My Thoughts: There was quite a bit of action in the end of this volume. I am starting to see where the anime differs from the novels. For the most part, I had an idea of what was going to happen, but it seems different. I am liking seeing what everyone is thinking.

My Thoughts: The action is getting ready to really start. I am not sure how the rest of the volumes will play out. As far as I can remember, the anime follows the light novels fairly well. So, I have a basic idea of what will happen. As in the other volumes, there is a ton more character development or maybe more understanding as some history is revealed. Pieces are coming together slowly.

My Thoughts: I have been wanting to read this light novel series since I finished the anime adaption. I found a link to a fan-translation on goodreads, and I was so excited. Nostalgia on 9th Avenue did a FANTASTIC job. I was very impressed.

Since it is a light novel (basically a novella) is short. A lot happens between the two main characters, Shion and Nezumi. Both their worlds (which are both opposites of each other) get turned completely around. The the ugly truth is slowing being revealed.

My Thoughts: Yes! My favorite character. I am also excited to see what Adam is doing. I have wanted for this novella for a while and I am sad there won’t be more the story for a while. This novella really didn’t have that much action, it was more adventurous. Still awesome.

The Last Days of Lorien by Pittacus Lore

15762770

Synopsis: As the title states, this novella (fifth in the series) goes through one person’s last days on the planet Lorien. This character has already been introduced in the main story line, and so we are able to see more of their past.

My Thoughts: I thought this novella would be told either by collective accounts or in third person. It was interesting to actually see what some Lorien was like. However, I wish there were other points of views.

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.
