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.

It's been 21 days since The 100 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.
A brilliant and captivating sequel to The 100! I love the cover, I am never usually a fun of TV series/movie covers however this is certainly an exception (except that permanent sticker!).

100 prisoners are sent down to Earth, on a quest to determine whether Earth is now survivable. Relationships are tested, friendships are tested and trust is tested. But soon these are the least of their worries as they find out they are not alone. In the sequel, you follow The 100's quest to find Octavia and how they are learning to survive alongside controlling their fear of the Earthborns, whilst in the sky Glass and Luke need to make their choices and fast, as the Arc begins to lose oxygen.

I loved seeing the continuation of the different perspectives of our main characters, Morgan does it perfectly as at not one stage did it become confusing as to who was who. I was ecstatic to see an improvement of Clarke's character in Day 21, she appeared less selfish and tried her hardest to do what she thought what was right; she fought for The 100. Bellamy was as amazing as ever, he was protective of others and did not give up until he had what he wanted. Alongside this he was compassionate, and we were able to see a different side to Bellamy as we gained an insight into his past. Then we have Glass and Luke, I am still not sure what to think of Glass. At one point she seems completely unselfish, and then the next she seems the opposite. In comparison to Luke who is lovely and caring, and would do anything for Glass.

The plot of Day 21 was engaging and had a few edge-of-your-seat moments. There were raging arguments and secrets spilled, alongside new adorable friendships. Additionally you also get to learn more of the history of the Arc and Earth, answering some of your unsaid questions along the way. The scenes on the Arc will definitely pull at your heart strings with the dark truth of peoples desperation for survival, and to what extent they will go to for it.

This is definitely my favourite novel in The Hundred series so far, and I cannot wait for the sequel: Homecoming.

When Gia Montgomery's boyfriend, Bradley, dumps her in the parking lot of her high school prom, she has to think fast. After all, she'd been telling her friends about him for months now. This was supposed to be the night she proved he existed. So when she sees a cute guy waiting to pick up his sister, she enlists his help. The task is simple: be her fill-in boyfriend—two hours, zero commitment, a few white lies. After that, she can win back the real Bradley.
The problem is that days after prom, it's not the real Bradley she's thinking about, but the stand-in. The one whose name she doesn't even know. But tracking him down doesn't mean they're done faking a relationship. Gia owes him a favor and his sister intends to see that he collects: his ex-girlfriend's graduation party—three hours, zero commitment, a few white lies.
Just when Gia begins to wonder if she could turn h…

Maddie Fynn is a shy high school junior, cursed with an eerie intuitive ability: she sees a series of unique digits hovering above the foreheads of each person she encounters. Her earliest memories are marked by these numbers, but it takes her father’s premature death for Maddie and her family to realize that these mysterious digits are actually death dates, and just like birthdays, everyone has one.

Forced by her alcoholic mother to use her ability to make extra money, Maddie identifies the quickly approaching death date of one client's young son, but because her ability only allows her to see the when and not the how, she’s unable to offer any more insight. When the boy goes missing on that exact date, law enforcement turns to Maddie.
Soon, Maddie is entangled in a homicide investigation, and more young people disappear and are later found murdered. A suspect for the investigation, a target for the m…
