Book Review Preview: Delirium

I have a little story to tell you, little readers.  Three years ago on Thanksgiving, I picked up a book that I'd checked out of the library on a whim - The Hunger Games.  I wasn't blogging yet, didn't read blogs, and really knew nothing about it.  But I thought I'd give it a try.  I had a nerve block done the day before Thanksgiving, so I was completely numb from my rib cage down.  I was stuck in bed without tv and Luke was sleeping, so I was having a pity party when I decided to pick up this book and give it a shot.  From that point on (I read it in one sitting) I was in love.

Fast forward to this Thanksgiving.  I'm in Lubbock seeing Baby George (and the rest of the family, but serious we all know who this trip was about) and there's not that much to do when Baby George is busy nursing or sleeping (which is the vast majority of the time since he's only two weeks old).  Since I was bored, I decided to try another dystopian novel - Delirium.  It's not released until February, so I'm holding off on my critical review until then, BUT.  Oh my stars in heaven.  God knew I needed something to replace my love for the Hunger Games and he sent Lauren Oliver to create Delirium.  Love, love, love!  And, there are at least two more books being released - although I'll have to wait until 2012 for the next one.  But I'm totally fine with that.  Anticipation only made the Hunger Games that much more sweet, and I'm trusting that Delirium will be the same.  Look for my critical review closer to the release date.
