It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a meme hosted by Book Journey with a children's version at Teach Mentor Texts.
Last week I finished The Scorch Trials, the second book in the Maze Runner Trilogy by James Dashner. Without getting spoilery, I liked the first book in the series better, but that's pretty typical with a trilogy. This installment was more episodic with less puzzle solving and more survivalism, both reason I didn't enjoy it quite as much.
Next I read the third and final book of the trilogy proper, The Death Cure. The first book remains my favorite. I was really disappointed by some characters' actions and wasn't able to root for them as I wanted to.
I'm currently almost halfway through the prequel to the trilogy, The Kill Order. I'm a little disappointed because so far it's not telling the story I wanted to hear. There's still time for that to develop, though, so I'm reserving my final judgement.
Next week, after finishing The Kill Order, I'll be starting on the books from the Fierce Reads Tour. First up is Of Poseidon by Anna Banks.
