I was scrolling through Amazon for a new book to read (even though my TBR list is forever long and continually growing by the second) and came across the Wayward Pines trilogy. I will list the books with pictures below…
Book 1: Pines
Book 2: Wayward
Book 3: The Last Town
I honestly wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about these books at first. I read them all back to back in three days this month (a book a day)! I absolutely loved them, but the ending was kind of a “what the hell, that can’t be it” type thing. I had my older sister read this series too and she had the same reaction. I am sitting at work and I receive a text that says “what? there has to be more.” Sadly, the author says he will not be making anymore.
It gives you something to think about though. I think my mind will always come back to these books. I think they’ll always cross my mind and I will always wonder what else. I like when a book can do that to you. It means it left its mark and it was memorable. Forever engraved into your mind and that’s always fun. Some books you read and just forget about and others you remember for the rest of your lives.
I am really glad that I came across these books and read them. I am also beyond excited that FOX is making a 10-episode series (event – their term for it) based off these books and it’ll be airing in May! I had no idea until I actually got to the second book and realized that it would be a special on FOX. I am really excited to see how it comes out on TV. I’m not usually a fan of movies/TV shows based off books, but I do like watching them to see differences and similarities. You all should check out this trilogy and let me know what you think! 🙂
What is a trilogy that you have read? Any that are not so popular?
Goodreads description below. FYI: this is the description of the first book only. I have a feeling that if you read the first book, it’ll suck you in!
“Secret service agent Ethan Burke arrives in Wayward Pines, Idaho, with a clear mission: locate and recover two federal agents who went missing in the bucolic town one month earlier. But within minutes of his arrival, Ethan is involved in a violent accident. He comes to in a hospital, with no ID, no cell phone, and no briefcase. The medical staff seems friendly enough, but something feels…off. As the days pass, Ethan’s investigation into the disappearance of his colleagues turns up more questions than answers. Why can’t he get any phone calls through to his wife and son in the outside world? Why doesn’t anyone believe he is who he says he is? And what is the purpose of the electrified fences surrounding the town? Are they meant to keep the residents in? Or something else out? Each step closer to the truth takes Ethan further from the world he thought he knew, from the man he thought he was, until he must face a horrifying fact—he may never get out of Wayward Pines alive.”
