Waiting on Wednesday!

Waiting on Wednesday


Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, and it's purpose is to spotlight those titles we can't wait for!

After I saw Lori's vlog over at Pure Imagination this book was instantly moved up to a must read of 2011. I can't wait!!

Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing. They didn’t understand that once love -the deliria- blooms in your blood, there is no escaping its hold. Things are different now. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the governments demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Holway has always looked forward to the day when she’ll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy.

But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: She falls in love.

What are you waiting on?

I can't wait for Delirium either!! I read Lauren Oliver's other book, Before I Fall earlier this year and loved it! When I heard about this one and read the description I was so excited!

Christina said...

I have yet to read Before I Fall! I really need and I definitely will very soon.

Have a great week reading!

Nice pick! The cover is kind of cool. My picks are at The Crowded Leaf.

Colleen said...

This looks like such a great read!

I recently purchased Before I Fall, haven't read it yet, but based on all the reviews I've been reading it must be awesome. Now this cover looks wonderful and the description is as well, I believe it's going to be another hit. :)

That's an interesting twist. I'll have to check this one out. Thanks for sharing this! The book that I am looking forward to is a non-fiction read by author Chris St. Hilaire called, "27 Powers of Persuasion." It comes out in September and I can't wait. The author addresses how to assess your own ego and make your weaknesses your strengths while at the same time showing you the most effective way to deal with opposition. My kind of book!

Jessica said...

Fabulous pick! This is on my radar as well and I can't wait to read it!

I am reading this right now!!! I had high hopes for Before I Fall but it was only okay for me. But this one is great so far!!

Brenda said...

I got an advance copy of 27 Powers of Persuasion. It's the best non-fiction book on being persuasive I've read. Unlike many books by professors in the field, this one's from a practioner and it's terrific.
