For my first time participating in the “Waiting on” Wednesday meme, I had to choose the book that is on the the top of my most anticipated list!
Author: Lauren Oliver
Publication Date: February 1 2011
Genre: YA Dystopia
Description from the publisher:
In Lauren Oliver’s stunning second novel, love has been declared a dangerous disease, and the government forces everyone who reaches eighteen to have a procedure called the cure. Lena Haloway is very much looking forward to being cured and living a safe, predictable life. But then she meets enigmatic Alex, who lives under the government’s radar. What will happen if they do the unthinkable and fall in love?
Lauren Oliver follows up her incandescent debut, the New York Times bestseller Before I Fall, with this extraordinary novel about a high-stakes romance set in a dystopian United States. Delirium presents a world as terrifying as The Hunger Games and a romance as true as Romeo and Juliet.
Lauren Oliver’s first novel Before I Fall is one of my favorite books that I read this year, and I have been excited to read Ms. Oliver’s follow up. Delirium has generated great early buzz and I can’t wait to read it for myself.
