Raven
Raven (Delirium, #2.5) - Lauren Oliver

  Now this short story was really nice.It's by far my favorite of the three independent short stories (although I haven't read Alex yet)

In this short story from the Delirium series, we get a glimpse of Raven's past and find out how her relationship with Tack happened.

She was one of my favorite characters in the series so I really enjoyed her narration.

Delirium Stories Book Review
Delirium Stories: Hana, Annabel, and Raven - Lauren Oliver

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 and Raven. Three beloved characters from the Delirium series.

 

Hanna is definitely my favorite of the three and the only one I really enjoyed reading. Having her story first was a downfall for me because once I finished that I found myself not caring about the rest of the book.

 

I'd recommend it to those wanting more from Lauren Oliver and her popular Delirium series.

Delirium Stories: Hana, Annabel, and Raven - Lauren Oliver

Ninety-five days, and then I'll be safe. I wonder whether the procedure will hurt. I want to get it over with. It's hard to be patient. It's hard not to be afraid while I'm still uncured, though so far the deliria hasn't touched me yet. Still, I worry. They say that in the old days, love drove people to madness. The deadliest of all deadly things: It kills you both when you have it and when you don't.

0.5 Annabel

1. Delirium

1.5 Hana

2. Pandemonium

2.5 Raven

3. Requiem

Scripture tells you how to manage your emotions: Do everything as the The Book of Shhh tells you, and you will be fine, and calm, and unfevered.

Raven - Lauren Oliver This review is also available on my blog.

***

I was really excited to get into Raven's head cause she's one of my favorite characters from Delirium trilogy thanks to her leader-like attitude and tough personality. We get to know more about Raven's past from this short story, how she evolves from a scared teenager when she first arrives in the Wilds with Blue, her relationship with Tack and her decision to help Lena saving Julian. Sometimes Raven's attitude is a bit harsh in Pandemonium or Requeim, but now I understand what she has been through before and that makes me respect her more.

My only complain was the confusion I had when I started this short story. I admit it was a bit hard for me to adjust to the timeline (this story is set near the end of Pandemonium) cause I already read Requiem. And it goes back and forth between Raven's past and present. But overall, this is a very nice short story. Just saying, I think I would enjoy Requiem more if there was Raven's POV in it.

Raven - Lauren Oliver I am seriously a sucker for these Delirium short stories, especially when they're always about such interesting characters! Raven gave so much insight into her character. Even though she's present in the other books, you don't get to see much of her past. In the short, you find out about when she first came to the Wilds, how she met Tack, and what happened when she rescued Lena and Julian. This story, for me, gave Raven a more human side - her suffering was more evident. It brought back all my Blue feels though. And then (Requiem spoiler)SHE'S PREGNANT AND THEN SHE DIES. WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO ME LAUREN OLIVER. WHY. Seeing her relationship with Tack was super sweet though. It was hinted that they were romantically involved throughout Pandemonium but it was finally said outright. Tack and Raven are definitely my new otp. Raven was probably my favorite out of all the Delirium short stories, but that's probably just because Raven is my favorite of the three characters I've read so far. The shorts definitely add a lot to these characters when thinking back to the books.
