"Waiting On" Wednesday (4)

We're already at my fourth WoW post! These are so much fun to do :) Plus they help me find some pretty awesome books! This little post is a fun weekly meme started by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. Anyone can participate. Basically, all you have to do is choose a book that's coming out in the next few months or so that you're excited to read! So here's what I came across this week. I found it on Goodreads. I love that website. I shouldn't have made an account. I waste all my free time browsing the books on there now! But it did help me find this 2011 book...


Delirium by Lauren Oliver
Release Date: February 1st, 2011


Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing. They didn’t understand that one 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 Holway 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.

Um, ok, that sounds majorly good!! I'm discovering something about myself, based on the books I like, the books that look good to me, and the new books coming out that I'm waiting for.

I love dystopia books.

Dystopia is the opposite of utopia. Apparently it can be characterized by a totalitarian government...but that form of literature includes books such as: The Hunger Games, The Uglies series, Matched, and other books like that. Like, sci-fi, futuristic novels and stuff.

So this book definitely fits into that "dystopia" category. I mean seriously. A "cure" for love? And... I'm really excited about it. This one isn't coming out til February of next year!

Ooh, I love dystopian fiction, too! Not the science-fiction/fantasy/creepy stuff, but the alternate-society stuff. This one sounds awesome -- thanks for bringing it to my attention! I'm sure we've all wished for a "cure" for love at some point...
