My Thoughts: This is the last book of the Maximum Ride series, as you can plainly see on the picture. I love the cover. It is what pushed me to read the series (there were other factors). The ending as interesting twist, in a weird way. At first, I was not liking how it was turning out but it changed direction and I was pleased with the ending. Nicely wrapped up.

My Thoughts: This is the seventh and second to last book in the Maximum Ride series. I had a harder time getting into this book for some reason. I think it was a combination of getting tired of reading a story like this and things going on in my life. I am not sure how I feel about the whole new relationship situation. I believe I am in team Fang, which I was in like the first book. Overall, exciting book. Never really have a chance to get bored, just like the other books. Oddly (or maybe not), this series is making want to do more for the environment, which I already think like that. It just makes me what to do more.

My Thoughts: I have to use weird book covers because sometimes the words get in the way. I like this one though. This is the sixth book in the series. A lot of changes happen. In the end you hope one thing is happening but its not what yo think! I did cry while reading this book, but I will not tell you where.

My Thoughts: This is the fifth book in the series. The poor kids never get a break. They experience several new things in this book, including discovering a few new abilities. The relationship between Max and Fang gets to develop more, which I wish there was much more of (I know they are only 14-ish years old, but still). There are three books left. I just wonder when or how all the craziness will end.

My Thoughts: Book four in the series. This book is roughly half the size of all the other books so far. I used my little notebook to keep better notes too. There was more character development in this one. Not as much as I would like, but still some is more than none. Some of the kids as develop new abilities, which is exciting. Also, I was able to get this one in hardback (borrowing from library, btw) ! I don’t know if the other volumes are available in hardback. There are several different covers for each books, so it is very likely. Hardback covers are just so much better.

My Thoughts: Third book in the series. This series is becoming harder and harder to review because so much happens in just one volume. I will have to make better notes. This book is exciting because there are many, many things revealed. There are, as always, battles. There is a dash of romance thrown in there as well, which is something new. Sorry for the short review!

My Thoughts: This is the second book in the Maximum Ride series. A lot of action. There were some interesting parts. The characters are still good but a certain person is making me worry and wonder. I was nervous about the lose of a couple of the characters. I am looking forward to reading the next book. At the end of this book, it says this series is a trilogy, which I know its not. I wonder what is going on.

My Thoughts: This book seems to be aimed toward a younger audience, however I still enjoy it. I like each of the main characters. I have a thing for super powers. This is the first book I have read from James Patterson, so it took a while to get used to the very short chapters. The plot is interesting. It is being told from the leader of the group, Maximum. I enjoy hearing about what are going on with the other characters though.
