Maze Runner Review

Hello reader,
So, a few weeks ago my friends and I went to see The Maze Runner movie and we loved it. So, I couldn't help but read the book. Well, it was even better than the movie.So here's what I think about it:
Firstly, the book is waayy different from the movie because it is filled with so many details that make
it so fun to read.It features the adventures of a group of teens stuck in maze filled with creatures of the dark and how they embark on the seemingly impossible mission to get out of there.It is a quite fast paced book and the plot just keeps thickening as each chapter gets over.Even after watching the movie, I found the book filled with suspense and twists.The characters also seem to have their very own vocabulary which feels annoying in the beginning but you get used to it after a while.Thomas'(the protagonist) feelings and fears have been expressed very well and the other characters also have distinct personalities.On the whole, is filled with adventure, mystery and suspense and once the book ends, you just become even more eager to read the next one.
So, run and grab the book and then start reading it!It's definitely more fun than watching the movie.
If you have done both, share your experience with us in the comments!
Till then Read, Write and Relish!!

Blood of Olympus Review

Hello reader,
I've been busy reading lately.So after a year long wait, I finally finished Blood of Olympus-the last book of The Heroes of Olympus.As usual, most Percy Jackson fans must have finished reading this but for those who haven't, here's the review:
The books starts of a little after the end of House of Hades.The seven demigods have to face a large number of obstacles as they try to reach Athens to stop Gaia before the Feast of Spes. On the other hand, war is raging between the two demigod camps and it is up to Reyna, Nico and Coach Hedge to deliver the Athena Parthenos to camp Half-Blood to stop the war and unite the gods.The book shifts between Jason, Piper, Leo,Reyna and Nico's P.O.V.There is a lot of character development for them but unfortunately very little of Percy and Annabeth is seen in the book.The book does have many plot twists but it seemed predictable in a few places due to the subtle hints across the series.The humor is much more developed and does not seem out of place anymore.Overall, it is a fitting end to the series and honestly, it couldn't have been any better(though I wish it was longer!!).
So if you haven't read it yet, please go ahead and read it while I go ponder upon what the epilogue could have been (if there was one)
If you have read it, tell us what you feel about it in the comments below.
Till then, Read, Write and Relish!!
