This weeks question comes from

Katy of Vision Quest Fail

"What is the book you are currently 'pushing'? (Pushing mean trying to get people to read it)"


I'm not really pushing anything. I read what interests me and review it with my thoughts so that my followers will what I think about a book they are looking into.

This week's question comes from :  Alex who blogs at Geek on the Brink:
"What are you reading now and why are you reading it?"

I Just finished Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton, I got it from Simon & Schuster to review and it looked awesome so I decided to read it next from my TBR pile. I was not dissapointed.

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.

I hate having to admit that I kinda had a hard time connecting to DELIRIUM at first, I found myself getting distracted by other things and putting the book down a lot. However in saying that Delirium is very beautifully written and grew on me as the story went on.  The main character Lena starts off like everyone else, following rules, wanting to be "cured" of the disease of Amor Deliria Nervosa (aka Love) only to fall and love. The connection between Lena and Alex comes off heartfelt and strong. The characters grow on you and you find yourself wanting to know more about them. The ending ends on a bit of a cliffhanger but not so big of one that your left wanting a true ending. Delirium is the first novel in a trilogy and I cant wait to see what happens next in PANDEMONIUM.

I gave it 4/5 stars
