(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis Thanks to Little, Brown Books for Young Readers and NetGalley.) This was a really enjoyable sequel, and I really want to read the next book in the series now! I really liked the characters in this book, and I liked how they developed during the course of the book. Each had their own problems, and each had their own strengths. I really admired how strong Clarke was against adversity, and how Bellamy continued to look for his sister, even if he did come off as a bit of a jerk at times! The storyline in this was good, and I liked how we moved forward in this book. It was good to see what was happening to the people on earth, as well as what was happening back up on the ship that they had left. There were some plot points that I saw coming, but there were also some parts that I really enjoyed. There was a little bit of romance in this, but not a lot. It was more a continuation of how some couples got on rather than anything new. The ending to this was another cliff-hanger, but I really liked the action. Can’t wait for the next book now! Overall; great sequel, 8 out of 10.

Another good book. This book still switched between the same people. I'm really digging the characters. I like them immensely the more I read about them. I'm really angry about t.v. show Wells now especially with the big reveal near the end of this book and I think he's a cool dude. I really like Sasha and hopefully there will be more of her. There wasn't much of Glass but I have a feeling there will a lot of her in the next one. That girl has been through a lot and I think she may be my fav in the series. There were some slight inconsistencies. Nothing major but I caught because I read these books back to back. I do wish there was more when it came to the rebel "Earthborns" but I think (hopefully) in the next book we'll see more of them. If not there is something else to look forward to reading that involves Clarke. So, yeah I liked the book and was disappointed when I got to the end because I didn't want it to be done. I don't think I can wait for the next one. *I received this through NetGalley*

I loved The 100 and was super excited about this book. Kass Morgan doesn't disappoint this book had lots of excitement and I love the romance between Clarke and Bellemy and Luke and Glass. The only thing I didn't like was the darn book was too short! I am looking forward to book three! I also like the idea of the earthborns not being crazy war painted the show lol

I was expecting this series to be as equally awesome or even better than the Cw tv series. The first book was ok But this 2nd book unfortunately has been a let down. I am still going to keep reading b/c of the show- Hoping that the next book is better! *fingers crossed*

This is one of the best sequels that I have read in a really long time! DAY 21 starts right back up where THE 100 left off without missing a beat - with so many questions needing to be answered, no stone is left unturned...  *Since this is about book 2, a few minor spoilers may be mentioned. You have been warned.* It has been 21 days since they have landed on Earth. Supplies are running low and emotions are running high. Most are thinking the same thing - when is the next dropship coming? Are they still being monitored? Are they okay? Will they survive?... and then the most unthinkable happens and they discover that they are not alone.  We continue to follow the same four lead characters - Wells, Clarke, Bellamy and Glass. Wells is trying his best to keep the group together with logic and distractions. He has organized groups to build log cabins and others to gather basic supplies. People are drawn to him and he has become their unofficial leader. He knows that the first attack and that the kidnapping of Bellamy's sister was just the beginning to warning them - they are not welcomed. But other than the fact that there is no other place for them to go, no way to leave and go back home - he also knows, there's no way to defend themselves. They have no weapons and no experience or knowledge of their new surroundings.  Clarke is drowning in sadness and guilt. Not only does she have to live with the knowledge that her scientist parents were performing immoral experiments, but also, with what happened to her friend, a friend that has a connection to Bellamy. It is something that she will not be able to keep a secret for much longer... As she's dealing with her feelings she is certain about one thing - that if they find the Earthborns and approach them in a peaceful way, the Earthborns will be able to help and guide them. She also feels that they may have unlimited information on other resources and may even know something about  some artifacts that she had found in the woods. Items that may indicate that another dropship may have been sent prior to theirs...  Bellamy is hellbent on finding his sister and will do anything to get her back. He will risk his life and more... but another development has occurred- his deep feelings for Clarke are getting in the way. He doesn't want this distraction right now. Especially when Clarke reveals not only the reason why she was imprisoned, but also, that the heavy guilt and sadness that she's been carrying around with her has to do with Lilly, her friend aka his past girlfriend. Regardless of his feelings, he is compelled to help Clarke find the colonists and hope that it leads to finding his sister.  And now for Glass. Last we saw Glass she was pardoned and reconnecting with her mother, and her ex-boyfriend, Luke. Their story and chemistry is much like Rose and Jack's - swoony... Things seem to be falling apart on the spaceship and they discover that there isn't enough oxygen for everyone. The poorer sections are cut off; leaving Luke to die. Glass goes to him and decides to die with him. Until they discover a way to break through the barrier to get to the dropships that will be heading to Earth, even though received any proof of Earth being habitable yet. In the chaos of trying to get onto the dropship - horrific events that mimic the likes of the tragedies of the Titanic occur... and Luke learns the entire truth as to why Glass was not only imprisoned, but why his best friend was executed. A heartbreaking moment for everyone involved.  From the very beginning the book was a complete page-turner for me. Luckily, for me at least, each chapter is titled with each of the characters names. Therefore, I was able to do the unthinkable - my apologies! For me, Glass and Luke's storyline was my favorite, and I just had to know what was happening - and since their storyline is separate from Wells, Clarke and Bellamy's, I read Glass' chapters straight through! It was heart pounding and left me breathless. Going back to read the storyline that was happening on Earth, again, it was fast-paced and straight-forward. Kass Morgan is able to give you just enough information to keep you going - never overwhelming or too sci-fi-ish. It's to the point and you learn about everything as you go, just like the characters. And I absolutely love that! I still haven't watched the show, but I can already tell that the books are, obviously, way better. All of my questions from book one have been answered; but now there are more things going on, more questions, more characters - and I cannot get enough. I am anxiously awaiting to hear about book 3!  In the meantime, I am going to calm my nerves while I catch up with the show...

