Bumped by Megan Mcafferty (from NetGalley)
When Melody is finally matched with the world-famous, genetically flawless Jondoe, both girls’ lives are changed forever. A case of mistaken identity takes them on a journey neither could have ever imagined, one that makes Melody and Harmony realize they have so much more than just DNA in common.
I'm so excited to get this one because I'm interviewing the author for A Cornucopia of Dystopia hosted by A Tapestry Of Words and The Bookish Type. I have got one book from Net Galley before and found it really hard to read it on the computer so it didn't work out but this time I'm determined to get to the end. Also, I'm hoping to get a Kindle for my birthday in late April so it should be a lot easier then!
Delirium by Lauren Oliver
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'm reviewing this one for the A Cornocupia of Dystopia event and I know there was so much hype around the blogosphere that some people were left disappointed but I loved it and was left feeling 'wow' by the end of the book, mainly because of Lauren Oliver's writing. You'll have to wait until my review to find out more!
