Delirium by Lauren Oliver

I have had so much homework these last few days. I've stayed up to 10, just doing homework. I usually go to bed at 9:30....I do like my sleep. So thankfully I hardly have any homework so I was able to get this review up!

Title: Delirium

Author: Lauren Oliver

Recieved via NetGalley

Rating: 5 stars

Review: Lena has always listened to what the government has told the people. Wether it be about music, clothes or love. All Lena wants is to he cured of love, she looks forward to the day where she will get her procedure done. But as Lena's procedure date comes closer and closer Lena finds herself falling in love and breaking every rule she's ever known.

I had very high expectations for Delirium, especially after reading Before I Fall. And I am thrilled to say my expectations were met!
Lauren Oliver is a great writer. Everything she writes is so beautiful and just so perfect. Every word has it's own special place and wholly belongs there. This was one of the things that blew me away in her previous book and blew me away even more in this one.

Delirium was one of those books that I just loved, everything clicked with me and flowed great. I can't think of very many words to even describe how I felt!

I loved, loved, loved Lena and Alex. I found myself rooting for them and I  had to know if they'd be ok and safe. I even found myself smacking my head a couple if times when I thought something was stupid or was just plain mad.

This book sent me through a whirlwind if emotions, and many books don't make you feel very many emotions. Thank you Lauren Oliver for making me feel grateful that I live in a time where I am loved and appreciated.

I'm having a terrible love hate relationship with the end of the made me cry and I don't usually cry.


I am praying that Lena doesn't fall in love with another guy out in the Wilds, that would just be plain terrible! I will always love Alex. I'm even hoping that he isn't dead. He just can't be! I'm starting to tear up!


This is one great book that needs to be read by all and it will always be a favorite of mine.

Special Thanks to NetGalley and Harper Teen!
