The Death Cure


The Death Cure
by James Dashner

I was really afraid that I was going to be disappointed by the ending of this series but I actually liked how it ended. I was worried because I just couldn't tell where he was going with this story based on the last two books.

I will admit that I kept hoping Thomas would get his memory back so that I could have a little better understanding of who Wicked was and what they were trying to do. That never happened but he did give us a couple glimpses into the past through his dreams. Plus the epilogue really helped me to finally fully understand what was happening the entire time.

Overall I thought this was an interesting read and now I'm excited to watch the Maze Runner movie to see how they compare.

The Blood of Olympus


The Blood of Olympus
by Rick Riordan

This is book 5 in the Heroes of Olympus Series. I was very excited to find out how this story turned out. It took me a while to finish this book but I'm going to blame that on having to take care of a newborn and general exhaustion, which kept me from having has much time for reading.

I really liked this book. I liked the interactions between the characters and I thought that it completed the series well. I really liked learning more about some of the characters we didn't know much about before and seeing them grow. This really was a fun series. I continue to enjoy all of Rick Riordan's books.
