Delirium


Synopsis from goodreads:

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.

Delirium leaves the readers with lingering feelings of both sadness and hope; it will stay with them long after the last page is turned.


My Review: It's not often you find a book that you generally enjoy from the first page to the last. This book had me turning pages faster then I could read because I was so intrigued with figuring out if Lean was going to have her procedure to get rid of the dreaded disease "love" or follow her heart and let love take her over and fall for Alex. It's a gripping story with wonderful character development, a realistic setting and the hope that love really is the greatest thing you'll ever learn. 

A must read for those that believe in love, enjoyed reading The Uglies or Matched series or just want a good read =]
