in the final books).


  1. I love your blog! I'm following you through GFC. Thanks for following me!

    And I have yet to read The Maze Runner, but I've heard that the first book is dull from several people. :)

  2. That's always disappointing when books lack excitement and are such a drag to get through!! I've never read The Maze Runner but now I'm hesitant to pick up the series :P

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and I'm now following you via Bloglovin'!

    Happy reading!!

  3. That's so disappointing! I have book one sitting here waiting for me to find time to read it. I'm a sucker for all things dystopian. Oh well.

  4. I haven't heard of that series. I hope we could find a series that could live up our expectations, though.

  6. I've only read the first book and I agree it got really interesting towards the end, and I don't yet know if I really should bother with the second one. What do you suggest?
