My Mini-Review, Full review will come closer to release date:
Lena's story of love is so powerful it will forever have a place in my heart. The last book that I read that has impacted me so much was The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks. Both books are tear jerkers. I found myself at least holding back tears twice throughout the novel. Only towards/at the end I had to put the book down run to the bathroom to cry privately. Lauren Oliver has written a book so beautifully you will often find yourself checking to make sure you are, in fact, reading a book. She paints such a vivid and clear picture of Lena's world you could actually feel like you are in Lena's head or there with her. Man, I'm finding it extremely difficult to write a mini review for this book, I just want to get very detailed and write that full review already! Anyways its really scary to think what if our government decided to right now find a cure for love and say that we can no longer love anything. I'd find it devastating if I was not able to love my life, family, friends, books, and my pets. In delirium, Lena finds out that there is a whole other world that has been kept secret from her and it opens her eyes to reality. Lena is a strong female protagonist and I was rooting for her and Alex all the way till the end. Delirium has made me grateful that I can love others and things and be able to do what I want. Added bonus is that I never saw anything in this book coming. Usually almost all books are a little predictable, but everything came as a surprise. In my opinion Delirium is just as amazing, if not better, than Lauren's debut Before I Fall. If you have not read Before I Fall buy it now. If you have not pre-ordered Delirium then pre-order NOW! I could sit here and talk all day about Delirium, but until my full review this will have to do.
