Waiting on Wednesday (76)--Delirium by Lauren Oliver

Release Date: February 1, 2011 from HarperCollins


Ninety-five days, and 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 deliria hasn't touched me yet. Still, I worry. They say that 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.

Lauren Oliver astonished readers with her stunning debut, Before I Fall. In a starred review, Publishers Weekly called it "raw, emotional, and, at times, beautiful. An end as brave as it is heartbreaking." Her much-awaited second novel fulfills her promise as an exceptionally talented and versatile writer.

Before I Fall was an amazing read and I absolutely cannot wait for this one! Luckily I have about a million other books to keep me occupied until February.


  1. I'm so looking forward to Delirium :) Great choice!

    I haven't yet read Before I Fall but I own a copy and I hope to read it soon(everyone seems to love it).

  2. I cannot wait for this one either. All the reviews I have read so far have been terrific, and I really loved Oliver's writing in Before I Fall. Great pick!

  3. I enjoyed this book. I hope you will as well once you get your hands on it.

    Today I posted a review of a grand Steampunkery Book!  Please do check it out, I highly recommend Vampire Empire: The Greyfriar if you want Steampunkery and a mix of many genres.  A new favorite... indeed a huggable book!
