Goodreads Synopsis:
Ninety-five days, and then I’ll be safe. 

I wonder whether the procedure will hurt. 

I want to get it over with. 

It’s hard to be patient. 

It’s hard not to be afraid while I’m still uncured, though so far the deliria hasn’t touched me yet. 

Still, I worry. 

They say that in the old days, love drove people to madness. 

The deadliest of all deadly things: It kills you both when you have it and when you don’t

My Thoughts:
I was blown away by Delirium. All of the hype for this book is well worth it. Delirium is one of the most interesting and creative stories that I have read in a long time. This story is so riveting and original and you cannot help but stay glued to the pages.

Lauren is such a talented writer. She captivated me with her ability to make love such an inconceivable and horrible notion. To live in a world where you cannot experience the greatest treasure known to mankind made for one hell of a read!

I loved Lena and Alex. For Lena to be one of the most level headed and to be so set that going through with the procedure is the right thing to do, to come around and fall for the bad boy was amazing.

Delirium was an amazing read. With it's captivating storyline and believable character's and a must read plot. This is one of the best novel's that I have read!
