Delirium + Pandemonium Review

I'm really sorry for not posting anything this week. I did however finish reading these two books while I was away.

Overview: Ninety-five days, and then I'll be safe. I wonder whether the procedure will hurt. I want to get it over with. It's hard to be patient. It's hard not to be afraid while I'm still uncured, though so far the deliria hasn't touched me yet. Still, I worry. They say that in the old days, love drove people to madness. The deadliest of all deadly things: It kills you both when you have it and when you don't.

What I thought:
I really loved how Lauren Oliver makes you feel everything Lena is feeling. How she makes you understand how dulled everyone is to any kind of real emotion. How they think being detached from the world is better that loving it. I couldn't help but cry when she found the dog lying there dying. It was unreal how someone could feel so little that they left their dog to die by the garbage. Makes you realize how much we all need Love in our lives even if it's a hard thing to deal with sometimes.

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 and flame

What I thought: Lauren Oliver shows you how Lena is becoming a stronger person since she left Portland and entered into the Wilds. The chapters are "Then" and "Now". They go back and forth from her life in the Wilds to her new life in New York City. I was not expecting some of the things that happened through out the book, but the end I pretty much guessed right off the bat. Even though I guessed what happened it was still a good book. I'm loving this series and I can't wait to read Requiem.

I really hope you all enjoy these books as much as I did. Please leave any comments below! Happy reading :)
