Title Talk: Flight 8, The Maze Runner, This One Summer
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly blog meme.
This One Summer by Mariko Tamaki and Jillina Tamaki
Flight 8 by Kazu Kibuishi
The Maze Runner by James Dashner
This week in young-adult book club we read The Maze Runner. And I hated it. While I thought the characters were flat and the plotline was uninteresting, my roommate borrowed it and absolutely loved it! And she’s not the only one; my brother (a 15-year-old sophisticated reader) also adored the book.
Nearly everyone in book club shared my feelings. They hated it, too. We discussed why this book in particular attracts reluctant readers and what the mega craze is about. We were also puzzled with the highly above-average rating on Goodreads. Needless to say, despite hating the book, I can’t WAIT to see the movie!
