Waiting on Wednesday: Delirium by Lauren Oliver

Delirium by Lauren Oliver
Published February 2011

 I feel like this book has been out for ages because all I've seen recently are reviews for it. I actually think this will be more my thing than Lauren's first book which I did enjoy.


Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing. They didn’t understand that one love -the deliria- blooms in your blood, there is no escaping its hold. Things are different now. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the governments demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Holway has always looked forward to the day when she’ll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy.

But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: She falls in love.

There have been awful lot of reviews for it already, I hope it lives up to everyone's expectations (it did for me!) I was recently sent a finished copy and the cover is even prettier in person.
