The Finisher

by David Baldacci

The finisher : a novel

Young Vega Jane lives in a confined world called Wormwood. Past its boarders lies a great unknown filled with horrors and nightmares. After one of her colleagues vanishes into the unknown, Vega is left with hints of where he might of gone and of the mysteries that lie outside of Wormwood.

I was a bit hesitant about this book at first but after I got past the first couple of chapters, I was hooked. The plot is similar to some novels but it is delivered in a unique way that doesn't make it sound repetitive.

I would definitely recommend it to anyone that loves stories with rebellion and mystery. I would recommend it to those who are fans of The Maze Runner by James Dashner because it reminds me so much of it.

Paper Towns

by John Green

Paper towns

I read this book for the first time last summer. I was living in Italy for half a year when I came across a small book store. John Greens Paper Towns was the only book they had in English. In middle school I had read The Fault in Our Stars and I remember 13 year old me being gutted by Greens writing. So with all of these factors, I bought the book. I took with me on a train ride from the city I was living in, Turin, to Rome. The train ride was 4 hours long and I read the whole book front to back. The entire time I was gaining respect for Margo Roth Spiegelman and admiration for Quentin. 

This book kept me planted on the edge of my seat. I found my self in the character Margo. She did only what I've dreamt of. running away. just escaping my very own paper town. Green writes about this surreal moment between the two main characters. they are looking over their town. Margo refers to it as a Paper Towns and although I read this many moons ago, that moment stays with me. I highly highly recommend this book.