I loved the show "The 100" and i am kinda looking for spoilers untill (hopefully) they make a new season. Ive been lookkng for books for the show since i finihed the show one month ago. It doesnt take me forever to finish a show, actually when i tart to like a book,i binge watch it seasob by season. I started watching the 100 because i had finished the other shows i was watching "Izombie" and "One Day at a Time". I like scifi and drama shows. I have a question about the 100, why does everyone think that Clark and Bellamy were together. Cant there just be a male and a female friendship on a show. My fovorite character on the show is Lexa. I thiught that Lexa and clarke were meant to be (Clexa). I know that is like throwing dirt on clarks previous lover Nila (i thibk thatdbher name) but just my opinion. I love that there were LGBT+ relationships on tge show. I know thatthe producer probably got a lot of hste fot it, but i loved it. I got emotinally attached to the characters. Like when when the little gurl that killed will in season one commited suicide, i honestly wasnt upset, i was stunned, but nog upset.

Much like The 100 this book is narrated by different people, Clarke, Wells and Bellamy who are on Earth give us an insight into what’s happening with the now less than 100 people sent from the spaceship. And Glass who narrates what’s happening in the Colony and the struggles to remain there alive and with the love of her life. On Earth we just found out that there are more people living there, The Earthborn, we don’t know much about them yet but we suspect they are dangerous, we also meet an Earthborn girl named Sasha who apparently has good intentions and is trying to help the kids from space, although they don’t feel the same about her. On space with Glass, things are going really bad, the oxygen is running low, people from the poorer parts of he ship are being sacrificed so the rich people can survive and go to Earth. I was surprised by many plot twists in this book, some expected but some I didn’t and they left my head spinning. I’ve always liked this type of books, the ones that puts humanity in extreme conditions and shows us how they react, I think their reactions are very genuine, how humans want to live and how we can surprise ourselves with the means we use to accomplish that. How we are more prone to turn on each other than on finding common ground and try to survive as a group. I can’t wait to read the next book, those final characters PoV left me in shock.

I received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review. As soon as I finished book one and had my review up and posted I dived into book two.  So we are 21 days into the kids or young teenagers on Earth. They are slowly learning how to survive, with the help of Wells everyone is learning how to build huts to live in, we have Bellamy who is hunting and helping by bringing food when he can, and of course Clarke is doing all she can to help those that are injured or sick. We still have 4 POV's and they are the same characters as in the first book which I thought was pretty good to keep the same characters so we didn't get thrown off.  The only problem I had with the POV's was in book one the author did a great job letting us know in each chapter the present and the past. By the change of the font so it all didn't blend in together. In this story she didn't do that. I found myself on more than one occasion going back to make sure I was reading the past and not the present as it was hard to tell being as the font was not changed. I know something silly to complain about. So at the end of book one we learned that Octavia who is Bellamy's sister was kidnapped. Then in this story Wells actually captures someone who is trying to sneak away from their camp. But this is not just someone this is someone who actually lives on Earth. That means that there have been people here before the one hundred. And we get to meet them just once so it makes me want to read more to find out about these people. And revelation that was revealed to Clarke! There are no laws that are set and everyone well almost everyone wants to kill this Earth person. But Bellamy needs her alive to tell him where his sister is at. The question is will this girl live or will she die? Will Octavia be found? As we are getting POV's from Bellamy, Clarke and Wells on Earth. We are getting the POV from Glass who is still on the ship. And what she is going through is something that is scary. They are running out of oxygen in space and some people will live and some will not. From those in space who will make it to Earth? There is some action, and still a whole lot of people kissing each other. I did enjoy how the characters were learning to adapt to living on Earth, and were trying to come together as one. I have to say I did enjoy this book not sure if I liked it more than the first or if I like them both the same. Hopefully there is another book.

