Dusty Reads (14)

Posted by

Dusty Reads is a weekly meme, hosted here, featuring a book that has been sitting unread on my home shelf for some time. To participate, add your link at the bottom.

My pick this week:

Delirium
Lauren Oliver
Released February, 20011

Goodreads / Purchase

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.

I know!! Me: the lover of all dystopians, have NOT read this one yet! *gasp*
What did you think of Delirium? Yay or Nay?

Canadian blogger, wife, mother, coffee lover, and sarcastic at heart! She has had a love for all things bookish since before Amazon and eReaders existed *le gasp*. You can also find her organizing tours and other fun things at Xpresso Book Tours.

    Honestly, I didn’t like this one as much as Before I Fall. Everyone seems to be in love with it, and I really liked it but it’s not up there with the best dystopians on my list.

    Lol, well I’m with you on that one! But then I’m just recently coming into the Dystopia genre! Still, I haven’t read it either. BUT I just got it for Christmas so now I’ll have to and I’m definitely excited!

    I felt like I was one of the only people who hadn’t read this book. Good to know that I am not alone. I am reading it now though. I like it, but it’s not blowing me away or anything. Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my TT. 🙂

    I haven’t read Delirium yet. I keep skipping the obvious reads with the intention of returning when the hype dies down, but there are always more books to read.
