Book Review: Hana by Lauren Oliver.

 Hana by Lauren Oliver.
A Delirium Short Story: Delirium #1.5
Book Summary: The summer before they're supposed to be cured of the ability to love, best friends Lena and Hana begin to drift apart. While Lena shies away from underground music and parties with boys, Hana jumps at her last chance to experience the forbidden. For her, the summer is full of wild music, dancing—and even her first kiss. But on the surface, Hana must be a model of perfect behavior. She meets her approved match, Fred Hargrove, and glimpses the safe, comfortable life she’ll have with him once they marry. As the date for her cure draws ever closer, Hana desperately misses Lena, wonders how it feels to truly be in love, and is simultaneously terrified of rebelling and of falling into line. In this digital story that will appeal to fans of Delirium and welcome new admirers to its world, readers will come to understand scenes from Delirium through Hana's perspective. Hana is a touching and revealing look at a life-changing and tumultuous summer.

Liana's Summary: Lena and Hana are beginning to drift apart from each other. The cure is coming closer. Hana decides to get the best out of her life before the cure. This is written in Hana's point of view. As Lena's best friend, she has her own thoughts. And they're all in this book.

So pretty much I was kind of looking forward to reading this, but I guess I got somewhat disappointed. I was skimming the whole thing, omg. Pretty much. I like the cover, though! The cover is pretty. :3 Since it's only 17 pages, I only had a few quotes. I just copied and pasted, aha. The benefits of reading online. But now my eyes hurt. Gah! I read two books in a day. I'm happy. This doesn't really count as a book. More like a story. hehe. I thought it was somewhat long, but then the last few pages had a preview to Pandemonium, which I've already read.

Here's the reading link!

If you want to read, that is. :) I mean, it explains a few things. Like why Hana behaved as she did. Maybe, just maybe, I will read Before I Fall. Maybe! But not now. I need to find the download link somewhere. Okay, so, quote reactions!

"I don't bite, you know," Fred says lightly. I'm not sure whether he means it to be an invitation to move closer, but I stay where I am.

Psh. Get away you perv.

You're very pretty.


"Smart, pretty, and simple," Fred says. He smiles. "Perfect."

Perfect. Psh. Pervert.

I like your smile. I want to know you.

Pervert! I keep saying that, omg. 

That was the night he kissed me.

"Holy shit! Look, Hana. Fireflies."
They're fireflies. omg. Nothing holy shit about it.

I don't believe it. He gave me a Devil's Kiss.
You mean a hickey? Ewwwww. He IS a pervert!


Lol. Yes. Pervert, pervert, pervert. Really, man! Hana. I think this short story somewhat answered some of my questions about her.

Well, that's all! Short story, so short review. :)
