But sadly that never happens; I end up finishing the first book and wanting desperately to read the next one. Pandemonium will be out tomorrow, but sadly that does not help since the third and final book will be out next year. And now for the actual review… Delirium captured my attention from the beginning. A few pages into the book I felt like I was a part of the world Lena lived in. Delirium is a dystopian novel and the fact that Lauren Oliver’s words made me feel like I was living in the same place and time as Lena, was amazing. I love books that have action, suspense and of course a great love story. Delirium had all three and more. One of my favorite things was the way it was written. The words were lyrical and beautiful. Even if you are not a fan of dystopian novels I would suggest you still give this book a chance. You won’t regret it. In fact you will be as desperate as me to read the next one. (less)

The plot seemed intriguing, but I saw it had a lot of negative reviews. I purchased the book a few months ago and I finally decided to read it. Wow. I was not disappointed at all. This book was AMAZING. I was hooked as soon as I read the first line. The plot was unique. The relationship between Juliette and Adam was HOT. I even liked Warner (the antagonist). I loved all of the characters, but one that stood out to me was Kenji. He was funny, sarcastic and a big flirt. He added comic relief to the otherwise serious situation.
A lot of people complained about the style of writing. The strikeouts, the use of too many similes/metaphors, and the word repetitions annoyed a lot of people, but I actually like the book more because of those things. It was different and it made Juliette’s character more relatable.
Shatter Me is everything I could want in a story. Filled with suspense, romance, action and drama. This will make a great movie (assuming the movie makers don’t screw it up).

When I finished reading The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, I instantly had to reread it. It’s amazing! I own a copy in eBook format and also a print copy, which I got signed by the author. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer was mysterious, creepy, funny, sexy, and romantic without being cheesy. I recommended this book to my cousin, and once she started reading it, she was hooked. People, read this book! Once you start you won’t be able to put it down. Can’t wait for the second book***(less)
