I got some positive news from my publisher. They want to publish my book! Yay! Now, part of the financing happens through crowdfunding. I'm already getting quite some help from friends and family who live in my country. But maybe you guys would like to help me out too? I totally understand it if you don't want to. No hard feelings, but I have to ask. If you have paypal and you want to help, send me a message and I'll give you my emailadress that's attached to my paypal. Any amount will do. I'm sure you know how it works. And if there's anything I can do in return, don't...
Let me start by saying that I enjoyed this book much better than The Kill Order. I think my problem with The Kill Order-and I think that was also James Dashner’s problem-was the lack of familiar characters. The Maze Runner came out first and it has all these characters you connect with. After that comes The Scorch Trials and then Death Cure. James wrote these books before the Kill Order. He connected with these characters, and then he throws himself into a world where none of them are present. I could tell he wanted to get it over with and so did I.
I give this book a four! I thought it was very exciting. Lena coping with her uncle Macon’s death was heartbreaking. We are introduced to a few new characters, who are all interesting in their own way. I thought the three sisters were hilarious. The story behind Lucille Ball (obviously named after the iconic I Love Lucy star) was very well-thought, too. The visions were intruiging and Link was there to lighten things up a bit. Ridley being stripped from her powers and becoming human should be interesting for...
This book gets a 2.5 sadly. It started out very promising, but then the women get taken and from that moment on, we get trapped in some kind of loophole. Not literally, don’t get me wrong. It just feels that way, because the two male characters we are stuck with, keep finding themselves in the same situation, which gives the idea that the author had little to no inspiration and that saddens me, because I loved The Maze Runner. They did switch between present and past, which was relieving, because then we at least have some other characters around us, because having to read about two...
I give this movie a three out of five stars. I thought a lot of scenes were dull and long-winded, and whenever there was some action, it didn’t last long. Add on that certain aspects of the plot were quite predictable. I did love Jennifer Lawrence’s acting, though. I had only seen her in The Hunger Games and unlike many others I wasn’t blown away with her performance, so this was a pleasant surprise. Michael Sheen’s acting didn’t differ much from his role in Twilight, so it begs the question if he played so stiff, because he was playing a robot, or because he’s just… stiff. Any...
