Review: Panic by Lauren Oliver

Review: Panic by Lauren Oliver

I thought for sure I was going to enjoy this book. I absolutely LOVED Before I Fall, and while I wasn’t the biggest fan, Delirium was still enjoyable. Sadly, this one did not work for me. The pacing was downright horrendous – I was bored out of my mind for most of the book. There was far too much detail about mundane things, and I think that could have been cut back to keep the pace moving. After pages and pages of detail […]

Review: Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver

I was afraid to finish this one because of everyone ranting and raving about the ending. Truthfully, I wasn’t all that surprised because I was waiting for it to happen.

Review: Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Review: Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Oh. My. God. When this book first started, I loathed Sam and her friends. They were everything I hate in girls – snobby, preppy, shallow. Cheating on tests and copying homework. Making fun of everyone they consider less fortunate. Flirting with teachers (gag). I was disgusted by how Sam and her friends treated other people. And I found it irritating how focused on sex they were, like it was the most important thing in a relationship, or something to gain […]
