Ninety five days, 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 
delirium hasn’t touched me yet.

Still I worry.

They say 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.

You know when you pick up a book and you just can’t put it down? No matter how hard you try the book just stays glued to your hand? I have to admit Delirium was one of those amazing books! Set in the future when Love is considered a disease.
The Main Character Lena immediately drew me in and reminded me exactly  of my current best friend. She was a total stickler to the rules and  aimed to please, she is completely type A, and she couldn’t bear the thought of getting in trouble. However, as the book progresses I found 
her changing and loosening up as she became infected by the deliria. It began completely innocently almost by mistake; Alex couldn’t hurt her, he was cured… wasn’t he?
Slowly but surely she began breaking rules, sneaking out after curfew with her best friend Hana, and breaking curfew by herself. She listened to music banned by the city because it encouraged love, and she began to hang out with Alex. Soon she started feeling the symptoms of the disease, she felt light headed, and dizzy when he was around and her heart ached when he wasn’t. She should tell someone, get cured early, save herself from the disease, but she can’t. No one ever told her how good it felt! There was no danger he was 19 and he was cured….
She was happier than she had ever been before and she didn’t think anything could go wrong, until Alex told her he was one of theInvalids. A group of sympathisers that rebel against the government and resist the cure. After that everything Changes, what they’re doingis dangerous its against the law, and the penalty is punishment by death.
This is a MUST read, I loved it and read it in 3 days and Lauren Oliver is quickly becoming one of my favourite authors. I can’t even express how amazing this book is so you just have to find out for yourself.
Tell me what you think!
Till next time
