Hi there! Are you getting excited for Requiem? Do you love pulling books apart to find foreshadowing and deeper meaning? Well, I’ve got a post for you! Below I have compiled some quotes from Delirium and Pandemonium, courtesy of Goodreads.com. After each quote, I’ve added a bit of my own speculation about what the quote could mean. Please add your thoughts and arguments in the comments!
Case for Lena and Julian
“You came from different starts and you’ll come to different ends.” -Delirium, Lauren Oliver
Since Lena said this in Delirium, which focused on her relationship with Alex, you could interpret this as a hint that Lena and Alex will go their separate ways at the end.
“The past is nothing but a weight. It will build inside of you like a stone.” -Delirium, Lauren Oliver
If Lena and Alex’s history is nothing but a weight, is that really something she wants to resurrect? Maybe being with Julian would be easier on her heart.
“That’s when you really lose people, you know.When the pain passes.” -Delirium, Lauren Oliver
Has Lena already lost Alex, since, believing Alex is dead, she started to love Julian?
“I need him to know that I came for him. I need him to know that somehow, at some point in the tunnels, I began to love him.” -Pandemonium, Lauren Oliver
There is no denying that Lena loves Julian strongly. What we’ll find out in Requiem is which love is stronger: her love for Alex or her love for Julian.
