  1. I ll admit the first chunk of this book was slow it felt like not much was happening, but those last 200 pages were GOLDEN Great finale, even though I didn t much enjoy the first section of the book.




  2. Okay, so it s officially been a week since In the Afterlight was released, and I must admit, it took me a little longer than I anticipated to finish but oh, god, when I finished it It was a little emotional Not because of anything that happened in the end necessarily this is going to be a spoiler free review for those who haven t finished , but just becauseIT S OVERand that makes me sad on so many levels that I can t even fully express my desolation Only rarely in my life has a book actually mad [...]



  3. HmmmI sat here for about an hour trying to figure out how I wanted to rate the book and what to say I m still at a loss as to how I really feel but I decided on the middle ground I liked the book well enough Anything from 3 stars and up is good enough to me I was pretty happy with the ending How to put this without spoilers I liked that there were reunions and stuff but I kind of wanted it to be a little than that I wanted people to stay together forever Geez, just read the book I was so happy [...]


  4. Once I sleep on it and think about it clearly, I finally decided to give this book a 2 stars, I really wanted to give this a higher rating because I liked the first two book, especially the second one but I just can t There will be a LOT of negative opinions on this review so if you re not up for that you might wanna stay away.The Darkest Minds.Never Fade.In the After LightHow cool that sounds for a book trilogy title sadly, the last book doesn t do justice to the title of the trilogy I m heavil [...]


  5. I am so upset that this is over This book was amazing, actually, it was like a hundred times better than amazing This book was honestly perfect and I m struggling to explain how great it is I feel so weird now that I ve finished this series because I really didn t want it to end and I know I m going to miss the characters so much I have such a hollow feeling in my chest right now because I have no idea what to do or what to read next because I really don t want to let go of these characters I ac [...]


  6. This book is so stressful and emotionally intense, but it s a great conclusion I love how everything wrapped up and my questions were answered, and it definitely brought some tears to my eyes, so bittersweet I think some parts dragged on because they pretty much stayed in the same place the whole time, and it took me a while to read, but it was worth it The characters are so wonderful and I love seeing their relationships develop Although Ruby and Liam s relationship got frustrating I still love [...]


  7. SpoilersI experienced a lot of deja vu whilst reading this, so much of it was similar to the other YA dystopia I d already read There was the usual insufferable heroine and the same old world building and dynamics between teenagers adults the evil government It wasn t all bad though, I did really enjoy most of the secondary characters and the friendships relationships between them The majority of the plot was dull, there was the typical teen heroine and her merry gang fighting to take down the e [...]



  8. Espa ol EnglishFinalmente termin este libro Aleluya Si no fuera porque en este a o le La esp a dir a que es mi peor lectura del a o hasta ahora Razones de porqu este libro se me hizo pesado de leer tengo varias, pero no los cansar , solo mencionar tres 1 Demasiado lento Literalmente solo pasa algo interesante en las primeras cien y ltimas ciento cincuenta p ginas Pudo quedar razonable con 250 o 300 p ginas.2 Tengo tantas quejas con relaci n a Ruby No entiendo porque se siente responsable por la [...]



  9. I can t breathe I can t function I am lying on my bed in a trembling ball, unable to discern individual emotions coursing through my core It s over It s really and truly over and I have no idea how to deal Liam was my perfect little sunshine, as usual And sure he had his moments where he was dark and hidden behind the clouds, but he always came out in the end Ruby is the most badass of all badass female characters to ever exist, and I absolutely adore her Chubs is forever my gangly and awkward k [...]


  10. I brought my window down, letting my free hand drift out to catch the wind.And the open road rolled out in front of us This is how a book has to end.This is how a trilogy has to end.Alexandra has, once again, left me spechless Even when I had a hard time trying to get my head around what was happening, I never doubted it was going to be amazing.The character evolved in such a great way The plot was just right and all the scenes so well put together It had the right amount of sadness, really But, [...]


  11. 5 I want a Stewart stars This is it The end.Rating a book from series we love condemns us to an extreme vigilance because let s be honest one second here I love Liam s character He stole my heart in The Darkest Minds and I could give a book 5 stars only because he s a part of it But See this That tiny but draws the line between the rating I d be willing to give to the series a whole hearted 5 stars, because these characters will stay in my heart forever and the way I could rate this last install [...]



  12. I loved the previous two books, the first one than the second, but this oneok, I ll be very, very honest.This book was so boring.There wasn t any of the excitement that the first two books had And barely any action I lost interest about halfway through the book and had to skim the rest, even though it pained me to do so.I guess part of the problem was that I barely remembered the second book And yes, that problem could have been solved easily by re reading it, but I didn t have the patience I v [...]


  13. 3,5 SterneH tte ich am Anfang nicht so Probleme im Lesefluss gehabt, h tte es auch locker 4 bekommen, aber irgendwie war mir der Anfang doch etwas zu langatmig, ohne dass wirklich etwas passiert ist Dennoch fand ich diese Phase des Buches an sich nicht unwichtig f r die Geschichte, da einige Beziehungen und Hintergr nde n her beleuchtet wurden Und die letzten 200 Seiten hab ich fast in einem Rutsch durchgesuchtet, weil es einfach nur fesselnd und grandios war, so muss Jugendfantasy Dystopie Ich [...]


  14. See reviews at YA Midnight Reads2.5 starsThe Darkest Minds was one of the first ever books I reviewed on this blog No, I m not going link it up because it s god awful and the only reason why I keep it on the blog is so I can look back and laugh at myself I really enjoyed The Darkest Minds for the brilliant characters and world that Alexandra Bracken constructed, and Never Fade was just as fantastic But, In the Afterlight seems to be a dud for me Whether this is the reading slump speaking or not [...]


  15. Full review posted on the blog mariethebookloverIf Ruby and Liam don t end up together, I will freak out So how about you just give me this book Like, now.



  16. I really hoped this book would be a lot better than the previous two books No action I ve been waiting for some kickass scenes and this book had none to offer This is the last book right Shouldn t shit be going down and there be some fights Some action Extremely long Boring characters.

  19. 4.5 stars for my 205th book of the year Ruby, what does the future look like Nico asked I see it in colors, I said A deep blue, fading into golds and reds like fire on a horizon Afterlight It s a sky that wants you to guess if the sun is about to rise or set I M DONE But seriouslywhere is the epilogue as sweet as the ending was, what happens next After the second book, I was pretty disheartened, to be honestI wasn t sure I was going to like this one I really didn t care for most of the second on [...]


  20. This has been a strange trilogy for me because I actually liked the middle book best What a rare occurrence In the Afterlight fell short of Never Fade mostly because of bad pacing Too much of the book was taken up by training, planning, angsting, and generally sitting around in dark places Of the 500 something total pages, only around 100 were occupied with real action or gripping drama The final resolution went by so fast I had to reread it for it to register, and even on my second go it still [...]


  21. Once again I m beyond incapable of writing a review My feelings are scattered, my heart is broken I can t believe I ve finished this series excluding 3.5 which I will read and I m so happy I chose to read them If anyone has read these books and wants to share feelings I m 110% in but I just want to say how I don t know how to feel about this ending I m happy but I m also sad It s a close but an open ending, which is confusing I just wanted a dang epilogue This is honestly just a ramble, maybe on [...]
