Teaser Tuesday 5
Teaser Tuesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Should Be Reading.
The idea is to:
Grab the book you are currently reading
Open it up to a random page
Share two Teaser sentences
Give the name and author of said book
And remember No Spoilers!
That's right I've finally gotten around to reading Delirium by Lauren Oliver. I won an arc from Jess at Jess Hearts Books (Thank You Jess!) a few weeks a go and I have now just started reading it. I should have a review up later this week.
"Breaking curfew is one thing; listening to unapproved music is even worse. But breaking segregation laws is one of the worst offences there is."
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 government demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Haloway 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.
That's all for now.
