The Maze Runner by James Dashner

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.

"The first book in the New York Times bestselling Maze Runner series—The Maze Runner is a modern classic, perfect for fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent."

      So I know I joined too close to make this meet up. I started this book last night and read through 16 chapters already. OMG, soooo good! I "nerded" out on my husband this morning and told him all about it. I cannot wait to see the movie as well as join my first meet up with you all in October. :o) Thanks for creating this group!

    I really like that actress as well. Also I forgot to mention, for those who like to read non ebooks, I have Frostbite, Shadowkissed, and The Last Sacrifice in the vampire academy series and Bloodlines and The Golden Lilly in the series that follows, if anyone is interested in borrowing or swapping them.

    Ok, saw The Mortal Instruments movie last night... and NOT having read the books, I really loved the movie. That actress was the one that played Snow White from Mirror Mirror and I already loved her from that movie. Having also loved the Beautiful Creatures movie... before reading the books, and finding the books even better - I am even more excited to read the Immortal series... and then the Infernal Devices series!

    Loved discussing The Maze Runner and other books and movies. Thank you, Jennifer!! P.S. I did pick up Vampire Academy's first book, The Faerie King and the Chronicles of Koa after our meeting. Now I just have to create more reading time!! Into "Matched" at the moment :)

    Great to see you all tonight! I put the Chronicles of Koa on our goodreads bookshelf. The reviews look great and it would be cool to meet the author!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
