NaNoWriMo and Delirium (in other words, why I haven't posted)

I have been (almost) busy writing, and doing schoolwork, and watching other people talk about their novels on YouTube. 

Oh, and the word sprints. 

And also, this book:

I LOVED this book (SPOILER: It had a really crummy ending. I'm not kidding). It was so well written, and I fell in love with the characters-- especially Hana (pronounced, like, Hannah. So I like her).

I stayed up for three nights straight reading it. And when it was over, I wanted to stay up more nights, reading more of it.

That's what makes a good book. It's something that makes you want more. Makes you want to read, and stay up late every night for it.

4.5 stars. Well done, Lauren Oliver.

OMG!!! The ending was soooooooo sad!!!!!!!!! Ugh!

I was so sad when she made you think he's dead!! I swear to god if she killed him off I will be, like so SAD!!!!!! And then angry at her!!! He deserves to live! No joke, after reading the ending, i went to my reading notebook and drew a gigantic frowning face and scribbled over it again and again Alex is not dead, he can't be dead! Her first love can not be dead! He is still alive! Because, I totally fell in love with him! when she made you think he was dead (not admiting he died!) I cried, that's how attached I was with him!

I cried too.

Yeah, if he's not dead, though, he's probably cured, and was thrown into level six in the Crypts. Which is equally bad. :(
