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.

Katie's Thoughts : 

Im going to try to keep this short and to the point.. after all it is only a 64 page Novella.

I did enjoy reading Hana, it gave me alot of insight into what was going on with Hana. I felt super duper sad reading this book. Hana and Lena's relationship was not at all what i thought it was after reading Delirium. There was alot going on with Hana's life at this point; she thought she was in love, was kissed for the first time, and even felt some heartbreak, yet Lena never knew about this. NOT AT ALL.  In Delirium i thought Lena's and Hana's relationship as friends was so strong, but now after seeing what happened thorough Hana's eyes im just not sure. In the end Hana seemed overwhelmed with jelousy for her "friend" Lena ... im not really sure what happened..

Im not the world's best at picking up clues in stories sometimes, so fellow bloggers and avid readers, if you read Hana answer me this:   Am i  supposed to assume that Hana called in the raid that caught Lena and Alex ? .. and if so... woah!

Overall i think it was a good quick read, i can't really complain with 64 pages ! I will definitely be reading the other Novellas to come featuring the POV's of Annabel and Raven.. and i even hear there is talks about Alex having his own as well.

Please let me know what your thoughts are if you have read Hana!


  1. Yup I believe that is exactly what you're supposed to think. I don't really like when vital information such as that is included in an "bonus" novella, but I think it did help shed some light on how things went. This wasn't my favorite, but I did read it and I'm glad I did. I always did think Hana & Lena's friendship was a little rocky though, so I wasn't super-upset to discover that Hana had kept things from Lena.

    1. uugghh your right, that is vital information that people have to know about. i can't imagine reading requiem and not knowing that.. changes everything. yeah your right their relationship wasnt amazing.. very one sided ! thanks for the post and helping me clear some things up ! ~ Katie

  2. Another series that I have not read and am trying to get to. I don't usually read the point fives anyway, but I have to read Delirium and go from there. I am sure if I am fan girl enough, I will make an exception. Thanks for your review.

    1. i don't normally read them either, but you would be surprised what crucial information is in this novella. it really is almost too important to put in a novella . but yes step one is read delirium for sure. hope you get to read it soon. enjoy!! - Katie
