Delirium (Delirium, #1) by Lauren Oliver

Title: Delirium (Delirium, #1)
Author: Lauren Oliver
Publisher: HarperTeen
Date Published: February 1st 2011
Genre: Young Adult, Dystopia
My Rating: 


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.

My Review

NO LOVE. WOW. I seriously loved the idea of this book! Even though I felt there was something missing for me to rate this book a five star, just the theme is so incredibly fascinating that it makes up for most of it. Throughout the whole book I couldn’t stop thinking “What if love really is a disease!?” Oliver is such a talented author. I really liked the characters most of all Alex, have to love that guy! I did not like the main character, Lena at the beginning of the story, let’s just say she was really close minded, but no one can blame her, when you are raised thinking one way about life it isn’t easy changing your ways.

I will be honest though, I did expect this story to be very different.

If you already read this book you are going to hate me but I actually liked the ending! It was different!

I Am Number Four (Lorien Legacies #1) by Pittacus Lore

Title: I Am Number Four (Lorien Legacies #1)
Author: Pittacus Lore
Publisher: HarperCollins
Date Published: August 3rd 2010
Genre: YA, Sci-fi
My Rating: 


In the beginning they were a group of nine. Nine aliens who left their home planet of Lorien when it fell under attack by the evil Mogadorian. Nine aliens who scattered on Earth. Nine aliens who look like ordinary teenagers living ordinary lives, but who have extraordinary, paranormal skills. Nine aliens who might be sitting next to you now.

The Nine had to separate and go into hiding. The Mogadorian caught Number One in Malaysia, Number Two in England, and Number Three in Kenya. All of them were killed. John Smith, of Paradise, Ohio, is Number Four. He knows that he is next.

I Am Number Four is the thrilling launch of a series about an exceptional group of teens as they struggle to outrun their past, discover their future—and live a normal life on Earth.


My Review

A very Mysterious book that I enjoyed reading.

I read this book because the movie was going to come out. And to get this out of the way, yes the book was better but the movie was still pretty good!

This was a pretty easy book to get into. I am not going to say this was the best book ever because it wasn’t but it was good enough that I do recommend it and there are a lot of books out there that you will read and in the middle of the story get bored of it or what not but this story was not like that at all, it was well written and it catches your attention. It was suspenseful and full of surprises!

I do believe he should have been older, I don’t know why him being only 15 years old bothers me a little. That is really my only complain.

By the way I love number six! And if you didn’t already know, this is a series and book two is coming out in August, which I am really excited about!
