Wishlist Wednesday: Delirium by Lauren Oliver

Wednesday, July 14, 2010 |
Release Date: February 1st, 2011
Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing. They didn’t understand that one 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 governments demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Holway 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.


Okay, so I'm unsure as to whether the cover for Delirium has been released yet, but I've been unable to find it online. I *think* I saw the cover uploaded from a personal photo on an ARC tour site. Anyway, I remember it was quite breathtaking. I have yet to read Oliver's other book, Before I Fall, but when I read the synopsis for this one, I knew that she was an author to watch. I'm really interested in books that deal with government regulation of emotion or personal rights, and I would say that Delirium definitely falls into that category.

Plus, I love the name Lena. I'm not exactly sure why, but I always end up rooting for characters with the name. It all started with The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, I'm sure. :)
