Requiem by Lauren Oliver… My thoughts

Book Description (via Amazon)

Publication Date: March 5, 2013

This exciting finale to Lauren Oliver’s New York Times bestselling Delirium trilogy is a riveting blend of nonstop action and forbidden romance in a dystopian United States.

Now an active member of the resistance, Lena has transformed. The nascent rebellion that was underway in Pandemonium has ignited into an all-out revolution in Requiem, and Lena is at the center of the fight.

After rescuing Julian from a death sentence, Lena and her friends fled to the Wilds. But the Wilds are no longer a safe haven. Pockets of rebellion have opened throughout the country, and the government cannot deny the existence of Invalids. Regulators infiltrate the borderlands to stamp out the rebels.

As Lena navigates the increasingly dangerous terrain of the Wilds, her best friend, Hana, lives a safe, loveless life in Portland as the fiancée of the young mayor. Requiem is told from both Lena and Hana’s points of view. They live side by side in a world that divides them until, at last, their stories converge.

With lyrical writing, Lauren Oliver seamlessly interweaves the peril that Lena faces with the inner tumult she experiences after the reappearance of her first love, Alex, the boy she thought was dead. Sophisticated and wide-ranging, Requiem brings the Delirium trilogy to a thrilling conclusion.

My Thoughts ❤

I have been waiting on this book for like EVER!  I was SUPER excited when the hardcopy arrived at my doorstep!

This book is exactly what I thought it should be.  All the questions that you have from the previous stories are answered.  Decisions are made between Lena, Jillian, and Alex.  I do like how Hana is more involved in this story.  After reading Hana: The Delirium Story, I was ready to give her a piece of my mind.  In this book, I have to give her a little credit for her choices.  I liked her a million times more than I did when I read Hana.  The only complaint I had was that I think I had been waiting so long for this book that I was a little disappointed… I think I had too much anticipation for it!  (I’m actually hoping the same thing doesn’t happen when I read Walking Disaster next week!)

This book is an excellent book, and the perfect ending to this trilogy.  I did want to see more of what happened after everything was ok.  But that is typically what I want to happen in any book or series that I love.

I def recommend this series to anyone who loves The Hunger Games or Divergent!  If you have read the first 2 of the series, I’m sure you have already read Requiem by now! 🙂
