BOOK REVIEW: THE 100 & DAY 21 by Kass Morgan

Recently Sarah and I discovered a new T.V. show…you may have heard of it: The 100??


Like us you decided to try it out. Right? Watch one episode, see how it goes and mayyyybe watch episode 2? 

What happened?

You binge watched all of season 1 in two days? Or was that just us? Man it was like CRACK! We just kept watching and watching. 

And then! We find out the show is based on BOOKS! What?

I hustled my booty to my local library and proceeded to directly to the YA section. Desperately seeking The 100. I checked out the first two books in the series and-just like with the show-tore through them!

Here’s a brief synopsis from Good Reads for both books:

In the future, humans live in city-like spaceships orbiting far above Earth's toxic atmosphere. No one knows when, or even if, the long-abandoned planet will be habitable again. But faced with dwindling resources and a growing populace, government leaders know they must reclaim their homeland... before it's too late.

Now, one hundred juvenile delinquents are being sent on a high-stakes mission to recolonize Earth. After a brutal crash landing, the teens arrive on a savagely beautiful planet they've only seen from space. Confronting the dangers of this rugged new world, they struggle to form a tentative community. But they're haunted by their past and uncertain about the future. To survive, they must learn to trust - and even love - again.

And…Day 21:

No one has set foot on Earth in centuries -- until now.

It's been 21 days since the hundred landed on Earth. They're the only humans to set foot on the planet in centuries...or so they thought. Facing an unknown enemy, Wells attempts to keep the group together. Clarke strikes out for Mount Weather, in search of other Colonists, while Bellamy is determined to rescue his sister, no matter the cost. And back on the ship, Glass faces an unthinkable choice between the love of her life and life itself.

In this pulse-pounding sequel to Kass Morgan's
The 100, secrets are revealed, beliefs are challenged, and relationships are tested. And the hundred will struggle to survive the only way they can -- together.

These books were so fun to read! And, in a lot of ways differ from the series but I loved every page. If you haven’t read these books yet I highly recommend!

Also! Just now I got an e-mail from my library and Homecoming (book 3 of the series) is patiently waiting for me at the library! Thank you universe!
