This book blew my mind! I picked it up during reading time in my LAnguage Arts class just because I’d forgotten my other book for the day, and this book just lept out of the pages and hooked on to me. I could barely put it down!
The Maze Runner, in my opinion, is like a phychological action-thriller. Jam-packed with monsters and secrets and huge shocks. Every chapter was more stunning than the last. By the time you get about 2/3 through it, you just have no idea what could happen next! It’s just perfect!
Is this book a movie yet? I sure hope so because I’m going to go see it next weekend if it is. I’ll also be running to the bookstore to get the sequel.
Allie is a 16-year old girl who works in a vinyl record store called Bob & Bob Records. This story talks about her summer working there. During the summer, she starts a blog and a zine, undercover, called The Vinyl Princess about music reviews and soon it’s rocketing into fame. This story also talks about her mom and how she’s starting to date again after getting a divorce with Allie’s dad. It’s pretty good, but that might just be because I’m a music junkie since I didn’t really see that much suspense in the plot. So, I would probably give it 4 out of 5 stars. I’m still putting it on my to-buy list, though.
This is a link to the actual blog if you want to check it out, but it’s a little dated; http://thevinylprincess.com/
