Upcoming: Delirium by Lauren Oliver

I hope you all have already read my review of the full-of-awesomeness Lauren Oliver's debut novel Before I Fall. But, if you haven't, I'm sure you have at least heard of this. And, well, there's another book by the amazing Lauren Oliver coming on February 2st, 2011 already -- DELIRIUM (HarperTeen) and I'm more than happy to introduce you this.

They say that the cure for love will make me happy and safe forever. And I’ve always believed them.

Until now.

Now everything has changed. Now, I’d rather be infected with love for the tiniest sliver of a second than live a hundred years suffocated by a lie.

Lauren Oliver’s powerful second novel is a stunning tale of star-crossed romance, set in a world where love is forbidden.

Synopsis (from the ARC): 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.
I also hope most of you get the opportunity of reading this book, which I'm very excited to. By the way, you can win an ARC from Rebecca from Vicarious Reader if you go there on her blog and get your entries. The giveaway is open internationally and will end on June 25th. If you say I referred you, you get +3 entries as well. So, go!

BUT, if you can't wait, read an EXCERPT here.

Have questions to ask Lauren? I'm going to interview her, so send me and she will probably answer them.

Note: the cover of the ARC of DELIRIUM image is from Traveling ARC Tours.

  9. Dois motivos principais, Priscila. Minha inspiração foram os blogs estrangeiros que, assim como os livros de YA que leio, são primitivamente na Língua Inglesa. Além disso, por ainda cursar inglês, quero testá-lo através desse tipo de comunicação -- experiência que eu tô AMANDO! Venho "conhecendo" pessoas de várias partes do mundo com quem divido a mesma paixão: livros. Sinto que, usando o Inglês, tenho mais oportunidades no meio da literatura YA. Parece estranho e improvável, mas eu gosto. De qualquer forma, a partir de Julho passarei a ter traduções dos meus posts para o Português. :) Obrigada por passar aqui ANYWAY.
