The Maze Runner trilogy by James Dashner
So for this trilogy I decided to do the review over all three of them in one post. Simply to make it easier on me! Lol I will put no spoilers in the review.

Rating: 4/5

The Maze Runner trilogy follows a group of teens that were put into a maze with all of their memories wiped. They can remember basic things like what a tree is and how to talk however, they don't remember names, faces, or their life before entering the maze. All they remember when they wake up is their name. The maze is called the Glade and is made up of all teen boys. They must find a way to survive but also try to find a way out of the maze. When Thomas is put in the maze everything changes. The next day a girl is put in, Theresa. All hell breaks loose after that and the "Gladers" try harder than ever to find a way out of the maze.

I don't want to spoil anything so that's all I'll say about the series for now, however, that pretty much just covers the first book so definitley check out the series if you want to know more.

I loved this trilogy. I picked up the series because I'm obsessed with the movies. I was super surprised to see that the movies were drastically different from the books and yet I really enjoyed both versions.

There were parts of the series that I found to be pretty dragging which is why I only gave the series four stars however, overall I really loved this world. It's an end of the world type of series, which I don't usually enjoy so I was shocked at how much I love The Maze Runner.

The story keeps you on your toes and throws so many curve balls at you that my head was spinning. I laughed, I cried, I gasped, I loved. In the second book a slight love triangle begins and it's quite interesting how I kept switching sides of which girl I was rooting for to end up with Thomas.

While there are some things I didn't like that happened (some deaths of some great characters) all the good and bad added so much more to the story that I ended up being extremely happy with the ending.

Let me know if you've read this trilogy and what  you thought! And who you wanted Thomas to be with :) You can find me on here or @ncreads on Instagram.
