 * I received an ARC via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*

Morgan picks up right where she left off in The 100. Bellamy will stop at nothing to find his sister Octavia. They've been on land now for 21 days and they arent alone. When Clarke and Bellamy search for Octavia, things take a turn for the worse. Clarke seems to be the only one to connect with the "Grounders" to get answers which only leads to more questions. How far they willing to go to save Octavia and what if its already too late?

It has been over a year since I read the first book, The 100. I thought it would be difficult to get back into because I have read so many books in between, but I had no problem. Morgan does an excellent job recapturing elements from the first book. That being said, I am a big fan of the CW TV show. I've seen every episode and there are plenty of differences between the show and book to be confusing but it really wasnt. Reading Day 21, I pictured several different episodes from the first season. There are slight differences here in there with cast and character names but the hardships they face and the people they meet are very similar to the show. Reading this book is like re-watching the season from a different director.

Overall, I enjoyed book two more than the first. The writing style improved and there was more action, drama and hardships and less romance. I dont think trilogy needs romance however for Glass, it works. Also, Bellamy isnt a huge douche as he was in book one. Of all the characters, he's my least favorite and I want him to die. I'm still not a huge fan of the four points of view and would like to see at least one these characters die off in the third. (Is that bad :o) To be honest, I wasnt going to read Day 21 but I would watch the show instead. I'm glad I gave this a chance I am really interested to see direction this series will go.

have you read Day 21? What did you think of it? comment below!

  1. Ohh, I am glad that this one is better than the first (not that I've even read the first yet, but I haven't heard the best things about it). It's funny, because parts of it seem SO similar to the show, but then I am like "wait, who is that?!" or "THEY are together?!". I cannot wait for the show to come back on ;) Great review!

  2. I love the TV Show, and the series finale!! Even though I haven't read these books, I'm a little upset that they TV series has surpassed the books. It makes me not want to read them because I already know what is going to happen, but then the book could go in a different direction, so I'm really not sure. Plus, I know I would probably get annoyed with how far behind the book is while waiting for the next one, if you get what I mean. I might give the books a shot after your review though... Thanks, love the review!
