  1. Are you planning on watching Scorch Trials? Have you read the Maze Runner series? I would love to hear your opinion on it. It was one of the few times where I am enjoying the movies more than the books. The books were good but the movies really bring out the intensity.

    1. We are seeing it this week some time! I haven't read the books, but I think I have heard others say the movie is better. We really liked the first film and are looking forward to the second!
