really liked it
bookshelves: young-adult, dystopian

In a world where love is disease and people are 'cured' when they are of age, Delirium is a unique twist on the YA dystopian genre. Instead of focusing on the world building, this title is full of heart-pounding action.

I quite enjoyed Delirium and the characters that formed it. While the writing was engaging, the story unique and with great character development, it wasn't a full 5 stars for me due to a slightly predictable plot. If love is a disease, and Lena is supposed to get cured in a few short months, it's almost inevitable that she meets a guy that she falls in love with. However, it is written in such a way that it makes you want to keep reading.

One of the more enjoyable reads I've experienced in the YA genre, and I definitely recommend it. Will be reading the sequel in the near future.
