by Lauren Oliver
Ninety-five days, and then she'll be safe. She'll finally be cured from deliria. Love is the cause of suicide, heartbreak, and madness or so her society says. Lena along with everyone else is taught that love is a disease and that they will be cured by having surgery at 18 and they can finally be cured citizens. Something happens that changes Lena's perception on what love really is. Is deliria really as bad as it seems?

My Review
Okay, so hear me out. Before I tell you why I didn't like this book, I'll tell you some of its good aspects. It was well written and I think the author's idea was great. A world without love really makes you think. So when I started reading I was really enjoying it. After a while it got really slow and the romance got more in depth The author was very descriptive as I said before, but when it comes to romance I'd like it be brief. I would of much rather learned more about their society than their lovey-dovey relationship.

 I actually stopped reading it. That's something I try to never do. That's like, an unwritten rule in the book for bookworms, but I had to break it. It got to a part where the romance got a little gross. So I just abruptly stopped. I was really disappointed in this book. I was so depressed to see the book that I had so many high hopes for not be good at all.
 Remember that this is just my opinion, so if you like this book, that's totally fine.
 It just wasn't the book for me.

Romance: Yes, read above for detail.  
Violence: Slow-running but it can be violent.
Language:  Yes!
 Genre: Sci-fi, Alternate Society, Romance.
Age: 12 and up.

Two stars.


  1. I actually loved Delirium but I understand where you are coming from. There was a lot of romance and there was actually quite a bit of language.

    1. Yeah, we all have our own opinion. Some books I really enjoy and then there are others that I just can't get into. :)

  2. I read delirium too but I didn't finish either. The story just didn't grab my attention much

  3. I didn't like that book. It's like Cinderella waiting for her Prince Charming. No storng female lead at all.

    1. Yeah, Lena seemed really weak to me and easily swayed. Probably the main reason I didn't like the book was that I didn't really like the main character.
