Delirium
Delirium | Lauren Oliver
Lauren Oliver's powerful New York Times bestselling novel Deliriumthe first in a dystopian trilogypresents a world as terrifying as George Orwell's 1984 and a romance as true as Romeo & Juliet.In an alternate United States, love has been declared a dangerous disease, and the government forces everyone who reaches eighteen to have a procedure called the Cure. Living with her aunt, uncle, and cousins in Portland, Maine, Lena Haloway is very much looking forward to being cured and living a safe, predictable life. She watched love destroy her mother and isn't about to make the same mistakes.But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena meets enigmatic Alex, a boy from the Wilds who lives under the government's radar. What will happen if they do the unthinkable and fall in love?Delirium received starred reviews from Kirkus and School Library Journal, and was named a Best Book of the Year by USA Today, Kirkus, Amazon.com, YALSA, and the Chicago Public Library and was selected as one of NPR's Top 100 Best Ever Teen Novels.

The writing is good. The premise is interesting. I read a lot of YA. This one somehow felt *too* YA. But as it is YA, this is clearly a case of “it‘s the reader, not the book.”

megzlynn I read this years ago and it was a favorite of mine. I have wanted to reread it to see but I fear I would feel the same way. So I‘m just going to keep the good memories of it lol. 😂 3mo

Thank G for audiobooks! Before I stared listening to audiobooks, I would maybe read 2-3 books/month if I wasn‘t in a slump. Now I listen to books all the time on my way to/from work which has allowed me to get so much more reading in! I just finished Delirium today and I really liked it, but it seems to have mixed reviews. I just started the second book in the series and hopefully it‘s as good as the first. The narrator for it was awesome!

Still YA but a little more grounded. #audiobook

I may have dozed near the end but I did hear the ending haha. Interesting concept. And I love Sarah Drew‘s narration.

I really liked this. It seems an odd premise, but I went with it, and quite enjoyed it. I liked Lena‘s best friend, Hana, and her young cousin(?), Grace, although a bit more interaction with Grace might have been nice. Maybe one of the upcoming books in the series will have more about her? I will definitely be continuing

I bought this at a library book sale in Traverse City, Michigan when we were on vacation. We always go to book sales and independent book stores when we travel... doesn't everyone??

Zelma Of course! I can‘t go anywhere without leaving with a book. I seem to sniff out library sales and free bookshelves everywhere I go! 7mo

This was a dystopian love story. I enjoyed it although it would not be for everyone. Love is a disease and there is a cure. Do you want to be cured? ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Going into Delirium, I had not read any synopsis of the book. As it was a whim decision for me to read it. I had no idea it would be like this. It‘s an interesting concept. I‘m about 60% if the way through the Kindle book. Figured I‘d share some of my favorite quotes so far..

⭐️⭐️⭐️Delirium has been on by bookshelf for easily five years. I was in the mood for cheesy & finally cracked it open, but was surprised it wasn't as cheesy as hoped or expected. It's an interesting concept, a person wiped of the capability to love and feel love. It doesn't only touch on teenage relationships, but the love between friendships, family, becoming a mother. Cliffhanger warning! #review #delirium #dystopian

LazyLibrary @Centique I'm glad you mentioned this one. I own it, I've tried to read it a few times, but I have a hard time with the way it switches between her first name to using her last name, and back again, and sometimes in the same sentence. It drove me crazy but I WANT to read this book!!!! Does the author ever settle? 1y
LazyLibrary @Chellebearss No! I haven't but I've heard about it! So that's def an option for me!!! @BookwormAHN Ooohhhh I just looked it up and that sounds good too!!!! 1y
Centique @LazyLibrary hmmm. Not sure if she does! I found that her style grated with me for a couple of chapters and then I ”acclimatised” and began to enjoy it. It does have some rewards for perseverance if you can get past that! But yes, those things can break me away from a book too. 1y
Dragon It seems to me this was part of a trilogy I read a few years back. I liked the concept and enjoyed the book, but I‘m pretty easy to please with YA dystopian novels. 1y
MeganAnn 1/2 Delirium is on my TBR shelf, but it looks good! Some of my favorite urban fantasy series are the Hollows by Kim Harrison.. Book 1 is tagged 👇🏻 1y
MeganAnn 2/2: and the Anita Blake series by Laurell K. Hamilton.. Book 1 is tagged here. Both series are full of strong, kickass heroines, action and dramatic relationships just like you asked. (edited) 1y

With Delirium, Lauren Oliver has written a frightening tale of a world where the one thing that makes life worth living - love - is illegal. Readers will enjoy the development of Lena‘s character, watching her grow from an obedient member of an intolerant society to a young woman who goes after what she wants in life. Delirium is full of heart, passion, and terror, and will be cherished by anyone who loves a good dystopian novel or romance story.

#YAL #dystopia #2 It's not the best I've read, but also not the worst. It's reminiscent of Uglies and Unwind. The first half is unnecessarily long and detailed. I found myself doing a decent amount of skimming because it was obvious where the plot was going, but it was taking forever to get there. The 2nd half moved at a better pace. The premise of love as an epidemic needing cured is intriguing, but it's very predictable. #bookseries

@MaleficentBookDragon sent the most amazing #dystopianblues package!! ❤️All of these books look SO good and my husband has already said he's stealing 1984 (which is amazing because he doesn't read much). These socks are the coolest and the hand warmers you made are perfect, which didn't make it into the picture because I'm already wearing them - I LOVE hand warmers! 😍 Sweet treats, coffee and a yummy scented vanilla candle also. 👇🏻

MeganAnn @MaleficentBookDragon seriously thank you SO SO much! 😘😍 You have made my day and this entire box is just wonderful and perfect. Not to mention the WWE wrapping paper is pretty cool also 😉 2y

Gostei bastante do livro. Da ideia base dele, da forma como a autora descreve as coisas e, principalmente, os sentimos, da forma como a autora nos consegue deixar realmente a refletir sobre o amor e a vida, e de como seria a vida sem amor. Se quereria isso para mim. Mesmo sabendo que o amor também faz sofrer.
Porém achei que as coisas custaram um bocadinho a se desenrolar, apesar do livro tem fluido muito bem. A escrita é deliciosa!

I'll admit, this wasn't my favorite book. I'd heard good things about it, and so was very excited when I went into it, but it didn't quite reach my expectations. Despite that, it was still a good book. I haven't gotten around to finishing the series yet, but I intend to.

From: Laurenoliverbooks.com

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 18. Lena Holoway has always looked forward to the day when she‘ll be cured but before she can get her surgery she falls in love...

I know that I have already review this awesome book, but I have to tell you again how gorgeous this book is.
It is my favourite book because it has a great story and great caracters (Yes, I am talking about Alex. #AlexMyLove♡♡♡).
I have to tell you that I was so so angry and so sad at the end of the book, when Alex died that I could cry ALL day! I mean it! But after a half hour I stopped crying.
Any ways, you really should read it!

If you're looking for a high-octane thrill ride, this probably isn't the book for you. This treatise on love is a slow, pensive story, with savory, haunting prose. I liked this unexpected version of YA dystopia - the heroine's internal reflections, & chilling depictions of indifference. I especially enjoyed how relatable Lena was, because of her mental health struggles. Girls who struggle with anxiety & depression can topple evil regimes too!★★★★☆
