Backlistblast friday – Delirium!

About the meme:

Blacklist blast is created by Milana from A couple reads and Flavia from Flavia the bibliophile! It is meant to talk about blacklist books, books that were published 6 months ago or earlier. This to remind ourselves why we wanted to read the book in the first place, or to share our feelings towards an old(er) favourite. 

Title: Delirium
Author:  Lauren Oliver
Genre: YA dystopian
Release day: February 3rd 2011


In an alternate United States, love has been declared a dangerous disease, and the government forces everyone who reaches eighteen to have a procedure called the Cure. Living with her aunt, uncle, and cousins in Portland, Maine, Lena Haloway is very much looking forward to being cured and living a safe, predictable life. She watched love destroy her mother and isn’t about to make the same mistake.

But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena meets enigmatic Alex, a boy from the “Wilds” who lives under the government’s radar. What will happen if they do the unthinkable and fall in love?

Why I choose this book:

It’s been a while since I read this book, in Dutch, but I actually really enjoyed it. In my opinion it was enjoyable and quick read! But of course there are more books with similar themes. But I think people should read this book, especially the first book.
