Waiting on Wednesday: Delirium by Lauren Oliver

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted at Breaking the Spine.
Here's my pick for this week:

Title: Delirium
Author: Lauren Oliver
Release Date: Feb 1 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.

Oh my gosh. I have nothing to say. So excited for this book! I absolutely loved Before I Fall (see my review here) which is also by Lauren Oliver. I cannot wait to read this one! It's set in a dystopian world, and I love books like that. The summary sounds amazing and it's going to be so awesome!'s a trilogy. I love when amazing books have two more amazing books to follow them up with! I can't wait for this whole series.
