Waiting on Wednesday: Delirium

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event held by Breaking the Spine.  This event features books that we can’t wait to be released!

This week, I am waiting on…

Delirium by Lauren Oliver

Now I know that I have a long time to wait but just wait till you read the Goodreads synopsis:

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 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.

My take: Dystopian literature?  A love story?  Author Lauren Oliver?  Yes please!  I can hardly contain my excitement.  I know that I am going to be counting down the days until I can get my hands on this.

What are you waiting on?

PS.  I have fully updated my Top 10 Favorites page.  Check it out :)

About Jen

For as long as I can remember, I have loved to read. I have always viewed words as having a magical quality-able to transport, illuminate and inspire. I was able to parlay this love of reading into a career as a language arts teacher and am able to encourage students every day to find books that “speak” to them. I decided to blog about the books I read because books are meant to be shared and discussed. 🙂
