For the first time, Lauren Oliver's short stories about characters in the Delirium world appear in print. Originally published as digital novellas, Hana, Annabel, and Raven each center around a fascinating and complex character who adds important information to the series and gives it greater depth. This collection also includes an excerpt from Requiem, the final novel in Oliver's New York Times bestselling series. Hana is told through the perspective of Lena's best friend, Hana Tate. Set during the tumultuous summer before Lena and Hana are supposed to be cured, this story is a poignant and revealing look at a moment when the girls' paths diverge and their futures are altered forever. Lena's mother, Annabel, has always been a mystery—a ghost from Lena's past—until now. Her journey from teenage runaway to prisoner of the state is a taut, gripping narrative that expands the Delirium world and illuminates events—and Lena—through a new point of view. And as the passionate, fierce leader of a rebel group in the Wilds, Raven plays an integral role in the resistance effort and comes into Lena's life at a crucial time. Crackling with intensity, Raven is a brilliant story told in the voice of one of the strongest and most tenacious characters in the Delirium world.

This was about what I expected it to be, not much. The only reason I decided to read it was because I really did enjoy the Delirium serues and wanted more from Lauren Oliver. Because she is so mix-matched for me. Delirium Stories is split into three parts telling viewpoints from Hanna, Annabelle a...

Annabel:I always wanted to know more about Lena's mother and I think her story is beautiful, even if it's sad and tragic. To love a person who could never return your love equally I think is the greatest test of strength of all. Nothing could hurt a person as much as that. Raven:Interesting revelati...
Okay, first, what is this annoying trend where authors omit bits of their story and put them in these short novellas? I hate it. It's commercial and gross, I hate feeling obligated to read them, and it annoys me that they exist. With that said, I spotted this compilation of stories from Lauren Olive...
