I'd Like to Introduce You to...

Lauren Oliver books.

I just happened to be finishing up with a book when I stumbled upon someone's blog (I'm sorry I forgot who's blog it was) about favorite books. I love hearing what other people are reading because although I'm an avid reader I never know what to read next. One of the books was called Delirium by Lauren Oliver and I bought it for my Kindle right then and there. I had no idea what it was about. I didn't even know it was considered to be a young adult novel. (Who cares?! I loved Harry Potter and the Hunger Games). This  was book one in a three-part series and lucky enough for me the second book came out last week! I already finished it! It is the story of Lena, a girl fighting with the thought of having to be "cured" of the disease they call Love. This is not a love story. This is a story of perseverance. Check out this trailer for the first book.

This book is interesting because, we are surrounded by love and all types of passionate feelings all day every day. In the time of these books - those feelings would sentence you to severe consequences. I Loved the first book and was so excited to start the second book, Pandemonium - (SPOILERS in this link).

This series takes place into the future during a time when they consider Love and strong feelings to be a disease.  I would love (haha) to go into the two books more but, I really think you should check them out for yourself. The third book is called Requiem and comes out Spring 2013.
