Love is a Disease in Delirium

What if love was a disease? What if you were forced to be cured from it once you turned 18 years old? What if you were assigned your spouse after taking a test? Well, that's what society is like in America in the dystopian novel Delirium. In 95 days, Lena will be cured of love forever & she cannot wait. That is until she falls in love....

In January, I got a Goodreads account. For those of you that don't know what Goodreads is, check it out! I highly recommend getting one especially if you love to read like I do. It gives book recommendations based on books that you have already read. So far, for me, those recommendations have yet to disappoint. One book recommendation was Delirium. It caught my attention right away and I requested it. It took me about a week to read but only because of schoolwork. It was truly hard to concentrate on that schoolwork because the book was so hard to put down! A day after I finished reading it, I entered to win the sequel, Pandemonium, on the Delirium Trilogy Facebook Page. A day after that, I received an e-mail notifying me that I was one of that week's five winners! (YAY!) I was so excited! I had been having a lousy week and receiving that e-mail made my week! Then, after a long, exhausting wait, my ARC (Advanced Reader's Copy) came in the mail. I was so pumped! (For those of you who don't know what an ARC is, check out Veronica Roth's blog post. She goes into full details of what they are.)
My Pandemonium ARC!

So, after finishing a really good book, a book that you feel in love with, one you just couldn't put down, one where you grow emotionally attached to the characters, do you tend to notice the names of characters everywhere you go? Well, that happened to me after finishing Delirium. After I finished it, I seemed to notice the main male character's name everywhere. Noticing it everywhere made me happy.

Anyways, I would highly recommend this trilogy if you:
Yup, it's an ARC & not for sale
a) Like dystopia
b) Wonder what life would be like without love
c) Like a forbidden romance
d) Like romance in general

If you selected any of the above, read these books! They are amazing. They are very hard to put down and the endings will leave you wanting more! I'm already looking forward to reading the third and final book Requiem to find out what happens! I definitely recommend this trilogy!

Like I said in my previous post, expect to see more posts about this awesome trilogy. I will probably write a post later this summer about what I predict will happen in Requiem.
PS-Did all of you notice my awesome Insurgent countdown widget that's on the right?


  1. I'm glad to hear that you LOVE this series! I read Delirium but I still haven't read Pandemonium. Since you said that they keep you wanting more, I might just wait until the last book comes out so that I won't have to wait! :)


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time to comment. It means a lot. Just please do NOT post spoilers in them. Thanks!!
