I was shopping today and founds some books that look quite interesting- especially the 7th son book. Any of you know about these two novels? How are they?

I’m back in Europe for a short while to visit family. And I enjoy finding my favorite ice tea which is actually an American sweet tea. We don’t have it in Japan so I am happy to have it again!

The Scorch Trials was a phenomial book! It is the second book of the Maze Runner series and it is as good, if not even better than the first book. I enjoyed listening to it very much. If you like Hunger Games like books, this is a series you need to check out!
Here is the story: The gladers escaped the deathly maze. Only 20 out of 50 boys survived but the peace doesn’t last long. As they were rescued and brought to safety Thomas and his friends soon find out that the creators of the Maze arranged everything to go into the second part of the experiment, the Scorch trials. The boys now must travel through a blazing hot desert, trying to survive heat, assassins, crazy zombie-like people and finding out little by little that nobody can be trusted. They meet new friends and foes and face challenges that take the lives of many and need all the courage the boys have in order to survive.
Great book! I am listening to the 3rd book in the series now: The Death Cure

Maybe this is a weird thing to post but I found this a local store and I love the scent: I usually dislike strong flowery room sprays but this one is awesome!!!!

WOW! I started listening to the Maze Runner a few weeks ago and even though I was super busy with work, I made it through quick. Maybe you have seen the movie already or maybe even read the books. The movie came out last year. I saw it first and I really liked it. So I started the book.
The Audio book was a little different than the movie, but I think the concept of the book is better than the movie. I really liked it.
Here is the Story: Thomas awakes in darkness and remembers nothing about himself or his past other than his name as he arrives in a metal box in a huge maze. He is greeted by a group of boys who suffered the same fate as him. All of them were sent into this open air prison, where they have to try to survive. Life for the group centers around the glade, where the boys work, farm, live and stay. A big maze surrounds this glade, that certain runners explore every day to find an exit. At night the massive stone walls close off the Maze to protect the boys from the hideous creatures that live and hunt in the Maze: the grievers. Thomas feels the urge to join this group of runners to figure out why he was sent here and how he can escape this nightmare. A day after Thomas’ arrival however a girl is sent to the glade in the box, holding a note saying that she will be the last one ever. From this point on the maze turns into an even bigger nightmare and drives every last one of the boys to fight or to die.
Check this book out if you like books like the Hunger Games. I would include Divergent in that but I really didn’t like the series and the Mazerunner series seems to be so much better- I’m listening to the second book Scortch Trials now and I love it!
