Well, it was good enough for me to buy the next one! I continue to enjoy the characters, and the story keeps me interested.
I read the first one a million years ago...I think it‘s probably time for #2 🤷🏻♀️
So I found this in my basement from when I was little and found out that it makes a perfect chair for reading😂. It‘s really funny so I had to take a picture❤️📖
I absolutely can NOT wait to find out wtf happens. I need to make sure that they‘re all alive and fighting against the evil powers that be lol I can‘t wait till Ruby shows them all that she‘s stronger than they imagined. Book number 16 of my year 🥰
Going from the absolute high of TDM, this book was a total disappointment. It was all just Ruby having to deal with the consequences of her decision at the end of book one, and I always have trouble with that kind of plot. Eventually it picked back up and I was able to enjoy it a bit, but the ending of this book has absolutely DESTROYED me 😭😭😭. Hopefully book 3 will be better.
“I feel like I'm losing my damn mind, like your face has been carved into my heart, and I don't remember when, and I don't understand why, but the scar is there, and I can't get it to heal. It won't go. I can't make it fade. And you won't even look at me.”
― Alexandra Bracken, Never Fade
This took me forever to get through. Im not sure if I‘m stuck in a reading rut or if I just keep running into sequels I don‘t like, but there were times I didn‘t want to pick this up. I still want to finish the series, but if the 3rd book drags I‘m going to give up.
Day 19: Currently Reading #AugInBooks18

This is my second time reading Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken. I loved it just as much as I did the first time I read it. Ruby continues to grow, and the story went from dark to even darker. I‘m rooting for the children to win in the end. I haven‘t read the third book yet, so I‘m very excited to continue this story.
Maybe it would have been better if you had let them take me (p. 361)
Unfortunately Never Fade turned out to be another case of ‘weak-sequel-syndrome‘. I actually struggled to continue at points as the plot just felt too drawn out; I feel that a similar story could have been told with 150-200 pages less and would probably have been a lot more entertaining. This has nothing to do with the writing style itself though, because Never Fade is without doubt well written.
I thought the start of this book was kinda slow but it really picked up towards the middle and I loved the ending! I was iffy about the new characters at first but by the end I loved them. And the end ... broke my heart.
I can't wait to read the next book!

This is the second in a series where kids are falling ill to a disease called IAAN. Most die, but the ones who don't get these super powers. I don't know how I went so long without ever having heard of this series. It's fantastic and I'll be picking up the third and final installment soon.
Enjoyed this sequel to The Darkest Minds. Teens with special abilities who have been taken from their families are flung far on the map: some are on the run from the government, some work against it and some have been put to death or trained to work for it. Good action, some comedy, some young love. Definitely not deep reading, but the plot is thick and it fulfills my requirement for guilty YA reading pleasure.
Book 2 of Darkest Minds series. Ruby is now in The Children's League after making a deal for Liam's freedom. As she is pressed to use her powers more, she hates them. Sent on an op to recover Intel that was lost, she reconnects with members from her old team and learns to work with her new one.
loved this one. very fast paced and exciting. Liam is definitely a favorite character.
