People who know me will say, "What took you so long?". I've comfortably shared information about the books I am currently reading through goodreads.com. Having a blog is definitely a big leap for me. The purpose of my blog is to let you know about the books I'm reading. Most of the books will be for upper elementary and middle school readers. I am currently listening to Maze Runner by James Dashner. It is on the 2010-11 Texas Lone Star Reading list. This is a book that was brought to my attention because my multiple copies in the library were always checked out by my students. I am only half way through and I can see why - it has mystery, suspense, and dystopia. The main character, Thomas, awakens in a new world called The Glade only to find that he cannot remember anything about his past.There are only boys living there. A new boy comes every 30 days just as Thomas did. The only means of escape is to find their way through a maze that surrounds The Glade and houses horrifying creatures called Grievers. Things become even more mysterious when a girl arrives in a comatose state the day after Thomas arrives. This book will appeal to readers who liked The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.
