Goodreads Summary

Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing. They didn’t understand that once 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 government demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Holoway 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.
The Skinny

It was engaging and crisp. One thing I love about Oliver is her directness, she knows what she wants to say and exactly how to say it! Delirium was oh-so-very inspiring to me and it reminded me why love IS worth it. The characters were superb and the romance was epic, period. The setting was perfect for this book and so was the jacket (beautiful)! Excellent Oliver, hats off to you! :)

genies: A good read. I enjoyed this book, not quite loved, but it 
isn't far off from being amazing.

The Truth And Nothing BUT...

Going by FTC guidelines, allow me to point out that all the novels reviewed on this blog were either bought by me, or given by an author or publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Those books received from Authors and Publishers will be stated clearly as such, as will the ones purchased by myself. There is no shady business going on; no coercion, bribery or compensation has or will ever be received in exchange for any reviews. These thoughts are mine, wacky as they may be, and my honest opinion is all you can truly expect. Still reading? You should be off checking out those awesome reviews ;)