 Hallelujah! Thank you Kass Morgan; Day 21 was everything that I was wanting from The 100 and more. I originally started reading this sequel solely to learn more about my Bellamy Blake but I left this book having respect (and dare I say love) for each of the main characters. The only way that I can describe my journey through this book is that I accidentally tripped and fell in love with this novel. I was still burned from the first book not meeting my expectations but before I knew it, I was one hundred (hehe) percent into this book. I thought the premise of The 100 was compelling and it was finally lived up to its potential in this sequel. I don't even know how to write this review. All of the issues that I had in the first book are no more; the science fiction aspects took on a huge role, the society building was fascinating to read about, and even the romance was better.  I loved the fact that they were no longer newbies to the planet and they were starting to really get a feel of the land. It is revealed that there are people inhabiting earth which brings up several questions about human nature and how to deal with this new information. For some, the obvious response to fear/the unknown is violence, while others seek peace in a time of fear. I loved seeing how the people came together and worked through their differences, making mistakes but also learning together as a group.  The characters in this book were all great. Like I said before, I now have a love for all of the characters because they finally came into their own. The new characters that were introduced were wholly fascinating while also aiding the main characters in growth. Yes, Bellamy is still my favorite character but all of the characters were wonderful; I loved seeing how they grew and started to step up in the community. Bellamy is such an interesting character, he's so fiercely passionate that whatever act he decides to do, he commits fully to it. He's also sexy. There's that too. I loved this quote that a fourteen/fifteen year old girl said about him: “He’s so spectacularly attractive, no one can look directly at him. It’s just too blinding, like staring at the sun.” The flashbacks were still a huge part of this book but their purpose changed; in the first novel, they allowed us to learn back story about the characters but in this book they helped make connections between the main characters. Every time a connection was made, my mind was blown. These flashbacks were still my favorite part of the story because they, like the characters, evolved in their purposes. The book is told through four main POVs but this book allowed us to get a handle on the minor characters which really completed this book. The remaining hundred juveniles were adapting and learning as well as the main characters. They were sent to Earth completely in the dark of the happenings on the ship and down on land but as time goes on, they all understand the past and their present. One of my favorite quotes is: “If we can’t take care of each other, then it means they were right about us all along.” To sum it up, I loved this story and I can't wait for the third book, Homecoming, coming out in February. My mind is still processing everything that I learned in this book. Great read.

I left book 1 hoping that book 2 would fulfill some of the promise in this story line. I am happy to report that I got my wish. Read my review of book 1 here. Day 21 does a nicer job of telling the story at hand; I suppose it's easier with the world-building and character introduction out of the way in book 1 to concentrate just on plot here in book 2. This series avoids the usual slump of the second book, which has to recover from book 1's climactic ending; I think this is a happy side-effect of the serialized structure.  The structure here is still quite episodic, but cleaner than in book 1; transitions are more skillfully executed, and the focus is easier to follow. The reading experience is more enjoyable as a result, and the reader is better able to engage with characters in their struggle to make sense of what's going on.  There are two distinct stories going on here: the one on Earth's surface and the one that takes place in the space colony. While Clarke, Wells and Bellamy struggle to survive both the wilds of nature and their emotional natures on the surface, Glass and Luke are caught up in their own Romeo and Juliet- like drama in the colony. My favorite chapters were those that focused on Luke and Glass, though I certainly enjoyed the surprise twist in the Wells/Clarke/Bellamy dynamic.  I am really excited that this series has been translated to the small screen, and look forward to viewing those episodes while I wait for book 3. Things are really starting to cook with this plot, and I am really excited to see where it goes next.

Day 21  by Kass Morgan Day 21 is an interesting addition to the background and history of the 100 television show.  I find that the divergence of character and plot to be enlightening. The book explains how many of the situations and circumstances with in the series are possible.  The aftermath of the attack by the grounders has left the camp of the 100 in disarray. The divergent reactions and responses range the gambit of emotions, to violence, to political compromise. Now some of the kids seem to be coming down with an unknown illness. Did they miscalculate the nature of the air and water is the Earth killing them.   Back on the Colony, things have taken a turn for the worst. They have lowered the bridge, and blocked interactions between the three stations. Glass has been separated from Luke. Weighing the needs of the few and the many is not an easy question when the few are those you love, and the many is the entire upper class Phoenix population.
