The Maze Runner

The Maze Runner by James Dashner

Official overview:

When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he’s not alone. When the lift’s doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade—a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls.

Just like Thomas, the Gladers don’t know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they’ve closed tight. And every 30 days a new boy has been delivered in the lift.

Thomas was expected. But the next day, a girl is sent up—the first girl to ever arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers.

Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind.


Okay, so I found this book on a blog link promising a list of books for readers who were in Hunger Games withdraw and it has lived up to its promise. I read this book in 1 and 1/2 days and immediately went out to get the 2nd book in the trilogy. It’s definitely not as overall great as the Hunger Games in my opinion but is still amazing! It is a very similar storyline to the Hunger Games but it is also written in a different style than Suzanne Collins.

Read these books…they would be a great summer vacation read!
