First: Thank you Goodreads First Reads for letting me read this book!

The concept of this book had me hooked from the beginning. And while such a concept makes a book slightly predictable, I was captivated from the first page.

The characters absolutely made this book for me. They captured my heart very early on, and the ending of the book was painful because I know it will be a while before I get to see them again. The love story is heartwarming and heartwrenching at the same time. I will definitely be getting the sequel the moment I can get my hands on it!

“I love you. Remember. They cannot take it”
Lauren Oliver, Delirium

Lauren Oliver
“It's so strange how life works: You want something and you wait and wait and feel like it's taking forever to come. Then it happens and it's over and all you want to do is curl back up in that moment before things changed.”
Lauren Oliver, Delirium

Lauren Oliver
“Love: It will kill you and save you, both”
Lauren Oliver, Delirium

Lauren Oliver
“And now I know why they invented words for love, why they had to: It's the only thing that can come close to describing what I feel in that moment, the baffling mixture of pain and pleasure and fear and joy, all running sharply through me at once.”
Lauren Oliver, Delirium

“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.”
Lauren Oliver, Delirium

Lauren Oliver
“Love: a single word, a wispy thing, a word no bigger or longer than an edge. That's what it is: an edge; a razor. It draws up through the center of your life, cutting everything in two. Before and after. The rest of the world falls away on either side.”
Lauren Oliver, Delirium
