So I don't read many books. Books are in the same situation as tv shows for me. I don't consume very many, and when I do they need to really grab me.
The most recent thing I read, which was about 3 weeks ago, was The Fever Code
. It's the fifth and probably last book in the Maze Runner series. I've always really enjoyed these books. Even the fourth book which didn't have much to do with the rest of the trilogy was pretty good. Fever Code was still good, and I thoroughly enjoyed my time with it, however I have a personal gripe with it.
To me it gave me answers I didn't want, to questions I wasn't asking. The book is all about how the maze and trials were created, which is cool as an idea. But I didn't like how the book ended and how everything connected. The connections feel forced and too convenient. And the ending essentially changed how I see the rest of the books, and in a way I didn't like from a fan standpoint.
As for what the future holds, I have only two books planned. The first, which is being sent to me now, is The Girl Who Took An Eye For An Eye
. Or the TLDR answer, the fifth book of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo series. (Still too long lol). This series is weird now since it's being written by an entirely different author. The last book was the first one he did, but I actually thought he did a great job. It still felt like the rest of the series. I just always had it in the back of my mind that it was different. But I have no doubt he'll do a good job with this new one. I do wish this series would just end though. It feels a bit comical to have these same characters continuously getting into these dangerous situations.
And second, Artemis
, aka the new book from the author of The Martian. The Martian was awesome, and Artemis seems like it'll be interesting enough since it's another space setting that promises real science. So I'll be all over that when it hits in November.
Okay I'll shut up now. I doubt anybody even cares about any of these books.
