Review: White Walls

Author: Lauren Hammond
Release Date: 6/25/2012
Genre: New Adult
Series: The Asylum Trilogy

Summary From B&N.com: 
Adelaide Carmichael knows that she's lost her mind.
She's aware that she's being sent to The Oakhill Institution, but she's been told that she's being sent there to get better. She's been told that the staff is there to help.
And it doesn't take Adelaide long to discover that she was very, very wrong about The Oakhill Institution. Patients roam the halls like zombies. Electric currents vibrate through the plaster walls. Patients are fed sedatives like mashed potatoes and now Adelaide knows one thing for sure, she wants out.
And she'll do whatever she can to escape.

My Review:
White Walls is just as insanely amazing as Insanity. This book is not better or worse then Insanity, but It makes the series better. The before and after chapters in this book blend together so perfectly.  

The before chapters in this book are about the first time Addy goes to Oakhill. Oakhill is creepier reading about it a second time, just the way things are is just so sad. The after chapters about how Addy escapes from Oakhill and how she meets Elijah.

I loved the Elijah/Addy pairing. I thought I wouldn't like because of what Addy had with Damien, but I loved it they are so perfect for each other. In the after parts of the book Addy becomes a new stronger freer version of herself. At the beginning of the book Elijah is cold and not open, but throughout the book he opens up and you learn so much more about him.

This series traps you in it, and it takes you on a wonderfully insane ride. They are just so beautifully written and emotion filled. They leave you wanting more.

Lauren Hammond is a brilliant writer and if you haven't read any of her books you should. I completely loved this book and it was a great addition to the series. I can't wait for the third and final book in this series.
