For James Dashner month I have been looking for guest reviews and posts about people’s experiences reading Dashner’s books. But when Pam said she hadn’t read The Maze Runner, I asked her to write a post on why not. Without further delay, here is Pam!
Reasons why I have not read James Dashner
1. I have this thing when books are wildly popular I become afraid to read
them. I feel that there has been so much hype then probably its over hype.
2. I can’t help it. Sometimes I just look at a cover and it doesn’t speak
to me. It takes me longer to pick up these books. I recently read another
book where I disliked the cover immensely and it was one of my best reads
3. I love dystopian books. The excerpt didn’t call to me.
So there you have the reasons why I have not read James Dashner or Maze
Runner. Pretty silly reasons right? I almost passed on The Hunger Games
due to it’s popularity. That would have been a complete sin against book
blogger kind. Covers are a big deal, I know everyone says you shouldn’t
judge a book by it’s cover but come on, who doesn’t pick up the books that
speak to them? The excerpt is a tricksy thing. Sometimes it is better than
the book itself and other times it isn’t the best part and possibly you
pass on a great book.
So as of today I give you my vow to read Maze Runner in the month of
April. I will then post a review and I promise to review it immediately on
pain of death of Megan’s choosing.
I want you guys to tell me here in the comments, why should I read James
