Another series I managed to finish in 2016! I absolutely nailed my “finish some series” resolution from last year *high fives self*

It’s a good job I pushed myself to read this final book in the trilogy in December. I can tell I was going off the series. But more about that in a moment…

Never Fade

*All reviews I write are spoiler free* 

In my attempt to finish some of the series I’ve started, it was time to make some progress with The Darkest Minds series.

I’ve been going through this weird phase lately where I’ve been going off a lot of the books I used to love. So I felt like I needed to read this book as soon as possible, before I lose interest in the series altogether.

Did it work? Ermmm…not really.

But I’ll explain in my review.

*All reviews I write are spoiler free*

This was a REREAD for me!

I’m on a mission to finally continue this series! And that meant I needed to reread the first book, since I read it I think over two years ago and could hardly remember anything that happened. I know I didn’t HAVE to, since each book follows a different character, but I wanted to sort of kickstart my interest again. So the reread happened 😀
