I don't know what's real anymore. It's all so confusing! Still, Newt and Minho are my favorite characters. I don't care if Thomas dies on the last book. He is annoying. The cranks gave me goosebumps. Seriously, they gave me the creeps.
Betrayals. Mind games. Suspicious Characters. Variables. Patterns. I really hope it will all make sense on The Death Cure....more

There's always that sentimental feeling when you finish the last book of a Series/Trilogy.
First, the book is too detailed. There are a lot of explanations and dialogues.
Second, the action is in the city, not outside the fence. We only get glimpse of what's happening when Tobias watches from the screens in the control room.
Third, I liked the jealous Tris and Tobias. It also irritated me- the part where Tobias met Nita at night. (Four, what happened to you?!) (Tris! You don't know what he's doing at your back!) (I felt that Tobias was cheating on Tris even though there was really nothing going on.)
Fourth, there were scenes that made me laugh, and made me giddy with excitement. And made me want to throw the book away.
Fifth, the characters (the people in the city) are like pawns being played by the government of the Bureau. The problem is just simple; it looked complicated because of their shrewd mind.
*District 13 vs. The Capitol // The city vs. The compound Katniss and Tris were both in the middle of the war.
It's not what I expected! (view spoiler)[So Tobias got his mom, but he lost Tris? I can't believe she died. I've become too attached to her. I have to admit that it hurts. So freaking hurts to see the person you’re cheering on to die. I read the last few pages with shaking hands and sweaty palms. It’s so hard. It’s painful. I feel sad, and empty, and lost. (hide spoiler)]
Tobias, I’m sorry. We need to be brave.
"I'm all right. It's hard. It always will be."
Fictional characters' deaths. It doesn’t matter if you’re in denial. You can't change the fact that they're dead....more

There were times when I became frustrated with Tris. Because of her choices, and not being able to fight her self with pity and depression. I liked Tobias. He was still secretive though, and a little trust to Tris wouldn't hurt him. Their relationship was always on the verge of breaking until it could destroy both of them.
(view spoiler)[I knew better than to trust Evelyn. She reminded me of President Coin from Mockingjay. They could use and manipulate people using only their hands.
Peter's change of heart was kind of expected. It was obvious with how he treated Tris. I even had a flitting thought that he had a crush on her- which was ironic.
Caleb. Nothing hurts more than the betrayal of your own family. Especially if he's the only one left. Faction over blood. Ugh. (hide spoiler)]
Things happened simultaneously. One minute they were here, and then the next they were doing something else. A lot of twists and turns, and out of the blue turn of events. One of the books that left me breathless while reading it.
I'm not disappointed on how the plot turned out. I did not assume a lot of characters to die. I know it was a war, but still.
When I turn the next page, I was surprised to find that it was the last one. There are a lot of unanswered questions and I can't wait to find them!
Reading Insurgent was like completing a puzzle. It was fun, and anticipation is enthralling. Learning things bit by bit was exciting. I couldn't stop until I finally looked at the bigger picture....more

Alex reminded me of Etienne *Anna and the French Kiss*. He's so sweet! I want to crawl inside the book and give him a hug. But then I remembered the plot and thought: Creepy! Lena used to be a coward. She was like, contented with what's happening to her. She liked the normal things- the opposite of Hana, her fierce best friend.
I liked the way Ms. Oliver wrote the book. The words swirl together in perfect harmony. There were shocking scenes that will leave you breathless, and make your heart pound in your chest. I found myself wishing that nothing horrible will happen to the protagonists even though the it's already done.
Who would have thought Love can be a disease? This goes well with our current situation nowadays.

Joining Belly in her adventure was indescribable. I liked her from the beginning until the end. Her emotions were believable and relatable. It was wonderful seeing her as a child, a teenager, and finally, a woman. She made mistakes and wrong decisions. She was not perfect. But she lived her life the way she wanted. And in the end, she chose the thing that will leave her at peace and happy. And I admire her for that.
Somehow, I always knew Belly and Conrad would end up together. They're just meant to be. And it's the type of love that is forever. Infinite.
I learned A LOT from reading the trilogy. It's the type of book you will read again and again because you won't get tired of it. And when you close it, you will hug it to your chest because you just love it. Their story made me laugh, cry, and smile at the same time. It was an experience I wouldn't forget.
The characters (esp Belly, Conrad, and Jeremiah) will always have a special place in my heart....more
