Pandemonium - Lauren Oliver More of my reviews at The Cozy Reading Corner

"Oh. My God." These were the only words I could utter after reading Pandemonium. Then I tried to gather my thoughts, so I put the book down and began to pace. But it wasn't long before I was returning to the book and re-reading the last page. And still, the only words running through my head were, "Oh. My. God." And that's when I began to panic, because I would have to wait until 2013 to get the final installment. Then I became angry. How could Lauren Oliver do this to me? She has just wrenched my heart out of my chest and made me eat it. And do you want to know what the worst part is? I liked it. Finally, I just accepted what had happened and decided to write my review. Although what this is really going to be, is a paragraph full of fangirling and twisting emotions. You see, you might have noticed something about the process I went though after finishing this book. It was the grieving process- and it was real. First there was the shock, then the panic, next came anger, and finally acceptance. And all of this happened within ten minutes. I read a quote once that said:

"What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him [or her] up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though."
-J.D. Salinger

That is exactly how I felt. Like I could have just called Lauren Oliver up and gotten her to spill the secrets for the next book or we could have just chatted about Delirium and Pandemonium like old pals. But I have not had the pleasure of meeting Lauren..... yet. But if when I do meet her, it will be when I'm armed with all of her books, a pen, and a camera to immortalize the moment forever. But moving on.... back to the book. If you could actually call it a book. Because to me, it was so much more than that. I can't even really explain it. But Delirium is my #1 top favorite series ever. Because, honestly? Who could compete with that! Because these books are ahhhh-mazing and I am so emotionally invested in the series. If you have read this far then you have probably realized that I can't even write a real review. All I can tell you is that I LOVE this series and if you haven't read them yet, then you need to get to it. Like, right now! And if you have already read Delirium then you really need to read Pandemonium because...... just wow. Although, now that I'm thinking about it, maybe you shouldn't read Pandemonium until closer to the release date of Requiem because (trust me!) once you finish this book you are going to be dying to read the next one, just like I am right now....... but you can always just go ahead and read it so that we can suffer together! :P
