The Scorch Trials

The Scorch Trials By: James Dashner

This is the next book in the maze runner series.

Thomas, Teresa and the other glader's felt like they were finally safe with their rescuers when they were awoken by cranks (people infected with a disease called the flare) banging on the windows screaming. Thomas was shocked to find Teresa was missing and a boy named Aris had replaced her. After a few days of confusion and hunger they finally found out from an agent of W.I.C.K.E.D that their journey wasn't over. They had passed the first trial but their second trial was just about to begin and it was going to be harder, more terrifying, and confusing then the first trial in the maze.

I really enjoyed this book, you got to find out more about Thomas and WICKED and what was going on. more of the story was coming together. If you liked the hunger games then I think you'll enjoy this series.

The Chimes

The Chimes By: Charles Dickens

This was a gift from Audible for Christmas. I started it around that time, but as small as it was it took a long time for me to get through it. At first I was thinking it was another version of Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol. But after I  finished it to me it seemed more like a book to teach about the importance of not judging others because you never know what their story is.

The story is a about an old man who lives in England with his daughter Meg. He has a "vision" of goblins and spirits that live in the bells in the cathedral.

It's really hard to explain, but it has a really great message and meaning to it, in my opinion.
