Waiting on Wednesday: Delirium by Lauren Oliver

Okay, so I read Lauren Olivers other book 'Before I fall' and I really loved it. So I'm hoping that I will like this one too. It's gotten some great reviews so i'm really really exited.

About the cover... I don't really like it. It took me a while to realize that there was a picture of a girl in the letters but still, I don't like the cover at all. I don't like the way it looks in general. The big, plain letters and that baby blue colour in the background.

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 governments 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.
