Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver

Book two is a surprising sequel

In December, I blogged about NPR's list of the top five fantasy and sci-fi novels of 2011, and how happy I was that Delirium -- a YA dystopian novel that was easily one of my favorite books that I read during the year, out of all genres -- made it onto the list.  So when Pandemonium came out a few months ago, it went right onto my reading list, and I read it as soon as I was able.  I was surprised by how different it was from the first book, and by how much I liked it, despite the differences.
