The Maze Runner is a book that from our childhood that we all enjoyed revisiting. We all thought that the story is compelling with a good mystery though it sometimes could have bad pacing.
Catching Fire is a really good book that improves on an already great series. With a really cool arena and some awesome characters, Catching Fire improves on The Hunger Games.
The last 80 pages are awesome, and the climax is perfectly timed. The way things open up all of the sudden is the exact shock to life The Prisoner of Azkaban needs. The smooth eventfpacing of the first 3/4 is flipped on its head by a chaotic last quarter, but it is a ton of fun.
Overall, Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption was another wonderful piece by Stephen King. The characters, the plot, the reading time, the length, everything was put into a nice little package that could be read in one sitting.
Marion Lane and the Midnight Murder was way better than what I could ever imagine. It has everything you could want for a detective novel: solid plot, great setting, loveable characters, and even wonderful diction and storytelling.
The Borrowman Cell is a a decent book with a lot of potential. With too much going on, it gets bogged down and turned into a slow read.
The second instalment in the Harry Potter series brings us back to the magical world of Hogwarts with new challenges and enemies.
Paradise Peak is a romantic novel that follows an ex-con’s journey. It is really well written with some really strong characters and beautifully described scenery. The plot is cliche, but if you can look past that, it is a good book.
If you like mystery thrillers, The Monsters We Make is the book for you. It is fantastic, with a great cast of characters, and an incredibly realistic plot. It will send shivers down your spine, making you worry about thinks outside of the novel.
If It Bleeds is a collection of 4 previously unpublished novellas written by Stephen King. All four novellas have their own little perks, but they are very quick reads, and enjoyable. “If It Bleeds” is the longest, and it contains characters from past Stephen King novels
