My thoughts on Delirium and Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver

They say that the cure for Love will make me happy and safe forever. And I’ve always believed them. Until now. Now everything has changed. Now, I’d rather be infected with love for the tiniest sliver of a second than live a hundred years smothered by a lie.

I’m pushing aside
the memory of my nightmare,
pushing aside thoughts of Alex,
pushing aside thoughts of Hana
and my old school,
like Raven taught me to do.
The old life is dead.
But the old Lena is dead too.
I buried her.
I left her beyond a fence,
behind a wall of smoke?

I am totally unsure about this series. I love the concept of the series, but something about actually reading them gets to me. I am not sure if it was not executed right for me or it the characters. I mean banning love is such a good concept. love is such a big deal in today's society. Everybody strives for love, so what if you love was banned. I have never been in love but I hope one day do be in love.

I think the characters were a issue of mine. Lena annoyed me. She seemed to complain and not see the world in how she should. Hanna was just a bad friend and also seemed to complain a ot. The boys in both annoyed me. I mainly didn't like them.

The plot flowed nicely but something was off to me. I really I am sure. Maybe it is because I am not a big fan of this type of novel. Don't get me wrong, I did like the books, but something was not right to me. I would tell my friends to read the novels and the next book when it come out next year. This is not a hate review just a I am not quite so sure about the novels but I do like them.

This is really short but it has been a while since I wrote a review.

Hopefully I follow through with my promise this time

So. I have been thinking I have been neglecting my blog for about the last 2ish or so years. So I want to now promise to myself I will post once a week in both July and June. I am about to begin my senior year in high school and I want my senior to be good and one way to do so is improving my blog and working on it once again. I will hopefully be able to do memes and some reviews. This is about the third time I have said this so hopefully third times a charm.
