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 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.

The first word that comes to mind--perhaps because of the Delirium title--is delicious. Yes, I think this book is going to be positively scrumptious. *
Not only is it dystopian, but it's by Lauren Oliver, who wrote that very famous book Before I Fall. Really, I'm just looking forward to this book to see if Oliver continues with the flowy writing that I can't puzzle out because it's so purposely unobtrusive. And also, the premise definitely hooked me in.
Release Date: February 1st 2011
*so maybe I'm hungry--but for good books! And psst, chocolate.
