What is #DashnerDash
I got contacted a few weeks back inviting me to participate in the upcoming #DashnerDash #bingeread that was being planned to promote the next book in the #MazeRunner series.
Join new and established James Dashner fans in THE #DASHNERDASH BINGE READ, a rereading of all four titles in the bestselling Maze Runner series, in advance of the September 27 publication of the eagerly anticipated Maze Runner prequel novel, The Fever Code.
I told them how excited I was for the new release, but that I didn’t own any of the books. They’d been on my wishlist forever, and I loved the movie, I just hadn’t had the extra funds to grab the books yet. #thestruggleisreal, yall. Right? Anyway, cut to a few days later and
Yeah, I may be in love with the people at PenguinTeen (aka Delacorte Press ) I’m not saying this is so… just…
Oh who am I kidding. I so freaking love those guys! OMG!
What was in the box?
How awesome is it they sent me a box of books so I could participate? Pretty freaking awesome, you guys! They sent me all four of the already released books!

If you ain’t scared, you ain’t human.
When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He’s surrounded by strangers—boys whose memories are also gone.
Nice to meet ya, shank. Welcome to the Glade.
Outside the towering stone walls that surround the Glade is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It’s the only way out—and no one’s ever made it through alive.
Everything is going to change.
Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying.
Remember. Survive. Run.

More on #DashnerDash
Has it been a while since you have entered the Glade, or are you curious to know more about all the Maze Runner series buzz? Now is the time to have your questions answered and discussed as Random House Children’s Books invites Dashner fans worldwide to participate in a discussion of one title in the series each month.
The reread will kick off on May 27 with The Maze Runner—fans can submit questions via the James Dashner Facebook page. Selected questions will then be discussed by the author and his editor, Krista Marino, in a series of live Google Hangouts during the last week of each month. The first Google Hangout with Dashner and Marino will happen the week of June 27. Specific details will be posted on the Facebook page and shared via social media.
Rereads of The Scorch Trials begin on June 27, followed by The Death Cure on July 27, and The Kill Order on August 27. Questions can again be submitted via Facebook, and a book-club-style discussion will occur at the end of each month. The Google Hangout for The Kill Order at the end of August will lead right into the publication of The Fever Code on September 27.
Bloggers are encouraged to take part in the binge read, and those participating will receive a number of signed Dashner books to give away.
What better way to celebrate the start of summer than by revisiting a beloved series and introducing the books to new fans? Look for the first two chapters of The Fever Code, recently revealed in the paperback edition of The Rule of Thoughts, to be discussed in the Maze Runner Google Hangout as well. Titles are available wherever books are sold. The series has sold over 14 million copies in all formats.
JAMES DASHNER is the author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Maze Runner series—The Maze Runner, The Scorch Trials, The Death Cure, and The Kill Order—as well as the bestselling Mortality Doctrine series, which includes The Eye of Minds, The Rule of Thoughts, and The Game of Lives.

Big Thanks to Delacorte Press for sending me a copy of The Maze Runner (The Maze Runner, Book 1) by James Dashner!!
AND as always, big thanks to you for popping by to see what I was rambling on about. LOL
Hope you have a great week.
Just a reminder, I usually post pics of the books I get right as I get them on to my facebook page and my instagram so make sure to click over and LIKE the page and/or follow my gram – then you’ll see what books I get as I get them instead of waiting till I do a “book haul” video. I’ll still do haul videos every couple of weeks, too. So… yeah. All righty then.
