The Maze Runner Series is a delightful collection of books that many people have read and thoroughly enjoyed. These books were so wonderful that producers have decided to make movies out of the series! You know books/series of books are good when movies are made from them. Let's talk a bit about the movie. So far there's been a movie made over the first two books, The Maze Runner & The Scorch Trials. The first movie opened up with almost $348.3 million at the box office. The Maze Runner movie even won three awards! The second movie, Scorch Trials wasn't quite as successful as the first, but it still did above average with $312.3 million at the box office. This movie was nominated for two awards! As you can tell, these movies were very successful which means that the books have to be pretty good!

This series is very action packed.
Every single time you turn the page in this fast-paced series you are guaranteed to read something unexpected or jaw-dropping. There are so many twists and turns and unexpected events that happen you just begin to expect the unexpected. These books will never fail to keep you interested and looking forward to read the next few pages. "I found myself constantly thinking about Thomas and his adventures in the most inappropriate times; for example, while I was pretending to listen to my teacher Ms. McGehee I would just continually drift off into daydream land with my pal Thomas," is what a very bright book reviewer by the name of Luke Mieska said. I can quite honestly say that I would get really upset when someone died or something else earth-shattering happened. What I'm trying to say is that if you want to read some books that will never bore you, come on over and read The Maze Runner Series.
