Book Review: Champion

Read from July 31 to August 10, 2016

Congratulations, on writing a fantastic action/dystopian series, Marie Lu. It had sat on my shelf for about two years before I picked it up unfortunately, but I finally got around to it a few months ago and, unlike most books I hold off on, this trilogy did not disappoint.

I wanted to start writing my five star review near the middle of the book! Champion is amazing. I feel like the characters have come such a long way from who they were in book one. I teared up maybe three, for sure two time. The final chapters really struck cords with me, which had me looking back on my own life and memories. So amazing.

The Legend series just has so much emotion, I can’t help but love the characters. I was behind both sides every step of the way, rooting them to safely and victory. Now, it’s like waving them off as I close the book for the last time. I feel contempt with the ending and I feel like everything has been wrapped up nicely, to say the least.

If this series has been on your guys’ shelves for too long, let me re-hype it up for you. These books are breathtaking! Go read them, now! P.S. After you’re done reading, you will go searching to see if there’s a companion novel, which there is a prequel and GRAPHIC NOVELS!, but then I suggest going through other reviews on Goodreads by readers who’ve also finished the series to cry some more because it’s all over.

If you want to read my book reviews for book 1 and 2, I’ll link them here.

I give Champion, the third book in the Legend series by Marie Lu, a 5/5 stars. My grading system is down below.

  • My rating system stands: 5/5 is a knock out of the park; this book deserves to be read by everyone. 4/5 is, “I really liked it,” but it did have a couple of kinks. 3/5 is, “I believe there are a lot of people who would enjoy this book, but for one reason or another, it didn’t sit well with me.” 2/5 is, “I really didn’t enjoy it and I’m not going to recommend it.” 1/5 is, “no one read this – throw it in a lake.”
