Review: Requiem by Lauren Oliver


Hey guys!

I just finished reading Requiem by Lauren Oliver. Here's my review:


Review:

Okay first off and foremost what the fuck what on earth kind of ending was that?! She's got to be kidding me on this being the finale! I just cannot stand for it. It's ridiculous. It's absurd! That was not an ending. Well it was, but not an ending ending. All the questions I still have! Agh! Yes, it was a beautiful ending, but it could've been so much better. Come on Lauren! I know you can do better than that! I just want to know if he finds her or not! And what happens to Hana?! Couldn't you have put in an epilogue or something?
Well throughout the book it was still fabulous, and I'm so glad that I read it. Plus at the end, after the story, there's a short story about Alex which I'm about to go read! :D Yay! I thought you had to like buy it as a separate copy, but nope. I was really upset thinking that I'd never get to read Alex, but I was wrong. This is one of the few times that I'm glad that I'm wrong.
Okay, so here's the thing about Julian and Alex. Both are amazing. I found it impossible to decide for part of the time at least. At the end of Pandemonium I was completely team Julian! And during the beginning of Reqiuem as well, but now I'm full on team Alex! Somewhere along the lines, I just changed my mind. And for you guys in team Julian, I think you'll do the same... By the way, Alex isn't as awful as he appears to be.
And oh my god! Annabel! Well, Bee! You're amazingly cold! I love you. Honestly, I expected her to be super warm and sweet, but the fact the she is though is still cold and tough at the same time is just beautiful! She's bittersweet! :') I wish I knew her. And she just reminds me so much of Raven.
Raven just makes me tear up. She's an amazing person and I love her name. Man, I wish I had a mom like her.
Lena, let me tell you something. You are so lucky! Julian & Alex?! Pfft, I got no one girl! Then you got Raven and Bee?! Plus Tack?! Why do you feel like your life isn't awesome?! I would die for your life give or take the fight for survival.
Anyways, I'm gonna give this a 4/5 just because I felt like that wasn't a proper ending and that it didn't do the story justice. Even though I'm super pleased with how it ended, I'm just not. Okay... I'm contradicted myself now... I just love but hate it at the same time!
What makes this book different from all others? And why should anyone care? This book is about a world where love is illegal and where it's a 'disease'. I've never read a book about that before. People should care, because that'll finally know what it's like to live in a world without love. Those people, lol me, who say they're loners and no one loves them and all still won't understand what not having any love is like and reading this you'll realize that you're wrong and people do love you. Even if it's just your mother's love, that's still so important.
Did this book meet my high expectations? Well yes, but no. The story did, but the ending didn't.
Would I recommend this book and to who? Yes, to all those who need a new series please read the Delirium series! Or if you started it, please finish it.

Hey guys!

So, I made these petitions and was hoping you guys could sign. :D So here is a little bit about them and the links to sign them. Also they are as a html on the side of this blog. ----->

First petition:
School Uniforms. What child likes to wear uniforms? My friends and I certainly don't. There is no one in the schools that I've been to - and have a uniform - like to wear them. We believe that we all should have the right to dress. What if it is in the wash or drying and you can't go to the store to buy it? What will you do? All you can do is get in trouble. They don't accept excuses. Some schools just give you a warning. However, some schools give you detention for it! Now, who wants that?! You may just wear the wrong shoes by accident or wrong jacket. Well, there's nothing you can do about it. You're doomed! So sign this petition to get rid of the awful uniforms! Link: http://www.change.org/petitions/schools-no-more-uniforms

But now an invading army marches north destroying everything in its path. The dragons believe only together can the invaders be defeated. They need an emissary. 

Womanizer. Drunk. Failure. Soren is many things. A leader isn’t one of them. But, Dex, the dragon that saves him from a cliff, believes different. Thrust into an adventure he never wanted, Soren’s life changes forever when during a battle Dex’s blood mixes with his blood creating a mythical blood bond – forever linking them. 

As the bond strengthens, Soren must decide whether to return to his old life or accept the bond and embrace his role in the battle against the invading army.
