my review I could not put this book down. This was my first by the author, but now that I’ve discovered her, I need to read EVERYTHING! This was one of those books that just wouldn’t let me go. I’m a sucker for legal thrillers, coming from a long line of attorneys, so this really […]

My Review I got the ARC of The Fifth Petal (review coming soon) from NetGalley, not realizing that it was the second novel in the series.  So I purchased The Lace Reader.  Being fascinated with all things Salem and its witchcraft history, I was really interested to see how it played out in this novel.  And I absolutely […]

My Review This is a book that I have read and reread several times.  My mother, who recently passed away, taught this book for years as a high school English teacher and it was her favorite novel.  So when the publishers sponsored a read-along of the novel, I took part with a close friend who was […]

My Review I really enjoyed this novella!  There are a lot of moments in this novella that weren’t in Delirium and others that were, but we get to see them in a totally different light in Hana. Hana becomes much more of a three-dimensional character in this book.  We see much more than the fun-loving, rebellious girl […]

My Review Alex is the last of the Delirium novellas, letting us get to know Alex through his own eyes instead of through Lena’s.  Most of it told of his time in the crypts and then his escape.  It was interesting to see his character change during his time away, but it made me even less sure […]

Annabel

My Review Annabel is the story of Lena’s mother and it really gives readers of the series a little bit of insight to her.  It starts years before Lena was born and shares Annabel’s experience with the cure and her time in the crypts.  Annabel grew up as society was changing and she rebelled against […]

My Review I have such mixed opinions on this last book in the Delirium series.  I have enjoyed the series, but the pacing and story in this one seemed to stall a little bit.  And the ending… I just don’t know how I feel about it! I liked the back and forth POVs between Lena and Hana. […]

My Review I loved Delirium and I loved Pandemonium just as much, if not more!  I enjoyed the “now and then” structure of it.  It gave us backstory a bit at a time and let the story of the now keep moving forward and that was an interesting mix. Everything about Lena’s life has turned on […]

My Review Why did I wait so long to start reading this amazing series?!  I love the premise of this story, that love is not only the root of all that is wrong with the world, but a disease in and of itself.  The implications are terrifying, the thought processes and sheer control of the […]

My Review This is one of those series that I am desperately sad to see end.  It was engrossing and emotional from the very beginning and I completely fell into it! That being sad, this book was a satisfying conclusion to the story.  Juliette really came into her own.  That is character that has come […]
