Synopsis via Goodreads
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 Holoway 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.


Noteworthy Passages

Hana; pg. 23
"You can't be really happy unless you're unhappy sometimes. You know that, right?"

Lena; pg. 192
My stomach gets that hollowed out feeling. 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.

Alex; pg. 228
"I hated it here. I hated it here so much you can't even imagine. All the buildings and the people looking so dazedand the smells and the closeness of everything and the rules--rules everywhere you turned, rules and walls, rules and walls. I wasn't used to it. I felt like I was in a cage. We are in a cage: a bordered cage."

I had so many favorite quotes listed to choose from so I decided on the variety pack: one from Lena, one from Alex, and one from Hana. Delirium was definitely a noteworthy read. To find out more on my thoughts, check out my Review.

And as always, thanks for stopping by.









PLEASE NOTE: This is a feature hosted here at my blog in which I present you with selected passages or quotes that I deem Noteworthy from a book I've just reviewed. My hopes are of course, that these passages will make you want to pick the book up and read it. This feature was started and created by me in January in hopes of making my blog more unique. That being said, I would like to kindly request that you do not use this feature as it was intended to be for my blog only and is not a meme. If you see some one else using it, please know it is without my permission. Thank you.
