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...

It seems that this is the week where things that bother me come to the surface. Those things may seem silly to you, but they aren't to me. Since we're on Fanpop, I'll talk about what bugs me on here. Fanpop 4, you can stop reading. It has nothing to do with the site itself. It bugs me that I'm doing effort for fanpop users spots, while they won't do anything in return. Sure, some of you give props, but at some point that's not enough anymore. I help keep your spots active. Who's keeping my spot active? Me, and my best friend. And that's it. I asked one of you to post their images on my spot....
My first thought when I wake up goes to you
Just another day I have to get through
And I know I’m overreacting
And I know there are worse things
But right now I feel like I’ve lost the only thing I knew
It’s like nothing I’ve ever felt before
And though I want it to stop, I keep asking for more
Guess I rather wallow in hurt, instead of moving on
‘Cause I know the pain, the drama, the tragedy
The tears and the misery
Was worth it all
