Serial Posting

So, it's been a while, and there have been a lot of books that have been finished. I'm pretty consistent about reviewing them on Goodreads, but I haven't posted them here. Until now. Now I'm going to serial post all of those reviews here so that my blog starts to look back to normal.

Also coming today are pages with the reviews in alphabetical order by book title and by author last name. These posts will take some time, but in the end, everything will be up to date.

The Maze Runner

This book was a little weird, but it quickly sucked me in, even being an audiobook.

Thomas wakes up in a box - an elevator - and has no memories other than his name. He enters the Glade, in the middle of a giant maze, and has no idea why he's there or what's happening.

What do they have to do? Solve the maze. Sounds simple. Except it's not. The boys have been there for two years, running in the maze everyday, and the maze remained unsolved.

It's a dystopia where you spend almost the entire book not really knowing what happened on Earth that resulted in the creation of the maze.

The end of the book explains what happened, why they'e in the maze, and leaves you with a desire to know what happens next.

Mr. Maybe

This was a fluffy little book. Libby is looking for her Mr. Right. She has a list of what she wants in a dream man - rich, great sex, someone that she finds attractive, someone who wants to get married.

Unfortunately, she can't seem to find all of those properties in one man. One the one hand, she has Nick. Great in bed and attractive, but broke and not ready for commitment. Libby falls for him so hard that she get almost frustrated. She hates his friends, she hates that he has no money, but she wants to be with him.

He dumps her.

She's heartbroken until she meets Ed. He's stinking rich and wants to get married. Unfortunately he has an unattractive mustache, he's ridiculously boring, and terrible in bed.

She ends up having to make a choice between the fairy tale life as a rich man's wife and being happy and in love no matter what the bank account balance is.

Just a fluffy read after some rather deep reads that I've had lately.
