My Rating ★★★☆☆

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 thirty 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

If You Haven't Read**
I do not recommend this book series, I believe that it is way over hyped. My best advice is not to waste your time with this book and instead read some thing different like the Chaos Walking Series. The plot isn't amazing, has a very annoying main character and it has a completely predictable outcomes.  The only positive of this book is that it was a good thriller and kept me on my toes. Go see the movie instead, if it was half good try the first book but if it wasn't then don't because these are not for you.

If You Have Read** 
I'm sorry. I strongly disliked these books. Thomas was the dumbest character ever, and he never did anything that I myself would have done. He really didn't do anything remarkable and I was mainly reading it for Newt, cause he was awesome. 

The Maze Runner
This was my favorite of the series and it goes downhill from here, so if you didn't like it don't read the other books. This was the only book I liked Thomas, and I thought there would be some appeal to him in later books (more on that later) I did like the way that the Gaders escaped the maze but I kind of expected something better than Chuck fricken dying. Was that really necessary? I mean yes he woud have died one way or another throughout the series but really? The first book you kill off his (pretty much) only friend? I liked Thomas and Theresa's bond and was excited o see it grow in the future novels. Yep more on that later to. So yep, if this book was only a 3.5 or lower I wouldn't read the next book.

The Scorch Trials
So basically Im going to sum up this books review into two parts a) How I hate Thomas and b) What the heck was up with Thomas and Theresa? a) Thomas is a souless boy who could barely give a crap about people dying left right and center, the author gave me no emotion to an 11 year old boy getting killed. Thomas' emotions pissed me off a lot, I know that he was right about Theresa being untrustworthy but you would think after he first book (I thought they were falling in love) that he would at least think about her telling him about those people forcing her to do it. Ugh. b) Who the heck was Brenda? I trusted Winston (strange right?) but at first I was just like "oh whatever just a hot girl"  then I was lead to believe that "oh man! Is this a love triangle?" then, well that whole thing is kinda made clear in The Death Cure

The Death Cure
Things wrong with this book A) Thomas goes with Brenda and apparently she worked for Wicked B) There is no fricken death cure (yes this did dissapoint me) C) Newt dies. Things right with this book A) I liked the cranks in the city B) IT had an awesome climax

My Favorite Parts
Whenever Thomas talked about Newt in the first book.
