If I thought Perfect Chemistry was a Romeo and Juliet story, Delirium is Romeo and Juliet x10! Who wants to live in a world without love? Without the frustrations, anticipations, expectations, or annoyances? Lena was brought up in a world where love was a bad thing, a curse, and it was something to be avoided.

Lena was counting down the days until she turned 18, when she would get the procedure that would cure her of love - she would never have to feel the evil love effects and can start her life with a partner that was chosen for her based on statistics of a test she took.

Life was going great for Lena; that is, until she met Alex. Mysterious, older, handsome: Lena didn't know what hit her when she met Alex. She denied the signs indicating that she was starting to fall in love. She tried to avoid Alex, but it was like a magnetic force always brought them together...

This is under the cover for
the hardback book! (Take a
look at the above photo now
- You'll definitely see her face!)
I absolutely loved this book! It is completely different than Lauren Oliver's other book Before I Fall, but this dystopian novel shows a common, every day feeling that our society finds accepting as a curse - something that NO ONE should ever give into because it will eventually kill the people who find love.

Also, I just saw on Goodreads that it's a series! The second book, Pandemonium, comes out March 6th, 2012 (a year?!? Boo!!). I might have to reread this book before the sequel comes out - it's just one of those books that you'll want to reread again :) Kinda like the City of Bones series by Cassandra Clare... But I definitely recommend this book to all of my friends!
