[Book Review] Delirium by Lauren Oliver

Delirium (Delirium #1)Delirium

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. 

t'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.


Re-read January 2014 - because it's just so good!

After years of loving Delirium and re-reading it now, I realized that I never fully finished the book. And now I am sitting here after being finished with the book and don’t even know what to say. The love, the pain, the shock, and the raw feelings from this story broke my heart all over again.

“I know that the whole point—the only point—is to find the things that matter, and hold on to them, and fight for them, and refuse to let them go.”

Best part about experiencing this book as Audiobook – the great narrator. Sarah Drew really outdid herself and really made my heart flutter with the expressions. There are no more words that I can say which can tell how beautiful and absolutely perfect this was. Turns out I suck at positive review because I am so overwhelmed with emotions but seriously guys - it’s amazing

“It's amazing how words can do that, just shred your insides apart. Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me - such bullshit.”
