bookchallenge week 46

boek 171 was het eerste deel uit de delirium serie en ben dol op dit boek. Vond dit deel spannend maar ook romantisch en grappig. Het hele idee dat liefde een ziekte is waaraan je geholpen kan worden vond ik heel goed en origineel.

D11614718elirium – Lauren Oliver

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.

boek 172 was de eerste novella van de delirium serie en deze gaat over de moeder van Lena. hij speelt wisselend in het nu en toen af. Vond deze erg leuk om te lezen.

15820492Annabel – Lauren Oliver

Lena’s mother, Annabel, has always been a mystery—a ghost in Lena’s past. Until now.
Discover her secrets in Lauren Oliver’s brilliant original digital story set in the world of New York Times bestsellers Delirium and Pandemonium.
Lena Halloway’s mother, Annabel, supposedly committed suicide when Lena was only six years old. That’s the lie that Lena grew up believing, but the truth is very different. As a rebellious teenager, Annabel ran away from home and straight into the man she knew she was destined to marry. The world was different then—the regulations not as stringent, the cure only a decade old. Fast forward to the present, and Annabel is consigned to a dirty prison cell, where she nurtures her hope of escape and scratches one word over and over into the walls: Love.
But Annabel, like Lena, is a fighter. Through chapters that alternate between her past and present, Annabel reveals the story behind her failed cures, her marriage, the births of her children, her imprisonment, and, ultimately, her daring escape.

boek 173 was nog een novella en deze is vanuit Hana geschreven de beste vriendin van Lena. Vond deze wat minder maar dat komt omdat een gedeelte van het boek ook in het eerste boek voorkomt maar dan vanuit Lena geschreven en ben daar niet zo fan van.

Hana – 12663646Lauren Oliver

The summer before they’re supposed to be cured of the ability to love, best friends Lena and Hana begin to drift apart. While Lena shies away from underground music and parties with boys, Hana jumps at her last chance to experience the forbidden. For her, the summer is full of wild music, dancing—and even her first kiss.

But on the surface, Hana must be a model of perfect behavior. She meets her approved match, Fred Hargrove, and glimpses the safe, comfortable life she’ll have with him once they marry. As the date for her cure draws ever closer, Hana desperately misses Lena, wonders how it feels to truly be in love, and is simultaneously terrified of rebelling and of falling into line.

boek 174 was weer een novella en deze was vanuit Alex. Ik ben dol op Alex en was erg blij met dit boekje. deze speelt zich meteen af na het eerste boek en heb hier erg van genoten.

This captivating digital original story set in the world of Lauren Oliver’s New York Times bestselling Delirium series focuses on Alex, Lena’s first love.

When Alex sacrificed himself to save Lena, he thought he was committing himself to certain death, but what he got was almost worse.

Both hopeful and terrified, he fights to find his way back to her and the love he still clings to.

Boek 175 was het tweede deel uit de Delirium serie. ben dol op deze serie. Hij eindigde wel met een clifhanger dus ben blij dat ik meteen verder kan met het derde boek. Kan je deze serie zeker aanraden.

9593911Pandemonium – Lauren Oliver

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.
