Books received for review

DELIRIUM
(Delirium #1)
by Lauren Oliver
Source: Blogger trade

Original cover art version! So excited to snag a copy of this! Here's an article on how they chose the final cover art.

Love. It kills you both when you have it and when you don't.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, and happy.


But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: she falls in love.


Lauren Oliver, author of the incandestent New York Times bestseller Before I Fall, shows us a world as terrifying as The Hunger Games and a romance as true as Romeo and Juliet.

WITHER
(Chemical Garden Trilogy #1)
by Lauren DeStefano
Source: Blogger trade

In the not-too-distant future, because of genetic engineering, every human is a ticking time bomb - males only live to age twenty-five, and Females only live to age twenty. To keep the population from dying out, girls are kidnapped and sold into polygamous marriages.

When sixteen-year-old Rhine is taken, she enters a world of wealth and privilege that both entices and terrifies her. She has everything she ever wanted - except freedom. With the help of Gabriel, a servant Rhine is growing dangerously attracted to, Rhine attempts to escape before it is too late.
